Just got the new Canon M shipped in from Hong Kong (no shipping, tax or duty charges!) and it has no viewfinder. For a lot of people, that is a big omission and it weighed heavily on my mind before I decided to purchase it.I've had compacts before and they are ok but the screens are a little lacking in resolution and the same goes for the photographic output. The M promised to have the small, unobtrusive size of a compact and the power and quality of a DSLR...and, whew, it delivers.I was fairly... continue reading

I did it, signed up to go Exclusive with Dreamstime and got accepted! I had tried another agency and despite having lots of photos accepted I wasn't making any sales. So I did it and immediatley got few bucks for my uploads, and made my first Exclusive sale. Plus I have a couple Level 2 images. Pretty exciting.Now I am working on all the good advice I've been reading in the blogs and putting together collections and trying some new techniques. Next step is to ask for my first payout.Fun times... continue reading
I was very excited yesterday about getting a big sale on my one and only Level 5 image. Yeah! But when I went online today that sale was no longer there and neither is my $9.42 earnings. I can't find any info on here about what may have happened. Anyone? continue reading

Taking up membership of Dreamstime 3 months ago was a challenge but get images accepted has proved to be a steep and valuable learning curve. I found Nikitu's article on innovation particularly helpful as it stressed the need to think along new lines to create interesting images. I wish someone could explain how to get model releases from subjects who are not friends and family. Also it would be helpful to understand from successful photographers how they achieve financial success. Is it by selling... continue reading
Today I just noticed that in the unfinished files area there is no more option to choose from previously used categories.It is still available after you click on an image, but that drop down list only shows the last 10.I always found it easier to select multiple images and to categorize the similars that way.Can we get that feature back?Pretty please?It was a huge time saver... continue reading
OK.First of all some explanation for the heading.I am currently testing the lengths of what my new toy (macro rails) can achieve.While none of the initial tests are stock worthy, i believed it would be of benefit to share my initial findings.Hence the reason these images are being housed on flickr (no point wasting our reviewers' time with test images)Flickr Set LinkCandle Burning 1Candle Burning 2Candle Before The BurnPadlock StackedThermometerThe Candle images are... continue reading
