    by Ellenboughn | 5th of May, 2007

    by Eganphotography1 | 11th of November, 2013

  • Provocations of Dorothy Lange

    by Shadow69 | 15th of March, 2012

    “While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.” I am simply awe struck by that thought. Read it again, please and... More

    by Jianbinglee | 3rd of February, 2012

  • Reflections on thoughts of Ansel Adams

    by Shadow69 | 22nd of July, 2011

    While desperately thrashing around for some inspiration, I hit upon a thought. Why not look to some of the great masters of photography in the hope that an iota of their genius would rub off on me. Not a very original thought, I admit. But instead of exposing myself to... More

    by Taylorgracephotography | 4th of May, 2011

    I'm a mother, monster-chaser, superhero, wife, cook, artist, and photographer just to name a few. Everyday things/issues have the potential to spell disaster and ruin a sunshiney day. We have but to appreciate the things around us that we have no control over to really see... More

    by Splosh | 3rd of May, 2011

    After my first two months as a DT contributor, here are some of my thoughts and experiences. Consider the pictures you upload. Really! It’s too bad having a picture rejected due to noise, poor composition, blur or other obvious things. You might have been told you are... More
  • First Blog to Celebrate 100th Contribution

    by Herminutomo | 12th of April, 2011

    A milestone, though maybe just a small one, is always something to ponder on gladly. I've been in photography about 5 years, and in graphic design even longer than that, but I've never thought about selling images as microstock (even macrostock). Entering late in a market,... More

    by Mani33 | 8th of May, 2010
