Earn more money with God's Perspective

People always like photos with special angle. Certainly bird's-eye view is a very unique angle since only God has that perspective :-)1. Don't hesitate to buy a ticket to go up high. In many places, there are some top or high buildings that you could have the bird's view; but you have to buy a ticket to enter it and sometimes it is expensive. If you truly want to take some special photos you should pay for it, and it is worthy, the return will be good. I once visited Las Vegas,... continue reading

One year report. (Thoughts on the first 12 months with Dreamstime)

My first year on Dreamstime as a new photogrpaher and and I've realised just how quickly the time passes! I was a novice photographer when I joined and I think, to be fair, I'm still in that category, although I'd like to think that the photos have improved in this time.First approved photo.So that's a year, compressed into less than one minute of reading. For me, I enjoy photography very much and I wish I'd found it a lot sooner but there'... continue reading

1000 Uploads: Reflection on Joining the Dreamstime Community

 What, at the time, seemed like every single day, my 8th Grade teacher would ask, "What did John Dewey say?”And we’d all reply, in unison, “You learn what you do!”Well, today I congratulate myself on 1000 uploads. I know. I know I said uploads and not sales but still, it’s a victory... at least to me. My acceptance ratio dipped pretty low at one point, but I’d like to think that as my acceptance ratio improves so does my photography.However, I still have images get... continue reading

I have enjoyed taking photo's over the last 11 months I've actively been uploading to Dreamstime and trying to improve my abilities whilst trying to add some inventiveness to some images. If you look through other site members portfolio's there are some fantastic photographs and also great inventiveness with illustrations etc.Taking photographs is enjoyable, disappointing when an image is technically not great but worth the time when an image... continue reading

Becoming exclusive

Well, the e-mail arrived yesterday, confirming I am now a photographer, workingexclusively with Dreamstime but how did I get to ths stage? I had 85 photos in my portfolio and was pleased with the submissions process. I'd had a few photos refused but, although disappointing, the advice on how to rectify the problems was extremely useful, which also impressed me.It has made me think more about composition of photographs, to take that bit of extra care when taking the picture and definitely made... continue reading

Learning with every image accepted and rejected

I like how they let you know when an image is rejected what problems they had with the photo. I am learning so much. I have read other blogs and I am totally looking and everything differently.
