What do you do on a totally overcast morning with light rain? Put a rain cover on your camera and go out anyway! The humid days bring stormy nights here in the southeastern United States. The rainfall from last evening has held on through the night into this morning. But I’ve made a personal challenge to go birding and shooting (photographs) every day throughout the month. So what do I do facing the light rain? Get out there anyway! I haven’t spent the money on a commercial rain cover... continue reading

I like to write romance novels and Dreamstime is the perfect location for me to look for potential book covers because I’m looking to publish independently. There are so many images that have potential for me that it took me six hours to choose the one I want to use for my first cover.But for me, what would a perfection location be for this type of photo? Personally, I would choose a small country town, with quaint old buildings and maybe one traffic light. A place where traffic isn’t an issue... continue reading
I always dreamed someday I would be on the cover of National Geographic. So when I saw my favorite magazine promote an online tool to create a “mock” magazine using my very own image – I knew I would finally be able to realize that dream.And while it may only be a spoof magazine cover, it sure gave me a thrill to see it, and I pranked quite a few of my friends with it as well! I wanted to be able to share that feeling with others, so if NatGeo is your dream publication as well, try their free... continue reading

Books from the same genre usually have a similar style of cover. As cover style is a major factor shoppers use... continue reading
The cover of this book has a special history.Without going into details, this photo was not purchased through Dreamtime or via another microstock agency. It was donated to the author of the book graciously to illustrate the book. As there is a hierarchical relationship between the author and subject myself, there was no question of negotiating anything else. On the other side, I was quite proud that he thought about my photos for his book. So I suggested him a series of photos of the Peace Palace... continue reading
