Paulstw Posted June 24, 2013 Share Posted June 24, 2013 In 2010 I moved out of the city and to the countryside. I bought a bridge camera to take nice pics of the views I had around me. That spiral ended up with me here today with about £2000 of equipment and a totally different direction. I quite like Alamy as it gives me a place where I can have a goal. "Get so many images""Find a gap in a market""take better shots" However, sometimes I feel like everyone and their gran wants to get into photography, and "everyones doing it, so what makes you special" kind of thing. I traveled about 40 miles to get this shot, and to me its quite something, but without majorly over processing it, it kind of looks the same as everything else and I wonder if we're being numbed into a world where we don't really find much interesting anymore. I often think that the key to great photography is to convey the effort put in. I guess something that comes with time. For all anyone knows I could have taken this out my back garden and not 1800ft up a hill. The other point to my thinking today is that it's all very well having a huge catalogue of images on Alamy, but how many of those images would you truly consider to be totally outstanding? and I think this is where a lot of "Why aren't my images selling" threads come from. If we don't have pride in our work (counting me in here) then how do we expect to sell anything? Having an off day.... Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
