  • A fifth image

    by Photoaria | 3rd of October, 2014

    I am happy to finally have 5 image on Dreamstime. I am still learning the art of stock photo. I do more artistic photo and this does not appear to be what Dreamstime is looking for. This is nice image. To take a photo like this, it is nice to have a good zoom!... More
  • My way to make a simple object more interesting

    by Katey997 | 4th of September, 2014

    I've always liked a photo that has a single object or main subject and not to cluttered for me. i like to make sure the point the object is the main point of focus, zooming in on this tree which is the main object, it gives a depth of field where if you used a wide angle... More
  • lens stress

    by Kimdeadman | 9th of August, 2013

    Am I the only photographer who suffers from lens stress/envy/anxiety? I'm slowly nearing the 100 photos landmark with dreamstime and up until recently have made do with one lens; the tamron 17 -50 f2.8 (non IS) which has served me very well. I have always known I would... More
  • First accepted image from new lens bought from first payout

    by Neilmachin | 6th of June, 2013

    A short while ago my balance went over the magic $100 for the first time and I was able to request a payout. I put the money towards a lens I have been wanting for some time, a Sigma 10-20mm zoom. This is the first image from that lens to be accepted on Dreamstime.... More
  • It's all about the children

    by Tempestz | 8th of May, 2013

    As mentioned in a previous blog of mine, capturing the perfect images of children sometimes means letting kids behave naturally to catch some great candid shots. Think of children exploring a beach at low tide and the expressions on their faces as they find a starfish or... More
  • 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
  • Why zooms rock (Part 2)

    by Bradcalkins | 23rd of February, 2011

    A while ago, I did a blog on prime lenses and their strengths - but there is still a case for zooms: 1. When you can't move or can't get closer! People often refer to 'sneaker zoom' with prime lenses - meaning they walk closer or further to adjust framing. That is... More

  • Tripod

    by Vtr | 5th of April, 2009

    How important is a Tripod to a photographer ? This could be a question that would be in a mind until you have one. But the point is who is willing to carry a tripod already the camera bag with those lens and charger storage media and camera makes it heavy. But Wait ..... More
  • A different Zoom

    by Arsenestefania | 19th of January, 2009

    I wanted to take a macro picture of a Christmas tinsel garland, made from a special material, and the auto focusing was not able to give me the desired level of clarity. But, as I think that each one of you stepped through this “revealing” process, you may consider this... More
  • Canon EF 70-200 F/4 L USM Review

    by MinervaStudio | 25th of June, 2008

    Canon 70-200 F/4 L is said to be one, if not THE, of the best lenses Canon ever produced. I've bought it a few days ago, and I can estabilish they talked well. This lens is AWESOME. The IS one is even better because of the stabilizer, but the optic scheme is the same. Let'... More
  • Choice of lens for the portrait.

    by Shaileshnanal | 10th of June, 2008

    You see a subject and fantastic background and u have a lens that is standard lens and zoom lens. Which one would u opt for. For tight head close up zoom lens is a must. But for head and shoulder portrait you can still use standard lens which has finer glass elements... More
  • First images with the new lens

    by Mheuver | 7th of October, 2007

    I went on a trip with my girlfriend a few weeks ago, which was the perfect time to try out my new Canon 70-200 F4. I really loved the sharpness of the lens and different perspective the 70-200 range gave me. Shooting landscape with this focal range needs some practice though.... More
  • Tamron Di-II 18-250 - finally have it!

    by Sebcz | 18th of September, 2007

    The new Tamron 18-250 has just arrived, I'll be testing it for some time. As for now, only my 'how it feels in hand' impressions: solid build, very nice manual focusing, quite pleasant AF sound, and that range ! But of course its optical performance is the most important,... More
  • Bought a new lens

    by Mheuver | 1st of September, 2007

    After being slightly disappointed with the performance of the Sigma 70-300 APO, I decided to buy a new mid-range to short tele zoom. I especially didn't like the background blur (bokeh) of Sigma. Although I started to appreciate the range of the 70-300, the image in the top... More
