A Sense of Place (Part II)

Before you arrive in a new location, do research. Looking at map is not enough. Nor are guidebooks necessary the only printed form of information at your fingertips. Get a compass so that you will be able to anticipate how the light will be at different times in the day in different locations. If your shooting location is near the tidal zones, look up the tide charts. Read as much as you can about the place not just in guidebooks but go to the web archives of travel magazines to learn what's new.... continue reading

It is so easy in this hectic world to forget to stop occasionally and look outside ourselves for ways to give our fellow man a hand up every now and then.Since 1992, the fourth Saturday of October has been set aside as a National Day of Service meant to encourage average Americans to commit this one-day out of their lives to helping others.Make a Difference Day will be observed on October 28th this year.            And while service can be done by anyone at anytime, having... continue reading

Looking at things a different way

 I was lucky enough to have a day off from work a few days ago, (as this is not yet a full time job for me yet) and decide to go somewhere local with my camera and see what i could find.I went to a park in Solihull, which i had been to many times before, but never with my camera.There i discovered in the woods down a little road a beautiful little church.Yes i had seen the signs for it before but had never bothered to walk down there.However after having my first sale, i tend to take my camera... continue reading

A different point of view

As photographers we walk about looking at the world from a more artistic point of view.As stock photographers our view can be more varied.We see possibilities in scenes that most photographers pass by without a second glance.The problem is most of us look at our visions from one point of view...eye level.I have been guilty of this more thank I care to admit to.  What if we try looking at things from a different perspective? Change our point of view. Both of these images were... continue reading

First smartphone pic sale

Today I got my first sale of a picture I had made with a Nokia lumia 1020 smartphone,it shows a rare Aesculapian snake resting on a branch.During a few months I was only shooting and uploading with the 1020, many photos got rejected and I wondered if I would ever sell any. Meantime I went back to "normal " shooting with my SLR but the whole thing shows that it is indeed possible to sell photos made with a smartphone.   continue reading
