My brother is pretty handy when it comes to computers, networking, and stuff of that nature.However, when he sets foot into my workshop, I feel that it's necessary to count his fingers on the way out, just to make sure he hasn't left anything behind.When he comes to visit, we'll almost invariably set up the cameras and strobes down in my workshop.Here are some images from a session or two. continue reading

High Tech Crime

With a cursory glance into crime, investigation, and/or security/privacy, I see it's exceedingly easy to find a picture of a security camera.Come to think of it, the whole topic is covered from wildly abstract to completely cliche.The fun for me has been picking out a handful of images that excite.Ones that raise and eyebrow.Check them out.Add your own in the comments, and designers... do these fine contributors the honor of a download.You'll make their day.Thanks so much. continue reading

Cool Shots

I like it when an image has a lot to say, but it really doesn't have to do much to bring about that impression.Maybe it's edgy stuff, maybe it's an old concept renewed, or a brilliant composition... it's just magnificent when you come up with something that stirs up some good old fashioned buzz.Take these images for instance.They all have a little something to say, and in my opinion, they do it well.What's one of your favorite images in the Dreamstime collection?Please feel free to... continue reading

Strapped for Ideas!

"The light comes on," as they say at that sparkling moment of epiphany.Isn't it interesting to see people practically come to life with an idea?All of a sudden, the wind fills their sails, and the defunct has once again found the groove.I hadn't noticed until now... anyone see something in common across all of the images?It's a right handed world we live in, isn't it? continue reading

Mannequin Abuse

I'm taking a brief moment this morning to render some respect to all of the hard working mannequins that have toiled and sacrificed to further our craft.So if you see a mannequin, please take time to thank him or her for all that they do.Of course, if you see one you like here, you should incorporate it into your next design! continue reading
