Thanks. Yes, but I don’t always use the underexposed photo. I’ll take some regular exposed photos too and go with the one that looks the best to me.
Thank you. The living off Sociey6 print sales is not true. It’s definitely growing since I started last summer but I’m not there yet. My only income had been from iStockphoto since 2005 until I started selling prints.
I would suggest to put up stuff people will buy and the rest should take care of itself. I had no strategy or plan with S6, but it just worked out.
I guess but sometimes mid-day light can work. And when it’s foggy or overcast, all day is good.
Yes, that photo is currently for sale with a royalty free license on iStockphoto.com/kevinruss
I don’t really sell iPhone photos for books, magazines, etc. I haven’t tested how large an iPhone photo can be printed. I edit all my iphone photos on my phone and am limited to the cheesy filters.
Thank you! The storm one is now available.
One of their employees sent me an email asking if I wanted to sell some prints through them.
It took me about 6 months with iStock but things were different 8 years ago.
Unless the iPhone’s tap/hold exposure lock counts as manual, full auto is the only option.
Thanks. Sometimes I take a while and shoot 5-10 shots of the same thing but other times it’s real quick or from the car. Overall though, I’m fast and only spend a couple minutes on a scene before I move on. For the animals it’s the same way. Sometimes I see them from afar and take my time coming up to them but other times I just happen upon them and only have one or two shots to take before they run away. The online popularity seemed to come pretty quick. After that video of me and my photos went up, things just took off.
Thank you. Yes, I’ve thought about doing a book, just not sure when or how to go about it.
I wouldn’t by an iPhone just for the camera but if you need a phone, get it.
Use relevant keywords, no spam. That’s the only rule I’ve heard when keywording for stock.
I use public land and walmarts when they are available. When they aren’t I usually try and fit in with other cars I find that are parked somewhere overnight. I use public showers when I find them but I’ve learned to go without showers for a week or two. I have sold iPhone photos on iStock and Getty but I make more money with them on Society6. I talk about this on a recent podcast interview I did:
Since the shoot was free they were willing to sign the model release.
Thank you. No, never have.
It was in Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s Lake Helene and Odessa Lake in the bottom left.
