Working as a reviewer for already a long time, I have seen “tons” of pictures of all kinds. One could say: what kind of picture could ever surprise you after seeing already “tons” of them?

As you might know, we have this post on the blog with “the image of the week”. The idea is to comment on the image we liked the most from what we reviewed during a week.

So this week was my turn. I don’t decide in advance to choose a photo from one category or another. I like to be surprised myself as indeed every week brings new pictures. I really saw great images this week and we’ll try to promote them on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

But from all the pictures one impressed me more than I expected. It’s called: Camels at Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote wait for tourists. It’s uploaded by Jorg Hackemann. (more…)

Image of the week: a lesson about creativity and simplicity!

Vector of a butterfly by Daniel Marcus
Available for sale on: http://yaymicro.com/stock-image/butterfly/3652189

Some years ago, I was thinking about the future of microstock and asked a friend: How long will it last? Won’t come a time when we’ll have too many images of everything? He said: No, think of the new technologies, new fashion trends… We’ll always need updated pictures with people. He was right but I think it’s even more than that.

Microstock is about people and art. Every person is unique and can express his own vision in an original way, based on his own experience, feelings and knowledge. And yes, we do need that, especially in mass-media or design!

The image of the week is actually a proof that simplicity and creativity can work together incredibly well! Its name is “Vector of a butterfly” and comes from Daniel Marcus.

What’s so great about this picture? (more…)
