A guide to the essentials of stock photography; picking agencies, creating metadata, and shooting buyer-friendly images.
Web-based stock photography has become one of the biggest income streams for photographers around the world, and has democratised the process, making it easy for just about anyone to sign up and sell their work. Not all photographers, however, can navigate the terminology, let alone understand that keywording will have more effect on their sales than the photo itself. This book will break anyone into that world:
Metadata - Understand how to label and keyword your pictures so people find and buy them
Create space - Discover how stock photos are used so you can compose pictures that will work for everyone
Comparisons - See comparisons between more and less successful photographs assessed by the author
