Stay Frosty

Images of refreshing beverages, both alcoholic and otherwise are used for purposes as diverse as major ads and invitations to small parties. The virtues of drinking eight glasses of water daily may have come under scrutiny recently but no one argues with the importance of water and other healthy liquids in a sane diet. Images of fit individuals taking in a daily allotment of fluids are used in promotions for dietary supplements, health clubs, juices and bottled water as well as for editorial pieces... continue reading

Stuff Happens

What does leaving my wallet at the bookstore yesterday, a flashing warning light on the car dashboard as I pulled out to drive back to the bookstore and an error in posting a payment to a bill have to do with stock photography?Typical everyday annoyances and frustrations make for great concept shots for editorial uses dealing with stress related issues and to illustrate products and services that supply solutions to common business problems.Many of the ideas on the shot list below will have... continue reading

Mushroom picking in Finland

Many of us love to pick our own food. Some of us even grow it. I moved to Finland recently and one of the country's rule made me very happy: One can pick whatever berry or edible mushroom from any forest they wish. They call this “Every man’s right” and it means that one can walk freely in the forest (no matter who owns it).I love walking in the forest. I love the sound of the wind, the trees voices howling, the rays of sun passing through the trees, coloring everything in gold. Therefore... continue reading

I don't know about you, but photography is something that gives me real pleasure. It's nearly always on my mind: planning the next project; scoping out new places to shoot; reading as much as I can about new techniques; appreciating other photographers' work; checking out the window to assess the light; scouring a well known auction site to look for my next longed-for piece of equipment. But, as is true for many of us, the "day job" can be a major obstacle to growing my photography portfolio.... continue reading

What I talk about when I talk about tea

Is Chinese tea your cup of tea? If so, what is your favourite Chinese tea?  Is it white tea - the one that comprises those pale budding leaves of the tea plant that have not been fermented?  Is it green tea - the much lauded tea that is said to be very beneficial to your health and wellness?  Is it oolong tea (aka wulong tea) - the fragrant partially fermented tea that intoxicates and energises you with every sip?  Or is it black tea - the fully fermented tea that... continue reading

Assignment joy

I have been on Dreamstime for about 9 months now and have learned a lot about stock photography. I love being part of a photographic community and I am working toward becoming an exclusive contributor. This week my work achieved one of my highest goals to date (besides sales).I submitted 3 images for the home improvement assignment and all were refused. Close...but not interesting enough. Sigh. I marinated for a few days thinking I would NEVER get it right. (I submitted to the last assignment... continue reading
