  • Give Thanks, Give Back

    by Tangie | 11th of November, 2011

    It's the season for many things - picture-perfect snow falls and autumnal trees, holiday feasts with family and harvest festivals are the first things that come to mind, but everyone has their traditions and nostalgia for this time of year. Universally, it's a season with... More
  • The search engine revealed

    by Tangie | 1st of April, 2010

    Many questions have been asked and heated debates started on this subject in the last few years. It is that thing each and every contributor wonders about at least twice a day when checking account statistics and sales. It is one of Dreamstime's greatest mysteries and best... More
  • Black Is the New Black

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of January, 2009

    The July 08 issue of Italian Vogue featured only black models and became one of the best selling foreign magazine issues ever in the U.S. Photographer Steven Meisel shot the issue and was quoted as saying that he hoped that the success of the layouts would show the world... More
  • What size is....?

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of October, 2008

    The past couple of weeks found me in New York just as Fashion Week was ending and last week in Southern California for a seminar. Perhaps because NY was filled with fashionistas and models, I noticed a lot of very, very thin women in the park and on the street. A jogger... More
  • GENERATION Y

    by Ellenboughn | 19th of August, 2008

    You know who you are, Generation Y. An analysis of Internet and social network use tells me that a majority of you reading this were born between 1977 and 1997. You are the children of the last of the baby boomers and the most studied group of young adults anywhere because... More
  • Rites of Passage

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of May, 2008

    Life is a series of events that mark our passage through time. Some events are as unremarkable as a Grandfather teaching his grandson how to swim or parents looking on as their child takes its first step. Other occasions such as traditional religious events or advancement... More
  • Modern Medicine

    by Ellenboughn | 23rd of January, 2008

    Biotech companies generate ever-promising new drugs and treatments while politicians in the US argue over the cost of health care. What to shoot to get your images used in the enormous world of health care education, promotion and advertising? Why should you care? Each year... More
  • Composition

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of December, 2007

    There are some composition tricks that apply to stock photography specifically. As more and more image use migrates to the web, the old stock photo rule of leaving room for type is becoming less significant. It is becoming replaced with approaches that enhance an image’... More
  • The RGB of it all

    by Ellenboughn | 10th of August, 2007

    Or is it the CYMK? (One matters online; the other in print). Do you dream in color? Did people dream in black and white before the invention of black and white film? If so, how did they know what the world looked like in black and white? When are color photos best and when... More
  • PACA Annual Meeting

    by Ellenboughn | 5th of May, 2007

    It's late Friday night in Alexandria, Virginia and from my nicely upgraded room on the 24th floor I can see the Capital and the Washington Monument. But I'm not here to sightsee. Tonight was the opening reception of the PACA (Picture Agency Council of America) annual meeting.... More
  • What is She Wearing?

    by Ellenboughn | 20th of February, 2007

    Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one. Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top gives a clue... More
  • Entering to Illustration World

    by Mgphotostock | 21st of September, 2017

    Hello everybody, I'm entering slowly to the wide, well illustration world that details, colors, subject and the little touch is very precious in this branch. Some of my illustrations (just tried out):     When making an illustration, it... More
  • School Attendance

    by Jaquiht | 17th of September, 2017

    It’s the time of year when I traditionally use my photography to help local schools to achieve their targets.   The dragonflies and butterflies are starting to hide away for another year, so I am turning my macro lens towards the ground in search of photogenic fungus.... More
  • Swanning around Southampton

    by Jaquiht | 10th of September, 2017

    It’s not especially uncommon for me to be wrong, and this week has been no exception. I recently had a whinge about the local mute swans being difficult to photograph because of their propensity to position themselves in bright sunshine on dark ponds. However, they have... More
  • Photos that stand out. Part 3

    by TheSlowWalkers | 21st of August, 2017

    Well, it's about time that I showed you another five photos that I think stand out from the crowd. This group differs from the previous ones just a little, as it has a black and white photo included. Black and white tends to get a little overlooked these days but can... More
  • Orchids, travel and photos

    by Cabestrera | 1st of August, 2017

    I discovered my Mother's love for orchids some time after having returned to Venezuela, 10 years ago. Maybe it was before, but I was not involved. Until I noticed, "I answered," that every time we went to the house of an aunt, passing the front of a particular... More
