And sometimes we use images that catch people’s attention, distracting them from our initial purpose. How can you avoid distraction?

I show my clients how to move from a “Weight loss is hard and I can’t do it” mindset to one that says “I easily and enjoyable return to my natural, ideal weight”! Making this the default mindset results in sustainable behaviour change and finally the desired external transformation.The... continue reading
I just came back from one of my favorite shooting spots for flowers and critters, Flamingo Gardens I went to shoot some video of two of the waterfalls on the property and get some more shots of the various critters that roam the gardens. I hadn't been there in 4 months or so.Imagine my disappointment when I went inside only to find that the lush vegetation had completely overgrown the falls. You could hear them, but you couldn't see them, so, no video.I did the same thing to myself on a recent... continue reading
Tonight I read a wonderful quote from Bai YanSong, a famous TV host in China's CCTV: Who is not afraid lose, is the people will be possible to win. For me, I think it's suited to upload image to Dreamstime, too.For me, It's long time from I uploaded image to DT, why? I don't think it's a sufficient reason, I have been busy for a long time. The larget problem is I‘m afraid of lose.I'm afraid of refuse and refuse again! So after I had uploaded more than 220 pics , I didn't upload one... continue reading
It's been a while since I wrote a blog, but due to the hundreds of you clamoring for another one, I decided it was time.Well, okay it wasn’t hundreds of you. Okay it was my mom.What inspired my irritation this time was that I was bored so I played a few rounds of Stock Rank. Well if you must know, I played in order to make sure none of my images was in the “No Sales” category. And all I accomplished was lowering my score, which is displayed publicly for all to see and ridicule.Time... continue reading

...and today it happened... the thing we afraid most in the digital age - when ones become zeros. In other words - losing data on your hard drive.What happened: i just uninstalled a small program that changed my desktop wallpapers automatically. A bit later when accessing my photos catalog that contained more than 6 month photos (jpg-s and not yet processed raw files) i discovered that all folders were totally empty. Well.. not only the photos catalog, THE WHOLE PARTITION OF THE DRIVE was erased,... continue reading
The camera bag has been lost for nearly 20 days.The sad mood used to come and confuse my common living rhythm once I do some photography as usual. Apparently, photography has become my most important hobby and deeply affected my daily life. In fact, I immerse in photography only several years by chance. The web page of Dreamstime gave me the chance. I have been contributing my pictures to it as well as learning knowledge about it from others.Nikor 70-200mm, the lost lens, was my favorite... continue reading
People wish to keep their photos and their records for lifetime or even generations, yet many appear unconcerned about the fact that in a few years' time current devices and on-line services may no longer be in use, and even the file formats might not be supported.Old fashioned printed books and documents are still the best.Fortunately they are much easier to produce now..Our SurvwyIncartek has conducted a survey on behalf of OPUS albums and found out that:41% of responders say their... continue reading
