Just realized you are trolling.

Well, I looked over the portfolio of this guy and I'm really far from being amazed by its sheer image and composition quality.

I think he has a better talent in ironic writing than taking photos as the post above really made me laugh for almost an hour.  ;D

Lame

Definitely have seen a lot better though out of amateurs, especially with the bird shots.  I've got a couple of contacts on Flickr that blow his doors off.

I think it is a sarcastic remark at the noob (or any for that many) microstock photographer.

I think he's bumping up his ranking on his website by driving traffic to it.

1. Would you please tell me what is the best type of camera to use to get professional pictures. I can afford up to maybe $200 for a camera, since I figure my sales here will pay for it.
Personally I would advise you to stay away from DSLRs. They attract sensor dust and the mechanical click always give some motion blurr. Hey, this is the electronics age anyways! We don't use valve and cogwheel powered computers any more too, right?

Also, mechanical shutters only have 100,000 life cycles and since stock is a numbers game, you will need many more than 100,000 to get a decent living out of stock.

DSLRs are also very bulky. A nice slim point and shoot that fits in your trousers is great to make covert shots of people in public places. After all, you can use Photoshop (CS3 premium extended with Signature Plugin) to create the proper Model Releases. Just one caveat though. Don't name them all John Doe, but be creative! Joe Down, Josh Does or John Cow. Cows sell very well actually.

Hope this helps!

For convenience nothing beats a quality camera phone.  You can get one for a lot less than $200.  Talk about your stealth shots...

Pretty funny but a bit over the top. I could have done it in ten questions.  ;)

Plus he forgot to plug his referral links and the one to the new hot side in lower Slabovia, paying high commissions.  ::)

He forgot to ask about review times for his latest batch of uploads, and he didn't mention once, how his photos weren't showing up as high in the searches as some other peoples, so there must be a conspiracy.

He didn't find his rejections unfair, because other people had photos just like them, already on the sites.

Otherwise... it's just humor. Nothing to get upset about.

The funny thing is I found his post quite inspiring.

After having a look on his site, and the images he has on Alamy, I am tempted to give RM a go, something which I had been reluctant to do as I wasn't sure if my images were good enough. However after seeing his portfolio, I think it's worth trying.

I've bookmarked his site for inspiration.

Yes I found this one very inspirational. Remarkable and creative use of the on-cam flash with hard strong shadows to make the subject stand out. Not to mention the composition.  ;D

Good points, and now that you forced me to go look, I agree. This guy has nothing to stand on to criticize anyone in Micro.

Maybe it was Darrell's Brother Darrell who started all this. Oh wait, the "inspirational" random Holsteins in a field are a dead give-away!  ;D

6. See my style in the cow picture? Will that type sell? Is it a pro style? I put the cow right in the middle because I read that the eye finds it better in the middle. Is that best?



Am I mistaken? Or are there pictures of cows in your portfolio. ???

lol,  Is this a knock on microstockers? Or just some strange obsession w/ bovine.  :-\
