Creative Backgrounds

Hi folks,I am at last getting back to work now with my photography and learning more about Photoshop.I must say it has given this 'old girl' a new lease of life.The last couple of weeks I've been trying to extend my creativity with Abstracts and Backgrounds with digital artwork, and I'm finding it fun, because I never know how something is going to turn out, or whether it could be useable for stock work.As they say 'you never know until you've tried'.I thought I would show one them here... continue reading

My Brov.

HelloThis post is to say thank you to the folks that commented on a previous blog of mine about me donating some of my earnings from Dreamstime to a Cancer Charity.This to me is more important than ever, after losing my brother nearly four weeks ago to Cancer.I know this post probably sounds very sad, but I know I have to do my little bit, albeit, in a small way, to help combat this dreadful illness so other families don’t have to go through the trauma of these life changing events.I... continue reading

Benchmark Achieved

Hello DreamstimersIt’s been a little while since I blogged about anything but in my last blog I mentioned about my benchmark was to have 150 images online by the end of the year. Today I’m pleased to say I managed it a few months earlier.It is surprising, but when you put your mind to to the task in hand, it’s amazing what can be achieved (Note to Self – get and keep organised and to keep uploading).Below are the images that took me over my benchmark and now look forward to further... continue reading

Hi folksI just wanted to show you one of my latest uploads onto Dreamstime of a Chocolate Box type image of a Country Cottage complete with a pond.This image does not do the cottage justice, as it's absolutely gorgeous to see in real life.You really need to see the full image to see what I mean.Many thanks for all the views on my portfolio, and hope you enjoy this Country Cottage.BTW I'm now up to 135 images online, and well on the way to my target of 150 online.Pam x   ... continue reading

Future sales

HelloI have now decided to offer 50% of any of my future earnings on Dreamstimes to a Cancer Research Charity.The reason for this is that over the years I have seen quite a few of my family and friends succumbed to this awful disease, and I want to try in my own way to help bring the dream that little bit closer, so hopefully one day we can kick the butt of this dreadful disease, so no other families go through the trauma that so many have already gone through.I realise that at the moment,... continue reading

More uploads

Hello Dreamstimers,I just thought I would let you know that since my last post of achieving 100 uploads to my portfolio, and that my aimin that post was to have 150 online by the end of the year. I’m pleased to say so far, I’m up to 116 images, and I still have a few more pending. I would like to think I'm on track with my aims, and possibly some sales sprinkled here and there.Here are two of my images recently added to my portfolio, and I would like to thank you for all the encouragement... continue reading

100 images uploaded

Hello Dreamstimers,At last I have got my 100th file approved today and also I am now up to eight sales - not a huge amount I know, but after a few very difficult months recovering from a broken hip and moving house etc. I am just happy to have got this far. By the end of this year I hope to have passed another benchmark and that is to have at least 150 plus files uploaded, and a few more sales.Many many thanks to the buyers for the sales, and also for all the views on my portfolio.... continue reading

New Sale

Hello folks,This is just to thank the buyer of my Radiator Control and Valves image, which was sold today.This has come as a very pleasant surprise, especially as I’ve been laid up in hospital after fracturing my thigh, (which had to be pinned – ouch).I’m on the mend now and hopefully I should be able to get back to my photography over the next couple weeks or so.Thank you to the buyer once again, and my apologies for not being able to give DT much attention.Take care folks... continue reading

Portfolio

Hi folks,This is just a quick post to thank the Dreamtimers who have started to follow my portfolio, it really is very much appreciated.When I look around other artist’s portfolios I very quickly realise how much I have to learn, but I’m loving every minute of my learning curve. Now I am slowly getting to grips with the mechanics of photography and editing and also Social Media I will enjoy the experience even more.What a wonderful way to spend my retirement. It keeps me busy, which suits... continue reading
