'How' is important more than in 'What' Being a novice stock photographer we have may face many problems as economically, lack of proper device and equipment and so on as we are new to stock photography. But according to my point of view being a budding photographer we shouldn’t blame our situation. I like to remember a famous line given to a novice. That is, ‘start with what you have, where are you and do what you can’. This is golden rule to become... continue reading
Search results for "idea"
Hi all, I just was browsing aroud in search of "ideas" concept and found that being a stock photographer is like having an idea and willing to get it approved, just like being in office and trying to get rid of the chief to have a preferment...Well, and I personally speak to new like me here on Dreamstime... your passion is first your propeller. If you're not a native landscape photographer, your pictures never reach a satisfying quality to sell sufficiently if compared to an expert landscape... continue reading
Have you ever seen images in places so exotic, with subjects so amazing that you wish you could be in the photographer's shoes? Well guess what, you already are there! We've all experienced it - the "Photographer's Block" - that feeling that there is nothing to photograph! Well, how about a little trip, to the market? To be honest, I was never one for any street photography, as I am always hesitant in bringing the camera up to a stranger's face. So instead, I take pictures of the things... continue reading
After you've been traveling for a while, you start to accumulate many random kick-knacks from batiks to bowls. And your friends and family may sigh and say "yet another _______"? The truth is, when you have traveled, a lot souvenirs start to look the same. I've found very similar socks and mittens in both Kathmandu and Peru which made me question about where my gifts are actuallycoming from.For me souvenirs are a little bit about the culture, not something that's mass replicated.So what... continue reading
My significant other sent me a cartoon today, of a waiter stopping by a couples' table. Is everything OK madam? he asked.I noticed you have not photographed your food...I had to laugh because I am notorious for taking photos of food before anyone is allowed to eat, be it at our favorite restaurant or in our own kitchen. So when Gary came home with a basket of fresh peaches, my first thought was NOT wow what delicious food can I make with these? No, first thought was hmmm what pictures can I create... continue reading
Have you asked yourself this question before? If not, I think you have not been serious in stock photography. Or, I would say, you have not played hard. A lot of professionals have written about how to improve picture qualities. I have not seen any topics about how to take a lot of pictures. I think quantity is as important as quality in stock photography. You need a lot a lot of pictures to make a lot of sales! Don't forget, average sale only makes about $1. When I had hundreds of photos online,... continue reading
Metaphors in photography are very exciting. I love to do a representation of a person, place, thing, or idea in a visual image. It rather comes naturally in to my mind when i see it or at the post production stage when i can focus, look and think about particular shot :)I was simply playing with a plastic bottle and a candle and this idea came in to my mind :) self expressing image i think. Here I saw destructive power of machine against the nature so i called it total destruction...... continue reading
Did you know, that decorated Christmas tree – is probably the most magical holiday tradition ever. If you feel lack of something in your life – you MUST put the symbol of it on your tree (the symbol should be maximum realistic or even it may be the real thing, for example, if you need more money – dress your tree with some large denominations). Another useful way to attract some good changes to your life is to put at least one new ornament. It can be just a chocolate sweet, but new... continue reading
If you are looking for a great idea of unusual, unexpectable and unforgettable Christmas gift – you’ve probably found it. The “gift video” is not a scientific term, it is just a comfortable definition of the short clip, made for some one on some special occasion.The most familiar example of such a gift can be photo slideshow with the recipient’s favourite music background. Such videos are usually very simple in production and can look very sweet, but if you really wantto surprise... continue reading
