  • Trying new stuff. And it gets accepted.

    by Beyo1980 | 10th of December, 2013

    When you have two kids and one of them is 6 (the other almost 2) you can get very creative in thinking and doing when it comes to getting ideas for shoots. Kids never sit still and there attention span isnt the biggest in the world. How do you make sure you let them sit still?... More

  • Think Tank

    by Wongj84 | 5th of June, 2011

    Its often hard to think of good stock ideas. Perhaps we can inspire one another? What works, what doesn't. Lighting ideas, that make or break photos. Ideas that are lacking, designers feel free to chime in as well. Micro stock has been around for awhile, and it seems... More
  • Box Breakers

    by Herminutomo | 26th of April, 2011

    People always said: "be creative, think outside the box!" Easy to say, but sometimes, very challenging, especially if you have a very orthodox way of thinking. So sometimes, some people need stimulants. So here this blog is dedicated to images that helped me to break... More
  • Worth it?

    by Sooogles | 28th of December, 2010

    I sat here wondering if it's worth the time of putting up stock photos on this website, then I realized I spend a lot of time thinking about how I waste time, and then it slips away without me knowing. So yeah it's worth it. See Article

  • Finding inspiration

    by Treasurehunter22 | 6th of May, 2010

    A few days ago, someone asked about where to get inspiration. To me, there are a lot of places. I've been a DT buyer for 4 years...I haven't bought a lot -- about 120 images, mostly of which are used in a medical-type newsletter. I've used these 2 recently: Now that... More

  • Reassessing my creativity

    by Danienel | 16th of October, 2009

  • What do we do when we don't have pictures to upload

    by Nikitu | 28th of May, 2009

    Every photographer reaches a dry patch at some point. Lack of inspiration, or a too busy period in his/her life, falling in love, falling out of love, camera broke, not enough light, there are a million reasons a photographer such as ourselves would like to take a break... More

  • Thinking ahead for future sales

    by Irisangel | 18th of May, 2008

    A while ago, I got a bit of advice from someone who has been contributing to stock photography sites for a lot longer than I have. That advice was to prepare images for future sales, as many designers work months in advance of an upcoming holiday or event. For example, last... More

    by Limeyrunner | 20th of August, 2007
