WOW I have database exposure!!!!

posted on 11th of march, 2011

Just before I start this quick blog article sitting here safe in my home in England I want to send out my thoughts to those currently being affected by the earthquake and tsunami hitting Japan and surrounding areas. I really hope we do not see the great loss of life we did on Boxing Day 2004.

So I have hit a milestone this week with 500 pictures online. I only really started making an effort in April 2010 so managed to get them on over the last 11 months. Still nowhere near to being a prolific uploader but gaining knowledge and experience in this field.

So today I noticed on my statistics page that where all my previous months show 0.00% under database exposure that as of this month my database exposure has rocketed to 0.01%, I feel very humbled by this monumental achievement and feel great that...

Congrqrats on your exposure! That sounds a little twisted! Giggle I appreciate this since I found this blog by searching the web for help on how to get exposure on DT! I've just started uploading stock this year. I know it all starts out slow, but I've had 3 sell on ******** and have had so sales here yet, so I was wondering if it was because of this exposure thing on DT.
This makes me feel better! :)
Love these images! Love the image in the middle, I can see that expression being used for all sorts of things! Best wishes!

The BBC news payed her a tribute last night saying she was famous for her beauty and her marriages..... I thought the fact she was an actress may have been worth a mention.

Not "chequered" ... how about 'multi-faceted'? LOL

I have a book in my collection which has got all the prominent photographs of her in various movies, from the time she started acting.
What a chequered life.......

This may be obvious to some and maybe not to others so I thought I would share.

I'm sure there can not be too many secrets out there on how the pro's like say Yuri Arcurs get those great looking bright corporate style images. Some of it will be the equipment used and how they use such equipment, so here I am not reinventing the wheel but just going to point out a feature I find useful here on DT.

So what settings are used on indoor shoots, how is that great DOF created, how is that level of sharp focus achieved in a certain type of shot.

Well I have found it very useful when looking at such great shots to go into the tools option and scroll down to the bottom and there is all the EXIF data i.e for the image above :

Looking forward to more of your posts.
