  • Idaho Heritage: Snake River +

    by Willhavenrg | 18th of November, 2014

    I am going to talk more about technique. The reason both these photos work is the shadows.         . I try to think about how they would look on a wall before I pressed the shutter button. The rock makes the second photo. In the albums there is on large... More
  • Adobe Illustrator - Fighting Again With Pixels

    by Inspirationgame | 11th of November, 2013

    Hello Everyone: Long time no talk. To make a long story short, I have been inactive on Dreamstime for quite a while after the loss of my sweetheart in 2011. But life's worth living, and I am back with plenty of inspiration. As I wrote in my first article, I am new to illustration... More
  • How To Take a Shadowless Object/Product Photograph

    by Parkinsonsniper | 4th of June, 2012

    Hi, I loved this blog writing thing...one of my recent blogs is in the Google’s first page and it made me feel really proud. So I think I will keep writing :) Whatever... Altough I’m not a professor or expert on studio lighting, I want to write about “shadow-... More
  • Autumn has fallen and the winter ...

    by Yellowind | 16th of November, 2011

    Sometimes I wonder, that it's great to live in a place where can see and enjoy every four seasons. The autumn is great time for photography. The colors! So many landscapes that have special view in this season. The shadows and the sun position! At the time the day started... More
  • Wildlife Photography Secrets: Angle of Light

    by Visceralimage | 18th of January, 2011

    In the old days, you would purchase a package of film and inside the film box was an instruction sheet that described the concept of sunny 16, shooting your images with the sun at your back and other such general information. The makers of the film knew that shooting... More
  • Checklist photography

    by P0temkin | 27th of July, 2010

    .... Exposure? Check. Rule of thirds? Check. Noise? Check. Focus? Check. White balance? Check. Boring? For sure. Im a photo newbie, so the above checklist is usually quite time consuming to get past. And getting the photo technically correct is important... but... More
  • Color above the shadows

    by Mildegard | 9th of February, 2009

    I don't know if it will be news to you, but want to share anyway. While drawing in Photoshop I always preferred placing color first and adding shadows, midtones and highlights next. One friend gave me an idea to try it vise versa. Place all shadows and highlights, he said,... More
  • Beware of the Time of Year

    by Ahdrum | 14th of January, 2009

    You may or may not realize that the time of the year can greatly effect your shot. I am not talking about color in the leaves, or snow.....but shadows. Even here in Southern California, my photography is greatly effected by the time of the year despite the year long great... More
  • 14-bit capture

    by Bradcalkins | 14th of January, 2009

    One of the things that comes with most high end DSLRs these days, but may be missing on the mid level ones is 14-bit capture. Some of the Nikons allow switching between 12-bit and 14-bit (sorry Sony, Olympus, and Pentax owners - I don't know enough about them). I've seen... More
  • The picture in the picture.

    by Dcwcreations | 27th of October, 2008

    It's easy to fall into the mindset that if Dreamstime has over 4,000,000 photos online is there anything left to add? The answer is yes yes yes. In fact new photos are selling every day. Also there are a few things we can do to increase the chances of a photo selling.... More
  • Shadow or Light? It's a question!

    by Lhj | 16th of October, 2008

    Photography is called as the art of light and shadow, as you may all know. However, I do not know whether you have the similar question as I have: whether I shall use shadow more than light in the shot or not? I am still wondering and considering. If you also have any ideas... More
  • Review: Lumiquest Softbox III

    by Bradcalkins | 15th of October, 2008

    I was looking for something small and light that would make a good flash modifier, and soften the light. After getting a couple of payouts from DT, I decided to purchase Lumiquest's new softbox III for $40. It is lightweight, folds flat, and fits in my camera bag (a little... More

  • Races Are Hard Work (Even When You Are Volunteering)!

    by Charlesoutcalt | 30th of March, 2008

    Yesterday I got up at 3:30 AM and drove 30 minutes to the Metro so I could wrestle my bike onto a subway train to get down to the stadium by 6:00. I was set to photograph a local marathon for a charity group that's near and dear to my heart. I've been involved with... More
  • Exposure and Tonal Contrast

    by Aryanimagery | 12th of February, 2008

    Correct Exposure is combination of Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO and a creatively correct exposure is combination of all of above and the photographer’s creative mind. I believe there is nothing can be termed as bad or good light for my exposure, it should be appropriate... More
  • Illustrator techniques

    by Valdecasas | 12th of October, 2007

    While watching so many talented illustrations in this site, I developed a big interest in this subject. I am trying also to illustrate with vectos... well now at the beginning at lease something that people could recognise! :) I bought a book to practice but somehow I... More
  • Shadow talks

    by Mailthepic | 6th of September, 2007

    We always come to a time where we saw some outstanding picture with very good lighting that we wish we can do it also. It is possible, look carefully at the shadows. Ask yourself with this Question: 1)Where the shadows drop. 2)How harsh is the shadows.... More
  • Add That Third Dimension

    by Avion49 | 23rd of August, 2007

    Tony is currently writing a series of tutorials for Photoshop, so I thought I'd start encouraging folks here to try 3D. "Why go 3D?" you ask. Because in 3D work, you can once again begin to play with light and shadows. You can create without the need for drawing skills... More
  • My camera, my shadow

    by Fertographer | 22nd of August, 2007

    Ever since I got my DSLR, I have told myself to get use to its weight. Besides its weight, its abit hard for me to ever 'downgrade' to a compact camera. Not that I am putting down PnS cameras but you will somehow find the buttons and dials on the DSLR missing on the PnS -... More
  • What do you think about black background?

    by Starblue | 13th of August, 2007

    Recently I have read several materials about using black background. Not a long time ago, I have tried to take photos with black background. For example in case of this image of children´s hand protected by mother´s hand. What I like about the black background... More
