Dreamstime iPhone app

Do you use it?From time to time I do. I can say, it's pretty good! But unfortunately it has several annoying bugs:1. If you have a call when attributing a photo and then you are back to proceed keywording you will find the photo submitted. And you can't change it then: cancel and resubmit only.    2. You can't pause your submission process (not a bug but a minus).     I would like to have lunch first, then finish the submission process.3. You can't change the attributes of... continue reading

Exotic Insects

Having moved to Malaysia a few months ago I now have access to a wealth of fantastic and exotic insects.I have created a Facebook page called Exotic Insects so that others can enjoy the remarkable bugs that we share the planet with.Some of those photos will shortly appear in my portfolio.Most of the insects I photograph thrive in the Cameron Highlands, which rise to an altitude of about 3,000 feet. The jungle is cooler and more lush there due to the heavy rains.I try to visit the Highlands... continue reading

Extreme Macro

Hello, i haven't posted for a while and i wanted to share with you my new photos made with a reversed 55mm lens on extension tubes. I will try to go even closer with a reversed 28mm lens, as you know as the focal distance goes wider the reversed lens zooms even more, so at this focal range i should have about 4X magnification. Will post again with the new results, in the meantime i hope you like my photos, and advice is welcome. continue reading

Heading outside :)

Insects a Challenging but Rewarding Subject

Insects are an especially challenging subject to photograph for several reasons.They're small and flighty, which poses a need for balance between depth of field and fast shutter speed while trying to get close enough for a full-frame shot without startling the subject out of its momentary repose.For the butterfly pictured, a Zephyr Anglewing (Polygonia gracilis zephyrus) subspecies of the Hoary Comma (Polygonia gracilis), I found such a balance by taking advantage of the bright midday sunlight.... continue reading

Finding Macro Models

Hello everyone!This is my first attempt at the blog forum. My apologies in advance for any blunders, omissions or technical difficulties.Recently I was thrilled to have 4 of my photos accepted into the close-up assignment. So, I thought I'd share my (newbie) methods of finding suitable models -- bugs, bees and butterflies -- for macro shoots.First off, starting with my own very small yard -- about 5’X5’ square -- I keep bee and butterfly attracting plants in pots. Lavenders, sage,... continue reading

Insect Bites

Clicking insects interests me a lot maybe due to my passion for macro photography. But mind you, insects don’t sell much in microstock. I have never seen much of insect photos sell in here no matter how creative your picture might be. That reminds me of a rejection reason – The is not an RF stock oriented Image! Lol. Anywayz, so when you are deciding to click insects in macro, make sure you put them after the shoots that are going to help you earn some good money$$Lets start with ants.... continue reading
