When I am not running around taking pictures of everything in site, I drive a transit bus.When we are out on the road we meet all kinds of people from all walks of life.This is the story of one of those encounters in November 2014  I was driving into a beautiful fall sunset, the sky was a stunning mixture of winter-like blues and grays with a bright splash of yellow on the horizon. I pulled my bus into the stop. She was wearing a bulky plaid jacket, bulky because there were several sweaters... continue reading

Is it addiction?

I'm so impatient to have 50 images uploaded. I am at the half of the way now. I don't know why do I want it. I am thinking about became exclusive contributor. Should I do it? There is not enough time in these days to take some shots or to do some illustrations. It is the part of school year, when I have to pass the exams. In spite of the exams I try to find some free time to shoot something or draw something. I am not satisfied with my images. Should I stop and do it again after exams? Yes, I should!... continue reading

Origin Stories

Until a few months ago I didn't know (or care) much about photography at all.I'd heard terms such as aperture, white balance, depth of field and what not, but had little more than a vague understanding of what they meant.Shooting holiday snaps with a point and shoot, these terms hardly applied to me.Photography was just a matter of pointing a camera at something, pressing the button halfway then pushing down again.Point.Shoot.Voila, there's a photo.It's vaguely in focus, now where's... continue reading

Addiction to work....

In fact the world Addiction has lot of meanings and phrases. Some of which is good, while others which are bad.Most of the people nowadays are working hard, and some are obliged to work two jobs, sometimes three at the same time. This is due unfortunately to requirements of life nowadays.In the past years, people used to work and live happily and relaxed, even with one job. Nowadays, even with multiple jobs, and more than a person in the family is working, it is becomming insufficient.... continue reading

Dreamstime, learning by the day!

I used to be a below average photographer with many photo's taken in a way the average tourist would take.Full of convidence you start to create an account and look around the site, and learn that there is quite some room for improvement.

Sales stats - the addiction

I know many microstock photographers became addicted to checktheir stats. That is quite easy, being the numbers there at disposal. In the traditional agencies is not so, that's why there is this danger of becoming 'badly' addicted to check earnings in microstock.One thing most people do is comparing month to month earnings. How many times in forums come out the topic of 'bad/good sale this month'?Bad thing to do! Really.You cannot compare month to month, that is simply a measure of 'increase'... continue reading

My hobby is taking over my life!!!

Its been a month since I joined, and I'm already addicted.After submitting a small tester set of 6 of my best images (two rejected) and then jetting off to the egypt for a wonderful vacation, I was really pleasantly surprised to find that I had a sale on not one, but two of my images! That was it! I had to check my page almost everyday to see what the ETR on my images are, my sales and how many views I've had.Unfortunately, nothing has changed between the first two weeks and now except that... continue reading
