Cameras and what to buy
There are many pages about
buying a Digital Camera on my website see resource section.
Fuji Canon and Nikon are the most commonly used pro Digital camera.
You really do need a Single Lens Reflex camera for stock. A
zoom lens of 28mm to 200 or 300mm is best.
First you need to know WHAT to
THE MOST SALEABLE subjects
LIFESTYLE : Family pictures of ATTRACTIVE people doing fun and
interesting things (also things like shopping or choosing a house or
APPEALING ANIMALS - young animals (especially puppies and kittens)
sell well. Go to your local Zoo for exotic baby animals.
ANYTHING MONEY RELATED- Still
Life, luxury items, expensive cars, people on holiday.
MEMORIES - things from the past
that made YOU happy - child on a swing, fairground, playing with
puppies, days out etc.
CAPITAL CITIES of the World -
ICONIC postcard-style views still sell.(look at the postcards for
the viewpoint !) Beaches and famous views are popular.
BACKGROUNDS - every ad or commercial needs a background. Sand,
beaches, leaves, hillsides - NOT DISTRACTING things!
CHILDREN- happy smiling children's faces and activities- NEVER NUDE
CHILDREN (or you'll have the police round to see you.)
PEOPLE should always be DOING
SOMETHING - like kissing, gardening, sports, hobbies, etc.
FILL THE FRAME with the subject.
