My first image was accepted by Dreamstime in May 2009 and about 8 months later with much effort I have reached 502 images today. Although my earnings are around $250 I spent that amount replacing one Nikor macro lens [ second hand at that ]. But I treated my Dreamstime work as a tutorial in photography learning from rejections although sometimes being depressed by theshortcomings of my submissions.I studied the work of successful members and being interested in politics and economics learned... continue reading

What I’ve learned in 2009I had my first photo accepted in October.It was a picture of an outhouse with a solar panel attached to charge a light inside.I took the photo with a Sony Cybershot I carried around in my jeans pocket.I’ve been thinking about how my life has changed since then.This is what I learned in the last 3 months of 2009 by contributing to Dreamstime:1. Just because your first picture submitted was accepted doesn’t mean you are a good photographer.2. If your... continue reading
Before moving to a new year, we would like to disclose some backstage info for our active and ever growing contributing community: Dreamstime's 2009 best 10 images, a list of the most downloaded files this year. And since this cat is out of (Santa's) bag, here is another tip: although last year's top ten images still sell well and remain among most downloaded - in top 20 or 30 - they are no longer featured in top 10. Which means there is always room for improvement and fresh content has been uploaded... continue reading
My first full year of stock has passed, when I think I produced my best images in order to reach my objections:- 500 images online on Dreamstime- 1.0 download/image ration (actually 0.98)- 70% acceptance rateI've learnt a great deal about photography this year, tips that I would like to share here:- Edit my own work: I stopped submitting every sharp enough image I could produce and started to edit my work very tightly. The number of images I submit monthly went down, but both D/I ratio... continue reading
