50 Sales!
posted by tdmartin - 26th of october, 2008
Hit the 50 sale mark this afternoon! It took over a month and a half to reach the 25 mark, and only 23 days to reach the 50 mark! I didn't believe that sales would jump to new highs every month even though I've been slowly uploading... More...

posted by tdmartin - 20th of october, 2008

One picture short story.
posted by yuris - 10th of september, 2008
Some pictures have interesting stories. This one may be interesting for dreamstimers. It was before last Christmas. I heard a sound of a strong blow in my window. Coming out I found a bullfinch lying in front of the window in... More...
Drobo storage
posted by sebcz - 25th of august, 2008
Pat Ballard inspired me to write this. Read her blog entry first. Archiving our work is a constant struggle. I do agree. I myself burn DVD's, have Seagate's Free Agent which is mirroring my main drive. So, theoretically, I have... More...

posted by demonike - 29th of july, 2008
As a daily reviewer I have come across, and recently even more so, tons of illustrations with misplaced or even unassigned Illustration categories. I'd like to share a few words about the significance of those categories and why... More...
Switching between systems.
posted by sebcz - 3rd of july, 2008
I wonder how many of you have switched between DSLR systems. You have all that gear from one manufacturer and you suddenly realize you want to switch. I, personally, haven't had that experience yet, but I was so surprised to learn... More...
Subscriptions? Yes, thank you!
posted by roberto1977 - 29th of may, 2008
Sometimes I happen to read posts on the Message Boards talking about subscriptions and the disappointment of seeing your own image sold at only 0.30$ or 0.36$. I always consider every sale with satisfaction, like a personal success... More...
Too many...insects, and more generally about Macro photography
posted by demonike - 24th of may, 2008
Pursuing the objects in the "macro world" is among the first attempts to enter the amateur photography craft. As soon as people discover the power of magnification the macro-modes the point-and-shoot cameras provide them,... More...
Travelling light with your DSLR
posted by sebcz - 21st of may, 2008
You have your DSLR. You have your lenses. Many of them. What do you do if you really don't want to take them ALL with you? Well, there are things to consider - how much weight you are prepared to carry and what compromises you are... More...
An Editor point of view... Too many flowers!
posted by demonike - 18th of may, 2008
As the image editors (not entirely correct a statement - we're more like... well, reviewers only) review up to a couple of thousand images per day - each - then they most likely see the big picture, when it comes to balancing the various... More...
How I calm down
posted by tangie - 8th of may, 2008
I will not ask you to cook, follow a ten-steps routine, go to an anger management course, call your psychiatrist, drink until you fall under the table and sleep, take some medicines, drink herbal tea, eat chocolate. I have never followed... More...

posted by michellu - 6th of may, 2008

Thanks to one of the DT bloggers, I discovered a Dan Heller's blog. So full of good read! Definitely a must in your blog-roll. To the point. We all know how strict the rules regarding the MRs are when we post our images. A face is... More...
Microstock - the mp3 of photography?
posted by achilles - 3rd of may, 2008
A few years ago, music was available to masses through record producers only - vinyl or CD, the support didn't really matter. The producer started to act as a director, setting trends, creating stars, shaping new generation' addictions... More...
We are `only` amateurs!
posted by achilles - 3rd of may, 2008
There's a frequent discussion that tries to give an answer to what makes a professional, what defines it and what sets it apart from the amateur. It's almost a cliche, like the image that worths as much as x words (substitute... More...
