    by Ellenboughn | 20th of April, 2007

    June is just around the corner and all over the world, brides are lining up for their big day, panic setting in. Some Dreamstime photographers are accomplished wedding shooters. Sooner or later, though, most of you will be asked to take photos for someone's event.... More

    by Ellenboughn | 17th of April, 2007

    I've been churning out blogs at a furious pace. Now it's your turn. Here are a few of my favorite images from the Dreamstime collection. I'll tell you why I responded to them and then I hope you'll suggest subjects you would like to see in future blogs. Post suggestions... More
  • Sexy!

    by Ellenboughn | 13th of April, 2007

    Youth and sex have forever been used to promote and sell products and services. And sexy pixs are especially important to the calendar sector that isn't dominated by kittens (the more feline type) and gardens. I'm not an expert on what is sexy; that is gender specific... More
  • Keywords that Work (Part III)

    by Ellenboughn | 4th of April, 2007

    Keywording is both a science and an art. No matter what you call it, it can be the best cure for insomnia available outside of a bottle of sleeping pills. But without relevant keywords, images will be lost in remote territories and never be found.... More
  • Doctor in the House

    by Ellenboughn | 27th of March, 2007

    With an explosion of medical advertising and health care issues often in the news in print and on the web, there is an increased demand for images of medical professionals. To produce images of doctors and nurses, it's not necessary to have access to a hospital. It'... More

  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank... More
  • 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... 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... 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.... 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... 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... More
  • Never give up

    by Daltonhoverlin | 31st of March, 2015

    A good reason to never give up your dream is because dreams define your goals in life, and will define you as uniquely as a fingerprint.   See Article
  • Photography is memories

    by Daltonhoverlin | 31st of March, 2015

    I believe that photographs are like memories, captured for those to remember special moments, and to share memories with others. Not only does photography share where we were but it also shows who we are on the inside.    See Article
