With an eye toward profiting from their camera-phone skills, photographers are submitting "microstock" images to stock photography companies; these Internet-based photo agencies accept royalty-free images from a far broader base of photographers than brick-and-mortar stock agencies. While the profits are quite low per sale those sales can really add up. In this book, Chen shows readers how to tailor their shooting approach and subject selection to meet the needs of the microstock industry. From camera settings to accessory and software selection, Chen shows readers how to choose and use the tools they need to create high-caliber image results. Next, he offers photographers tips for getting through the microstock submissions process and putting their images in front of a viewing audience. He introduces a host of tools for processing images for enhanced impact, as well. Tips and images from other professional photographers round out this one-of-a-kind, heavily illustrated book.
