IfI look back my last 40 days journey as a stock photographer, I had no goal in my mind when i joined DT.My only aim was to upload some good photographs ( Which i think are good) and get some money. After some time i realize it's not easy to make money in Stock Photography as there are better photographers but still lot of hopes are there if you are innovative.Here is what i achieved in last 40 days.- Got first sale- One photo accepted for Assignment and Assignment is still open and still... continue reading

Finally, my 50th image has been accepted today. I joined Dreamstime in the beginning of 2014 and have taken almost a year and a half to reach this landmark. Being a hobbyist photographer means I do not have a dedicated time to shoot photographs, which is partly responsible for this slow progress. I am hoping to reach 100 images in less than half this time.My first accepted image: My 50th image: My most popular images: continue reading
So, I bought my Nikon AF 50 mm F/1.8 for about six or seven months ago and I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am of its performance. It is absolutely incredible and wherever my camera goes, it goes!Reasons?1) Sharpness - The sharpness of a zoom lens is nothing compared to the one of a prime lens. It is wonderful!2) Bokeh - An absolutely stunning bokeh will be at your disposal.3) Price - For about 180 dollars you can get this outstanding lens which is nothing compared to the prices... continue reading
Hello everybody, it's my first post on Dreamstime Blog! I'm writing to share with you my joy about my first "important" upload milestone - 50 images online!I know that it may not seem important as there are a lot of portfolios on Dreamstime with 1000 and more images, but if you are a stock beginner as me or if you remember your excitement about first approved images, you will understand me! I've been uploading since November, 2014 and had my moments of inspiration and enthusiasm and sometimes of... continue reading
Hey people,just wanted to share this milestone. The pic on the left is my 50th approved upload! That means I can now compete in the monthly assignments! I guess where all moving forward step by step in this is just a small step in my development.The pic itself is not so special. I got a bit bummed out when they rejected a photo of broken glass earlier, so I made it a mission to get some good shots of a broken window. And here they are!If you have the time, please check out my portfolio... continue reading
I finally got my 50th image approved here on Dreamstime last night! Now I get to participate in the Assignments, which I am excited about, for a multitude of reasons: It gives my portfolio more exposure, it gets me out of my "comfort zone" of shooting, and it gives me something to focus my efforts on. Here is the image that put me into the 50 Zone: continue reading
My grandfather usually told me "No pain, no gain"....how he was right. With the following image I hit fifty sales:....but what an effort! More or less one year ago I joined DT and only now I can celebrate my first 50 sales. Not a great result taking into account time I spent to take care my portfolio but I am sure things will turn towards better. Day by day I became more skilled and my portfolio is always more interesting and visible.Happy week to all continue reading

Since my first sale I have passed two more milestomes I set myself; 50 images in my portfolio and five sales. I am now on 56 images with more pending and have hit 6 sales.I know there is still a long long way to go but progress is progress. I also made the decision to become exclusive here and that got approved today so I guess another milestone is met.I guess the next milestones go something like 100 uploads, 20 sales and my first level two image. Although if the sales keep increasing then... continue reading
