Imagining Business as a Newbie

I often see newbies asking questions on the message boards about what types of images are needed in this highly competitive business. To understand what end users are looking for, I recommend looking at the way dreamstime classifies images into categories and sub-categories.This is the their way of telling you what is being searched for by their users.Take the Business category, one of the most popular categories for stock images, as an example.You'll see the sub-categories break down as follows.... continue reading

BRUTAL Industry

This is what is left from the past for our generation. This is what we live. That is what we breathe. What remains in memory only some - but standing in front of the eyes of many people. It traces catastrophe that continues ...  Cities that have become a symbol of danger. The mechanisms that are designed to make life easier - but in fact destroy it. Waste that can not cope with those who created them ... Every day we look at these deadly ikebana, and every day we ask someone to blame for... continue reading

Using your imagination to produce original ideas is therefore an important part in your stock career.Sure, it's easy to say "use your imagination and be original."

What's the future of microstock industry? Where is microstock going?

I would really appreciate your opinions on this matter, fellow dreamstimers (contributors, photogs, illustrators or admins). I have some thinkings that I can't get out of my head...Stock photography began around 2004, when the first digital cameras were becoming very popular, I read once the Dreamstime history: it began being a traditional photography agency and started as stock in 2004 I think.

Tips On Infrared Photography

Shooting infrared with digital is much different from my early black & white/darkroom days. But, in some respects is somewhat similar, because you still have a thick filter to shoot through. So a tripod is an absolute necessity if you want good, quality (noise free) images. Plants and trees are the most striking components while using infrared.
