Macbeth the Usurper


I've been asked to resubmit to a stock photo site.

If you want to DOUBT that you have any ability, resubmit. What could I submit that they have not seen before?

Part of the issue is that most of my best work is done under lousy conditions. The people grab you, but the photos have issues on a technical level.

This is a very frustrating.

The stupid part is that I can browse the stock site and see that I can do as well as their average stock photo.

Anyhow, back to my photos, where  I can only see what is wrong with them.

Main trouble is, most of them aren't "stock" to begin with. They are quite pleasing and knock people's socks off scrolling by as a screensaver, but they aren't stock.

There are two issues with stock: it mus be an appealing picture, and it must be a picture appealing to the audience that wants to buy stock photos. There's the trick.
