Where and how to find good honest critique for your work?

Dear DT community, I haven't been active on the site for almost 2 years now, because I've made a decision to refocus my photographic ambitions and interests following a more theatrical/artistic style.I've got no regrets doing that, however, it seems to me that I've reached something of a rut in my path. The problem arises with a feeling I have that each new project I start it doesn't end up pushing me towards something new or better. I don't get the feeling that I improve myself or my images... continue reading

First download!

 After four months since my first submission I finally got my first download! I'm just starting out but I've enjoyed the feedback from Dreamstime and it has helped improve the pictures that I'm taking now. I've learned to try various angles and compositions and I'm just beginning to experiment with lighting. I haven't made much money yet but it's exciting to sell my first photo. continue reading

Newbie Alert!

I've been taking pics all my life but didn't start getting serious about it until my first child was born in 1995. A year later I started a small bakery business specializing in cookie bouquets. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot staging my cookies for pictures for my brochures.Speed forward to today, and while I am no where near a pro, I do have a few non-profit organizations that I take pictures for. Mostly, I cover events for organizations' web sites, social media and newsletters.My... continue reading

Six More Up, Six Down!

I opened my iPad this morning to find that I had six more photos approved! Looking further, I realized that six were also refused.The refusals don't bother me, because I really appreciated the feedback. I didn't really expect to get as much helpful advice from the refused files!So, all in all, I'm thrilled!This is one of the approved photos:  It was not cropped the way I'd like, but I can't get my iPad to behave and set it right! continue reading

Giving & Receiving Comments

Isn't it a great feeling when someone takes the time to write a helpful, supportive or event positive yet critical comment on an image you've taken? Not only does it generate a nice warm feeling that someone has taken the time to comment but also provides useful feedback to the photographer.Although I haven't received too many comments on images I know how great it can be when I do get it and will undertake to post a comment on 3 or more images every week in an effort to spread a little cheer... continue reading
