Hello everyone,After a short abstinence, during which I studied the possibilities of my equipment and learned about stock photography, I decided to make some changes and try again with a different approach. I started to turn around and look for details that in normal circumstances I wouldn't have noticed. I try to recognize the scattered elements with certain potential and put them together into the system attractive for photography. I hope to move forward in this direction and that my efforts would... continue reading
Tuesday, the 19th seemed to be just like any other day, with some lecture, papers, and all the fun stuff that comes with university life. But that morning was also the first time I have ever had a sale on dreamstime! It was only for 58 cents, at an "extrasmall" resolution. Apparently, the buyer did not even search for any keywords, as the entry was marked as n/a. I have no idea who bought it, or what they intend to do with this image, but I'm sure it will be put to good use! I actually like... continue reading

I have 281 images uploaded and have achieved a grand total of $114.67.After reading some great advice from experienced DT members before I began uploading, I promised myself I would try to maintain a high acceptance ratio and have been able to stay around the 85% mark.... continue reading

I am excited to be taking my first online photography class with Jim Zuckerman and better photo.com. The class I chose is 8 steps to more dramatic photography.Our first lesson was on selecting great subjects.And the assignment?Submit examples of great subjects paired with similar subjects that are not so great.It sounded deceptively simple, but when I closely reviewed the assignment and the lesson, I had difficulty determining what makes a great subject great.I used some photos from... continue reading
After taking slow and erratic steps into this wonderful world of photography and after seven years of determination I have finally decided to leave the financial comfort of my "real job" and dedicate myself in full to photography and I cannot express the wonderful free feeling that I have!!! After finally leaving a personal relationship over 2 years ago that kept my personality suppressed and having worked for others always and other peoples ideas and commands for many years too, the feeling of freedom... continue reading
