We’ve all been there- you’re going on a big trip to an exciting destination and you want to make sure you come back with some amazing photographs to document your trip and the locations you visited.However, despite your best intentions (and ambitions!), the reality is that 1) you’re going to a relatively unfamiliar place, and 2) your time and photo opportunities there are limited due to the length of your stay. As a result, yourphotography subjects and range of environments will be limited... continue reading

Hi Dreamstimers, here I am again. Although I have never experienced food photography, that's a thing a feel attracted from.All begun when a friend of mine started his business in growing plants and selling his own products as typical here nearby. He is a passionate photographer and told me: that's a good way to attract buyers and clients, to have a decent picture illustrating what you produce and sell. Here I am using some of your pictures, that I find very near to my concept.I started... continue reading
Finding someone to critique your work well is sometimes even harder than creating the work in the first place. If you’re like most people, you can’t rely on friends and family for unbiased critiques. They care for you, and therefore believe that everything you create is wonderful. If you have photographer friends, they may be too polite to say anything harsh or to really pick your images apart.That means that if you want real, honest and useful feedback on your work, you need to do... continue reading
Hi, guys.I joined Dreamstime from 2010. I can not say i made a fortune. Only $ 1.711.That is about $28,5/month. Hm... you can not feed your family from that money. But, yes, the fault is mine - my portfolio is a small one and i had months with no uploads. So, Dreamstime is not guilty. Anyway, i kept doing it for my pleasure. My wife is pregnant with the second child, so i understood, in a few months i will be the one feeding my family. I am a designer and photography is not my first income source,... continue reading
Just think about this, you have a subject selected, but now, how do you make this picture as amazing as it can get? Well, you need to start off by knowing what makes up a good photo. When someone is looking to buy a photograph they look for key elements of composition, patterns in the photo, such as bricks, lines, such as buildings, shapes like public art, grass, and graffiti.They also look for colors, but be careful with colors because colors can mean white or black, not only the colors in the... continue reading
Have you ever tried publishing your own photography in a book? I have. The traditional way is to submit a proposal to a publisher and hope there will be an interest for your work. That was a door slammed in my face. Brick and mortar publishers want material that will appeal to the masses while having low printing costs. Photography is very subjective and usually targets small audiences. In addition, publishing physical books with enough quality to do justice for images is expensive.Most of you... continue reading

This image was taken in my backyard.While normally the background would have been green and brown.I have a black cloth that I keep with my camera gear to set the image in the foreground and cause it to pop off of the background.In this case the black really made the subject pop.If it was taken off of the natural greens and browns it would have been a mediocre image.You can go to Walmart and purchase some fabric (i.e. black, white or a color of your choosing) that can yield dramatically... continue reading
