"Unofficial" Featured Collection #1 - Photographers with Cameras

posted on 6th of january, 2013

Welcome to the first installment of Unofficial Featured Collections of Dreamstime. I plan on periodically selecting and writing about Dreamstime collections that I feel are of high quality and noteworthy. Some of the criteria I plan on using are: theme cohesiveness, image quality, diversity of contributors, & collection maintenance. If you want to suggest a collection to feature, please leave suggestions at the designated thread, and include a few sentences telling why you think the collection is especially good. Note that the selection process is completely unofficial and does not represent any endorsement by Dreamstime.

To kick off our first Unofficial Featured Collection, I have selected a collection that may represent many of us. In it you will find numerous photographs and illustrations of photographers experiencing the world around them through a viewfinder. The collection, Photographers with Cameras, is maintained by Melonstone and contains almost 200 images created by over 160 Dreamstime contributors. Melonstone started this collection back in 2009 and has continued to add to it and maintain its theme since then.

Several of the images from the collection are shown below, but I encourage you to visit the collection, and see if you find reflections of yourself in any of the images.

Hey, thanks for using my Photographers with Cameras collection as your first Featured Collection! I think your plan to regularly feature a different collection is a great idea & is something DT should keep an eye on for future development into a valued resource for buyers.
