Portraits can be very diverse, from traditional mugshots to low key black-and-whites, moody blurs, dramatic multi speedlights scenes, you name it. Camera settings can be varied too, so let’s take a closer look at a traditional portrait, one that could serve as your social media image or could be found in a graduates book and see which settings work best.Basic settings:First, we will focus on model’s eyes. We’ll always want some softness to emphasize the eyes even more, so let’s set Aperture... continue reading

Hi FriendsI have just started my work with dreamstime. I am crazy for photography experience. Dreamstime helped myself becoming my dreams true.I took the first shot of a flower on a roadside greenbelt. That photo was accepted. After that i was so excited to make more pictures.I planned to go in a nearby housing scheme garden. I spent three hours there and took plenty of photos. Photos of flowers, sunset, lake, bridge etc. I took photos from different angles and different settings of... continue reading
What is especially neat about shooting this photo, is that deer are quite prevalent all over the UCSC campus. I enjoyed having a wonderful opportunity to visit my husband's Alma Mater, and took a generous amount of photos of the campus and of any wildlife that were present.This deer in particular, let me get especially close to her and, having not been on the UC Santa Cruz campus in ages, it was a delight for me to make great use of photo opportunities of wildlife amongst students walking around.... continue reading
It's important,even in your older years, to set goals and to work to achieve them. It may seems frivolous, (not having any purpose or value) to say that you want to sell 100 photos in your first year at Dreamstime or that you want to have your photo chosen for an assignment this month, but really it's the substance of life; the idea of feeling important, valuable or significant.Even tiny goals add to your happiness.When I began selling photos on DT I was quite an amateur, but I really loved... continue reading
Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every criticism and use it to learn. Well all of the hard work paid off and now I can take a look back and walk tall. Now that I have reach the 100 goal, it is time for me to set the next one. To reach 250 by year end, and should I... continue reading

Hi Folks,I joined DT about 4 months ago. I got the DP virus about 10 years ago but went to DSLR very recently ... and I'm addicted now.Thanks to hard work and learning basic skills I managed to become an exclusive photographer.My next goal is to get 100 pictures online and at least 1 in level 2...we'll see :)NB : I think that as an exclusive photographer, in order to bring more people in, DT should give 2/3 free credits to the people we refer, to make them enroll and make a... continue reading
I think it is a given that setting goals is a good idea and helps to achieve success.By setting intermediate goals you keep yourself going in the short term, while building towards the long terms goals as well.I'm happy to report that setting my own uploading goals has kept me going - and expanding my portfolio.With 1 sale short of 2000 sales and house renovations ahead of me I've set myself a goal of getting 50 shots online out of my renos.I'm off to a good start!On a side note... continue reading
Underexposure or overexposure?It all depends the purpose of the pictures. If you just want to have some photos from your holiday or from a party with some friends, one tends to shoot in JPEG i.s.o. RAW. In many cases you would select a (semi-)auto setting. And typically you want to give it some extra EV push for snowy conditions and some less EV for taking a picture of your black cat in a dark brown sofa. Just for the reason not to end up with a grey cat in a grey sofa as the camera tends to level... continue reading
