I became part of the Dreamstime family 3 years ago, but was like the family member that you only saw at the reunion every couple years. I only got on, maybe, a couple times a year and uploaded even less, but today I decided to start getting more involved because apparently my work isn't as useless as I thought. I remember my first excepted image on here and also how long it felt without any views or sales. Today I logged on after a long time of being inactive to find out my 32 images have 38 sales, two images are level 2 and a bunch have at least one+
sale!!! I know to most people on this site, that is a minuscule number on each end, but to me, it was like Christmas haha. I'm young still, starting to finish up school and over the Summer I started my own small photography business giving me a lot of useful and valuable experience behind the lens. Along with all that, I've upgraded most of my gear from a small Sony Alpha with kit lenses to a Canon 7D and lenses like the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II, Canon 300mm f/2.8 IS and my favorite lens ever, the Canon 50 f/1.8. I've decided I will start taking more pictures, uploading more work, and get more involved with Dreamstime and see if I can catch up to those of you with 100+ images uploaded and see how that might effect my experience in the real world! Wish me luck on catching up to all of you!
-Just had to get that out of my system :)
