    by Hanbaoluan | 10th of March, 2013

    by Ozmedia | 7th of March, 2013

  • Unfinished Tales - Joel Meyerowitz

    by Shadow69 | 1st of March, 2013

    Photography is a response that has to do with the momentary recognition of things. Suddenly you're alive. A minute later there was nothing there. I just watched it evaporate. You look one moment and there's everything, next moment it's gone. Photography is very philosophical.... More

  • Butterfly Photography

    by Robinstockphotos | 19th of February, 2013

    The very mention of butterfly photography creates an image of vivid attractive subjects fluttering in a dream garden. That happens if you are a buyer or end user of butterfly photos. What if you are a contributor? You begin to imagine heat, sitting in the sun, uncomfortable,... More

  • To upload flowers or not to?

    by Robinstockphotos | 21st of January, 2013

    But Dreamstime has got enough flowers to fill up the Mariana trench and drown the Everest. I still don't know what would be a good strategy here. Of course I have to upload flower photos and I will. But what sells and what doesn't? After thinking about it all I decided... More
