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

New Zealand Trip

Hello Dreamstimers !

First touch with new full frame DSLR Nikon D850

 Dear Dreamstimers,I would like to share my experience with new full frame flaghsip from Nikon, model D850.

As almost everyday user of APS-C format DSLR and occasional user of Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras i was of course curious where full format is heading. I mentioned tough battle between APS-C and Micro Four Thirds in my previous blog about new mirrorless flagship... continue reading

In fact it’s fantastic.Why?First of all, it’... continue reading

Sneaky forest trips

Today is my husband’s birthday. As we are lucky enough to live close to the New Forest, an obvious way to celebrate a summer birthday is to go for lunch at one of the many pleasing hostelries there, followed by a stroll in the sunshine, and finishing up with a cream tea to replace all that lost energy. Or, as was the case today, to do all this in cloudy weather. Regardless of the famous British weather though, the New Forest is a beautiful location for me to drop into from time to time... continue reading
