“It’s a great resources for people trying to get into the field. The information is concise and thorough, with step by step instructions on getting your photos submitted and approves in the most efficient way possible. Great links to software and other resources to make the job easier. Thank you very much.
One little suggestion. While there is some info on cameras, I think it would be helpful to have a little more explanation as to what to look for in a digital camera, such as image sensor size, megapixels, etc, to get good crisp pictures. Especially for non-DSLR cameras to use as backup.” <Source – Shutterstock Forum>

For anyone wanting to enter into the sometimes confusing world of Micro Stock Photography I would highly recommend the website www.backyardsilver.com. This extremely informative site and proprietor Steve Heap’s excellent e-book “Get Started in Stock” brings all the necessary information together in a fun and easy to follow but detailed manner. But beyond that, Steve continues to give with his monthly newsletters and is quick to answer a direct question should the need arise. Thanks Steve… A round of applause to you! – Jeannie, Virginia
