My Photography Related Hubpages


Recently, I have been writing a lot about photography at a place called Hubpages.  I have been with that community for a couple of years but have not done a lot on it.  I figured since I was becoming so involved with my photography and have set some pretty high goals for myself for 2011, why not share things I have learned along the way.

I believe it was last year I wrote a page called The Love of Photography I just talk a little about how much I love photography and show a few pictures from my less experienced days.  Although, today I still consider myself an amateur photographer, I have learned a lot.  I look back on my older photo's and can see now why so many have been rejected from 123RF a stock photography site.  

Even though I am trying to view Rejection from a different perspective, it still lead me to write a page called:  Moving on from Rejection  I went through this long process of applying at this other stock photography place and submitted ten of my (best) photos and after waiting for days, I received an email stating every picture was rejected.  They did not accept one of my photos!  Then I remembered that I had signed up with 123RF almost two ago and never submitted anything to them after they rejected all but four of my photos.  Like a doctors visit I wanted a second opinion about the photography this other stock photography site rejected, so I resubmitted those pictures to 123RF and some were accepted.  Okay, this is a start right?

I am almost too embarrassed to tell you the rejections compared to the acceptance of my photography to this point, BUT I have learned a lot about improving my photography by learning from my mistakes!  I took some of the fantastic tips I have learned and wrote a page called:  Photography Tips for Amateur's  Since I have been applying the things I have learned to my photography, I am getting more acceptance instead of rejections.  Don't get me wrong, I still have rejections BUT even I can tell why the pictures were rejected.  I have questioned three rejections and waiting to hear back from them as to why these pictures were rejected.

I have also started writing more about photography on Squidoo.  I recently was invited to join Professional Squids on Rockmoms and our first project was to write a niche related page, so I wrote:  Pictures of Tropical Flowers   With as many floral pictures as I take, I should be able to follow through on this niche.  

So that is the scoop with what I have been doing lately.  If you love doing photography, look into 123RF- If any of your photos are rejected learn from it and you will be amazed how much you can tell the difference in your work. Another cool thing is to open up a separate Zazzle Gallery to separate your photography from your artwork.  I recently did that at WhiteOak's Photography

Until Next time,
