These is my first submission to Stock and do not know what went wrong.  If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

These photos were all rejected for tech issues.  The photos are all at public parks and not easily identifiable, as far as I can tell. 

Also, photos are all taken with my Galaxy Note 9.  Perhaps there is a setting that will help me take acceptable photos for Stock.  I read that Stock accepts mobil phone photos.  Is there more I need to know about submitting mobil photos?

Thank you in advance!

Stephanie

Hi @StephanieJane5,

Welcome to Stock Contributors.

 

Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for their million dollar commercial ads. See links below.

I won't tell you not to use a mobile phone camera because they are convenient and simple to operate.  But it won't be easy to get highest picture quality without going the extra distance to reduce grain, motion and unwanted artifacts. Examine your images at 100-200% magnfication and you will see focus problems.

 

Get a camera with highest mega pixels possible.  Clean your lens and sensor. Use manual focus and settings.   Steady yourself against a solid object or use a special tripod.  See link below for more tips.

Thanks Nancy for the feed back.  Photography is my new hobby.  Eventually, my intention is to purchase a good camera.  Any suggestions for a camera that will do well for me starting out.  Would be great if a camera could "grow" with me as my skills improve.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you again,

Steph

Hi @StephanieJane5,

I like Canon and Nikon.  Price isn't always an indication of quality.  But a good entry-level DSLR with good lenses won't be cheap. Budget accordingly and get what you can comfortably afford. See link below.

Do enroll in some photography courses where you'll learn composition, lighting and photographic technique.  Have fun!

Hello,

You also need to think about the composition of your photos. The composition isn't very good I'm afraid.

The sun in the fourth photo shows a white burnt-out blob.

Thought needs to be put in for stock photos.
