Learning from the Masters: Where to Look at Fine Art Photographs

   As a photographer, you’ll never stop learning. However, it is sometimes challenging to find new places or new people to learn from. That is doubly true if you're unsure where to find quality photographs. The Internet is filled with websites and galleries that are open to everyone – Flickr.com is one example. Because anyone can post images, you'll soon find that it isn't easy to sift the snapshots and amateur images from the works of art. So where do you turn to advance your knowledge... continue reading

How to prepare your stock photo for Dreamstime assignment

How can you get a photo approved for Dreamstime assignment?Well...it's not very easy, neither difficult, if you do have certain patience and technique. For this latest assignment my photo below was approved, but I had several tries/photos, until this one.
