Three years ago today, Terry and I got married here in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower. Photographer Shelly Perry took pictures. And just ten minutes ago, 25 of those stock photos sold in her online stock photo agency. With stock photos you don’t always know which photos will sell best until you make them available for sale. And you don’t always know where you’ll find them in use either. Our wedding photos have appeared in picture frames at our local department store, on Office Depot photo paper, on magazine covers and on at least a dozen websites. I don’t know where these 25 photos that sold today will show up. But I hope I find them in a magazine or on TV. Shelly Perry’s stock photos have appeared in Oprah magazine, on the American Music Awards, on book covers and more. I’ll include a sample below of the wedding photos that sold today so that you might keep your eye out for them (and let me know if you see them). I’ll also include a few photos Shelly took at the Eiffel Tower today — on the very spot she took our wedding photos — to mark our third anniversary (and growing family). And while I’m at it, here’s a photo tip to keep in mind no matter what kind of shots you’re taking: “More or Less” Shelly said this phrase so often at last week’s stock photography workshop here in Paris that attendees will hear it in their sleep for years to come. So what does it mean? Essentially it means: Get it all in your shot or crop it like you mean it. Clipping someone’s toe off or slightly shaving off the top of their head in your photo is a bad thing. But cropping in further and cutting off more than just a sliver looks intentional and artistic. The same is true for other subjects or strong elements in your shot. Take, for instance, the Eiffel Tower in this shot Shelly took today… Lori Allen She told me: “I was so concerned about capturing the baby, that on several occasions my overall composition went out the window (which can happen easily when you’re shooting quickly). I chopped off just the tip of the Eiffel Tower, which looks like a mistake (and it was). But again, I was concentrating on the baby’s face and getting her attention so that she’d look at me through the camera. I had to work fast, so I lost sight of the Tower and focused on the baby. To fix this and make it look intentional, I’ll need to crop in tighter when I process the photo in Lightroom.” Here’s the photo as it will appear when Shelly uploads it for stock… Scroll down to see more pictures from today’s shoot and a look at some of the 25 photos that sold today from our wedding shoot three years ago. Till next week, — Lori Lori Allen Director, Great Escape Publishing P.S. We still have a few seats left in Shelly Perry’s photo editing workshop in Portland, OR this June 13-15. Shelly has not only agreed to lead this three-day workshop but also to supply each attendee with three to four custom-made Lightroom Presets from her library. Presets are templates you can use as a base to process your images. Load them on your computer and with a click of a button, your photo will automatically edit itself according to Shelly’s instructions. Most of the time, it’ll work perfectly. Other times, you may have to adjust a little here and there if your shot is accidentally over or under exposed. Either way, you’ll cut your processing time in half and you’ll be one step closer to submitting more of your photos for stock. Class size will be strictly limited to nine attendees. And, in addition to the Presets, you’ll get videos of everything you learn so you’ll remember, step-by-step, how to fix all the remaining photos in your library and upload them for sale when you get home. If you take a lot of pictures but don’t really have the time (or know-how) to sit down and process them all, you’ll find this workshop invaluable. You may be sitting on a goldmine of stock photos in your library and you don’t even know it. Get details on joining Shelly in Portland at our new Post Processing Workshop — with pricing and other details. You’re guaranteed to learn a lot and it’ll be fun too.    MORE FROM PARIS… ** Paris Attendees Final Farewell: Pictures and Videos from this year’s Stock Photo Expedition in Paris ** Tips and Tricks for Getting Better Photos at Night [Editor’s Note: Learn more about how you can turn your pictures into cash in our free online newsletter The Right Way to Travel.  Sign up here today and we’ll send you a new report, Selling Photos for Cash: A Quick-Start Guide, completely FREE.]
