 ;DHi all.

Congratulations to you all, the blessed, is here.
Sometimes, I wonder. By looking at the turnover in the list of sales figures, sales are very rare, with a scenery topic. And that became my question is, in use for what, a buyer, buying a picture of scenery? Your answers will help me taking my image of the scenery the next time.
thank you

best regards

Isn't this the same question you asked before?  The answers wont change, you either do some research, find what sells and work hard at producing those photos with a strong concept or you put up with low sales.  All the information on what sells is out there.  CanStockPhoto might not be the best site to look, SS and istock are the big microstock sites.

Go to http://www.canstockphoto.com/beach-rock-9009824.html

Then check "similiar photos" tab, and put Yourself as a buyer. Probably You prefer buy same scenery photo, with other level of quality. After all, the price is the same.

I'm not a "Yuri's successful photographer likely" but every week someone ask me the same, privately: "This kind of work will sell?"

My answers are the same for any kind of photographer:

- There's no "divine formula" about "what sells better".  Even I'm searching  the right niche for it...
- What are Your skills on photography? For example, I suck ( ok, I hate ) on lifestyle photography, so why loose time doing it against good photographers with huge portfolios? There is something that i shoot better than others? If "Yes", I'll bet on those type of subjects.
- What have You around that most of US haven't.. for example, You live on Indonesia right? What Indonesia have as unique subject? Their people, their monuments? Man, if i need get some Indonesia architecture I ( and most of us ) need spend too much $$$ to get those kind of shoots... but You don't!

Think about that.

 ;DHi Coisax

Your explanation makes sense. In shooting pictures sometimes we just think of a good view and good, but without thinking, how the sight, that in the search by the buyer. So I want to put my mind a pattern there. So with this discussion, I hope to improve the image object to be selected. So, thanks to your information, it is useful to my way of thinking. And I appreciate it, thanks again.

regards
