  • 2012 in review

    by Tangie | 31st of December, 2012

    The year which is about to end has been full of events: from the Olympic games to the US presidential elections, from riots and strikes to much debated bailouts, from record artwork sale to Felix Baumgartner's fearless supersonic jump, from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee to... More
  • The ILCE-A7R

    by Maddrew | 8th of November, 2014

            My first Sony mirrorless was the NEX-3. When Sony first released their NEX system, it had a total of just three lenses. A pancake 16mm F2.8, a standard zoom 18-55mm F3.5-F5.6 and a do-all zoom 18-200mm. I was using the Sony DSLR-A550 at the time, which... More
  • Superfast DT!

    by Cheese365 | 23rd of January, 2014

    We all have to wait patiently for our images to be reviewed. I had just finished uploading and submitting my images for admin approval (or rejection) when I noticed the images had been given approximately 17 hours before reviewing. Great, excellent, I've never had such... More
  • What is a T-Stop

    by Bradcalkins | 22nd of November, 2013

    If you been shooting images for any amount of time you are certainly familiar with f-stops and apertures. The f-stop is a ratio between the focal length of a lens and the size of the physical aperture opening in the lens. The longer the lens (telephoto) the larger the physical... More
  • Fuji X100s - the ultimate walkabout stock camera?

    by Alistaircotton | 12th of November, 2013

    I've been a fan of Fuji's higher-end cameras ever since I dumped a Nikon D70 for an end-of-line S3 Pro. Fuji's S3 Pro was based on an even older end-of-line Nikon film body and had some quirks that made it almost impossible to shoot in raw. Well, that's not true - the... More
  • how many review provide sales

    by CanerBozlaker | 23rd of September, 2013

    Hi, I am new or rookie but I have portfolio in DT :) I wonder, my photos reviewing again and again but not sale. What's missing? What do you thinking and suggesting. May be this is normal situation or normal way to go professional, but I wanna incentive... More
  • Review of What Sells in My Portfolio

    by Sml | 27th of August, 2013

    After reviewing my dreamstime portfolio, I have been very pleased with my progress since October of 2012. I now have 42 sales and only 7 dollars away from my first $100.00 dollars. Yes! I have uploaded a variety of 180 images ranging from birds, landscape, cars, flowers,... More
  • Noise Reduction Tools: A Review

    by Robinstockphotos | 10th of June, 2013

    As a photographer, you always get to encounter situations that are worth capturing but the light is extremely unfavorable. If you have a tripod, you are good to go. But that doesn't always help. Recently while trying to make an HDR of a church interior, I wasn't allowed to... More

  • Rambling Review: Phone, P&S or DSLR

    by Chanevy | 8th of April, 2013

    I read a lot of reviews before I buy equipment and they are somewhat useful, but sometimes they seem out of touch with the reality of stock photography. Noise free ISO up to 1million? Ummmm, maybe for Facebook posts but not so much if you are a pixel peeping photo enthusiast.... More
  • 2 Downloads each

    by Amdizdarevic | 19th of March, 2013

    I think it’s interesting how 4 of my images have 2 downloads each and those are the only downloads that I have. Finally had some time to submit additional 44 photos that are currently in-review, so I am hoping that I will be over the 50 this week. Images that have... More
  • Carl Zeiss lenses review

    by Xalanx | 29th of September, 2012

    I was asked by the largest photo gear shop in Romania to do a review of several Carl Zeiss lenses. I accepted and the results is in the link below. Feel free to use Google translate, as the article is in Romanian language. http://www.f64.ro/blog/2012/09/18/zeiss-planar-... More
  • Product review

    by Robseguin | 31st of August, 2012

    I recently picked up a light tent for small product photography and wanted to share my initial tests. The one I purchased was the Dynaphos DPL-005L 24x24 LightCube. It packs really small and comes with 4 different backdrops (Black, White, Red and Blue). Please... More
  • Such a long reviewing time!

    by Acosmin | 21st of August, 2012

    For some time now it seems that the ETR until my submissions are reviewed keeps growing day by day. The latest images had an ETR of 105 hours yesterday and now are at 115 hours. If the website is so overwhelmed with submissions they should consider hiring some new staff... More
  • Now reviews anymore?

    by Cristalloid | 28th of July, 2012

    If I go to my pending files list, in the ETR-row I only can read N/A... that is since the last 2 or 3 days... is there any problem with the website? See Article
  • Review: 70-200 4L USM

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.... More
  • New lens and hopefully some more pictures

    by Llareggub | 16th of May, 2012

    I have been very quiet on the photography front for a few monhs, winter was brutal and cold and planting season is always very busy! However I have taken some of my macrostock earnings and invested in a couple of new lenses, the Tamron 17-50mm f.8 and the Sigma 50mm f2.8... More
