What Photo Buyers Want: The Color Of Technology

By Madeline - 3 min read

Brands and media want colorful technology photos. Upload something sellable today!

Image buyers want colorful, eye-catching visuals. That’s why we’re launching the What Photo Buyers Want: The Color Of challenge, with 4 Missions over 4 weeks (this is the third.) Let’s go!

The third The Color Of Mission is all about technology. Technology is constantly advancing and has become an essential part of our everyday lives. Which colors do you associate with these high-tech gadgets? Buyers want to see you and the people around you using the latest technology. Here are some ideas:

• Brightly colored mobile phones and computer screens
• The colorful glow of a device’s screen at night
• Our ever-growing dependence on technology
• …and all from abstract and creative perspectives!
• Psst: Remember to focus on dominant colors, bright edits and a strong composition. Read these editing tips before you start!

Get in on the trend! Upload your colorful technology shots to EyeEm, add them to Market and use the tag The Color Of Technology by September 29 2016. Not only will you make your profile more attractive to image buyers, but the best photographer will get an EyeEm goodie bag complete with magazines and a t-shirt!

Don’t forget: All identifiable people within your photos will need to give their permission before you can sell them. They can do this by signing model releases. The same goes for artwork, logos and protected designs – you’ll need to get the permission of the owner of this intellectual property. (What are releases? Find out here!)
