I love to travel and often do it.You could say I'm an avid traveler.Most of my photos I took while on the road. Of course I plan my trips and they have a clear destination. And Yes most often I shoot landmarks. This spring we all family traveled to Moscow. It was a one-day trip and we planned to visit the legendary Exhibition of achievements of the national economy and the Pushkin Museum of art.The main attraction of a visit to the legendary VDNCH was last renewed in the Space pavilion.... continue reading

Research your route and traveling locationIt is always good idea to research the location you are traveling to, but also the route you will be using to get there. Google for landmarks, viewpoints, natural beauties... Because anywhere you go there is something to photograph, but if you don't do your preparations the chances are that you will miss it. And some of them you will surely find on the road to your final destination. One such landmark is popular attraction from the photo below, Drina... continue reading
I left America in spring of 2016 to see the world, and I've been in a state of travel ever since. You might say I've been "on the road", and not just figuratively; many of my days are literally spent on a road, a rail, a river, or other thoroughfare on the way to a new destination. Because of that, landscapes from along my routes tend to dominate my subject matter. Early into this adventure, the sensory overload of new sights promoted some shutter-happy habits that I soon realized... continue reading
How to find great shots on the road: See a choice in the everyday life, not only tick off famous landmarks
We all know it: We look forward to visit a famous landmark and we do not have eyes for the very typical things that happens directly beside us. That’s how it was to me when I travelled. We originally planned to come in permitted time to the next designated target but then we had some small experiences. Allow me to introduce by way of example motifs shot from little market places with very characteristic/traditional offer and not special offering for tourists. Sometimes we decided to stop and... continue reading
Great shots happen when you least expect it. So whenever that inner instinct tells you “this can be a good shot”, just grab the camera and click. Rule number one, never click when the vehicle is on the move and you are driving. It can instead be a good opportunity to take pan shots (videos) if you are the co driver and the road is smooth. If you are in the car and while taking photographs, make it a point to roll down the window. A piece of glass in between your object and the camera... continue reading

Well... the most straightforward answer to that question would be: "Having the camera with you all the time" :) Which obvious as it may sound is not always the most easy thing to do. If you're driving, throwing your gear bag on the back seat is easy. But what if you're hiking, biking or simply you're without any vehicle? Then carrying a bulky backpack full of lenses and gear is not quite funny. You can use your phone, right. Well... no. I am using my iPhone for doing... continue reading

Customers aren't just looking for high fashion models. Many customers are looking for real people doing real things. I would consider myself more of a real life photographer. I don't pay my models usually, except for a few which I'll talk about later. This article is about how I get models and how I work with them and what seems to be selling. I have much to learn, but will share what I have learned as a newer photographer with Dreamstime.For this photo of the police officer woman,... continue reading
