  • What microstock photography gives to me.

    by Dmitrytsvetkov | 27th of August, 2010

    I heard about microstock photography a little bit less than a year ago. It was autumn. September or Octomber. I'm start thinking: "I'm not worse than all these people who make there money. Why not to try?" And I upload my favourite files. How I was disapointed when I... More
  • Be Successful on DT: Stay Active

    by Visceralimage | 18th of August, 2010

    I took a couple months off from uploading on Dreamstime to prepare for my Russia expedition (5 years in Russia). I also took a break from the message boards on DT. I noticed that my sales dropped by half; most interestingly, my sales of Bald Eagles stopped. My images... More

    by Chrissatchwell | 16th of August, 2010

  • Being Unique is Your Bright Future in Microstock

    by Petarneychev | 29th of July, 2010

    If you've been a part of microstock photography for more than a year then you already (should) know it - unique images sell best, competition is severe on all levels, it's increasingly harder to deliver more (creative) and better content at the same time. If you haven't... More

  • Make Your Landscapes Really Pop!

    by Davewebbphoto | 24th of June, 2010

    A photograph isn't necessarily reality - but simply your version of reality. Have you ever taken a photo of a stunning landscape only to find the image doesn't do what you're seeing - and feeling - any justice whatsoever? There are a lot of techniques I could talk... More

  • A Bit of Hard Work Does Pay Off

    by BCritchley | 3rd of June, 2010

    Well I have been a member here for just over a year and for most part not very successful. My first month saw me get 15 uploads and 45 rejections. It hurt and I pretty much felt fed up and left it feeling like I did not have what it takes to provide stock photographs.... More

  • Success and failure

    by Jianbinglee | 14th of May, 2010

    After another two days, no one approval. If I am concerned about, there will be a very bad mood. In fact I need is a careful analysis of the reasons, calm face of failure, detached look at a game. See Article
