1001 imagesIt’s been 3 years, and my goal was to have 1000 images in 12 months! It’s not as easy as you’d think! But being a stock photographer/vector artist has taught me so much! It’s forced me to expand my talents, look for new things, explore new ideas and be just a little more bold. It also showed me what not to do (there are enough flowers and squirrels out there, thank you very much) - and enabled me to tap the creativity I was born with. These days, I only submit the best of... continue reading

HelloJust a quickie to say that I've had a few more images accepted onto Dreamstime, so well onto my target of 100 online.I know rejections are a pain, but without them we could miss out on doing our very best work.I do appreciated that the whole aspect of photography is quite a learning curve, especially for this old girl, but at the same time I'm loving every minute of it.Just one more thing I'm absolutely staggered at the talent of the artists on DT, and to say how inspiring it is... continue reading
Some people have a natural talent, and some have to work hard to achieve results.Not just in photography........Example: When I was young, my 3 older sisters and I all had piano lessons. We played all that was taught to us, we played reasonably well, and that was as far as it went. My younger brother eventually took the same piano lessons, and he would come home and practice, "Not what he had learnt", but what he FELT. He would go off into his own little world & create his own style of music.... continue reading
A question has weighed on my mind due to recent events in my personal life. And the question is this: If someone with less talent but who has 2+ years of photography classes under their belt really any better than someone who has more talent but no education in photography (aside from experience, let's say they both have the same amount of experience, just for argument's sake)? People who know me personally know why my answer is what it is. But I'm curious as to what everyone's opinion is. Does talent... continue reading
Mani’s blog about his talented friend encouraged me to write a public praise and thank you to a very dear friend of mine who now is one of us here in DT.I once mentioned a friend who upgraded her dslr and in the process thought of me, thus, I became a proud owner of my very first dslr.Yes, that would be her, RB.Please take a moment to browse through her portfolio.Although it is yet in its start, it will give you an idea of how talented she is!Above her talents in the field of... continue reading
I consider myself an amateur photographer since I don't have a degree in Photography,and have only taken one beginners photography course several years ago, while in High School.I think that having no formal photographic qualifications can be a drawback, but sites like Dreamstime have made it possible for amateur photographers to be featured alongside professionals.It I think that one of the main differences between amateur and professional photographers is the equipment, since professionals... continue reading
I realise this has been asked a million times before, but i was wondering.In my own case i cannot draw, paint or produce an image by any 'manual' means known to man (or woman).I do not say this for effect or to elicit protestations of 'oh, you're not that bad' or similar.I really am rubbish.So can you imagine my delight when i discovered that i could create 'art' with a computer?I am finally able to produce something that appeals to me (i believe you should always create artistic work... continue reading
Well, I've looked around dreamstime quite a bit and there is a lot of excellent work here. It boggles the mind the amount of talent here. It makes me want to pick back up my camera and polish back up my photography skills.I might just do that.This is one example of what I'm talking about with the excellent quality work. continue reading
