As all of us know, Dreamstime has a section called UNDISCOVERED IMAGES.Since a long time I can't understand wich criteria is used to cataloge an image as an Undiscovered.I have seen 64 pages of undiscored images and if you sort by downloads (descending), the first one is this:In my opinion one image with 1939 views isn't an undiscovered image.That makes me think that actually undiscovered means unsaleable...Am I wrong?If I'm right... I think Undiscovered images would... continue reading

When I first joined dreamstime I was fascinated by how many backgrounds that were available for downloads.I actually wondered how people used them.Of course after spending hours and hours trying to learn and understand Photoshop and other programs that allow you to isolate photos and put them against any background you want I certainly have a better understanding of how things should work.So here is my first serious try at combining two photos.Two important things I have discovered... continue reading
You know how often we get our images refused because the subjects are very well covered. It appears to be an interesting game to find uncovered ones. Trying various words and phrases you can find some for sure.There's a funny example - "tooth fairy". I searched for it and found lots of fairies (without child's teeth and all that), clowns, dragons(!!!), toothless children... and the clothest one was an image of a tooth with wings.So my tooth fairy comes to be the only one real tooth fairy on... continue reading
Looking for some new fresh photos I found some that inspired me to look at this subject more carefully. Maybe once we all had the bad news “This very well covered subject …” so I search the stock to see my self what new can be shoot in this subject different then I propose.Those that I choose for this blog are not mine but they all perfectly shows what I have on my mind.Flowers yellow daisy took from a low view absolutely lovely contrasted with blue sky, or maybe this retro orange car... continue reading
For all those reading this blog, I will give a little background as to who I am. I am a soldier by trade. I spent 15 months in Iraq, and captured many great photos while I was there. The problem is that I did not think about getting model releases for the shots that I took. Almost all of my shots are of people, both locals as well as soldiers. The few that don't have identifiable faces are posted on this site. The shot below seems to be a favorite of quite a few people. I knew it was a cool shot,... continue reading
I think this photo should be a cover photo candidate of a catering or cooking magazine. It has so many qualities that makes a cover photo.It's eye catching, it's funny and smart, it has great colors, lovely lighting. It is clear and simple, but not too much. It has selective focus. It tells a story. It has copy space for text. It is with portrait orientation. It missed some keywords, but now they are added.I just can imagine it on some magazine's front page.How it comes that it has over 6000... continue reading
