  • Use of photos for controversial topics

    by Cathyr1 | 19th of January, 2015

    I am new to stock photography and have not yet made much use of photos of people. Usually my “models” are young family members and I have not yet come to terms with the fact that there is no real control over how the photos are used. I think that the only time I really... More

  • Size Matters

    by Mscott9985 | 17th of November, 2013

    I'd been warned, but I didn't pay attention. Or, rather, I paid attention, but ignored the advice. Here's what I'd been told: Never buy the extra-small size picture. Always go for extra-large. But although I was new to the cover-design end of writing, I figured I knew... More
