iStockphoto Image in Use

When shooting photography for iStockphoto and seeing your images sell, you often wonder where you photos are being used.

I had yet to find out where any of mine were being used, mainly because my portfolio on iStockphoto is still very small (82 photos with 40 downloads) in comparison to those that have been shooting stock longer or on a more full-time basis.

I found my first photograph in use this weekend, thanks to an e-mail from iStockphoto Administration. I had to read it twice to make sure I read it correctly.

My photo of a Bald Eagle sitting on a stump, shown here, was used in a cover design that is being submitted as one of iStock's Designer Spotlight Entries.

Needless to say, I am walking on cloud nine over this at the moment!

What the Heck is It! May 2009

I have been thinking about a new blog entry that would help make my blog a little more active. Here is a new addition I am starting this month, "What the Heck is It!".

After I post the image on the first of the month, if you would like to take a shot at what it is, post a comment. The first comment to show up with the correct answer is the winner, easy as that.

If this idea gets enough interest, I may start offering the winner a print of one of my photos. Does this sound like a good idea?
