  • Build Your Brand

    by Ellenboughn | 25th of November, 2008

    Dreamstime success depends on many factors beyond an exciting and diverse portfolio. Building a reputation for a particular style or special subject niche creates a ‘brand’. As designers become familiar with your work, they will seek out your images by searching first... More
  • Personal Best

    by Ellenboughn | 7th of October, 2008

    Individual, recreational sports offer distraction from day to day stress and provide unlimited shooting opportunities. Engaging images of healthy activities and individuals competing with themselves to improve their skills and prowess are effective for a wide range of users... More
  • Is Your Photography Art?

    by Ellenboughn | 21st of May, 2008

    There is a continuing dust up between those who claim that commercial photography isn’t art and that the photos in museums and galleries shouldn’t be sullied by appearing in promotions or ads. Not withstanding the fact that most photographers that fall into the ‘collectible... More
  • Spectator Sports

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of April, 2008

    As a photographer you need to be the most focused of all spectators at sporting events not only to make the best images but to keep from getting into the action yourself. To see what happens when a photographer forgets where he is, go to this video before reading on. There... 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
  • Mommy LOOK!

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of June, 2007

    Everybody loves a baby...unless they are screaming in the seat next to you on a cross-country flight. And almost everyone has a baby around the house at one time or another. But beware...babies and children can be like little flowers: way too many images of them to compete... More
  • Doctor in the House

    by Ellenboughn | 27th of March, 2007

    With an explosion of medical advertising and health care issues often in the news in print and on the web, there is an increased demand for images of medical professionals. To produce images of doctors and nurses, it's not necessary to have access to a hospital. It'... More
  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank... More
  • They live in two centuries

    by Cathconvey | 9th of September, 2014

    They live in two centuries - XIX and XXI! It must be exiting! So they have an option - to ride a horse or to drive a car, to be called Mike or Sir Michelle, to go out in jeans and t-shirt or wearing elegant officer's uniform. Sounds interesting? Asking who they are?... More
  • Always Carry a Camera (Part 2)

    by Eric1513 | 3rd of September, 2014

    Some time ago I wrote a blog (here) about always carrying a camera with you, just so you don't miss any great photo opportunities . Everything I said then is true today. Maybe more so. There are over 25,000,000 stock images on Dreamstime as I write this. That staggering... More

  • Olympic sale

    by Afrumgartz | 28th of July, 2014

    That wasn't my best try - the accumulator of my camera turned to be too low to work in cold streets. So in fact it was the one good shot. And so many months after the Games, it was surprisingly sold. See Article
