    by Catarii | 11th of September, 2017

  • 10 reasons to love bacon

    by Catarii | 30th of August, 2017

    Maaan, I don't know about you but I love bacon. A bit smoked, a bit crispy, with that gorgeous sound it makes in the pan, bacon has driven many people crazy since the first time it was introduced in the cookery.   Now, I know that many nutritionists and doctors are preaching... More
  • Why my photographs aren’t selling?

    by Tru9ja | 13th of September, 2017

    There could be many reasons why we are here. I can assure you many are here because they desire to sell their photographs and make some extra cash. Having joined with that good intention, the reality on the ground is not what you initially envisaged. Sales are low. Not... More
  • Rural Hungarian landscapes

    by Bwagner656 | 20th of September, 2017

    I'd like to show you a few less known but beautiful places in rural Hungary. You might heard about Hortobágy and the Puszta. We skip that for now. First lets take a look at the hills just north of Lake Balaton. Not high, but the climate is excellent for wine making.... More

    by Katairobi | 28th of August, 2017

    by Allexxe | 14th of September, 2017

    This photo was the first photo that I have uploaded, it had good impact and it was bought fast.       I am happy about that and it made me confident. I thought of duality as the theme, ice and fire, really caught my attention. I put some ice cubes and water, in... More
  • Superstar of the Woods

    by Sangiorzboy | 14th of September, 2017

      I believe we can all agree that the Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is, by far, the most recognizable mushroom in the world. It is the Poster-boy for trouble, the Icon for poisonous mushrooms. However, not many people know that it's widely consumed throughout the northern... More
  • All about chocolate

    by Alionaz | 19th of September, 2017

    It says that 99% of people love chocolate, other 1% lies. I don’t know if it’s true but it could be.   We can eat it, drink it, have a nice spa with it, find our health with it and so many things we can do with this perfect ingredient. “…well and getting some... More
  • Photography as a game

    by Tarboaca | 21st of September, 2017

  • Unsociable

    by Jaquiht | 26th of August, 2017

    I realised last Saturday that I am an antisocial photographer. Or maybe unsociable is a kinder way of putting it. Either way, I am not sociable once I have a camera in my hand.   It was my big day out to a photography event at the local Birds of Prey centre last weekend,... More
  • 1000 Uploads: Reflection on Joining the Dreamstime Community

    by Erinrandolph | 2nd of September, 2017

      What, at the time, seemed like every single day, my 8th Grade teacher would ask, "What did John Dewey say?” And we’d all reply, in unison, “You learn what you do!” Well, today I congratulate myself on 1000 uploads. I know. I know I said uploads and not... More
  • 1000 milestone

    by Patrick57 | 12th of September, 2017

    I have recently achieved the 1000 image milestone on Dreamstime, which seemed a long way away when I started actively uploading files to Dreamstime just over a year ago and the first month my acceptance percentage was under 60%. I took note of the comments on refusals, read... More
  • An Old Camera And A Cheap Lens

    by Keremgo | 16th of September, 2017

  • New Camera Review

    by Angelaostafichuk | 3rd of September, 2017

    Cameras, if you’re reading this you probably have one, or two or three… And you might be wondering do I need another one? Last year I was wondering that too and decided to jump the gun and change things up a bit. Instead of getting a new Nikon I decided to go much,... More

    by Karenfoleyphotography | 5th of September, 2017

    Did you know that September 5th is (was?) “National Be Late for Something Day”? As a person who is impossibly early in a fashionably late-running world, I thought I would embrace the holiday to see if I could find the advantage that the rest of the populated... More
