Looking for Inspiration

posted on 9th of may, 2013

As a photographer at times we all tend to forget that all our shots revolve around a same theme or in some cases they are so diverse that its hard to find out. It is amazing to note that paintings of great artists are so unique in nature that one can guess the artist based on the style of work. The same happens in photography as well. As an amateur one tries a lot to learn. Some may call it copying and some call it inspiration. I would like to use the later word.

In earlier days the inspiration for a amateur photographer usually came from magazines or a photo exhibition, but now a days with the increased use of technology there are lot of avenues where we get the chance to view and appreciate the work of great photographers. Dreamstime is one such site where...

I've been working as a layout artist for years and I can say this about Sergey's uploads. They are very, very easy to use for artworks. Ease is probably what sells for him so this might be his key for high sales.

Thank you for adding my image. :)

Good article. Glad to see an active Indian on this site. Fact is, people here don't really know much about the potential of stock or photography in general. No surprise if you find people patronizing a photographer or mocking someone photographing strange things.
But it is the inspiration and aim that counts, brush the negatives aside. Good luck!

Dust in Sensor

posted on 20th of may, 2013

In one of my recent trips I have end up having some dust in my sensor and my attempts to clean this had caused more damage than help. I tried the local canon service center but they would not help as my EOS 350 D is too old and is no longer supported. The only option that seems left out for me is to go for a new camera. I also visited the canon store to check out some new camera, I liked Canon 5D MarkIII and Canon 6D but this is going to burn a huge hole in my pocket. I am sure this is not only going to burn my pocket but the whole pant too..

This left me wondering the (D)SLRs are usually designed to support multiple lens and while one is travelling its hard to find a dust free environment to change the lens. Why wouldn't Camera manufactures keep this mind and have a protective...

this is true: my Nikon D3s is necessary to clean the sensor much more often than my old d50 but it may also depend on the size of the sensor and its characteristics. As I wrote, the powder is something that we have to get used to living and I believe that it is precisely for this reason that the photo editing programs have tools dedicated to remove stains from the early versions. the first time I cleaned the sensor I was very scared, today is just one annoying thing!

I used to run into dust from time to time and had to clean my sensor once or twice when a blower wouldn't do it. I switched to Olympus last year and haven't seen dust since. They must be doing something right with their sensor cleaning (which the Canon had too)...

My local full service camera store (not a service center) always cleans my sensors at no cost, even on my old camera. (Since it is a camera store, and they would like my repeat business on photo equipment and supplies, they very happily clean the cameras.) Have you tried any camera stores? Even if you buy a new camera, it would be nice to have the dust off the sensor of the old one:)
