Dramatic angles

 I love dramatic angles ! This Aldabra tortoise is the perfect subject to photograph from unusual angles. This reptile seems to come from the jurassic times and has got incredible textures. The fact that its a very slow moving animal helps a lot... continue reading

The WOW factor step one-consider your subject

I am excited to be taking my first online photography class with Jim Zuckerman and better photo.com. The class I chose is 8 steps to more dramatic photography.Our first lesson was on selecting great subjects.And the assignment?Submit examples of great subjects paired with similar subjects that are not so great.It sounded deceptively simple, but when I closely reviewed the assignment and the lesson, I had difficulty determining what makes a great subject great.I used some photos from... continue reading

Southern Europe - dramatic but oh so beautiful

One hears a lot of talk these days about Southern Europe: Greece, Spain, Italy. Unfortunately most of this talk is rather negative, it's almost always about the dramatic economic situation these countries are in.I just wanted to remind you all that there's more to them than a troubled economy... they're simply amazingly beautiful!It's even hard to understand how such beautiful countries can be in such dire straits, with all the tourists that they draw in.I... continue reading

Message in picture 1

Hi,this blog is for those who want to say something with their pictures. Of course and for everyone else:) I was thinking first what to shoot, what picture can say more then just "look at me" and then,forget me. I wanted picture with message, symbolic picture, and I got it. My idea was to show you in one picture man or woman in here world fighting from stress, pollution and other bad things. So I tried. At beginning it was hard I didn't know how, but then I realized, I can put those things together... continue reading

Making the Most of Your Images

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to capture some pretty decent shots of seagulls. Nothing earth shattering but I liked them. I played around with the second one in PhotoShop because I liked the fact that the bird was looking right at you and the pose was very dramatic.Here are the images I made:To my surprise and delight these three images reached level 2 in less then 5 days. I guess it didn't hurt that it was just before Easter, but they are still selling well now. It just goes... continue reading

My First Sale with Dreamstime

This image is My First Sale with Dreamstime and it happens to be one of my all time Favorites.The reason is that for me it was the first time I was able to achieve an image that I have dreamed of... Having a Dramatic Mirror Effect.And to think.... it almost never happened.The day I shot this, I almost left the area not thinking any good images would come of this time and place.I had looked thru my zoom lens and it just was not showing that great of an image for me. I thought I better move... continue reading

Photographing Horses - A Unique Perspective

Horses are majestic creatures.Their powerful size alone demands your respect.Its not easy getting a close up shot.What I've discovered is if the goal is to capture horse portraits or head shots the trick is to get the proper shot angle.Horses have large odd shaped heads and they stand significantly taller than most humans.Most of the time a photographer ends up shooting up or at the same level as the animal.Sometimes this will distort the horse's muzzle or give unflattering results.... continue reading

What makes an image dramatic?

We have all seen images that stop us in our tracks. What makes an image impactful and dramatic? Is it our own sense of personal beauty? Undoubtable creating or taking an image based upon classic rules of composition, color, exposure etc, play a very important part, I believe we all have something inside that resonates with certain images. I personally have an affection for black and white landscapes. I love the freedom they convey. With that said, I want to thank all of the photographers, designers... continue reading
