2) It is getting much more difficult for newcomers to get into the top tier of microstocks and start earning.

3) Glamorous or unnatural pictures are falling out of fashion; what clients need is sincerity, real emotions, and everything natural.

5) Fresh ideas and a sense of humor really matter.

Enjoy some views of this wonderful city!
