Also remember the rules
of composition. The law of thirds works well and so
do tightly cropped images. The old rule of ěkeep it
simpleî applies. This is not a book about how to shoot
good images, there are thousands of such references
available, what we are teaching you here is how to
sell them online. Just remember, the images that sell
are the attractive appealing ones with good composition
and good exposure.
One thing to remember though is that as most of the agencies websites display
the images on thumbnail pages, having images that are attractive as thumbnails
increases your chance of a sale, this follows from the rules of compostition
and cropping already discussed.
Lesson Number one: Spend this week looking through
your photos. Pick out the 5 that you think will have
the best chance of selling.
