Its Magic! My First Earning from Winning Assigments

It's hard to believe. But the announcement was real. Ranks second for the assignment contest. Very movingIt seems unfair if I do not share this happiness with my friends at DT, at least I can tell a little story behind this victory.Not even one year I joined the DT, and predictable sales are still very quiet. Please note, that when joining DT April last year I only uploaded 4 files and that was only a condition. Then a week later I tried uploading as many as 9 files with the same photo series... continue reading

My first challenge

My name is Victoria, I'm 20 years old and I'm a graphic design student in UBA, Argentina. A year and months ago, my dad bought a restaurant where I had to order all the graphics.First, I had to design the logo. I recommend that when you design a logo is simple and represent as much as possible to what is going to be represented as it is and will be the image of the business in any social network, advertising, etc. and ultimately, the face of the company. You can play with rhetoric but whenever... continue reading

My observations of being in stock photography about a year

A bit less than a year ago I decided to give stock photography a try as I have thousands and thousands photos sitting on my hard drive. Today I hit 1000 uploads and to celebrate that I decided to write a blog post on my observations. Why not, right?During this time I have realized that you have to submit much much more photos than that if you want to have decent sales provided you have started with stock photography recently. I have analysed some users and the ones that have high sales per image are... continue reading

My first experience with macro photography

A couple of years ago somebody showed me some pictures of macro photography. They looked interesting, however, it did not resonate with me. Now, many years later, I read some booksand looked at videos on Youtube. It turns out that macro photography is a lot more than taking pictures of plants and insects and laying on the ground. So, there was a growing interest.After realising that my regular lenses would not suffice, I looked at possible cheap adjustments:- close-up filters are put on a regular... continue reading

My Dreamstime Career. Tips for beginners

I think the passion for photography I got from my dad, who took pictures of us with a black and white camera.When I bought my first PC it came with the fever of editing.I tried different programs, but for me, love at first glance was Adobe Photoshop. I had to learn how to use it and it took me a while, but finally I succeeded.In April 2016 I watched a blog of a famous photographer in Romania. He was explaining people how to make money from edited pictures uploaded on Dreamstime.... continue reading

The journey to my first sale

I still remember when I was starting, it was a hot month of august, I took my camera and went to take as many images as I could.Among those photos was one that I did not find very pleasant to admire, because it seemed very simple, it was a rocky texture of the earth that at first had caught my attention, but over time lost interest.Each photograph that I was uploading achieved a medium success, which motivated me to continue again and again with the taking of new and new photos, improving my technique... continue reading

My Low Keeper Rate - Reasons and Remedies

I’ve noticed that my keeper rate is abysmal, as in 10% or less, abysmal. That’s a bit discouraging, which points to a problem in how I’m taking photos. Why do I end up with so few good shots? (And it is a problem when you spend hours taking photos, and in post-processing, to end up with 19 out of 100 shots.)So why? A few reasons came to mind. Reasons 1. Taking way more shots than I’ll ever keep. I err on the side of more is better, which adds to time in post-process, but I figure... continue reading
