Returning to Dreamstime

posted on 6th of february, 2014

It's been years, 6 years since I last managed to upload a picture to Dreamstime.

Many reasons contributed to this fact. I will talk about two:

1. I hadn't been able to get away from my daily activities to photograph. Children, career, getting my BA, all these factors translated to ever so limiting time to shoot.

2. Technical deterioration of my equipment - My aging EOS 10D from 2003 was no longer capable of shooting quality images that suited the raised standards of DT. My images were rejected to a point of 50% rejection, and I couldn't upgrade my camera.

So DT collection has stayed on 151 files for more than 6 years.

but the joy of contribution was not there

sales were nice, and the files still sales,

(old city of Istanbul - uploaded 2006)

I am back! I finally bought my dream camera - the Fuji X100 and it delivers. I had 2 rejections out of 30 files I've uploaded in the past month! what an acceptance rate!

I hope new sales are on their way, I hope many buyers will enjoy my files. I decided to concentrate on landscape imagery.

Not only the new camera allows me to explor photography again, it also good enough for DT.

It's nice to see that your sales kept going even if you did not upload for such a long period. Good luck with your new camera!

Welcome back and have fun with your new camera! I've uploaded some new files taken with a mirrorless (not Fuji). Fingers crossed!

Welcome back ... after reading this I realize I am also at exactly 151 images and have been too busy to upload for the last couple of months. But will not use that as an excuse moving forward. Will have to find time to do what I love. Maybe take pictures of me being busy ha ha ha .... thanks for sharing ... will be my goal to upload more in the up coming days and make it a habit ...
