How much can one earn from microstcok photography?

So we start from scratch. Assume that at the beginning we can add 20 images per month. So we have 20 pictures published and accepted in our protfolio. Everything now depends on how they like the community, photos, and more specifically the buyer.

Defines a very simple parameter, namely the number of downloads pictures in a month. (Abbreviated to DL`s / M - Downloads Per Month) This ratio determines the success or the flap of our newly added photographs. I think that for someone who starts his adventure with photography photos score above 10 DL`s / M is a success.

Okay, but how does it compare to earnings? From my current experience has shown that averaging a sold image translates into a 0.8 earned $. So, sold 100 photographs give us $ 80. On is a lot of pictures which DL`s / M exceeds the value 100

Lenses from Nikon

Recently I've been researching Nikon lenses. I'm a Canon user, but some of my friends always try to persuade me to check out Nikon. I don't think I will, but must admit they do have some good stuff. I mean once you're chosen your brand it's rather hard to change (not that I really want to!). But say I did want to chnage to Nikon, I'd have to sell all of my Canon gear and buy everything from a scratch. That's why it's so important for those companies to attract beginner photographers and automatically make them loyal customers.

Pinhole Camera Basics

Camera obscura, also known as pinhole camera, is nothing more than a cubic box with a hole on one side and the other screens available. The walls are painted from the inside in black. This reduces reflections. In this box, on the one hand, it is a small hole through which light enters. On the opposite side is a dull fast, which shows scaled down and inverted image.
