  • What size is....?

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of October, 2008

  • Trying new stuff. And it gets accepted.

    by Beyo1980 | 10th of December, 2013

    When you have two kids and one of them is 6 (the other almost 2) you can get very creative in thinking and doing when it comes to getting ideas for shoots. Kids never sit still and there attention span isnt the biggest in the world. How do you make sure you let them sit still?... More
  • My favorite way to smooth skin quickly!

    by Nansaidh | 29th of February, 2012

    Imagenomic's Portraiture Plug-in, without a doubt, is one of the best new plug-ins I use. Imagenomic’s software provides every creative control I could want, but I’ve found the default settings so accurate that I end up tweaking them only on rare occasions. Usually,... More

    by Mariaam | 26th of November, 2011

  • Think Tank

    by Wongj84 | 5th of June, 2011

    Its often hard to think of good stock ideas. Perhaps we can inspire one another? What works, what doesn't. Lighting ideas, that make or break photos. Ideas that are lacking, designers feel free to chime in as well. Micro stock has been around for awhile, and it seems... More
  • Box Breakers

  • Worth it?

    by Sooogles | 28th of December, 2010

    I sat here wondering if it's worth the time of putting up stock photos on this website, then I realized I spend a lot of time thinking about how I waste time, and then it slips away without me knowing. So yeah it's worth it. See Article

  • Reassessing my creativity

    by Danienel | 16th of October, 2009
