I am pleased to say I have reached a milestone of 2,611 images on dreamstime, and as many of us know, it is not easy! We may have the best of intentions, be the best photographer, work hard, chain ourselves to the computer,but so many of us also have family and other jobs and duties to attend to.So besides taking the photos in the first place, we then have to download, sort, run through lightroom, play in photo shop, edit some more, touch up, upload, check at 100% for focus, then keyword! PHEW!... continue reading

While to a lot of contributors on here, 10 photographs is nothing but a days work, to me its a big triumph. It shows that I've got something to be proud of, but also that I can definitely improve. The acceptances are becoming more frequent with the new camera upgrade (from a simple, yet effective, point and shoot; to my first DSLR), and I'm absolutely just ruing the fact that I didn't have this camera with me in all my previous travels.

Nothing solves a dearth of ideas like an increase in sales! The best motivation is undeniably appreciation.Since I moved to Los Angeles about 2 months ago I have been establishing monthly goals to overcome in terms of portfolio expansion, and so far I have been doing pretty good achieving my set of goals ahead of time. Although lately I have not devoted as much time for my camera as I would like to, or mostly just making excuses not to shoot due to the lack of inspiration. However, having made... continue reading
Well it's been a very interesting journey I must say and one full of highs and lows.

These are just a few tips I've found have been very helpful for me over the last year as I learned and continue to learn, what drastically helps me get the end result I want.1. Don't go crazy buying the most expensive equipment right away.I used a mediocre DSLR for the last two years, I took the time to really figure out how it worked, what features I wished I had, and which I basically didn't care about.Once I felt I had a good handle on what I really wanted, I made the jump to much more... continue reading
