My Photography Story

I have owned a camera since my teenage years. I got my first part-time job at 13 years old and took my first paycheck to a pawn shop and bought a Canon AE-1 (this was 33 years ago). Since then, I have had a camera in my hands. I took it to school, concerts, everywhere I went. Sadly, I don't have any of those photos any more.As an adult, I dabbled in photography. Travel and vacation photos, food, flowers, etc... All in 35mm and had a hard drive filled with scans of the negatives. That died too.... continue reading

Starting Out by Dipping My Toe in the Water... Literally

I'm just starting out. I've made exactly $4.47 from selling stock photography so far. Alas, none of that is on Dreamstime. Apparently the search algorithms on other sites are more favorable to me than this one. I'm not quitting my day job.I started out by simply uploading my best photos. I didn't take those photos for stock photography. I took them as a hobby. My hobby is hiking in the mountains, mostly in California, and finding and identifying wildflowers. I don't think it will shock anyone... continue reading

3d Manipulation, edit pictures and more

Good day Dt. Today I want to talk to you about a subject we all hit. Editing photos after I downloaded them in PC / Laptop. From the age of 14 I have heard of the renowned Photoshop program.

The Jabbering of a Newbie, Pt 2

 In my last post, I told the community about how I was new to DT, but not new to the stock photography business. then I commenced telling of all the things I have learned to do, & what not to do. Well, an update on that. I logged in today to look at my portfolio to see which photos were being viewed the most.The ironic thing is, the photo that I posted in my last blog showing that I had not learned enough about lighting, the "Deserted Barn" photo, which I have posted in this blog, it is... continue reading
