Funny old week, starts off with me thinking I've made a right old horlicks of some of the shots I'd taken on holiday but I hadn't...lose my specs..anyone seen a nice metal tin with a frog on it???? So I thought I'd have a wander around the far reaches of image libraries I have stuff on...well blow me on Alamy I found out I'd sold some stuff ages ago, just so happens they don't pay out cheques just BACs or paypal, so registered for paypal....nice... and what a shocker..Mr Getty you sold something for a lot of cash after months of nothing...hmmm then BBC history magazine gets in touch and would like to chuck some dosh in my direction...nice...so I'm going to do the lottery tonight....on a roll
Right okay, I've got to say, you are one lucky or maybe brilliant photographer if you can make a living out of image library sales, some do, good luck to you most it's bits and pieces, always a nice addition to the flow of money but not something you can always count on, in fact I've been a right lazy monkey these last few months and hardly 'upped' anything to a library...will change and I'll save the bulk to when the light closes in and telly will still be naff and there's time to get the keywording spot on...oh no I hear you groan...he's off on one about keywording...well just think...how do you search on Google ????? yep words, think about how you would search for your images and then....that's right...add them as keywords to your images....and you never know...Alamy, the BBC and Getty might sell something for you.
TFI friday..cakes to make it's party time!!!!! Lets hope for some sunshine next week as there is a log jam for outdoor photography courses, putting together a beginners course so that will be up next week and for all my pupils the learning zone will be online as well...but for now back to the cakes...Beetroot and Choccy and next White choc and Chilli..... Mary Berry...step to one side, I'm coming through.
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
