  • Now, more work and less talk...

    by Robinstockphotos | 12th of June, 2013

    I had been waiting impatiently for getting proper equipment. I have been tired of post processing each and every single photo from my compact camera. The only good feature of my compact camera is IS and 840mm lens. So, finally...the much awaited equipment upgrade! I... More

    by Eclecticelegance | 10th of February, 2013

    Hello again. :-) Long time, no blog-eth. Oh, well. :oops: I've had a busy year so far, and I'm a senior now at my university, so I'm focusing on finishing up and graduating. ;-) But! I did make a very important purchase over last summer--I finally bought my DLSR... More

  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review

    by Bradcalkins | 22nd of June, 2012

    If you follow my blogs and forum posts, you know I've long been a fan of the Micro Four Thirds system. I'm a firm believer that for most photos or end uses we have reached a point where full frame cameras are an unnecessary expense (each to their own, of course!). I've... More
  • IR Photography, any other way of creating this?

    by Bitesize | 4th of April, 2012

    I read an article on Infrared Photography aka IR Photography. Filters are difficult to get and very expensive. Has anyone achieved a similar, although probably not as perfect, effect with software or using other equipment? And no lol, I won't be stripping my camera... More

  • Don't ditch those point-and-shoots

    by Vogonify | 13th of July, 2011

    I have a Canon 60D. Expensive camera. 18 mega pixels. Super features. With a Canon 50mm f1.8, it is tack sharp. Worth every unit of currency. Yet, my last eight approvals on DT have come from images shot with my old, faithful Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot. Why did that... More

  • Mini Review: Canon 7D for stock

    by Bradcalkins | 11th of March, 2011

    I've owned and shot with a Canon 40D for a while now, and have been very happy with it. For my personal use it is more than adequate as well. I did feel that 10MP was starting to get dated, especially when cropped - and I figured if I was going to produce 500 photos a year... More

  • Why primes rock! (Part 1)

    by Bradcalkins | 2nd of September, 2010

    For a while now I've been using my zoom lens a lot, but after getting a Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 lens I realized how much I miss using prime lenses. After getting and using a 28mm for my SLR I'm reminded how versatile prime lenses can be. Here are my top reasons for... More
  • Expensive Equipment--is it necessary?

    by Elimitchell | 1st of June, 2010

    A couple months ago, I read a blog on DT focusing on the use of compact point-and-shoot cameras for microstock photography. Many people who become interested in photography hold back from seriously pursuing it because they think they need expensive equipment to be a photographer.... More
  • Transition from film to the digital world

    by Hugoht | 17th of February, 2010

    I am an amateur photographer. Until relatively recently I shot film and was very pleased. For years I used a basic SLR (Nikon F50) and various Nikon lenses. Most of my pictures are from being in the right place at the right time and not so much setting... More
  • Photography - work with what you have

    by Nikitu | 29th of January, 2010

    I was watching a make-up artist today telling people how to do the same make-up or even better with what they had at home and not buy ridiculously expensive products just to try and match his work. Sometimes people ask us, editors, if they should buy a better camera, a "... More
