Although the concept is simple enough there is things you need to learn in order to be successful.
Taking good pictures is obviously an aspect of getting good sales. You don’t have to be a professional photographer since buyers of stock photography need pictures of almost anything. Your photos have to be very much in focus and be void of any noise. The colors have to be neat, completely balanced and not too dull. You cannot have any marks, signatures or logos on the pictures to confine there ownership. Your pictures should not look like you were a tourist and have a more creative touch.

The people who are buying stock photography are marketers, advertisers, website makers, magazines, and graphic designers (to name a few).
