I just finished reading the book Microstock Money Shots: Turning Downloads into Dollars with Microstock Photography written by Ellen Boughn.
Ellen, has worked in the stock industry for more than 30 years, making her one of the today’s go to consultants in the subject.
In this book she describes with detail all aspects of the microstock industry, and what’s the best approach to convert your images into dollars.
The book is very well written and designed, easy to understand and read with tons of good information, including what sell and what doesn’t, she also covers the most popular themes, working with models, keywording, model and property releases and all the legalese needed to work in the industry.
In sum, this is a great book to anyone who wants to start in the complex but fun world of microstock, but also great for people already producing stock, because contains plenty of great ideas and information.
If you’re interested you can get it from Amazon by clicking here.
