My first real publication

I got a copy of my first real published photographic work today, so I feel like shouting it from the roof tops Nothing special really, but it is quite a confidence boost for me. A Spanish based company "Difusion publications" used one of my images in their latest range of educational books "Aula 5", and I got my name in the credits
I'm also waiting on a copy of the Australia based magazine "Outdoor Living" by Queensland Homes, as they are also using some of my photo's in their latest publication

I know quite a few of you will have already gone way past this stage in your photography careers, but I'm on a high at the moment

Oooooh yeah.
It seems some of my macro water shots have created quite a bit of interest over the past few months, so I'm hoping to build on that. I've had quite a few published on the web and in website templates etc, but these are the first "printed" images I've had published on a large scale.

And a BIG Congratulations to you. You do some very nice work; and it is quite a coup to see it in print. Savor the moment.

Nice one Chris, you deserve some recognition.

I've always enjoyed your work, glad there's others out there with the same excellent taste.

Re: My first real publication

Thank you all
The last 6 months has been a learning process on the type of images wanted by publishers etc, and most of it has come as a surprise. Images I thought were of no real use, have been the most popular. Macro stuff that I have done for my own enjoyment, has turned out to be my best asset. The image printed in Aula is of a simple droplet of rain on the tip of a blade of grass. But when added to the theme of the section of the book, it tells a story. It speaks of "the price of water, how people don't value it, and how they could consume much less".
Funnily enough, the "Outdoor Living" article is called "water wise" and is using the same image, plus one other from that series. So I'm thinking that both publishers have thought the same thing when viewing that image (I've attached it to this post).
I've now been approached by another 8 publishers over different images I have, so this may be a good starting point for me. All have been regarding Macro shots of things from phone key pads to PC parts, so this seems to be the way to go.

Shame about the BG posterisation (obviously from getting down to 100k) so we can't see it at its best, but an impressive shot nonetheless.
