happy new year!

My Christmas decoration photos are my best selling photos, so I added a few more of those this year.

Some are isolated on white…

and some are on a Christmas tree.

I added another file in my My Vetta lightbox ! It is one of London night shots, I made in May. I spent more time editing this photo and I guess it paid off.

And below is before and after:

Today iStockphoto launches a new referral program, from which buyers and contributors are supposed to benefit. For Buyers it promises 10 free credits for first purchase, and a contributor can choose between $20 flat rate, 20 credits or 20% commission on a referred customer sale.

New referral program is still beta version, but it promises detailed tracking of clicks and views on our Istock widgets, links and emails, providing number of clicks, views and earning made with this program.

Downside of this new referral program (at least for me) is widgets and links I have on my blog and iStock site.  I had to change all my existing links in order to make them work. And there are a few minor bugs, which are not worth to mention, since they promised to fix them soon.

So please, feel free to explore whole iStockphoto collection or just my portfolio through links and banners in this post or a blue widget on the right side of my blog. I hope you’ll like what you see, and maybe you’ll even sign up, and get 10 free credits.

In a severe Angry Birds obsession, that affected whole family, I bought my kids very much desired Angry Birds plush toys. In hoping, they won’t use all my furniture as smashing props for »real life Angry Birds game«, I snatched birds for a photo shoot. I hope birds will bring back at least part of the money I paid for them. :-)

I know it’s been months since I got back from London, but it’s better write post late than never…  :D

So, in this lightbox are some photos I took in London. I brought back much more, but it takes time to edit them, so lightbox will grow much bigger over time. There are some editorial photos as well as creative photos. I also attended a “minilypse” shooting, where I tried shooting with real models – for the first time.  It is a valuable experience.

I succeeded to get only one photo in Vetta collection and I admit I was hoping for more.

Counting down the days to departure and making the lists of things to bring along… because I’m going to LONDON - again!!!
I’ll be attending my first iStockalypse, just as a social participant, but I think is going to be a great experience…

I’m really looking forward to put faces to the names and avatas, form iStock forums :-)

Since beginning of the year, iStockphoto accepts content, which sells with Editorial Use Only license. That gives us a lot more opportunities to shoot.
Photos of products, events, landmarks and architecture, that couldn’t be accepted for standard RF licensing, can be accepted now for Editorial Use Only licensing.
We are now scanning our hard drives for old travel shots, that couldn’t be uploaded till now, because of missing model releases or copyrighted architecture or landmarks.

So far I did some product shoots. I started with things that make me hungry, and things that make me thirsty:  :-)
Editorial Use Only

And I’m making a lot of plans where and what to shoot for editorial content. And I wish a day would have more than 24 hours, and a week more than 7 days (preferably extra day or two during the weekend  :-) )

As I made some profit with my new Christmas and New Year decoration pictures, I decided to try some Easter decoration motives too. After a few days of shooting and editing, most of those pictures are now accepted and waiting to appear in my portfolio (hope that will happen soon).

So, here are some eggs and chicks…  :-)

I guess this blog, and maybe a Twitter, is the only way to make newly accepted photos on iStock visible this days. Five days since accepted, those two files are still not visible to anyone but me. They are here and here, hidden in my portfolio and unsearchable.

This and some other glitches make me wander, if iStock has changed from a microstock agency as it used to be, into something different. By that, I’m not referring to income cut by new RC policy, but agency performance from contributor point of view. I don’t feel like asset to the agency anymore, but liability.

I hope, buyers don’t feel the same.
