Always Carry a Camera (Part 2)

posted on 3rd of september, 2014

Some time ago I wrote a blog (here) about always carrying a camera with you, just so you don't miss any great photo opportunities .

Everything I said then is true today. Maybe more so. There are over 25,000,000 stock images on Dreamstime as I write this. That staggering number could easily deflate any contributor from shooting or uploading anything new. However, I'm convinced that for those who are prepared, and who carry a camera with them always, there are an abundance, even an infinite variety of great stock shots that can be captured that are unique and that sell.

I always carry either a Canon S110 or a Nikon D5100 with me at all times. They are compact, have full manual control and can capture great quality...

Yes, it's true, not once I had suddenly occasions for a good picture, and every time my little Nikon is with me

Agree with you! What you said is very practical and reasonable!

Creative Light (part 2)

posted on 4th of september, 2014

I just re-read my original article about creative light (here). Given that there are over 25,000,000 stock images here at Dreamstime as I write this, using creative light has never been more important.

Creative light in your photos helps your images stand out in a crowd of similar photos. More importantly, taking photos using creative light is waaaay more fun than just shooting everything on a isolated white background!

Not sure how...

Close to 4000 Images Online!

posted on 10th of september, 2014

After 8 years on Dreamstime (I joined August 2006), I am close to having 4000 images online. I have about 70 uploaded and waiting for review and plan on uploading another 40-50 before the month is over. My goal is to reach 4000 before the end of September. Wish me luck.

In the meantime, here are some of my more recent uploads that are fresh and new (and waiting to be downloaded!)





Good luck to the rest of you!

This is the first blog I've read on Dreamstime and I can't help but give my opinion on Robd444's comment. It's critical people like this that have put me off uploading any pictures so far and saying..."My goal is in having a handful of images that photographers call great! Btw, enhancing color or forcing contrast to make a photo look "better" is amateur."...sounds like petty jealousy. These pictures are fantastic and the colours only add to their beauty. I really am an amateur but this has inspired me to upload my pics no matter what people goes... :)
