What if I took the pictures before becoming a F1 student status, and am not receiving royalty for them? What about the scenario where I took pictures while in the US?
This is a tricky issue.
First you ask about receiving royalty ... then you say you're not receiving royalty.
I would say that if you are paid into your foreign bank account and that the sales are infrequent ... you're probably OK.
If this is bringing in enough money to pay the rent .. (which, as a photographer myself, I know is difficult) you may have a problem.
