My 7th submission was STILL rejected - help me understand QC terms!

Recommended Posts

Aully,

 

As someone who has been with Alamy for more than a decade and also

someone who has a limited budget to invest in equipment, I will tell you that

in my opinion it is more about the images and the care that you take after you

take the picture that matters.  The most licensed image that I have on Alamy

almost every month for the last several years was shot with a Kodak / Nikon

DCS 620, a 2.1 MP DSLR, shot at 1600 ISO.  It took me almost a solid month

the finish the image using Photoshop 3 and Noise Ninja.  I also have a few images

shot with Canon G3's and G9's, my pocket camera and I use the Canon G's

to ski with,  Those images have been licensed a number of times.

 

My advice is that it is about the image and common sense post processing, the

worse the camera the more you nee to pay attention to your post.

I wouldn't bust yourself up too much.  Take pictures because that's what you like doing.  

 

As for Alamy as a income source, there are way easier ways to make a living.  I'm a long term professional photographer with years of photos on the Alamy site, and it really doesn't generate much more than beer money.

There is 4/3rds AND micro 4/3rds.

 

The micro part refers to the lens/camera mount.

 

The 4/3rds is the sensor size in both cases.

 

Sorry to be pedantic.

Not a problem, but 4/3rds without being Micro is close to obsolete (Leica used 4/2rds at one point, but moved on to larger sensors).  The m4/3rds is still viable.

That's the important thing for me. If you like making pictures then carry on with whatever camera you can afford.

 

If you give up photography simply because you can't get on Alamy, then you weren't really into it anyway - and you were never going to do much on Alamy.
