I would like to get into selling some of my photographs,and stock photography seems to be one viable option.My first and foremost love is Nature photography,however it doesn't exactly seem to be a big seller,because the market is just saturated.I also like Macro photography and that may be another way to go.
So what are the best ways to go about getting into stock photography?I'm not much of a people person photographer.I have just gotten into taking all my shots in RAW,although I still have a few problems with noise issues.
I have submitted photos to :Fotolia, ShutterStock,Dreamstime,Bigstock Photo,IstockPhoto and just recently Can Stock Photo.However so far only a handful of photos has been accepted.
Any advice on how to break into this field,type of photos,would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

hmmm. not sure what you are wanting.

You have found all the sites so step one is done.

You have taken some pictures so step two is done :)

There ARE some high selling nature shots so the possibility is there, you just have to get some stunning shots to upload :)  and get lucky in the searches.

Feel free to post some pics on the site for critique if you want.
