A GPS alternative for Nikon DSLRs

I am a Nikon DSLR user. And since I travel quite frequently I want a GPS device to geotag my photos. A GPS is handy not just for inserting the photo coordinates. But especially since dreamstime has a Geo-location link, when you submit the photo it will show it's shooting position on the map or satellite imagery, providing of course that the photo has GPS coordinates in the metadata. And it is extremely useful to know where exactly did you take a certain picture in order to submit an accurate description... continue reading

How do you guys get access into different places?

That's my question for now,how to get access with a dSLR into places like malls and the likes without a pass or ID?and to make it even more challenging, all this in a place where people think that photographic equipment is worse than a loaded shotgun...I never had this problem on the country side or on public events but when it comes to dealing with city folks it's a whole new story.It's not the first time when I was told to buzz off by random buyers from a PUBLIC market after taking 2... continue reading

Tripods, the one accessory every microstock photographer must have

This subject has been touched on a few times here in the forum. But the importance of this subject warrants a refresher article on this important subject…One of the most important photography accessories, if not THE most important, is a tripod.

Wedding Days

Found some accessories and prop rings from my own Wedding and decided to make them useful again.So I uploaded a bunch of shots that varied somewhat from shot to shot, however I guess they didn't vary enough for dreamstime to accept all of them.Not sure how they determine which ones to choose and not to choose based on duplicate content.Well they picked these anyways continue reading

Our obsessions might be useful)

It seems that spring has finally come to Odessa. The sun is shining bright trying to wake up earth, trees and flowers. And I’m looking forward for the first leaves on the trees and flower buds to shoot (it’s funny how materialistic I’ve become thinking of the surrounding world only in the terms of shooting:)).But only a couple of weeks ago the weather was quite dull. No sparkling snow, but fog and gray air outside instead … That’s why I had to look for something to shoot at home.... continue reading

Beijing Olympic access for freelance photographers - China does it right!

After spending some time in Beijing and shooting several Olympic events I have to give some praise to China for how well they handled the masses. Specifically freelance photographers with no press credentials were treated quite well.The volunteer staff was very friendly and helpful. Despite all the security checks, I never felt like livestock being herded around like I so often do in western airports and high security events.There were very few restrictions on cameras and I was even able to get... continue reading
