  • Haunting and haunted locations for photography

    by Tangie | 30th of October, 2013

    We're getting closer to that spooky night of the year when they say the dead walk the earth and all sort of supernatural, spine-chilling phenomena occur. Most of you will probably grab their cameras. Experienced photostockers will always try to shoot the best of the worst... More
  • Visual cooking

    by Tangie | 15th of May, 2009

    Evolving from means of sustenance to means of indulgence, food is today considered an art committed to both feed the body and please the eye. Quality food, cuisine and gourmet are recurrent words in our vocabulary while food-related images still have a wide market areal to... More
  • The Photographer’s Creative Process

    by Gracelife | 2nd of September, 2015

      For many photographers, the hardest part of a photographic project is settling on an idea. Fine art photography isn't so much about snapping as many photos as you can in the hope that you get the perfect shot. Instead, a good project takes lots of time, thought and... More

  • The First Steps Were a Success

    by Eezeedesign | 20th of August, 2015

    My first few months on here have been a success. I am still not doing this at the speed I would like. Sadly this is just a hobby for me right now. I currently work two full time jobs and photography has been a way to relax. I have several photos pending that I hope are approved!... More

  • Reflections in a short break

    by Zharate | 18th of August, 2015

    Hi everyone¡¡¡ Most of my work Microstock performed from the free sessions. I like to experiment and turn those photographs that usually end up in a corner of any hard drive. I have the formation of surveyor and worked for more than 15 years in civil works ... how... More
  • How to produce quality stock images.

    by Mirzamlk | 18th of August, 2015

    My journey in the field of stock photography started in the month of May- June 2015. It was summer vacation in my country, me and my kids were tired of shooting remote images and landscapes, a friend of mine told me about stock photography and its standards. The high quality... More

  • Rodeos, and editorial licenses

    by Frozenmountainphotography | 14th of August, 2015

    I've recently submitted photos I had taken whilst at a rodeo in Grace Idaho, and this is a place where it would be impossible to acquire a model release for all people in most photos. So I am very happy about using the editorial license to put my photos up for sale on Dreamstime.... More
  • 10+1 Flowers Everyone Should Recognize

    by Klodvig | 14th of August, 2015

    "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" - Juliet in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. What the great bard wrote is probably true, but in the world of stock photography, a customer looking for a photo of a rose probably wouldn’t be very satisfied if all... More
  • SETTING GOALS AND ACHIEVING THEM

    by Debratos | 7th of August, 2015

    It's important, even in your older years, to set goals and to work to achieve them. It may seems frivolous, (not having any purpose or value) to say that you want to sell 100 photos in your first year at Dreamstime or that you want to have your photo chosen for an assignment... More
  • My Story, My Experiences Of One Year

    by Rajansingh | 3rd of August, 2015

    Before I start my story I want to tell my fellow photographers that I am not good in English. Hope you all will forgive me for that. I joined DT on 7/12/2014. Those days I knew nothing about photography and still I am learning, and this is a never ending process. One keeps... More
  • No Flowers!

    by Photographycornwall | 3rd of August, 2015

    If there's one subject that we're told not to photograph for stock photography, it's flowers. And yet many of us take great joy in practicing our art and technique on a subject that does not require a model or property release. Moreover, flowers are ubiquitous: they are everywhere.... More
  • Portfolio

    by Pamjreynolds | 3rd of August, 2015

    Hi folks, This is just a quick post to thank the Dreamtimers who have started to follow my portfolio, it really is very much appreciated. When I look around other artist’s portfolios I very quickly realise how much I have to learn, but I’m loving every minute of... More
  • Making Art When Everything's Been Done Before

    by Gracelife | 23rd of July, 2015

        I sometimes think that the photographers who lived 200 years ago had it easy. Photography as an art form was completely uncharted territory, so every image these pioneers created was something new and wonderful. Today, nearly everyone has a camera, whether it’... More
  • Playing with isolation

    by Benliammelville | 23rd of July, 2015

    I just had my first taste of isolated photography, and I wanted to share just how easy it can be to try it out, even well before you attempt to produce any high quality shots. I used very few simple tools I literally had in my backpack. 1. An old canon powershot 120, a... More
  • More Images Accepted

    by Pamjreynolds | 23rd of July, 2015

    Hello Just a quickie to say that I've had a few more images accepted onto Dreamstime, so well onto my target of 100 online. I know rejections are a pain, but without them we could miss out on doing our very best work. I do appreciated that the whole aspect of photography... More
