Like many togs here who may have alternative income means to support themselves i have been through the ups and downs of " am i wasting my time" scenarios. Remember the main reason many of us take pictures- for the enjoyment of it-simple. I first started taking pictures and video 3 years ago when i was acting in indie short films and B rated movies as supporting artists and secondary characters. I always liked the idea of filming scenes so i bought a canon entry level DSLR, ( though now im nikon).... continue reading

Hi shooters!Finally got my stock pictures accepted by Dreamstime! After a few rejections I finally did it. It's a great motivation to see your photos were accepted.I started shooting a few months ago. Bought old used Nikon D300 with Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 plus I bought Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 which is great and started shooting. Yes you are right, first images were crappy. But it´s great to see that improvement when you shooting everyday with a goal to get on some stock sites. Your vision and technique... continue reading
At the beginning I see that many have to struggle with getting many images accepted. This is because some of us have to get used with the rules of getting images accepted or because you just started with photography. I would like to let you avoid starting with an low acceptance rate. As you know this affects also the search rank.I started with Dreamstime in 2009. I was just into photography so I had a lot to learn. My error was that I started to submit hundreds of photos. The result was a lot... continue reading
Hi all! Today a few words about life in kindergarten:) No child's age is the most important factor in attendance by this extended kindergarten program. What matters most are the child's personality traits and also his relationship with his family, especially with his mother. If you and your child have been inseparable until age 2 or 3 years after case is natural that sudden separation to leave with tears and screams. Knowing your child best, you know if it is able to cope with long hours, and if you... continue reading
