Muslim's holly month of Ramadan is coming up after some days!
If you search DreamsTime with the word Ramadan you will find lots of images of people, scripts of the holy Quran, calligraphy, food, events, mosques, candles & even cannons!
So what is it all about by the end?!
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic Lunar calendar & it's holly for the Muslims because it's the month when prophet Mohammad started to learn Quran inspired by God. And it's the month that Muslims were ordered to go fasting (for who doesn't know what is fasting... It's no eating, no drinking, no bad manners or insults & no sexual relationship from sun rise to sun set...)
That's why you see some images of the holy Quran script & messages of greeting Ramadan Kareem (Blessed Ramadan)...
Many questions & opinions are going around the fact that there is a Free Section on DT & the fact that photographers are not paid any minimum cents by giving for free...!
I wanted to answer the question made in a recent blog & I found my self over writing! So in order not to give incomplete answer, I'm writing you this...
Q WHY THERE ARE FREE IMAGES?
A Marketing strategy, competing with the other establishments in the same field. When the offer is high & the demand is low, some measures has to be taken to attract clients, commercials, publicity, promotions, merchandising, gifts & free stuff...
Microstocks world is not different from any other industry, it faces the competition with one of these Marketing strategies!
In specific DreamsTime is competing...
As it's the pleasure of every photographer to find his image used online. And as many of you would like to share us this finding here on DT & the social networks like facebook, I came up with an idea that could gather all these images in one place, to be a reference for everyone (Buyers & photographers).
WhereAboutPhotos.com is my early stage project that I was able to finish today...
It contains two sections:
1- Buyer section: Where buyers can find tips & useful information about Microstocks prices & which are the best offers in the market comparing an apple with an apple!
LOL Maen! My brother was shown an image of a glass that was measured at the halfway point and asked "is the glass half full or half empty?" His answer was, "I don't care about all that; I just want to know what's in it!"
