A helping hand for the newbies (part 2)

posted on 27th of august, 2007

Do you remember when you first joined DT and you waited patiently for that first sale? I do! and I also remember the feeling of elation it brought with it. What I want to do is look at a portfolio with no sales, buy what i think is the best image in that portfolio and show it on a blog with 2 others from the same portfolio that I think should be worth a sale or two.

I wont be going into as much detail as David does in his blogs as the point of my series of blogs is to get the ball rolling for some of our newbies.

So here is the 2nd image I've bought from a newbie

His name is Alexander Tivanov and he's from the Russian Federation. I love this image for it's simplicity and various shades of green. A very simple yet striking image. Here are two more of Alexanders images that i feel could do well for him.

Good luck with your Dreamstime career Alexander. You have a great eye for photography and I feel you'll do great in this business.

I love those images. The images of the women look like they belong in a health or beauty magazine advertisement. :)

I wish I had this kind of help when I started off.
