Don't miss those shots

posted on 4th of july, 2017

Since starting to load images onto Dreamstime last year I have learned a lot from knowing almost nothing about taking a good photo.

Taking pictures in RAW, don't over edit (easy to do), always check images enlarged 100%, get used to using manual settings(trying this with mixed results) and as Penpossessed said in the blog last week..always take your camera!! I walked out of the house very early morning for work this week and as a second thought went back and got my camera..I would have missed a good sunrise.

Commercially maybe not a winner but a good picture which I enjoyed taking. Here is the one that nearly got away..

Learning every day

posted on 15th of july, 2017

I have just passed the 800 images online milestone! I have enjoyed taking photo's over the last 11 months I've actively been uploading to Dreamstime and trying to improve my abilities whilst trying to add some inventiveness to some images. If you look through other site members portfolio's there are some fantastic photographs and also great inventiveness with illustrations etc.

Taking photographs is enjoyable, disappointing when an image is technically not great but worth the time when an image turns out really well. I still have a lot to learn and the more I learn the more I realize I don't know! I think people are always learning, there are so many factors that can change an image, the possibilities are almost endless. Not only am I enjoying the camera work I am learning so much about so many things....
