  • The Eyes Have It

    by Ellenboughn | 26th of March, 2008

    Facial expressions and body language can either make or break a photo. Again and again we see images that would be successful if only there was emotion in the image instead of a subject with a bored look or a blank stare. How can you get your models more engaged with your... More
  • The Psychology of Color: How to Use Images to Invoke Emotions

    by Nicoleckohler | 1st of July, 2014

    What if a single Dreamstime image could sell your content for you? Unfortunately, reality isn't that simple. However, if you're creating a website that relies on photography to support your calls to action, it may be helpful to know which colors are most supportive... More
  • Sisterhood

    by Mani33 | 11th of February, 2014

    On my recent adventure in the Philippines, I was lucky to meet two young sisters who have a big talent posing behind the lens! They were inspiring for me to get into DT assignment after a long period of not participating. They made the safety concept with perfection,... More
  • "When Bad Dogs Go Good"

    by Cmoulton | 25th of March, 2013

    This is a milestone blog for me and I am silly, giddy, ridiculous happy. You'd think I won a gigantic lottery jackpot and my own private island, and figured how to manifest world peace, I'm so pleased with myself. You see, after a little more than three years, my... More
  • Difficulties with first stock photos

    by Photoalenka | 23rd of January, 2013

    Hello! I'm now 25 years old and half of my life (since 12) I'm with camera in hands. The process of seeing the picture and finally taking it is something, that can't be divided from my life. But... for all these many years I was thinking of beauty or value of the moment... More
  • Can photography change us?

    by Acosmin | 15th of August, 2012

    Thinking about photography made me realize the implications of this strong word. Apart from pictures or photos, photography has a greater and deeper meaning, it has that little extra which sometimes can make you shed a tear or laugh as loud as you can, smile, feel compassion... More

  • Thoughts

    by Taylorgracephotography | 4th of May, 2011

    I'm a mother, monster-chaser, superhero, wife, cook, artist, and photographer just to name a few. Everyday things/issues have the potential to spell disaster and ruin a sunshiney day. We have but to appreciate the things around us that we have no control over to really see... More
  • The Magic of Monotone Photos

    by Eric1513 | 14th of March, 2011

  • Photography and the Color Red

    by Eric1513 | 15th of November, 2010

  • Best Model

    by Dmccale | 25th of March, 2010

  • The Pondering Primate

    by Ihsankhairir | 1st of March, 2010

  • Stock or street Photography ?

    by Davulcu | 11th of December, 2009

    What I like most, is to walk on the streets of little villages or in desolated places and find who we rarely meet in our daily life. This is really very exciting. To talk to them and understand what these people do and how they live and capturing their photos makes... More
