The Last Minute

Todays picutre of the day come from a set of images that has done rather well for me over the years.  One varient from this set was actually my second ever stock sale.

I’ve posted this image today for two reasons – firstly because I was uploading details of the aforementioned second sale (, and secondly a number of people who are reading this blog are reading it to gain hints and tips on photography in general and stock photography specifically.  So here is a tip for budding stock photographers.  The clock I was photographing has a prominent name on it.  I’ve tried to hide name of the manufaturer in this shot by letting it be out of focus.  The aim is to make the photo more generic and thus more marketable.  In the other photo the name is hidden behind the hands of the clock.
