Wow, where does the time go? It was May 5, 2009 when I joined Dreamstime. It was October of 2010 when I last updated my sales. At that time, I had 4653 images with 8500 sales, which I think was pretty good for the first 18 months here at DT.Fast-forward 2 1/2 more years and here we are. I now have 6270 images online with 21712 sales.I've only added 1617 new images these past 30 months, so it's obvious that I have not been drawing as much as I used to.My other client work has taken me away... continue reading

In May of 2011 I bought my first camera! I was so excited to start shooting photos so I could upload them on DreamsTime. DreamsTime is my favorite micro stock agency that I'd been using to purchase photos for projects at the ad agency I work at.

So everything I uploaded at the beginning was soundly rejected! What do I do now! Well,... continue reading

Hi all! I would like to share with the whole community of Dreamstime, the knowledge that I acquired in Photoshop, like most of you know is a very complex image editing software. I state that everything I have learned is based on articles and tutorials, readily available on the internet, so I have no claim to teach anything to anyone, but I just want to illustrate my method of working, right or wrong. In this little blog I will talk about sharpness, a fundamental parameter and important for all images.... continue reading

The lowly Isolated Tomato catches a lot of flak around here.Why not celebrate it's dullness and unoriginality?Post yours and the story behind it!Here's mine:I threw it up on my portfolio almost as a joke after reading all the "white isolated girl cutting tomato while on laptop in business meeting in zen rock garden" posts, but the sucker ended up in a Korean healthy cooking book, so I can't complain. continue reading
