I don’t know whether it is holiday season buyers looking for an undiscovered treasure, or the iStockphoto Best Match sort algorithm pushing new files up a bit, but I’ve had quite a few first sales of both new and old images this week. Low downloaded images can help give your business a boost from uniqueness – at least for a while. Here’s a look at some images that people are licensing for the first time.
This image is from a new series with an American football referee. I’d been wanting to do this for a while and finally found a local park that has a really nice public football field. And we had a nicely overcast day, most of the time.
This Santa image was initially shot back in 2010. I reprocessed a few from this series recently, as I found I didn’t really like how warmly I had processed the reds and flesh tones.
Happy Thanksgiving! I picked a few more out from this series from last year that I hadn’t initially processed, and someone was in the mood for turkey this week.
Cheers! There’s a buyer somewhere working on a New Year’s Eve promotion, methinks.
From my extensive “exam room” series, here’s one with a mother consulting with her pediatrician.
Looking ahead to Spring, someone grabbed this never-before-licensed image of a grassy area. I thought this would be more popular in the past – check out all that blank copyspace.
Lastly, this one was from a series that I had shot in March two years ago, planning ahead. I planned so far ahead, that I forgot I shot it, and just found it recently when looking for another image. Merry Christmas!
I’ve got in the neighborhood of a thousand images that have never been downloaded in my iStockphoto.com portfolio. Plus a ton of others with low counts. See what you can find, if you’re tired of the same ‘ole same ‘ole. Thanks!
