Spring photography

posted on 5th of april, 2009

When somebody asks me why I love photographing and creating images, I always answer: "Because I love to play with light and colors". Spring offers a big opportunity to play with both of them.
As for spring, I love to focus on white and green. This year I plan to make many photos with spring nature.

As for me, I love green as a spring color, the spring green color is so fresh and so optimistic. However I also love the whitem the blue and the pink like spring colors.

A very popular spring color is, of course, yellow. I like very much yellow, especially I love dandelions, they are like small suns in grass. There are a lot of images with dandelions, but I will make photos of dandelions...

I very much wait for approach of spring... I Wait green, bright, juicy. While at us it not so, but remains to a few time. Some people wish to be photographed on the nature and we wait for it. It is more all than light, heat and bright emotions!

Try to be a buyer for a while

posted on 14th of april, 2009

Last week one of my friend told me about her experience of searching images of angels. After our discussion, I´ve tried the part of a buyer. I would suggest to all photographers to make such an experience. Especially for getting an idea how keywording is an important, but very difficult process.
I have written "angel" in search area and then I have tried several
searching possibilities - relevancy (descending), upload date etc. Here is my honest opinion about my experience.

Recently a contributor in forum has mentioned he had to "overcome"many sexy Santa Clause women after writing words "Christmas". There are also many sexy women with wings. On one side, the keyword "angel" is right here, but people searching for angels will hardly downloaded sexy models....

Hello Sherry - thank you very much for your nice comment. I agree, I used to put also many keywords in the beginning, then I have - on the other hand - put just the basic keywords as I thouhjt it is better. Now I tried to be "in the center", to put the basic keywords, but also some keywords expressing my idea I wanted to express. For example I hace made a hand with light on palm and this is a conceptual idea for "hope" IMHO. But keywording is a real "science" :-) Have a wonderful day!

OMG Jitka, what a great Post. I guess I should look more into the details of keywording. I am both a contributor and a buyer. As a buyer I find myself creating various collections so that I can identify images quickly the next time I need them.

But as a contributor, I probably tend to put too many keywords and perhaps to my disadvantage. Something I must fine tune.

As a buyer I find myself (excluding) items that come up in the search. With the ever expanding DT portfolio, I often wonder what images I'm missing when I do a search (due to incorrect keywording on both our parts).

Great Post Jitka! Sherry Piatti

The origin of the word "photography" is from Greek and means "write with light". I love to "write with light". I will be happy if you enjoy "my writings with lights". Thanks for visiting my portfolio, I wish you good eyes for chosing photos and light in your life!
