Its Magic! My First Earning from Winning Assigments

It's hard to believe. But the announcement was real. Ranks second for the assignment contest. Very movingIt seems unfair if I do not share this happiness with my friends at DT, at least I can tell a little story behind this victory.Not even one year I joined the DT, and predictable sales are still very quiet. Please note, that when joining DT April last year I only uploaded 4 files and that was only a condition. Then a week later I tried uploading as many as 9 files with the same photo series... continue reading

My first challenge

My name is Victoria, I'm 20 years old and I'm a graphic design student in UBA, Argentina. A year and months ago, my dad bought a restaurant where I had to order all the graphics.First, I had to design the logo. I recommend that when you design a logo is simple and represent as much as possible to what is going to be represented as it is and will be the image of the business in any social network, advertising, etc. and ultimately, the face of the company. You can play with rhetoric but whenever... continue reading

My first experience with macro photography

A couple of years ago somebody showed me some pictures of macro photography. They looked interesting, however, it did not resonate with me. Now, many years later, I read some booksand looked at videos on Youtube. It turns out that macro photography is a lot more than taking pictures of plants and insects and laying on the ground. So, there was a growing interest.After realising that my regular lenses would not suffice, I looked at possible cheap adjustments:- close-up filters are put on a regular... continue reading

The journey to my first sale

I still remember when I was starting, it was a hot month of august, I took my camera and went to take as many images as I could.Among those photos was one that I did not find very pleasant to admire, because it seemed very simple, it was a rocky texture of the earth that at first had caught my attention, but over time lost interest.Each photograph that I was uploading achieved a medium success, which motivated me to continue again and again with the taking of new and new photos, improving my technique... continue reading

Photography - the first contact

From all the uses that my photography has for me, the first useful contact came to me in the form of scientific support. It seems like only yesterday when the professor of anatomy first showed us the human body. It was like discovering a new universe: so many bones, so many muscles, so many blood vessels, so many nerves, so many organs.Imagine that you need to explain to a 10-year-old child the human body without the help of a picture. Pretty tough, huh? Then try with the component of a cell.Then... 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, what has happened in the year? I joined with no illusions of making lots of money but when the first sale came, it was such a great feeling. I've achieved some... continue reading

First Photo approved. YEAH

Got an email from DT today with my first photo apporoved. Gave me a little thrill, but, not allowing myself to get too carried away. After all, it was just a photo of some rocks.I actually had to go to Scotland from Australia to take that photo.And it was around 40 years ago that I was at the same place, (Findhorn Bay), where I first saw the stony beach around a bay that empties at low tide.Naturally, the buyer, if there ever is one, doesnt know that, nor the memories and emotions that go with... continue reading

First touch with new full frame DSLR Nikon D850

 Dear Dreamstimers,I would like to share my experience with new full frame flaghsip from Nikon, model D850. To be honest, full frame isn't my "weapon of choice" due to its price level, weight and size - and it counts lenses also. As almost everyday user of APS-C format DSLR and occasional user of Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras i was of course curious where full format is heading. I mentioned tough battle between APS-C and Micro Four Thirds in my previous blog about new mirrorless flagship... continue reading

The Story Behind My First Sold Photo

Hello everybody,I want to tell the story behind my first sold photo recently.   (my first sold photo)It was a sunny summer day, weeks after spring ends. I with my family visited to a gardener that hiding in the trees of city, for get some flowers and little grape tree. The garden is not too visible because trees covers the garden, but the garden is just on the center of big city. Not all people around knows the gardener are here, they might guess there as a little park.   The... continue reading

Product photography: my first experience

    As you can see, I have some experience with photoshoots with models, so I thought that product photography was easy.Last week my daughter asked me to take some pictures of crocheting she makes and sells via her Etsy webshop, DC crochet Design. She was facing some shortcomings of smartphones to do product photography. So, yesterday I grabbed my equipment and turned one of our bedrooms into a small photo studio. I have done something similar before so the first steps were easy.-... continue reading
