globaleyeimages's insight:

All good basic tips, but for totally marketable travel shots...  make sure you also capture the 'experience' of the destination... ie. other people responding to whatever it is that caught your attention. The shots that make viewers think, "hey I'd like to experience that myself". Those are the travel shots buyers can't get enough of.

Consider the power of puppies in marketing for your next campaign. Despite the popularity of cat memes, puppies and dogs are most popular.
globaleyeimages's insight:

As a dog-person, this one is kind of reassuring! As a photographer, it's also handy to know.

 

A lot of the memes I see being passed around are pretty ordinary photography of very strong content... so there could be an opportunity there to create some better quality images that provoke similar responses? 

 

If buyers want that emotional response in the viewer, and they don't want mediocre images that have been passed around the web for years, seems RM is going to be the best option?

10 Incredible Photo Manipulation Artists

10 Incredible Photo Manipulation Artists | Selling Photography | Scoop.it
Put simply, photo manipulation is changing photos to create an illusion. Widely accepted as an art form, photo manipulation requires skill as well as an active imagination. Using Photoshop and other photo editing tools, digital artists have recently taken it to mind-blowing levels, creating everything from surreal and dark environments to strange and otherworldly animals.
