As someone who is constantly looking for ways to monetize my photography skills, I´ve found out there are plenty of different ways of earning income with photos, from selling them to creating photography blogs. Some I´ve had success more than others.
A while ago, I´ve come across an app called microwork. At its core, it´s just a typical microtask app, you work on whatever available task and get paid for it. Except this one revolves taking photos and you get paid in Crypto instead of Fiat currency.
The instructions are simple, first you open the app with your GPS on and choose a task. Don´t worry if don´t find any that interests you, they are always updating new task. There is a lot variety, some involve taking photos of objects like street signs or products, while other ask you to take a photo of your outfit, facial expressions etc.
Please note, that all the images will be used for marketing or machine training purposes, so my advice would be don´t work on a task if it makes you feel uncomfortable with the use of your image or take photos without someone´s permission.
That being said I´m gonna give an example of how a task works. For example here is one related to the subject of animals
So I´m gonna choose the sparrow one. When I open it up it shows me the instructions, how much I will get paid, how many times I can do this task, as well as a couple of example photos to get an idea what they are looking for. Following instructions is important since it increases your chances of the photo getting accepted.
Now, the only way to take photos is to use to do so right inside the app, you can´t use your own phone app, unfortunately.
The design is pretty simple, you have flash, front and back camera buttons, and focus. However I do have one criticism, is that it's very limited with its options, as my preference is adjusting the camera's settings like aperture and iso, giving me less control over how the photo will turn out. And since photo quality is great factor in getting your images accepted, this can be a problem.
After taking you will need to upload the photo by tapping on the arrow and selecting it. Wait for it to finish loading before turning off the app.
You can also then use the Statistic tab to check on your task progress and earnings. Now sometimes your photos might get rejected, but don´t worry. You redo the task again by tapping on the rejected photo. They will tell you the reasons why it got rejected and open the photo app.
As for the minimum withdraw it´s 1.00$, however there is a fee, so it´s better to wait for earn more before cashing in your earnings. Here is my payment proof
Before you claim your earnings make sure you have an Ether wallet, like metamask or coinbase for example.
Realistically speaking, do not count on this app making you rich, as I´ve found someone claiming they earned 50$ on one go, but I´m skeptical about it. This pretty much depends on how active you are and how many your photos get accepted. But it´s still another form of earning some income, so it doesn´t hurt to check it out.
