I have recently achieved the 1000 image milestone on Dreamstime, which seemed a long way away when I started actively uploading files to Dreamstime just over a year ago and the first month my acceptance percentage was under 60%. I took note of the comments on refusals, read more blogs which can be very helpful and now have an acceptance percentage over 90% which is pleasing.I have taken the majority of my images with the Sony A6000 ILCE and most often with the 16-50mm lens. I have found this... continue reading

Although I joined in 2015 my camera wasn't really up to the task of taking quality pictures. So I purchased a Sony ILCE 6000 and I'm pleased with the results despite not understanding every setting. I have an acceptance rate around 59% which I hope to improve on as I get used to the noise reduction software and photo editor.I am homing in on my first 100 online(6 to go) and have an array of subjects. It is still a learning curve for me but we all have to start somewhere. The main thing is I enjoy... continue reading
I just wanted to say hi everyone. I'm quite new to this whole stock photo thing but I'm looking to hit it running.I've always enjoyed taking photos; one of my proud moments was buying my first 35mm SLR. Not log after that; in the late 90's; I got my first digital camera, a 1.33MP Casio. I thought it was fantastic that I could take an image; then review and delete if no good.. Though I remember that the 4xAA batteries did not last more that 100 images.Since then I had many point and shoot cameras... continue reading
My first Sony mirrorless was the NEX-3. When Sony first released their NEX system, it had a total of just three lenses. A pancake 16mm F2.8, a standard zoom 18-55mm F3.5-F5.6 and a do-all zoom 18-200mm. I was using the Sony DSLR-A550 at the time, which by DSLR standard was considered a lightweight body, especially when paired with native Sony A-mount lenses. The NEX-3 impressed me in so many ways, despite its many limitations (fixed auto ISO range, an insanely complicated menu structure,... continue reading

I have decided to replace my old but superb SONY a700 12MP DSLR with a new SONY a77 24MP SLT.Finally I have buyed a77 yesterday and I can say that this is an amazing machine. If you take a look at my portfolio, then you will see that I very much like macro photography. Specially extreme magnifications of spiders.I needed to upgrade from my 12MP camera to this superb 24MP because I want to make some extra large prints beyond A3 formats, so this camera will allow me to do this.I also... continue reading
And here it is...after one year and two months. With only 167 files online, I have 64 sales and my first 100$. Thanks to all buyers and to Dreamstime also.I feel great.

Since I really love macro photography, this 24MP will give me some great possibilities in croping and still have... continue reading

Hello to all!This is my first post in my blog.For several years now I shoot stock photos. Over the years I have changed quite a few cameras, starting with a simple film camera, and finishing with Nikon D3.I traveling a lot, but traveling to something less noticeable than the high-end full-frame camera, so I began to search among the more compact format sensor APS-C, which can also be used to take the photos outdoor and in studio. My choice was on the Sony Alpha SLT-A55, and may be you will... continue reading
