  • Give It Away

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of January, 2009

    The idea of free images makes the budget minded sing and some artists cringe. How can it be a good idea to give away what you are trying to sell? On the one hand is the sanctity of the copyright. On the other is the spirit of the Internet and an age-old marketing ploy: the... More
  • Ups and Downs

    by Ellenboughn | 14th of October, 2008

    Images that reflect the current turmoil in world financial markets and it's impact on key industries will be in the news and show up in print and online for months (years?) to come whether the economy plunges further or rebounds quickly. What goes up, must come down but... More
  • India Now

    by Ellenboughn | 22nd of April, 2008

    Often photos of India show the poorer side of life. It is true that photojournalism has done much to alleviate the state of the poor by exposing their plight to the world. Too often though we fail to photograph evidences of positive economic growth and modernization of ancient... More
  • I Want to Thank the Academy....

    by Ellenboughn | 29th of August, 2007

    As fall approaches, the music and film communities begin preparation for the award season. Hollywood puts on the glam as the award shows build to the granddaddy of them all: the Academy awards. Unless you are credentialed or very clever paparazzi, you are not likely to be... More
  • Commercial-style photos

    by Moravaldes | 16th of January, 2017

    From the simplest but trying to do it as useful and professionally as possible, no need for model release (it is not necessary in this case) because we can not see the face of the model, so everything works faster and simpler And the best of everything, the model is me,... More
  • Visit Cesky Krumlov in Czech Republic

    by Frank11 | 26th of December, 2016

       Most tourists who visit the Czech Republic in the heart of Europe, discover Prague with its monuments- famous Charles Bridge, Hradcany Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral or Mala Strana etc. Because I'm from the Czech Republic, so I know that this country has many beautiful... More
  • Why do I like markets and street food

    by Frank11 | 19th of December, 2016

       I like traveling, taking pictures and I like good food too. I admire marketeers, for example, on French and Italian markets and street stands, how long and beautifully they describe about producing cheese or sausage you want to buy. In the beautiful Provence -... More
  • Fast acceptance of images: hurrah for the editors!

    by Physi28 | 11th of December, 2016

    Some two months ago I noticed a rather slow rhythm in the work of our editors, I used to wonder if it was coz of an unusual high amount of submitted photos , some editors being on holidays (hopefully) or not feeling well (hopefully not) or both reasons together. During this... More

  • Turning Refusal into Acceptance

    by Kheng1987 | 30th of July, 2016

    One of the common refusal comments is "The image contains elements that might be protected by copyright/trademark (logos, brands, specific buildings etc.)... Read more: https://www.dreamstime.com/thread_148". I have my fair share of refusals with this comment.  ... More
  • Blue hour reflections and experiences

    by Hstovring | 26th of June, 2016

    The blue hour occurs twice every day, just before sunrise and after sunset, but despite its regularity it provides almost magical opportunities for photography. Do you lack colors in your photos? Would you appreciate more mystical atmosphere in your frames? And would you... More

  • Yalova, city of Turkey

    by Keremgo | 5th of April, 2016

    I've worked as hard as I could all my life. I wasn't a photographer nor an illustrator in the past - never went to school and learned everything by myself. No one did a favor to me, no one helped. I'm lucky that I have my parents who supported me on my passions as much as... More
