  • Make the Invisible Visible

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of May, 2008

    Short of shooting roofs flying off buildings and trees ripped from the ground in a hurricane, how can you photograph wind? And why would you? As wind increases to hurricane force, the wise take shelter and let the guys in the working TV and press shoot the storm. (They presumably... More
  • 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

  • You are solely responsible for your success!

    by Photozlaja | 25th of March, 2015

    If you already have an approved portfolio with photographs that means that you are qualified and that the quality of your photos are satisfying. Is it worth it to just sit and wait for it to happen all by itself? I do not think so.   Always and at every step you make... More

  • Video frame rate

    by Oliena | 8th of January, 2015

    Frame rate – is often the reason of strobe motion on air of small local television companies.   At the same time, frame rate is wonderful option to play with, when you need more accurate slow motion (in wedding footage, for example). Most of video editing software... More
  • First Accepted Photo!

    by Rayzer1 | 21st of October, 2014

    My first blog here (though I've got, like, five elsewhere!) but I just want to chronicle my experience on Dreamstime. Starting out hopeful, although I did send a question off to admin to ask if I have to do my own marketing and the answer was yes. So, maybe I'll put these... More
  • The ART of Motion

    by Eric1513 | 26th of September, 2014

    I love living an active life! Mountaineering, running, mountain biking and everyday life are interesting to me. The enjoyment comes from living and doing rather than just sitting back and watching. I try to convey the ART of Motion in many of my photographs. Some... More

    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

  • New camera - new problems

    by Shmeljov | 12th of September, 2012

    This shoot is made with Nikon D80, because my Sony was broken. D80 is quite an obsolete camera, so it's not easy to make sharp images in motion. Unfortunately about 95% of all pictures can not be used in commerce. Olga's boyfriend came to the... More
  • Motion blur on subject

    by Alvera | 31st of August, 2012

    I made some photos at a drifting race. First one was approved today. I want to share my technique. First of all, you will need a shutter speed of about 1/8 - 1/20 sec. This is beyond my anti-shake abilities with a 450 mm lens so I use a tripod. Also, I pre-focused on the... More
  • Can photography change us?

    by Acosmin | 15th of August, 2012
