100 Photos uploaded

I know it's a small achievement compared to a lot of others but for a relative beginner, it's another milestone reached and I'm pleased to have got there. It doesn't match the satisfaction of having the first photo accepted but is a lot better than the first photo rejected and it's probably a little below making the first sale but that's something for the future.Six months ago, when I submitted the first photos, I didn't really think about making it to 100 or... continue reading

Back with new stuff again...

After a long time away from DT, due to the loss of my whole camera setup, I decided to buy another one and keep on posting for my Exclusivity contribution to this database, improving the quality of my shots and the times of shooting sessions.And so I also decided to ask for a serious critique on what is good or not for this platform (i.e. what could sell better in my portfolio, what I should leave out of it and what can wait).Comments and critiques are very seriously welcome here, to... continue reading

There are two more pending in the queue.        The assignment is the positive adrenaline keep me awake and curious of making new picture every day. My mind... continue reading

Accepted photos on Crowds assignment - an improvement?

I haven't uploaded a lot since last time I wrote a blog article 2015, but I had a nice surprise having 6 photos accepted for "Crowds" assignment. Last time I sent photos for an assignment, all 10 were refused. After that, I uploaded them normally and they were accepted, so it is possible they were good, but not excellent. I feel it is an improvement from the point of view of the acceptance rate for an assignment.The accepted ones from this assignment are below.What is your opinion about this?... continue reading

Improving Photography Skills Through Dreamstime

This is my first foray into writing a blog for Dreamstime....I've been a contributor to Dreamstime for some time, starting back when there were less than 1 million images online (seems like ages ago!).At the time, I had discovered the Dreamstime site while looking for inexpensive, quality stock images, thenlater decided to try my hand at contributing a few myself.  At first, I submitted a few vacation photographs, captured with a little "point and shoot&... continue reading

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

How my dog photography has grown in quality with Dreamstime

Hi everyone, since I am a Dreamstimer I submitted a lot of my dog photography with tips on how to take decent shots on non cooperative models such as dogs... and I have to say, each refusal note was teaching me to perform better shots me too... This was one of my first, but on adult dogs it's easier: they're teached to stay and more collaborative. With puppies it's a real nightmare! If they stay, then you have a lie-down image that is not more different from a million similar ones,... continue reading

Step forward

Hello everyone,After a short abstinence, during which I studied the possibilities of my equipment and learned about stock photography, I decided to make some changes and try again with a different approach. I started to turn around and look for details that in normal circumstances I wouldn't have noticed. I try to recognize the scattered elements with certain potential and put them together into the system attractive for photography. I hope to move forward in this direction and that my efforts would... continue reading
