Thank you buyer for architectural photos

Today, six of my photos, series of "Modern Living in Australia" were sold.Hope architectural photos are still in demand.All the shots were taken on moving boat. I was lucky enough because it was a bright sunny day that allow me to shoot with reasonably fast speed (1/500), Aperture f/8.0 and ISO 100.All shoots were in RAW mode and post processing in LR.Thank you very much.       continue reading

Color corrected light, product photography and RAW mode

Dear all,Few silly questions here.I like to try product photography lately. What I heard is all light sources have to be same temperature/color.1)So I would like to know is there any impact of lighting (if they are in different temp/color) in final image if I shoot in RAW mode and adjust the white balance in photo-shop light-room?2)On the lamp, color temperature is mentioned as 5500K but how do I know it is really 5500K? Is there any way to check this?3) Anyway to shoot so that background... continue reading

Perth, western Australia.

Went to Perth last week and have some pictures. Feware already uploaded and few more to come.Perth is beautiful and especially King's Park is a place from which you can enjoy the beautiful skyline of the city.It has plenty of old and new architectural sites and that is one of the particular features I love most.Several buildings of early 1900, or at least the facade are maintained while they are replaced by modern high rises.My first priority was to capture the Perth skyline, but, unfortunately... continue reading

50 credits sales

Just a hobbyist,without tons of uploaded images,several images still being rejected by DT,earning a little more than usual make me jump, jump and jump.I don't have good sales in 2013. One of the reasons I believe is I quit as an exclusive contributor end of last year and sales drop abruptly. Before that I have a quite stable sales monthly but not much. Later then I come back as an exclusive member again. (DT management is kind enough to accept me back. Thanks guys :D)Quite disappointed... continue reading
