Dolorous Dave Posted May 29, 2021 Share Posted May 29, 2021 Hello all, I have been uploading images for almost a year now and I would appriciate some feedback on how to improve. I have just read about the changes to the commision fees and I am rather disheartened by the prospect of dropping to 20% commision, as I am nowhere near the $250 minimum, and this will likely stiffle my enthusiasm for it all. I am realistic about my photographic skills as I am in a very early novice stage but I aspire to improve with time. I think I have a tendancy to photograph objects rather than concepts which might be limiting. After some very helpful (and appriciated) advice from this forum I have started using photo editing software which I think has helped. Due to lockdown I have been photographing historical items (old newspaper cuttings, military cap badges, old postcards, etc) which I find interesting but I understand it is rather a niche area so sales might be low for them. I have seen that a lot of feedback is around titles and tagging so I have always tried to have a full description for each picture, although I do often struggle with some of the tagging. Stats-wise I think my CTR rate is good (1.05 from 29 zooms) but this might just be because so few of my images turn up in peoples searches. I have 3 sales to date (I was thrilled with each one!) but they were all for personal use only. Thanks in advance for you time! https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/774126.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
