  • Shots That Take Off. Shooting Air Travel

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of April, 2007

  • Shooting cats

    by Obiectiv | 28th of August, 2014

    Cats are one of the hardest subjects to photograph. To do this, you need a cat or more, and very important, patience, a lot of patience. If you want to capture a certain scene, well thought before shooting, you must have a good relation with the cat, and the cat must cooperate,... More

  • MR each time while shooting..?

    by Vennys | 29th of September, 2013

    As I noticed, there is only 1 MR needed here (for 1 model). When you shoot more times (different days) with the same model, do you sign every time MR? Or may I use same form for the whole year (specific) year..? (only once signed at the beginning) Thanks. VaĊĦek More

  • Forcing myself to "shoot stock"

    by Robinstockphotos | 4th of February, 2013

  • I've run out of reasons for not shooting RAW

    by Alamourus | 9th of November, 2012

    I've finally run out of reasons for not shooting RAW. In days of yore, I used to be able to say: 1)' It's a TIME-CONSUMING step importing RAW photos' into my computer and into my image-processing software--but, truth be told now, it takes about the same time regardless... More

  • Smoke and business shots

    by Shmeljov | 2nd of September, 2012

  • Slowly walking and watching

    by Rosariomanzo | 13th of July, 2012

    Hi all, first blog post for me here. As an architect, I tend to walk slow in new places I visit, trying to capture how life flows in that place and looking at all those small details that a nice genuine environment has to offer. My wife is an architect, too, so I'm lucky... More

  • No uploads, no sales

    by Fotosenmeer | 7th of October, 2011

    Once again my fellow DT-ers were right. One month of zero uploads to DT (due to a vacation) had zero sales as a result. I better stop writing this blog and start uploading......... regards, fotosenmeer.nl See Article
  • Shooting Tethered On The Cheap

    by Ejkrouse | 29th of September, 2011

    I've recently started using tethering software for almost all stock photos I shoot. This manner of shooting allows for instant feedback on a large calibrated monitor, rather than the LCD on your DSLR. I have a Macbook Pro and Nikon DSLR's so with other brands YMMV. The... More

  • Shoot like the professionals.

    by BCritchley | 27th of March, 2011

    This may be obvious to some and maybe not to others so I thought I would share. I'm sure there can not be too many secrets out there on how the pro's like say Yuri Arcurs get those great looking bright corporate style images. Some of it will be the equipment used and... More
