From the archive

I often make collages from my old photos. Sometimes i assemble giant patterns from hundreds of different images.

Only after a while it is possible to realize what should be done for the shoot to look perfect. continue reading

How I keep my digital files organized

I think this is a good subject to blog about. Capturing a photo these days is very cheap, all it takes is to press the button and a new photo is born.

Our Heritage in Photos

Now that I am in my 50s, I have years and years of photos and negatives in chronological order.If I ever want to find a particular photo, I can easily go back and find it.I mention this because it has LONG been a source of sadness to me when I go into an antique store and find scores of beautiful old photographs that obviously cost someone some money back in their years and the family (descendants) do not know where or who their ancestors were.I sometimes purchase these old photos to use as... continue reading

Finally broke 200 uploads!!!

It definitely took me much longer than most users here but I finally broke 200 uploads.I'm pretty happy with this achievement and it's definitely encouraging me to upload more.When I started with Dreamstime over 1 year ago, I was mainly looking through photos that I have photographed in the past and uploading them.It was a long and tedious task of filtering through thousands and thousands of photos.Many of which were not really microstock content.However it was enjoyable looking back at... continue reading
