Everyday we are surprised by a mobile phone manufacturer, especially if we are talking about the camera specifications. It is like a cold war, everyone has a race to see who can develop the most advanced and optimal hardware. On other hand, even stock agencies now accept photos and videos taken by mobile devices. Is that our future? Is photography as a profession going to be forgotten? Personally I think, that taking photos via a smartphone is enjoyable but for social media purposes or other, not... continue reading

Most photographers create their first photos with a smartphone or point-and-shoot cameras. Then the moment comes and you realize that these devices cannot fully express your vision of the objects anymore. Whether you would like to make money with making photos or just enjoy taking great pictures, a good camera is absolutely necessary for achieving high-quality photos and upgrading your skills. A choice of device for beginners is not easy. A gadget should offer additional functions and be simple to... continue reading
Since joining Dreamstime, I've submitted photographs taken with various cameras, starting with a good old point and shoot, followed by a bridge camera and now, with a recently bought DSLR. It's a natural progression but I feel it's still, more about the subject of your photo that counts, rather than the type of camera you use. I've only used the DSLR a little but comparing the three photos, can you tell, which image was taken with which camera (without looking at the date taken of course) ... continue reading
I got my first film lens to digital camera adapter in 2012, when I received a Minolta lens as a gift. I work with a Canon 7D. My daughter, a wedding photographer, told me about using an adapter. They aren’t expensive, so I gave it a try. The adaptor fits between your camera and the film lens.Cottonwood leavesI’m glad I decided to take the risk and invest in an adapter - which sell for $30-$50 on Amazon.com.Fotodiox adapterSince that time, I picked up a Canon A1 at a garage sale,... continue reading
Hi guys,I got bored to geotag my images manually so, I've decided to look for some options on my D750 (continue reading, the solution can be used on any camera!)The official solution from my camera brand maker is an external hotshoe GPS which doesn't appeal to me since:- it's big- external cable will bother my camera grip- is worth more than 200€I've read also about some bluetooth devices (linked to an external gps) which could be plugged... continue reading
Over the years, with my interest in photography, I’ve managed to start a collection of vintage cameras.Some came from my husband’s family, several others from a fleamarket in Tennessee.Oddly enough, almost all of these cameras are being sold on Ebay for not only more than I paid for them, but for more than their original pricetag!Recently, I took the time to photograph the Kodak vintage cameras in my collection and research the history of each one.These cameras are near and dear to... continue reading

I read a lot of reviews before I buy equipment and they are somewhat useful, but sometimes they seem out of touch with the reality of stock photography.Noise free ISO up to 1million?Ummmm, maybe for Facebook posts but not so much if you are a pixel peeping photo enthusiast. Or even if you hope to get an image past DT review, let alone produce one that sells.I currently shoot with a Samsung Galaxy 3 phone camera,a Nikon CoolpixP510, and a Canon EOS 7D.In this article I am sharing what I... continue reading

We amateurs struggle to find time to work on stock, especially when you can upload only a small number of images every month. Every rejection hurts. Trying to grow the portfolio a handful of images at a time is a daunting task for making any real progress.I am the proud owner of the new Nikon D800, a 36 megapixel behemoth, so of course, I have been out shooting with the camera. It's a huge leap having used a D100 for the past nine years.In working with these large files, I have discovered... continue reading
