Another Attempt @ Breaking the Creativity Block

I’ve been photographing items with the intent of putting ‘em on iStockPhoto.com. I don’t have any grand delusions about making money on there, but it’s kind of a fun venture. After two attempts at getting “accepted” into the photo community, I finally made it a couple of weeks ago. Yay! Even though I use a fairly high end camera -- Canon Powershot G6, my photos were still producing excess pixilation. I have to use a program called “Neat Image” to smooth my photos. While I think it makes them less sharp, iStockPhoto finds them to be more acceptable. My guess is that for printing purposes, especially, the smoothed pixel look works much better.  I hope to be adding images on there shortly. Keep an eye out for my pix here.
