  • Haunting and haunted locations for photography

    by Tangie | 30th of October, 2013

    We're getting closer to that spooky night of the year when they say the dead walk the earth and all sort of supernatural, spine-chilling phenomena occur. Most of you will probably grab their cameras. Experienced photostockers will always try to shoot the best of the worst... More
  • What Makes Best Selling Photo?

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of February, 2008

    The most popular concepts in the top photographs from last year are happiness/love/family and determined business teams. Don’t drop everything to focus on kisses and bunches of business types. Statistics only tell part of any story. How many images would have been in the... More
  • A Sense of Place (Part II)

    by Ellenboughn | 28th of February, 2007

    by Mudplucker | 11th of October, 2013

    Well, my first on location photo shoot is over and I managed to get MUCH LESS than I expected of myself. The good news I guess is that I at least got something. Here is one of those somethings… To start the day off, the garden center owner had apparently forgotten... More

  • Geotag your pictures without GPS Tracker Unit

    by Digikhmer | 5th of November, 2011

    I bought a GPS Tracker there is almost two years. I was the first ever GPS Tracker. It was SONY GPS CS1-KIT. I used it to geotag my pictures. It was/is still convenient to use when you plan to explore your neighborhood or unknown city. You have just to carry and on it during... More
  • The Second Wind!

    by Taylorgracephotography | 22nd of August, 2011

    Summer is drawing to a close and I've spent the last couple of weeks puttering around being lazy with the kiddos before school starts. Hence, the tutus :) I don't think I've ever spent $10 so wisely as I did when I bought everything to make them for the kids. And even though... More

  • FINDING a Landscape to Photograph

    by Wisconsinart | 6th of November, 2010

    There are tons of resources for photographing the landscape, but how do you FIND a landscape? And what do you do with it once you find it? I enjoy photographing rural scenes. In the beginning, I would drive down back country roads, randomly turning onto different roads;... More
  • Photography by Casper Voogt

    by Cvoogt | 22nd of May, 2009

    I provide a special focus on nature and travel, but also find beauty in mechanical things, even ugly things. Not all beauty is visual. I work hard to find just the right frame and angle, and do almost no post-processing. I will often return to a location to try to photograph... More

  • Place that I like : the south of Spain, Andalucia

    by Sophiesourit | 21st of February, 2008

    I should say that I love. Perhaps because it looks like very exotic for an european. I mean that is a very arid place, and the most of Andalucia can be considered as a desert. A desert where a lot of American western have been shooted in the 60s. And indeed when I've been... More
