A few months ago I submitted a couple of photos to a Guru Shots photo contest and ended up placing in the top 102 photo in their Striking Shots Competition. This photo is now on the Digital Camera World website, #43 of 102.
Today I’m shooting the USS Ronald Reagan departing Yokosuka, Japan.
More stock that recently sold
When I started shooting stock photography a few years ago, I would set out with a goal to shoot one subject only and had blinders on the to rest of what was around me. My whole approach is different now, keeping in mind that these flag photos may be the real money makers.
This year I decided to post nothing but my stock patriotic photos for the long Fourth of July weekend using photos of flags flying where I live in Coronado, California.
I could have taken an incredible photo of this lady with the sun going down behind her as she sat on a blanket and an American flag pillow over her husbands grave, our conversation was better than any photo I could have taken.
