Hello,Last month i decided i wanted to part from my old Canon 400D and its kit lens. Now I face one big decision: which Canon body should become my "new partner in crime"?At the moment my options are the follwing:1. Canon 7D2. Canon 5D mark II3. Canon 6D (which will soon be available for sale).Now I know, the first one is a crop camera and the second and third one are full frame cameras. You can now buy a new 7D camera for quite a good price and although it is a crop camera it has... continue reading
For my first post here in my Dreamstime blog i wanted to mention the one thing that frustrates me the most about stock photos...I would love it if Photographers would not zoom in so much upon their subject.As a raw image i can perform my own zooming in photoshop. And the issue is that when i am working on a clients project and they want, for example,an image of a business woman looking over a computer.What happens is i find strong images but all size are cut off but maybe one side.I would... continue reading

In practical condition while shooting many times it is not possible to frame your subject as one is visualizing the shot. There may be number of reasons like the situation doesn't permit, limitation of lens zoom, the shortage of time to frame properly etc. My best advice to novice photographer always is take a breath & stop for 1 second before pressing the shutter button on the camera. After that do the followings:1. Look along all the corners & frame of your viewfinder & think once is it all... continue reading
As if there weren't enough things to think about, I recently started thinking about yet another aspect (pun intended) of stock photography: aspect ratio.I got a compact camera this Christmas and discovered that it was 4:3, rather than 3:2 as I'm used to with a DSLR.This has more impact than I would have thought:1. Taking pictures.I find myself taking a lot more photos in the 'landscape' orientation rather than 'portrait'.When taking photos of people I find the SLR ratio too wide unless... continue reading
