The Nikon D810 is the second generation of Nikon’s D800 line and brings some great improvements over the original D800/800e series.

Photos that stand out Part 2

Some of you might have seen an earlier blog about photos that, for me, stood out in some way. Bettina (Bwagner656) pointed out that the majority had contrasting colours, which, when I looked back was right and yet at the time of posting, I hadn't realised. Since then, when I've been out with the camera, I've tried to look for colourful contrasts and so far, it's been more difficult than I thought. I'm still quite new to photography, so it's a case of trying to look at everything differently and not... continue reading

The Jabbering of a Newbie, Pt 2

 In my last post, I told the community about how I was new to DT, but not new to the stock photography business. then I commenced telling of all the things I have learned to do, & what not to do. Well, an update on that. I logged in today to look at my portfolio to see which photos were being viewed the most.The ironic thing is, the photo that I posted in my last blog showing that I had not learned enough about lighting, the "Deserted Barn" photo, which I have posted in this blog, it is... continue reading

2,000 sales - the Power of Grit and how it applies to photography

In a very interesting coincidence, I stumbled upon this TED talk about 2 weeks before I reached my 2,000 sales benchmark (today!!!).Grit is a concept that claims that individuals who show passion and perseverance have more chance to succeed in the long run than other factors such as IQ or EQ. More information can be found in this link: Angela Lee Duckworth: Grit: The power of passion and persverance I can testify that in photography it could never be truer.I started my photography... continue reading

Goal no. 2! And approval rate increases...

 My second Goal with this image: the n. 10 in my portfolio. After I realized and learnt how to take approvable photos, I also decided to upload only exclusive images in DT. I find Dreamstime gives a chance to new photographers in a perfect way. They are attentive and care for your images in fashion way: they will explain perfectly the reasons of each refusal, giving also a "learning lesson" on how to submit better pictures the next time you try to take a shot for stock photography. Never on other... continue reading
