    by Asakalaskas | 29th of July, 2011

  • Origin Stories

    by Sortapundit | 13th of April, 2011

    Until a few months ago I didn't know (or care) much about photography at all. I'd heard terms such as aperture, white balance, depth of field and what not, but had little more than a vague understanding of what they meant. Shooting holiday snaps with a point and shoot,... More

    by Gheburaseye | 16th of June, 2010

    I'd like to be in autumn or winter to taste the cold of those seasons! Summer it's too hot for sleeping good and, with few hours slept every night, also my will to create is smaller (not everyday, fortunately). I started to uploads EPS file, some of them are already accepted... More

  • Christmas came early!

    by Teekaygee | 12th of December, 2008

    I must confess I am somewhat addicted to checking my stats here to see if I've made any sales. Every sale brings a little excitement (yes even if it is just a subscription), and an ongoing appreciation to Dreamstime for making it possible. So in keeping with my little... More
  • Kids and video games addictions

    by Litifeta | 12th of October, 2008

  • A new addiction

    by Shadow69 | 11th of September, 2007

    After 3 years of having to accept the sluggish performance of my aging machine, I took the plunge and ordered a brand new computer. And against my gut instincts I even went for Vista (usually not a good idea to get such a young OS as the bugs and kinks haven't all been ironed... More
