    Dog photography

    by Epicmagnagraecias | 26th of April, 2016

    One of the first trouble of a dog photographer: the uncooperating model... It happens always to anyone approaching dog photography. The model seems to move continuously, doesn't pose for more than 1 or a mid second maximum and often barks or tries to lick the camera. LOL!... More

    Bringing in the Birds

    by Melodyanne | 22nd of April, 2016

    Blue Birds are beautiful, but shy . . . they feed in my lawn regularly and I wanted very much to capture a few photos of them. The question was how to get close enough with the camera gear I own to get a good picture. First I established a feeding area near my house. I... More

    Chinese food, food photography

    by Cowboyyang | 21st of April, 2016

      Not everyone will take a heavy SLR camera to eat every time, if you want to bring a reflective plate, or homemade light source, then it is more exaggerated. Can make good food, you will be able to take good photos. Light is the major problem of indoor shooting food, some... More

    One of the most important keys to getting good photos of farm animals is understanding the animal you're working with and knowing its environment. The following photo was originally taken for an assignment demonstrating ways to use up produce that would otherwise be wasted.... More

    Things I learn while shooting for stock - Part 1: out on the streets

    by Unteroffizier | 8th of April, 2016

    When I first handled a digital camera, I did not know to surf the internet for information on camera operations, nor how to look for information on understanding the concepts and relations between shutter speed, aperture and ISO. The internet wasn't saturated with such information... More

    Why I love my iPhone

    by Bjorn999 | 2nd of March, 2016

    I periodically work as a full-time photographer, and periodically as an IT consultant. However, when working as a consultant, I don't always carry my photography gear with me. And that's why I love my iPhone! Together with some good (read great) photo apps (such as ProCamera... More

    It's been quite a journey, but I'm almost reaching 500 pictures online! It's the last few steps, the last images to reach that first goal. The images are already shot, they're just sitting there waiting to be edited , uploaded and keyworded, so I expect to reach this goal... More

    700 files is a time to celebrate?

    by Vladimirz747 | 27th of February, 2016

      700 received files - a lot or a little? If we assume that 350 last accepted files has happened Culti more than 10 sales, how much work is yet to come! I admire and envy those photographers that are in 100 - 200 files have thousands of sales. Well done!   Believe that... More

    Concept photography

    by Apers | 20th of February, 2016

    Concept photography is still very challenging for me. The challenge is to visualize an idea in a single picture. In such a way that it is immediately recognized and that it needs no explanation. I have tried several, however, this did not result in a big sales. Here is my... More

    A 'REAL' assignment

    by Inyrdreams | 13th of February, 2016

    I really enjoyed the dreamstime assignment this month , titled 'real people'. I think unplanned, spur of the moment images are often the best, most magical part of photography. The power of observation is indeed, a super power we all have. But being able to capture that... More
