Dreamstime coffee lounge
posted by tangie - 22nd of august, 2007

posted by ellenboughn - 10th of august, 2007

Masters of Light
posted by ellenboughn - 30th of july, 2007
Lots of blog talk lately about what differentiates a pro from an amateur. If an image has what it takes, I don’t care who took it. Could be a top photographer or my Aunt Nellie: it’s a professional image. But on the over all career... More...
Alice in summer
posted by tangie - 25th of july, 2007

First days in Photoland
posted by tangie - 12th of july, 2007

Alice in Photoland
posted by tangie - 7th of july, 2007
I have recently discovered a new playground. Roaming through life, I have fallen in a magic rabbit's hole. Instead of falling right to the bottom, curiously enough I started floating swiftly. Then the images came pouring around me.... More...
Snap! Not! Vacation Photos
posted by ellenboughn - 2nd of july, 2007
Trying to pack too many photos into too little time can result in photos of everything but few, if any, terrific shots. To document your vacation as well as taking some great shots for Dreamstime, you need to plan ahead. It's not just... More...
Inside Out
posted by ellenboughn - 27th of june, 2007

All the Pretty Faces
posted by ellenboughn - 19th of june, 2007
