The sleeping beauty in chaos

I was encouraged to write this article, I thought I can do it too, I have so much to say, and I know exactly what I want to say, I want to tell you about a recent visit to an abandoned factory in the place where I live; being there made me feel many feelings mixed happiness, sadness, and above all a huge curiosity to know how everything ended in ruins? It was a gradual process, of course everything happened slowly before the eyes of many who simply stopped looking in the place Right.I am one of those... continue reading

Wayag Raja Ampat, Hidden Tropical Paradise

So guys, this is the unknown beauty.. Amazing crystal sea in an island which was called the black island. It's called so because 200 years ago, it was still the unknown, untouchable by the outsiders.

Content filter - Image *dead sentence* ?

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

I find there is always a photo hidden in there somewhere.

Often an image is hiding in the overall scene somewhere - details that I miss and pass by without noticing.So what I do, generally, to find these hidden gems, is to look for contrast between elements, find strong graphic shapes, repetitive patterns, and prominent; often primary colours.I don't stop at the first image, but continue shooting, at the same time refining the image by changing camera angle slightly, getting closer or change lenses to eliminate the distractions between subject &... continue reading
