Keep it clean ... or not

Yesterday I got almost 2$ for a small download of this image, one of my first uploads to DT and 6 downloads so far:Now I went kinda far off post-processing this one, skewing colors, blowing out highlights and creating a strong halo around the turbine. I didn't know I was destroying the photograph back then, I just thought it looked cool. Well DT probably thought so as well and accepted it right?Most other stock sites rejected the image, for all of the above reasons. As I originally shot... continue reading

Keeping It Clean

I recently completed a photo shoot for a client that was on a tight schedule. They had purchased some discounted ad space with a fast approaching "deadline for materials" date and wanted a photo that was fresh. After the main subject is selected, I try to get the best product sample that is available. In this case, my subject was a piece of metal industrial hardware. Being that their warehouse was on site, I select the best piece available with regards to cosmetics. The reality of some industrial... continue reading

My favourite sensor dust technique

I only clean my DSLR sensor when I am at home. Sometimes, when I'm on a long trip and I change lenses very often and there can be some irritating sensor spots on my photos.At home, it takes some time to find all the sensor spots and "heal" them. Sometimes I don't see one and I have to adjust it later.

At home, import... continue reading
