My journey to 3000 sales reached today.

posted on 18th of july, 2012
>Wow. It just seems like yesterday when I started at Dreamstime and enter the world of microstock photography. I remember vividly saying to myself, it's worth a shot (pardon the pun) since I already enjoy taking photos anyway. What can a lose? Almost 5 years later, I finally reached 3000 sales. To many, this may not be such a significant milestone since it took almost 5 years to achieve. But considering my portfolio size is only 252 photos, I'm very proud of my achievement.

I remember the time when reaching my first $100 payment seemed like forever. Almost 6 months to be exact. But I told myself then that I would try to learn as much as possible to achieve sales even with a small portfolio since I knew I would never have enough time in my hectic life to develop a large portfolio like others....

Canon EOS M - Who's getting one?

posted on 23rd of july, 2012
It's finally announced and looks very promising. I've been shooting a digital Rebel XT for awhile and always thought to upgrade to a 5D but since my son's arrival, I've been looking for a camera at is smaller but would still deliver the same quality as full fledged dSLRs. My Sony NEX3 doing give the same level of quality I wanted. This newly announced EOS M seems like the answer. Anyone else thinking about getting this?

Below is the new commercial.

Thanks for the info Brad. After looking more into the OM-D, definitely a camera worth considering. It comes down to whether I would select it as my main camera to reduce size of package since I would need to switch into a new system or pick EOS-M as an adjunct to my current Canon system but sacrificing a lot of the features of a dSLR. If I didn't already have a Canon system, without a doubt I would probably pick the OM-D. I'll have to see. Thanks again.

Me, me, me! I love how it looks and it would fit so well in a travelling bag, instead of my bulky body camera + lens. I just wish I'll have the money to buy it :D

I pretty much shoot with just the 25mm f/1.4 and 45mm f/1.8 (50mm and 90mm equivalents). I also have a 14mm prime that is so tiny I bring it with me, but it doesn't get nearly as much use as the others.
