Last week, we looked at a very simple photo that sells like gangbusters as stock. This week, let’s take a look at a few other stock photos that sell like crazy: Over 2,800 sales. Over 4,300 sales! Over 6,600 sales!! What do these three photos have in common? They all have lots of copy space — meaning, all of them have an area where a designer could easily place text. Incorporating copy space in your photos gives you an edge, as it makes your photo more USEFUL to designers. When you go out to shoot photos for stock, make sure that you take a few that have lots of copy space — whether that’s open blue sky, even green grass, a white wall, or some other form of copy space. Next week, we’ll take a closer look at how to incorporate copy space into your photos. — Bonnie Bonnie Caton Great Escape Publishing Breakfast Stock Club [Editor’s Note: Learn more about how you can turn your pictures into cash in our free online newsletter The Right Way to Travel.
