    by Ellenboughn | 25th of November, 2008

    Dreamstime success depends on many factors beyond an exciting and diverse portfolio. Building a reputation for a particular style or special subject niche creates a ‘brand’. As designers become familiar with your work, they will seek out your images by searching first... More

  • The simplicity of famous brands

    by Giannelliwilliam | 20th of November, 2010

    One of the things that has always struck me about the famous brands is their extraordinary simplicity. They are never complex, not too much sophistication and I think this is one of their secrets of success. It's enough a prancing horse to make a fast car? Certainly... More

  • Experimenting with food photos

    by Gmargittai | 21st of October, 2009

    Food photography as Amitai says, is definitely not an easy field. There is so much demand and money in it that the pros perfected it to the maximum. When I tried it before, the results were disastrous and I thought I will never be able to come close to a picture that could... More

    Most of us in the DT community will be hit one way or another because of the economy. But it does not have to be that way. Read this quote: "In a study of U.S. recessions, McGraw-Hill Research analyzed 600 companies from 1980-1985. The results showed that business-to-business... More
