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

Hello!I'm now 25 years old and half of my life (since 12) I'm with camera in hands. The process of seeing the picture and finally taking it is something, that can't be divided from my life.But... for all these many years I was thinking of beauty or value of the moment that I try to stop, but some other aspects were not covered by me.In august 2012 I met a friend, who was doing stock photos and registered.

I stopped in front one of the front door to take the photo of the door. I was... continue reading
I wonder why some pics sell and why some don’tFor example compare the picture on the left and the one below.The sale for the first one is nill while the one below has 8 downloads.While the action depicted in both are same, the difference between them lies in the cap used.So can we say that the use of a skull cap made the difference?I think people select a picture based on what it stands for. Both the pictures show a man blowing a Shofar (which is usually done by the jews) and... continue reading

For the newbies who are already struggling to keep a decent AR and are not too comfortable with image processing, this can be really intimidating. And yet, assignments are fun and, more importantly, very educational.First of all, one... continue reading

I decided to get some Christmas pictures of the puppy!!Have you ever tried to get a 8 week old puppy to stay still?!?!? Let me tell you it was quite the experience.
