    by Yelo34 | 25th of March, 2013

    I think, we will agree that the most important quality in a photographer is the ability to see interesting subjects. I would like to recommend a book named: "Photography and the Art of Seeing" by Freeman Patterson. I got it when I entered the local library in a day I was... More

  • Diversity at last...

    by Llareggub | 22nd of March, 2011

  • Stretching your creativity.

    by Davidwatmough | 19th of September, 2010

    Soon after joining Dreamstime I noticed that very often concept images do well. So when the weather isn't favorable for trips into the countryside I sit and try to create an image with small props lying around the house and office. Images related to finding employment seem... More

  • See it, Shoot it, Move On

    by Krey | 17th of April, 2010

    The other day I decided to try an exercise, (not a physical one, though I desperately need that too) but rather an exercise in photography. I am one of those creative people who cannot just do. I must hem and haw and ponder and over-think and re-think, and over-analyze... More

  • Amsterdam

    by Motadacruz | 27th of November, 2008

    Most tourist don't come to Amsterdam for the sightseeings. It bothers me sometimes that tourist come here for things that are illegal where they live. I think Amsterdam has so much more to offer and there is so much to explore here. Unfortunately most tourist don't even... More

    by Marekuliasz | 23rd of September, 2008

    I needed 9 months to reach my first payment from Dreamstime. The $100 line was crossed by this picture of sunflower seeds on a tablespoon. About $10 in this amount came from referrals. Dreamstime has provided so far 8.2% of my income from microstock and it is my third... More
  • pleasant surprises

    by Digitalreflections | 11th of July, 2008

  • Seeing sense

    by Papuga2006 | 4th of March, 2008

    Most obvious sense of all is seeing, it makes us who we are illustrators, photographers, designers. Our imagination is also very important to our work. All of that our creations are really matching my idea, but I found like to show some photos and illustrations that really... More

    by Digitalreflections | 21st of December, 2007
