I got another reminder that the shots which appeal to me seldom push the buttons of the Editors at Getty Images which just yesterday selected a half dozen or so of my images they want to include in Getty’s Stock Photography Archive. (Somehow Archive seems a more appropriate word than portfolio to describe Gettys inventory which I think tops out at around 80 million images.) I’m always surprised at what appeals to them which no doubt is why if I depended on Photography to keep food on the table, I would starve to death. More often than not, what I consider simple shots, ie…throw aways…. always seem to be the images they want. BUT…this time there was one shot, a long view of the Sunflowers in the field, that I thought might have commercial application. I visualized it as an Album Cover. They took it. So perhaps after all these years I’m finally getting it. But then again….. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
