  • Improve at photoshop.

    by Fra73 | 22nd of February, 2011

    by Mvogel | 20th of February, 2011

    It has been a year since I started with DT. In that time I have achieved modest gains, 133 images online and $120 in revenue. The real pay off, however, is in the lessons that I have learned over the year. I learned so much about taking a decent stock photo, about editing,... More

    by Nazar1980 | 31st of January, 2011

    It took me 8-9 months to get 100 images online. As many other beginners, at the onset I thought it would be an easy hobby with some financial inflow. It isn't :-). I am very grateful to DT for keeping up the competition spirit in me. I have set (a very vague) target and... More

    by Swelsh1 | 28th of October, 2010

    I recently went to a custom car and rockabilly event. I took my camera to try and get a few photos to upload here as I thought it would be a great opportunity even if they are to be sold as editorial. I tried uploading a few but only got one approved after resubmitting,... More

    I've found a new reason for living and that's from having the goal to have success in stock photography. I needed another goal in my life and this is it. I haven't done it very long but I'm learning more everyday. I took a photography class a few years ago but I don't remember... More
