Thank you very much.

I'm quite a newbie too but I'd suggest you not to waste your time with photos of mandarines on grey background and ducks on the lake, there are TOO many of them already on every stock site. Try shooting model released Asian people lifestyle, kids, there are some nice shots on your profile but I guess they are editorial, right? Those subjects are surely more unique. And make videos as well, even HD. Your camera is most likely capable of it. All you need is some light tripod or affordable monopod. Try uploading your content to Motion Elements and Pixta sites too, they are quite Asia-focused I guess.

Thank you very much for your comment. It's value for me and I get ideas to take photo for next time.

Thank you again. ^^

Irina, isn't editing videos for microstock very difficult? So far I have only taken photos. I think that's better at the beginning. However I am uploading to microstock for nearly a year now and slowly would like to start taking vides as well.

It isn't difficult, there is a lot of free and simple software to edit. You can start making videos with minimum adjustments like some cutting in the beginning or in the ending of the original clip. Just make sure setting white balance about correct while shooting. In fact you can just make videos when you are making photos with the same camera.l

Your video gallery is very impressive! However, I was wondering how you did the dolly shots? Do you use any extra equipment, or just handhold your camera?

I guess you answered your own question... Those shots are made using a slider or a small dolly.

You are right, that is mostly small slider :) 60 cm is ok since objects are quite small.

Irina, since you guide me last time, i have uploaded more portrait image to my portfolio and got downloaded from customer.

thank you again for suggest me.

Glad it works :)
Try adding pictures (and videos!) of them doing something natural: drinking water, running on the street, talking to each other, playing smartphone game or using VR headset for the phone e t.c. And pay more attention to background, it could be more interesting than just a wall or fence.
