thanks all for the advice. I forgot about no flowers in the first 10. Do you think the apples would be okay with a reshoot and better crop? Thanks again


Tons of apples here also!
Forget Kiwi's you will need to find something very unique if you want to do food or flowers

Here is a little bit of advice
Think about your other interests, like sports, hobbies, things that you know well, think about the images you can create based around these other interests.
Here is an example or two, I am interested in hunting so I have images that pertain to hunting/animals, etc








I hope this gives you an idea as to the variety of images I can take based around my other interests. Obviously I also have shots of ammunition, guns, and other related subjects like calls, etc.

I have collected stamps on and off for 55 years, so have tons of images of them





Obviously these are editorial only images with fewer possible sales, but there are other editorial subjects you might consider, for example Barry Bonds is a friend of mine and these are images from his personal booth at the last game he played for the Giants.



I love traveling and doing panoramas, so have many of those types of images, so I hope this has given you food for thought ;-)

Thanks so much for the ideas. I will lose the apples and try something else.

Wow, we haven't heard from Heather in a long long time. Howzit goin?


Not too bad - trying to make a gradual return to the forums in an attempt to get myself back into photography. I've hardly touched my camera since I graduated just over a year ago, and I figured the best way to get back into it was to have a look at what everyone else is doing and remind myself of just what the standard is/what to avoid etc.

Plus, I missed you guys! Did I miss anything exciting?

I'm gutted that my Donald Sutherland gif has stopped working. I was dead proud that I found that.
