To blog or not to blog?

posted on 18th of may, 2009

Every time I get notification about new blog entry from DT I wonder if I have enough time to devote to write on yet another site. I post my earning on my own website every month now but it's just my generic diary not devoted to microstock. I participate in MicrostockGroup forum, use Twitter and Facebook. Additional presence on very specialized blog site would not bring anything to the table. I would rather go shooting. I just got my new 5Dmk2 and it seems like a lot of things are different than in my old camera. First thing I noticed was my wide angle lens. I need to watch what focal length is used when I photograph people cause at 17mm some photos looks funny. Also I am experiencing almost unnaturally saturated photos when CPL is used. Some site claim that photos are over manipulated. It looks great on landscapes but for other stuff I might tune it down a little.

Most of the better cameras have filters build in to them that are better turned off because they manipulate the photo before you upload them.I am not a face book or twitter fan these sites seem to be use a lot to manipulate people. I find most of the dreamstime people are good hearted. For some real good camera information check out Keney123 posted at 10/04/2008 and please realize the time he took to help out dreamstimers

It's not professional either, some say pro cameras must have weather sealing :-)

I love your title for your article - Shakespeare seems to be popular for titles of blog articles here lately - see "A rose by any other name would not sell as sweet"

About me

I work as a software engineer. I\'ve been taking photographs since I was in elementary school. My first SLR was Praktica MTL 5B, after that I have been shooting with Canon EOS cameras. I embraced the digital format in 2003 after trying to scan slides for a while. Now I shoot solely on this medium. Now I am trying to review my archives and start selling my work. Constructive criticism is always welcomed. I enjoy taking pictures of a variety of subjects, however in my portfolio contains mostly nature and travel shots.
