Installation style artic with steel

As a Chinese whose hometown is the countryside,it is difficult for me to love the heavy industry.In my memory,all of the heavy industry is composed by high funnel with heavy smoking,the small space is fullfilled with noise, the black waste water flowing to the river which floating the animal's body...Maybe this memory is coming from the book which describe the disaster effect of the industry society.Comparing the agriculture society which being fullfilled with farm, forest, clean river and farmer,... continue reading

  Hello everyone, its my first blog so excuse me if i ramble.Its Saturday morning here, and i am reading some great blogs about sales and number of uploads, and i start to think i am out of my depth.You see i am only on 45 uploads, no sales and keep letting myself down with silly mistakes on refused files (although i am more brutal with my own selections now).And then i just take a look at my profile, and i smile. Thats mine i created that, WOW. They may not be the best but i see how far... continue reading

Photography Inspires Me

 For me photography is about capturing memories;maybe family occasions, special places, stunning colours, shapes, dew drops on leaves, sunsets, sunrises, old buildings or just the unusual. Every photograph or image is a memory of some sort; whether it captures a special moment in time, a pattern or shape or stunning colour, even a feeling.My preferences are animals and nature but I always prefer a natural look whatever the image. I do dabble with editing sometimes, but a forced or mega... continue reading

Two Year Anniversary with Dreamstime

As my 2 years with Dreamstime approaches I have learned quite a lot, especially from members blogs. I have enjoyed seeing my photographs accepted and have been even more excited with my sales. I doubt I will get rich here but that is not important.I have recently been dabbling in illustrations, I have a lot to learn here; however it's even more exciting to get an illustration accepted as the whole concept is mine from start to finish. Where as a lovely landscape just needs to be captured, I haven'... continue reading

Trying something new

While most of my uploads here on Dreamstime have been people or product shots,I recently decided to try something quite out of my comfort zone. While there are a number of tributes to 9-11 on this site, I decided to see if I could take something very simple and make a concept shot to remember this terrible time in our history. I found a box of staples in my desk drawer and the light bulb went on! I also thought that perhaps I could try something a little different with the few lights that I have.... continue reading

Looking at other portfolios

I think that I will stop looking through others portfolios, seeing the most popular images, the newest images.I worry too much that I might accidently copycat someone else.I love to see everyone else's designs and yet I am concerned that it will inspire me and that inspiration may be too close to the original, or a few days from now I will design something that is a vague recollection of something I have seen by someone else.I have a varied portfolio as you... continue reading
