On March this year I had an idea to travel around Erhai, which is located in Dali Yunnan China.It was a sunny day. The skywas blue and the airwas fresh. I leased a car and drove with my wife. We were so happy because that was what we wanted. It was noon time when we stopped at the small restaurant near the lake. I found there is a curvebeside the restaurant and the yellow flowers along the road. The brown mountain is in distance. I thought it was a good place to shoot. I needed... continue reading

It is a method to increase the sharpness, only on the edges, without creating a deterioration on the darker areas or full color.We bring our photograph on Photoshop and select the channels panel.Deselect all the channels, except green and duplicate.We go on> Filters> Stylize> Find Edges. The image will be like a drawing, showing only the edges. Now press ctrl + I to invert. It's like I created a mask (black areas), while the edges are white.Let's go to> Filter> Other> Maximum that allows you... continue reading
For thoose that don't know what a CPL filter [circular polarizer filter] is, I will try to explain what is it's purpose and you can decide on your own if you need it.Let's imagine this:"You just came back from your vacation on the seaside and you download your pictures from your camera. You look at them but you don't see that blue water that was right there beside you. You only see the reflection of the sunlight and you wonder: why is that? Where are the pictures with clear sea water, with clear... continue reading
I'm super happy with my new lens Tamron SP AF 70-200/2, 8 Di IF Macro for Nikon AF, takes great pictures in all conditions and is an affordable lens.Should you invest in a new lens so I recommend this lens, its without stabilizer, but if you can photograph technology so this does not make any significant without. continue reading
A lot of people ask me how I get the sky in my images to be so blue. While there are many variables involved in making the sky look natural, a polarizing filter can actually make the sky look more dramatic, and it's easy to learn how to use it properly.Basically, a polarizer can reduce reflections from objects such as water and glass and can be used to darken the sky and bring out the clouds, making the scene look much more vivid. It can also help reduce haze. For all normal lenses that have a... continue reading
I read an article on Infrared Photography aka IR Photography.Filters are difficult to get and very expensive.Has anyone achieved a similar, although probably not as perfect, effect with software or using other equipment?And no lol, I won't be stripping my camera and making it a only IR.Although I did hear that some of the older SLR's allow for it?I could get a second hand SLR, but I don't know.Any opinions on this?For anyone else who doesn't know what IR Photography is take... continue reading
Some months ago I got accepted an image, which was marked with the content filter. This of course I found out later on, when I was wondering, why the image has 0 views and it is not showing in my portfolio. It was not showing, because I had by a default set Content Filter ON.Being a newbie to Dreamstime, it took me a while to find out, that reason for image not showing is done by the Content Filter. So I changed my site features and turned the Content Filter OFF. For me, I want to have a choice... continue reading
A few days ago I did a search for some new approved images of mine to see if they were in the system yet.They all came up but one.I contacted the good folks at Dreamstime to inquire and was told it had been content filtered (I have my filter on).The image was a 70 year old photograph of a man and woman (my grandfather and my mom) on their farm holding shotguns and some pheasants they had just hunted.They said all images showing dead animals were content filtered.Maybe this could be disturbing... continue reading
