  • 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

    I'm in San Francisco this week, staying near Union Square. There is a photographer on every corner snapping every which way. So how do to create images of a beautiful and much photographed city that will stand out from the competition?... More
  • Erin Go Bragh!

    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of February, 2007

    Erin Go Bragh translates to "Ireland Forever" and in the US where everyone claims to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day, it is often heard.
    In parts of the world, March 17th is all about beer. Specifically,... More
  • 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
  • Introduction

    by Ellenboughn | 16th of February, 2007

    Dreamstime has asked me to write a blog to share my knowledge of the stock photo business. First a bit about me. Before I found myself in the business of editing, marketing and producing images, I was a schoolteacher. Thus the art above. I hope to both teach and learn in... More
  • Why Stock Photography is Not a Hobby

    by Photographycornwall | 31st of May, 2016

    Okay, so it's been a while since my last post and, if you recall, my last DT blog was fairly negative in calling out people who do not pay for using stock images. That I'm afraid is a perennial problem, which isn't likely to go away any time soon. And anyway,... More

    by Nitronosx | 31st of May, 2016

    Eat a good deal: If all the things else falls flat, just maintain taking in. You wouldn't Imagine how quite a few situations you hear persons grumble about currently being thin or perhaps a tough-gainer. Nitronos X Then get rid of that title when they begin to consume... More
  • HOW A DISAPPOINTMENT CAN TURN INTO JOY AND HAPPINESS!

    by Cathconvey | 31st of May, 2016

    What a pity! That was my first thought when I saw a small boy’s back appeared right in front of my camera. I was taking pictures of a musical band performing in a city park, and the show was really hot! A beautiful woman dancing in latino-style, musicians plaing drums,... More

  • Unknown form of known object

    by Sashalend | 30th of May, 2016

    Some things (in this case - pineapple) may be presented in different shape than one we expect of them to be. For example, rather rectangular pineapples may seem wierd for someone. But being not like others doesn't always mean being worse. And more than that there can be... More
  • Happy!

    by Korat_cn | 30th of May, 2016

        What a surprise to receive a DT email about the new assignment with my ballerinas!!! I'm proud to be the testimonial of the new assignment: usual people in unusual situations. This image was created for another assignment, and it's exclusive on DT. Well, may the... More

    by Redjono | 29th of May, 2016

    Hi I have been using DT for over 4 years now, but still haven't been able to request a payment as i have never got over the $100 mark (I have invested some back into keymasters), though I have had 40 sales out of 530 uploads. Starting to think i need to change style / subject... More
