Over The Top Finally At 100 + Uploads And Macro Photography

I had originally aimed at breaking the 100 upload barrier within my first year as a member of DT, but instead it took me 14 months but I finally managed to break the 100 upload barrier and am now sitting at 103 accepted uploads. Now I plan on taking dead aim at the 200 upload barrier by the end of 2010. That may seem a bit ambitious but with each passing upload it gives me a better idea on what DT expects to see in an image for it to qualify and be accepted. I wish to thank all of my fellow DT photographers... continue reading

First Level Two Image Plus Weather Troubles.

A bit of the good and bad here the good being that I finally have my first level two image and it's a macro image of my provinces [Newfoundland In Canada] provincial flower called " The Picture Plant " kind of fitting enough. I have another image sitting on the bubble at 4 downloads so it may not be long before I have another level two. Now the bad, motivation has become a bit of a problem for me lately because I've been sitting at 80 uploads for sometime but it's not because I don't want to go one... continue reading

Keywording And Re-Keywording

I have just recently used some of my earnings to have some of my images re-keyworded, I have found that in some cases that it helps to better promote my portfolio. I must admit however that I'm still somewhat new to to DT as I have not yet been with DT for a year, so my question or query is this, how do my fellow members feel about re-keywording their own images and do you think it benefits your portfolio ? continue reading

Photography In Extreme Cold

The weather here in St John's Newfoundland In Canada has been very unsettled and cold lately thus I have not had much chance to go climbing or take any pictures either. My question is this weather wise around here the windchills have averaged around minus 25 to minus 30 degrees celsius, so I'm wondering what if any effect this may have on my camera [Nikon D90]. The picture you see here was one I shot a couple of weeks ago and at that time the temp was minus 25 degrees celsius. So if any of my fellow... continue reading

Winter Photography

Winter photography has always been an interesting time for me because it's always been somewhat of a challenge for me to find the color in what is basically a black and white world at least when it comes to the wide angle landscapes that I love to photograph. I would be interested in finding out what my fellow photographer think of or look for when doing photography in the winter? continue reading

How Would The Nikon D90 Compare to other DSLR's

I have just purchased a Nikon D90 as a replacement for my Nikon D60 and I would be very interested it what other photographers opinions of this camera are. Here are some of the key points that swayed my decision to get the D90. The Nikon F Mount which makes the camera compatible with any Nikon lens from 1959 on, the 12.3 Megapixel DX Format Sensor, EXPEED image processing, an 11 point auto focus system, 3D Color Matrix Metering II, Scene Recognition System and a 3.0 inch 920,000 Dot TFT LCD With Live... continue reading

Finally At 50 + Uploads And Am Now Exclusive + How Far Would You Go ?

Sorry I've been away for awhile but I'm now back and plan on getting back to full stride. This is my first blog entry in some time but in an attempt to get the perfect picture of massive waves breaking on shore in my home province of Newfoundland Canada, I got complacent and forgot to take into account that an ocean wave breaking on shore may be 20 to 25 feet as they were this day but when a wave that large comes in contact with a cliff face it mushrooms upwards to a height far more than the previously... continue reading

Inviting Constructive Criticism And Answers

Although I am not new to photography I am new to putting my images online for an attempt to sell them. I have no problem with my images being refused by DT, in fact I've learned a great deal about what DT looks for in an image for it to be a candidate for their stock photo database. Two of the reasons DT uses the most when refusing one of my images are " Lack Of Composition " and " Your Image Is Too Specific " and I must admit that I'm not sure what these two reason mean. If anybody could offer me... continue reading

Photography To Me.

I have been an amateur photographer for some time now although I've been held back somewhat due to film developing and whatnot but when my wife purchased a digital camera for me 2 years ago it opened up a whole me world for me. Photography to me has always been about having fun and capturing the wonders of life in a picture because when you have that picture you have a moment frozen in time, never to be taken away. My older sister who is a professional photographersaid that I should consider trying... continue reading
