Making Money from Thanksgiving Photographs

Hmmm, sounds unrealistic, doesn't it--making money from your family's Thanksgiving dinner.

You can, though make money from the photographs you take at your Thanksgiving dinner.

Think about the photographs you've seen with respect to Thanksgiving.

As you can see, there are many examples you can find if you type "Thanksgiving dinner" into the Google image search engine.

Many of these are stock photos. Stock photography can be very lucrative as there are many shops set up where you can submit your photos online and get paid when people use them.

I offer some tips for taking stock photos here.

You have to remember the following if you're going to be photographing stock--

1. Your image needs to be absolutely clear at 100 percent of it's actual size.
2. You need to have releases for your subjects (people you're photographing).
3. You'll need to take some unusual shots, shots of subjects and objects from unusual angles and perspective.

With these tips, you're likely to gather some really great stock photos of the Thanksgiving dinner!
