I photographed mostly my family, also nature, animals, I really www.dreamstime.com liked the macro, well, in general, everything interesting around. I began to look for information on the Internet on the topic of earning on the sale of photographs. I realized that the photos that I have can even be sold... continue reading

My First Upload

Photography has always been a hobby. But old technology meant expense of films, processing and printing which made this hobby very expensive. But today with the new cameras, I could go back to my hobby with a vengeance.I have been clicking photos at the various places I visit and now have a huge collection.

Why stock photography is not a hobby

Okay, so it's been a while since my last post and, if you recall, my last DT blog was fairly negative in calling out people who do not pay for using stock images.
