First Image

Hello! I have decided about 2 weeks ago to give this website a try. I have been doing photography as a hobby for the past 25 years of my life. So I thought this would be an interesting challenge.

I think I can do good photography (but then, of course, I am biased)... However doing stock photography seems to be a different thing. Not only you have to be good at photography, but you must meet the requirements of Dreamstime for stock photography. I seem to be a bit to art oriented, based on the first reviews...

But so far, it is fun. It forces me to think, find ideas, and take pictures that I would not necessarily take otherwise. And that is a good thing. Phtography requires practice, practice and practice.

I have 2 so far that have been approved. My favorite was taken during a recent hike in the mountain.

The rainbow picture is mine, but I didn't try to upload it. It is probably too artistic for Dreamstime


Welcome in dreamstime and good work! Nice image!


Congratulations! I am new to DT too. I have a very small portfolio at the moment which I am hoping to gradually increase.
There is a big difference between a stock photograph and a beautiful artistic photograph. I'm sure you will see this for yourself very soon, then your photographs will get accepted at a faster rate. I love your rainbow photo, I have one in my portfolio too. Good luck :)


Good luck


Good luck and welcome to DT.


It is fun being in here, uploading photos and watch your balance raise. And it is indeed a different challenge than just taking a good photography.. You have to aim for the user, that is the key on these micro stock sites.. Congratulations with your approved photos and good luck in the future! :)


I did the same thing there is less that three years ago. I am still here ;)
By the way Congratulations for your first pictures !!!
