4 and a half years online!

I have noticed that I joined here on septembr 8th 2006! so it's 4 and a half years online! But I didn't start to upload seriously until august 2007... (the enormous amount of rejections on my first days discouraged me)

And time flies! Now I'm here with 1,491 files online and more than 2000 sales!! I'm getting a bit hard to reach 1,500 files since the big amount of rejects I'm having lately :S maybe it's time to buy a new camera and try to shoot more original pics ;)

I have some files that haven't sold oin years, they aren't good and I suppose they will end in the free section soon, but...

I make a last try to promote them here: these are the images I have used through this aryicle. If anyone is interested... (i suppose not, since the quality has increased so much in last years, but...anyway)

I would like to remark also that I have met very interesting people here, which I have as a facebook friends and I also have learned a lot in forums and improved photography skills

Now I see some of my old files isolated in white that are not isolated at all, or files with bad lighting, etc.

If only I were discovered stock photography before (on its beginnings, in 2004)... I would have improved before...

I will keep shooting and sending pics, in spite this is more difficult every time for non pros like me (all my portfolio is bult with a non DSLR neither a lense... but a canon powershot G9 and my old canon powershot A700!)

Do you believe it's time to buy a new camera??

Congratulations, Felicitations.
Personally, I wouldn't call what you have a problem. Your 4 years with Dreamstime got you more download twice the number of your portfolio size. To me, that is excellent. If Dreamstime gave me that sort of percentage, I wouldn't change a thing . I would think DT has done an excellent job for you.
As for buying a new camera? I don't think the camera has anything to do with getting more downloads. In your place, I would spend my earnings with Dreamstime on a trip and lots of champagne , lol.
No , seriously, if I had it this good with Dreamstime, I'd stay with them and give them more new photos with the old camera.
Que Dios te acompane.
P.S. now can I get back to sleep ? (do you like my new avatar? been a rough year with DT for me. so I am getting back to bed, lol)

Titania, congratulations! That's fantastic about your achievements in that period of time! You always grow as a photographer and it's cool that you can look back at your older images and see where you have improved since then. And you never know, one of them might sell! Again, congratulations on your achievements! :)

Congratulations on a wonderful portfolio and decent score in sales. I remember a time when I didn't have a DSLR and all I could think was "if I had a SLR I could have done wonders". Although I am still awaiting my first sale here in DT, I take the liberty in telling that you would definitely be a great inspiration for those who are yet to have a SLR but still dream of success in stock photography or simply better photography.

You've got a great portfolio and it makes sense to go through it and delete the photos that have been there for a long time and have no sales. You still take great shots with your old camera but I'm sure getting a new camera would help you; that would be great motivator to take lots of photos for a start :-)
