I would like to offer some of my photos on adobe stock and have only received rejections on my images so far.
Maybe you can help me to improve my work.
The pictures are mostly atmospheric, dark and with little depth of field - is that always a criterion for exclusion?
Are the pictures generally too noisy?
Yes the photos are all too dark.
The 1st photo is too noisy and needs an IP release.
The 2nd photo has aberation in the background and needs an IP release.
The 3rd photo has overexposed highlights.
thanks for your quick response. Did I also need an IP release for products without brand names on it?
1st one... yes think you are right
2nd... ok, but do you think after fixing it is a chance for the picture?
3rd... Okay, but this is a sparkler, how can I photograph without overexposed lights? all the lights on a firework are overexposed, aren't they?
thanks a lot for you helt
You need an IP release for any recognisable product. That is, the maker or designer would recognise this as their design. Picture#2 is a good example of this. Brand names are different - they are not allowed in normal submissions at all, not even with a release, I think. Picture#1 is a good example of this.
Remember your photos may be used in adverts to sell anything, even rival products, and you must confirm you have all the rights to do that. Yet, if the picture of Kentucky Highway Honey was used to advertise Kentucky Road Super, with bad references to the Kentucky Highway Honey, we can see lawyers getting involved. Nobody wants that.
1. Noise is the primary reason for rejection, though composition is also not good. Additionally you would have needed to submit a product release because of the label in the bottle.
2. Underexposed, blown highlight, not well composed
3.noise and chromatic aberration.
