Shot Notes

This is my most popular stock photo. It has been accepted at five agencies. Putting the same image at different agencies is a common practice as the photographer keeps the copyright to an image whoever sells it. Since taking it in 2006 is has sold 263 times and made $82(£50) so far. In an attempt to replicate its success I have been to a further five firework displays but not yet taken a shot which has matched its popularity. In the end I took the original image turned it blue and resubmitted it to Shutterstock. The blue version has now sold 42 times.

For this blog post I used the Orton Effect on the images to see what would happen.

    It simply radiates and glows on my screen… like orange slices… stunning.
