Hi DT'ersI, like many others have recently been making a significant effort to improve my downloads.There doesn't seem to be an one size fits all answer, but effort in does equal reward out, as with most things in life that are worth doing.A friend and I often plan a morning on a weekend to go to a particular location and get some shots for stock and for pleasure (theres a difference it seems).We typically end up with 10-20 good shots that look great on a website generic nice photos, but... continue reading

I would like to share my joy with you. Today, my portfolio reached 3,000 photos. I set myself some goals on a monthly basis, and these goals are achieved, one by one. It is a nice feeling when you're doing something in order to succeed. I hope that my work will be seen by those who need to see them, and that this my effort and work will get financial justification, also. I started with scarce and basic knowledge of photography, and basic equipment. Now I can praise that I've mastered... continue reading

I started to learn photography in January 2013 with a 3 months intensive school, when I learned the basics, and after the school I kept learning from different tutorials and books, trying out what I learned. Finally, after I changed entry level croppedframe Nikon to full frame Nikon, I started to get pictures I want. It was a constant effort and learning.Now I got the technical side, but still am in a process to understand, what makes pictures attractive and interesting. I know some basic composition... continue reading
Today DT approved my 150th photo!I'm very happy because of that, but even more happy cause I really see the progress in my photos, so my learning and long evening hours with camera alone and in front of computer had paid off. And I want everyone to see the difference! Time between shooting these two photos is JUST ONE MONTH!The first was shot on 4th of April and the second one on 6th of May, this year both. Model is the same, but everything else is different, not just the concept, but the... continue reading

Although I joined Dreamstime in the summer of 2011, it wasn’t until the fall that I became exclusive and started to give it some serious effort.Looking back on my first year with Dreamstime I feel content.I have over 550 images on line with over 200 sales ranging from small RF to Tiff.I don’t know if this is good, bad, or average but I feel I am on the right tracks heading towards the future.Looking forward to my second year, Dreamstime is a very fine place. continue reading
Finally and with lots of effort I hit 400 uploads. Looking back I can say I learnt a lot both on techniques and on the rules of DT and the market. Rate of uploading is still higher than rate of sales and taking into account rate of uploading is low, you understand number of sales is even worse. Anyway this is stimulating for me to make better and better. One day number of sales will overcome number of uploads.Happy sales to all ;-) continue reading
