How to get inspired with a broken heart

9 years with a guy. We were best friends and lovers until the end. Back a few months ago his last single friend got engaged and he figured he would want to do the same.

I didnt get any of those answers.I have not uploaded any pictures since he has been gone, little lone picked up my camera. Im broken, a shell... continue reading

The rusty charm of the broken stuff

There are plenty of pretty photos at DT: Monumental buildings, nice flowers, delicious tomatoes, lovely landscapes, cute dogs "smiling" into the camera...But what about the old destroyed stuff? Everything which exists will be dismantled or will get broken - it's just a matter of time.

There are also plenty of examples of really good-selling stock images that almost certainly have received their share of histogram abuse. But how do those clever... continue reading

The Good With the Bad

One of my Ultraviolet lens filters broke the other day. After getting a little ticked off, I saw how pretty the shards of glass looked in the afternoon light, and grabbed my camera, and began shooting. After a little work in Photoshop, I began to see that there will always be a little good that can come with the bad. continue reading

The Broken Window Makes New Lesson

By now, a photo about the broken window in my portfolio sells better then the others. The better selling prompts me to review the course of the photo production as well as to think about the photography. I want to find some special threads or factors of its merit.I live in the upper floor of a department building.
