  • Wild Models

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

    Yesterday I found myself on a long pier stretching far out into the Atlantic Ocean. An aggressive group of large pelicans were hanging around the end of the pier to snatch leftover fresh bait. These birds... More
  • A Kick in the Creative Pants

    by Ellenboughn | 2nd of March, 2007

    The most important advice I have to offer after my decades in the stock photo business about what images to make is listen to yourself. You know more than anyone about why you want to create imagery. Build on those thoughts first. Then see how to make the images more salable.... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part II)

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of February, 2007

    Before you arrive in a new location, do research. Looking at map is not enough. Nor are guidebooks necessary the only printed form of information at your fingertips. Get a compass so that you will be able to anticipate how the light will be at different times in the day in... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part 1)

    by Ellenboughn | 26th of February, 2007

  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one. Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top gives a clue... More
  • A Good Stock Image is an Incomplete One...

    by Ellenboughn | 17th of February, 2007

    A pioneer in the stock business once said, "A good stock photo is an incomplete photo". That doesn't make sense, does it? Shouldn't a great stock photo simply be a great photo? Sometimes, yes. But think about one of the reasons stock photos sell and the unfinished... More
  • A trip to the bookstore (Part 1)

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of February, 2007

    We all get "stuck" in a void of inspiration sometimes. I find that my best ideas often come out of the blue when I'm NOT consciencously trying to think of something creative. When that kind brain freeze sets in, try just taking a break from even thinking about your own work.... More

  • with a mobile phone?

    by Physi28 | 8th of February, 2016

    by Bartdierickx | 8th of February, 2016

    Dear Dreamstime contributors and designers, It's been a while since I wrote a blog. Everything in my life crumbled apart piece by piece during 2015: April 2015 I dislocated and broke both of my shoulder simultaneous during powerlifting (one of my passions). This meant... More
