Manual or Auto Shooting

For as far as I remember, I have always shot in RAW and in Manual mode, But as new technology gets better, I cant help but notice that there are other stock photographers who set it on Auto and are able to get soo much photos online.I guess it would make sense because they have less processing time.Do you shoot in Auto or Manual? Also do you post process your photos? thoughts and ideas? continue reading

They just don't build them like this anymore...

Summertime is here and among all of the other great activities of summer, its time for owners of classic cars to awaken from their winter slumbers.Cars that hide all winter from salt-ridden roads and bad weather get dusted off, shined up and lead gassed for the summer car season.Its time year for owner's of classic cars bring them out and show them off.I'm always amazed by how many of these great old cars are still in the hands of private "collectors" and are still in great condition.I'... continue reading

AF Micro Adjustments- Handy Tool

This simple tool will help to assist in the procedure of micro adjustments, and you can download it here here. It should be displayed on an LCD screen a 100% zoom setting, so at native size.It works by exploiting the interference patterns, or moiré, between the R/G/B LCD elements and the camera's LCD elements when directly viewed with Live View. With good optics and perfect focus, the moiré is maximized. Depending on shooting distance, choose the Live View zoom setting (full, 5x 10x) that shows... continue reading

International Auto-Moto Show Bucharest 2012

After a long absence in Bucharest was organised SIAMB 2012 (International Auto-Moto Show Bucharest) on 4-8 of april. The show was hosted in front of The Parliament Palacein some strange wedding-like tents, not in some real organized hall room like in any civilized country. Of course the cars were sandwiched in one another because the lack of space so you couldn't take the nice photos you see in any real autoshow. It this weren't enough there were some tables were you think you could stay and eat... continue reading

Going Manual

I started shooting pictures in college back in the day when you used a light meter, everything on the camera was manual and post processing consisted of a bit of dodging and burning on the enlarger. Needless to say the move to digital has been full of learning curves, mostly figuring out what all the camera can do and how to make adjustments to have it do what I want.The one bit of advice I have is not to be afraid to go back to manual. Just because the camera and it's little micro chips can make... continue reading

Site feature I never found until now:

Call me stupid (well actually I'd rather you didn't) but after over a year on Dreamstime I have only just discovered a feature which will make my submission process easier and keep my blood pressure down.My problem has always been the "Auto Continue" feature. I like to select the next image to work on myself but AC just brings up the oldest image from the Unfinished Images pool. You can disable this but it works so fast that I usually cannot click it in time.The answer (for anyone that doesn'... continue reading

Auto modes versus manual

I wrote this blog on my own blog a while back, but reading Rebecca's post today made me think of this again and thought it would be useful on DT:My mother is taking a course on photography and she was commenting on how her teacher was touting the advantages of shooting in manual. While I am no stranger to manual I really think this argument is directed to people who set the camera to program and then don't notice what settings the camera picks. This is a crucial point - there is not an iota of... continue reading

Microsoft Photo Editor got me approved

Have you ever had a photo rejected due to poor lighting or contrast issues?The phrase usually reads, "Poor lighting setup, poor contrast or incorrect exposure."I have and I'm not really surprised either.Living on a budget, I am stuck working on cheap non calibrated monitors that are not very good for photo editing.So I don't always get the lighting, contrast, and exposure to a place where they are acceptable to DT.This week I had two photos rejected for that very reason.... continue reading
