Hi All

I would like to start a race for the new folks around here to encourage a bit of friendly competition. The aim is to get to 125 downloads, and increase your portfolio.

I propose that the rules should be that you currently should have less than 40 uploads, and less than 15 downloads. I also think that you should have been a member of IStockphoto for less than 6 months (so it is a newbie competition). ETA First Upload a max a 6 months old.

If anyone would like to join then please site mail me or reply.

Cheers Jo

Hi Shank_ali

Thank you for your interest but you are a little outside the criteria. However what I will do is add you to the Compare application. You can be the inspiration for us newbies.  I hope that is cool with you.

Cheers Jo

I'll play along, if we can do two races at once. I've joined the Ultimate Race just to see if I could come in second to last

I think this should be fun.  Hopefully more people will sign up so we all get pushed more.  I have a few more pics on the way if they pass inspection.  I will let you know.  Good luck everyone!

Can I be another honourary member? Someone has to push Shank along. Maybe it can be a two tiered race. Very newbies and veteran newbies (I only got accepted in December!).

Hello,


 


I would love to be part of the race aswell.  I have been a member since early december and I have six pics in my profile none of which have been downloaded.  This will give me the incentive I need for sucess.

I'd really love to play.... I meet the criteria on uploads and downloads, but my first file was uploaded in June of 07, but my first download wasn't until 10/07.  Any chance of bending the 6-month rule? Please?

Hi Box5


I'll put you down as honorary for sure and will ask the other full members as it is just timescale you are missing out on. You can find your name on the stats page now.

As for techniques, I try to get the picture as perfect as possible when I shoot it. I know alot of people edit on this website which is very understandable considering this is stock photography. I know how to use photoshop but personally i rather not use it for my photos. This may not be for everyone, but I get more gratification from taking the perfect picture and not needing to edit it. Lighting has proven to be the most important factor of a picture. If the lighting is not good it can lead to artifacting and degrade the picture as a whole.

I have worked for a wedding photographer for over a year now, and she has taught me to shoot the perfect picture instead of fixing your picture to be perfect. I know alot of people will dissagree with this but this is how I like to approach my photography.
