  • Spot on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 8

    by Saniphoto | 6th of September, 2007

    Maybe is not the most original idea in the world, it recall someway something we have seen already. True, similar conceptual ideas abound now in stock. Anyway it's simplicity and the fact it is just a still-life photo (I means, is not a montage) made me think it deserve a... More
  • Spot on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 6

    by Saniphoto | 5th of September, 2007

    This a is wonderful and clever idea! The pepper with a zip (in fact is a successful image) was good indeed. It require surely a good ability in Photoshop, but shows how digital can help to make true good ideas. It should be always in this way: have a nice idea, then use the... More
  • Spot on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 5

    by Saniphoto | 4th of September, 2007

    This kind of illustration-collage I like for two reasons: the good interpretation of the concept and the composition. The blue tonality add to it the right feeling. Occasionally I like to make also such kind of illustrations, so this is maybe why I'm attracted by this (successful)... More
  • Dreamstime vs. Traditional photography

    by Achilles | 4th of September, 2007

    In a recent survey we have asked buyers who used traditional agencies before finding Dreamstime, specific questions regarding their experience. The questions were chosen after reading several articles written by analysts of the traditional industry such as Chris Ferrone,... More
  • Spot on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 4

    by Saniphoto | 4th of September, 2007

    Here is another of the kind of images I love the most. Creative, humorous and witty. A simple business-financial concept (growth) very well interpreted. And the red color give the perfect touch of contrast to the scene. See Article
  • Spot on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 3

    by Saniphoto | 4th of September, 2007

    What I love of this photo is the clever usage of monochromatic tonality. Usually you see images of new year celebrations using bright colors, this one is made with a new (and in my opinion tasteful) feel for this topic. a refreshing view of a common theme. More
  • Spotlight on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 2

    by Saniphoto | 3rd of September, 2007

    This is one of the first images that I have seen and appreciated at Dreamstime when I joined. I was looking around to get an idea of what were the kind of images most downloaded and saw this nice photo-methapor. (Only later I found it belonged to the CEO of Dreamstime,... More
  • Spotlight on photos that I like from Dreamstime - 1

    by Saniphoto | 1st of September, 2007

    I like this kind of images, highly creative and with a twist, because it communicate a (serious) message with fun and cleverness. One can choose to represent anorexia with a crude image or with a metaphor. In this case the metaphor has an added value because of the squeezed... More

  • What future for the (micro)stock photography?

    by Saniphoto | 31st of August, 2007

    With digital cameras now so available to anyone, and sales that account for millions of items worldwide, the number of people that start photography as hobby or profession is obviously increasing. I don't think that with the oversupply of images there will be space for... More
  • What do I want ?

    by Pescarus | 30th of August, 2007

    The Stock gives you what it thinks you want, and you think that you have to want what`s on the stock. What you will chose, or what you will publish on the stock, if you forget the terms and conditions, might be something that will be approved, might be something... More
  • Different approach at stock photography

    by Saniphoto | 28th of August, 2007

    When my wife noticed that Dreamstime agency, where I was selling images taken with my Canon powershot (yes, my first 20-30 images accepted were taken with a point and shoot! After that, only Nikon reflex) she decided to take part in the game too. Not for the money, just... More

  • Targets n' Milestones

    by Thefinalmiracle | 26th of August, 2007

    As I was never a photographer, stock was a word related to investment and my countries financial position as well. I never knew that something like ‘stock photography’ was a term even when I was a regular browser of xxxxx for my general pictorial browsing. I was always... More

  • How did you start with stocks?

    by Natie | 22nd of August, 2007

    I was reading other members' articles here and an idea came to my mind: how all of you began working with stocks? I know that many of us are not professional photographers or illustrators, and we have various kinds of education and professions. What was the starting point... More
  • Microstocks like an addiction

    by Lukasztymszan | 20th of August, 2007

    I sell my photos on several microstocks. Dreamstime is my best one because of a good interface, planty ways to get useful information and lot's of possibilities to meet and keep in touch with other photographers. I had good and bad months with my sales but when it's just... More
  • Stepping on the path of stock photography

    by Fertographer | 20th of August, 2007

    I must admit I am not the best photographer out there not am I giving the best submissions for sale. Yet I must say stock photography changed my perspective at taking photographs. In the past I took so many photos, keeping them was good in a way but for a whole collection... More
