  • The creative process in stock photography

    by Saniphoto | 26th of November, 2008

    Brainstorming is the key word. It means to sit down and let your mind put out every conceivable (also crazy!) ideas around one set theme. I started to use this many years ago for other purposes than stock photography, and it still works fine. In a session, better... More

  • Having fun with photos

    by Dcwcreations | 13th of November, 2008

    One of my most enjoyable things to do is get together with a very close friend of mine for some photo shoots. We often come up with a few ideas each and wait until we get together to try them out. It's a weekend spent taking and talking about good times and stock photos.... More

  • Reaching a milestone

    by Southernstar71 | 17th of October, 2008

    I finally got there. 50 uploads. It took quite a while (almost a year in fact), and at a certain point I'd given up hope altogether, but I got there. The most important thing, though, is not reaching the milestone, it's the path you travel on. For me, it meant learning... More

  • Another Wedding Season Over

    by Retina2020 | 8th of October, 2008

    I love shooting weddings for friends and family. Weddings are so beautiful and emotional and brings a feeling of joy. Sadly in colder climates, weddings tend to slow down in Fall. Weddings is a good place to think about stock photography. First of all the models and objects... More

    Well I think I have done it, all my ducks are in a row now. My exclusive status ended two days ago. I have recouped all funds lost to that status ending, including the $6.00 I was in the red when that took place. I suspect I have some friends who bailed me out. thank... More
  • 1st Month of Being Exclusive

    by Retina2020 | 1st of October, 2008

    At the end of August, I decided to be an exclusive contributer to Dreamstime. It took me a long time to make this decision. I'm still relatively new to stock photography. I've been here for almost 1 year. At the beginning, I thought the best way to fund my hobby was to... More
  • Things that make you go hmm

    by Litifeta | 30th of September, 2008

    I guess so many of us are looking and wondering and waiting to see what all this scandal in Wall Street means for us. Can we, the ordinary folk even contemplate the measures by which these people must analyse the risk involved in essentially betting in billions of dollars,... More
  • Scanning for stock

    by Bradcalkins | 30th of September, 2008

    I have managed to get an image accepted that is scanned from some of my old slides. I lived for a year in Bangladesh and took quite a lot of photos there, as well as during some travels in India. Scanning is a little frustrating as you have to deal with a number of issues:... More

    Hello :-) This short blog will cover some thoughts about microstock market. It is also my first (test) post. By the way I'm writing this 2nd time from scratch, I just lost all the content previously written here, as I did not enter any tags. So learn from it, and... More
