It has been little more than 8 years in Dreamstime now... With 157 Photographs and 77 Sale I am inching close to 100 Dollars mark which would be my first pay out.The journey was not without disappointment. It has been a roller coaster ride starting with the initial Happy phase and then the sad ones when lots of my photographs got rejected and then came the phase with first sale and subsequent acceptance of few more photographs.I am waiting anxiously when someone would buy a couple more of... continue reading

A short while ago my balance went over the magic $100 for the first time and I was able to request a payout. I put the money towards a lens I have been wanting for some time, a Sigma 10-20mm zoom.This is the first image from that lens to be accepted on Dreamstime.Not content with just the one purchase I yesterday ordered a Nikon DX 40mm micro. That arrived this morning - I have not even opened the box yet. I bought that for the macro facility, and also for the lightness and image quality... continue reading
My story for other newbies like me.I started out wondering... Could I actually sell stock photos? What photos are considered stock? What photos should I submit? Can I really make some extra cash doing this online?I decided I would give it a try and just upload a few older photos I had taken a while back and see what happens.As I did that and waited for my first approvals or rejections, I decided to do some research to see what is selling and what isn't.I wanted to see what others... continue reading
This is good news for the newbies who are trying to get paid for a hobby. I haven't really been putting in any efforts at conceptual stock photos and portraits, which are supposed to sell best.

Yesterday I had to cut my nails very short... as I am nervously biting them last days... The reason is simple - I am 17 cents short to pick my first payout on DT.The balance stopped moving two weeks ago and refuses to rise - and nothing helps - I already started to talk to that number - asking it to go up, commanding, begging, hypnotizing and using psi-forces to push it beyond payout limit... but with no success...It really can drive one crazy, when reward is within reach of hand and yet... continue reading
