I usually shoot all my pictures on "A", which stands for Aperture. I like to control my lens opening for depth of field as well as sharpness. I don't have the best lenses so I try to stop down at least one stop if not two.1/3 of the way through my trip, my camera would not work on "A"! So, I switched to AUTO to see if that worked. It did! So, for the rest of my trip I shot everything on AUTO.After looking at all my pictures, I've come to the conclusion that AUTO was not really an inconvenience... continue reading
Search results for "satisfaction"
Dear DT community, I haven't been active on the site for almost 2 years now, because I've made a decision to refocus my photographic ambitions and interests following a more theatrical/artistic style.I've got no regrets doing that, however, it seems to me that I've reached something of a rut in my path. The problem arises with a feeling I have that each new project I start it doesn't end up pushing me towards something new or better. I don't get the feeling that I improve myself or my images... continue reading
A couple of days ago the picture below was sold. By now it has been sold 5 times. So, I started to wonder "who is interested in a picture like that?".As a contributor we know very little about the buyers (only via sales). At the same time the whole collection of searches done by buyers contains a lot of relevant information. There exist data mining algorithms that reveal that kind of information. It would be nice if contributors would know about this. It would create a win-... continue reading

Why? Because at the end of your journey there is priceless reward waiting for you! Satisfaction!Below picture was rejected... continue reading
Hello DTI've joined July 25, 2014 that's where my photography adventure starts :) I had no experience before that time. After a month I've set my first goal to increase acceptance ratio as it was only 33%.It motivated me to learn more about photography and quality of my pictures. I now have reached first small milestone of 50 online pictures and improved my acceptance ratio to 55% :) This progress motivated me even more so I've decided to set new challenges! Next targets... continue reading
Have you ever thought, are you a professional photostock photographer? Have you ever thought, who are all those guys who are earning lots of money this way?I did. And I have answers. They are relevant for me only but you can try them if they match you. Or you can find your own answers.So, I'm not a professional photostocker. I love taking photos for about 25 years yet. I really LOVE it. I love the process of taking photos, processing photos for publishing, for web or just for home archive.... continue reading

Moreover, any querries put on dreamstime, they are all responded to as quickly as possible to entire satisfaction of the contributors.... continue reading
Just want to share with you..My satisfaction is different now!At first, I was very happy and satisfy when my sales increasing ..But now, I will be more happy if my uploads increasing..Meaning, I will be more satisfied if an image(especially assignment file) is accepted, compared with having a sale.Oppositely, I will be more depressed if my satisfied photo/image is rejected, compared with no sales.Anyone has the same feeling as mine..?Now, the difficult task is to increase my... continue reading
