  • The Eyes Have It

    by Ellenboughn | 26th of March, 2008

    Facial expressions and body language can either make or break a photo. Again and again we see images that would be successful if only there was emotion in the image instead of a subject with a bored look or a blank stare. How can you get your models more engaged with your... More

    .......I just couldn't resist - my daughter is 16 months old and is learning to eat by herself. Let me tell you, she's a bundle of joy and really loves life and is always in a good mood. As a result, when letting her eat by herself, it has consequences that are just to much... More

  • Models and context - natural interaction

    by Sangiorzboy | 29th of October, 2009

    As many of us know, working with models can be a real challenge when it comes to the visual result of your concept. It's both a challenge for the photographer and the model and the key to the best result is communication between the two parties. Be friends with your... More

  • The difference a genuine expression can make

    by Acesarek | 26th of January, 2009

    When I work with models for stock photography, it always feels the most successful when the model gives a genuine expression. I like to try to make my models laugh if I want them to smile. With kids you have to be really quick if you want a real smile because they usually... More
  • An Unexpected Model

    by Cmarshall717 | 14th of January, 2009

    Very unique photo opportunities can present themselves at some of the most unexpected times. I was at the CAP 089th Squadron (Civil Air Patrol) to photograph their move into a new facility at MacDill AFB in Tampa, FL. They were moving into a place that had a lot of stored... More

  • Starting an actual photography business - I never saw this coming!

    by Walleyelj | 7th of September, 2008

    When I got my first 2MP point & shoot digital camera from an IT friend of mine several years back, I had no idea where it would lead. Other than a trip to Idaho in 1995, I probably hadn't shot 2 rolls of film in the 10 years before I got that first digital camera. As a poor... More

    Good looking, beautiful women with lollipop in hand or in mouth extra sexy photos, but also have something different in expression, some innocence. It remind me not only some sexually context (and it is not because I am a woman) but more like childhood time, when we all... More
  • Abstracts

    by Cool79 | 14th of March, 2008

    What is this mean abstract? It means everything and nothing. In Poland when we say that it is everything and nothing it means that it does not means something at all. Searching stock by only this one single word gave me some result over 230.000 images that’s a big search,... More
  • In red

    by Papuga2006 | 14th of March, 2008

    For me this color is connected with lovvvvve specially. It is passion, energy, desire and sexy. Red is expressive and noticeable so connected with our hot feelings to someone, ‘red heart on red salver with red roses’ that is the most desired gift for all women that expect... More
  • In blue

  • Smell sense

    by Papuga2006 | 4th of March, 2008

    Exact idea as with sound was dedicated to that subject and I found this subject on DT faster then when I was looking for some sound photos. This subject opposite to sound sense is easier to show in a photo then in illustration I think. So at first I show some illustration... More
