  • Is my statistics graphic reversed? Or...

    by Rosariomanzo | 3rd of September, 2012

    …am I becoming a better photographer? It's a few months I see accepted photos are more than rejected ones, and the trend is going up. I still have a small portfolio and a few sales, but that was my main goal: learning and improving my technique. I'm sure more sales will... More

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 - First Impressions

    by Robseguin | 19th of August, 2012

    First of all, I need to stress that this is my no means a technical review of the Canon 5D Mark 3. I will leave that to the experts. I cannot compare this to other brands such as Canon's main competition Nikon because I have never used one. I will however compare this to... More

    by Retina2020 | 23rd of July, 2012

    It's finally announced and looks very promising. I've been shooting a digital Rebel XT for awhile and always thought to upgrade to a 5D but since my son's arrival, I've been looking for a camera at is smaller but would still deliver the same quality as full fledged dSLRs.... More

  • Review: 70-200 4L USM

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.... More

  • Southern Europe - dramatic but oh so beautiful

    by Elifranssens | 29th of June, 2012

    One hears a lot of talk these days about Southern Europe: Greece, Spain, Italy. Unfortunately most of this talk is rather negative, it's almost always about the dramatic economic situation these countries are in. I just wanted to remind you all that there's... More

    by Newsfocus1 | 24th of May, 2012

    This month I had the pleasure of reaching a total of 400 downloads on Dreamstime. The images that did it were two of the seafront at Mandraki on the Greek island of Nisyros. They sold at the same time to (I assume) the same buyer so jointly get the award as sale number 400.... More

    by Crazydaizy99 | 11th of May, 2012

    I have been scouring the blogs lately and I have seen a certain wall between professional photographers and amateur photographers. I have read the arguments that anyone with a digital camera can now snap a decent shot and upload "stock" photos and essentially dilute the stock... More

  • Arnold Newman's art

    by Shadow69 | 17th of April, 2012

    Although my approach has become popularly known as environmental portraiture, it only suggests a part of what I have been doing and am doing. Overlooked is that my approach is also symbolic and impressionistic or whatever label one cares to use. So said Arnold Newman... More
