  • Material evolution

    by Shmeljov | 20th of October, 2012

    As I've already many times said, I don't think about digital images as a final product. Any digital photo which is in my computer is considered to be as a raw material, no matter how complex was it's post manipulation. Therefore I seldom return to the final material and either... More

    Once in the evening I was at home. And in a window casually was issued from the sun at sunset. It softly and beautifully laid down on clouds. Similar to the animated film! Unless such it was possible not to photograph? See Article

  • Such a long reviewing time!

    by Acosmin | 21st of August, 2012

    For some time now it seems that the ETR until my submissions are reviewed keeps growing day by day. The latest images had an ETR of 105 hours yesterday and now are at 115 hours. If the website is so overwhelmed with submissions they should consider hiring some new staff to... More

  • Review: 70-200 4L USM

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.... More

    by Retina2020 | 18th of July, 2012

    Wow. It just seems like yesterday when I started at Dreamstime and enter the world of microstock photography. I remember vividly saying to myself, it's worth a shot (pardon the pun) since I already enjoy taking photos anyway. What can a lose? Almost 5 years later, I finally... More

  • setting goals

    by Phoenixci | 8th of July, 2012

    Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every... More
