How to Shoot Photos People Want to Buy

It's a safe bet to say a majority of photographers would love to get paid for their photos. Well, what photos would people want to buy?

The couple over at Mango Street teamed up with Stefan Kunz for their latest video where they discuss what you can do to take photos that people may want to buy, more specifically, graphic designers, clients, or anyone who would want to use photos for invitations, flyers, and other pieces where they will be incorporating text into the shot. 

They go over six different tips to keep in mind when shooting; some of the tips focus on the actual scene, while others focus on what lens would be best and some of the settings for the shot. 

These are some important tips to consider and not confined to only photographers that shoot for stock. Think of the different ways your photos could be used. Senior and graduation portraits could turn into the invites, engagement photos for save the dates, and product photography for ads, just to name a few. 

Are there any other tips to keep in mind when shooting photos that may be used with text? Leave your answers in the comments below.
