Images of refreshing beverages, both alcoholic and otherwise are used for purposes as diverse as major ads and invitations to small parties. The virtues of drinking eight glasses of water daily may have come under scrutiny recently but no one argues with the importance of water and other healthy liquids in a sane diet. Images of fit individuals taking in a daily allotment of fluids are used in promotions for dietary supplements, health clubs, juices and bottled water as well as for editorial pieces... continue reading

Truth in advertising requires ads to present the benefits and qualities of their products in an honest fashion. Of course, advertising has a very loose relationship to reality especially in the manner in which women are pictured. Advertisers recognize that women are responsible solely or as important decision makers on most family purchases as well as being big spenders on furniture, clothing and travel. The image of a strong and confident woman has replaced the white haired CEO type as a spokesperson... continue reading
You know who you are, Generation Y. An analysis of Internet and social network use tells me that a majority of you reading this were born between 1977 and 1997. You are the children of the last of the baby boomers and the most studied group of young adults anywhere because you generally have money and business wants to talk you out of it. Don’t despair if you are outside Gen Y, as all generations need to recognize the unique characteristics of this group in order to completely cover the photographic... continue reading
Commuter patterns have changed dramatically over the past few months as individuals cut back on driving both to save gas money and to protect the environment just as other countries such as India and China begin a love affair with the automobile. Both of these eventshave created photographic opportunities.Bike commuting is down in some countries in Asia while up many percentage points in western countries.Dreamstime needs images of bicycle riders that are obviously on their way to the office... continue reading
In six days I leave for Ethiopia. Each time I go to Africa, I have to reassess what I’m carrying with me. Did I use it last time? How much use was it to me? Is there something better I could be using next time?This is my tenth trip to Africa in less than seven years. I’m a missionary, and on most trips (though not this one) my primary purpose is documentation. You may have other reasons for shooting, but the basic equipment list will be the same, except for the choice of lenses. Over... continue reading
Ready, set, quit! Oh, if it were only that easy.Every year on the third Thursday in November, this year falling on the 16th, the American Cancer Society sponsors The Great American Smoke Out as a way to get people committed to living a tobacco free life.When the event first began in the early 1970’s, the message to smokers was to use a specific date to commit to quitting cold turkey.Since then, research has shown that a smoking addiction is an extremely tough one to break and... continue reading
In the previous blog I wrote about things that make us recharge our batteries. So, here is a short story about a trekking escape that I have done recently.The most convenient (time and distance) trails are in the Bucegi Mountains, which are part of the Romanian Carpathians. Whether by car or train, we can reach the bottom of the route in two and a half hours. This is a pretty fast way to escape to nature, leaving behind the city tumult. So, there I was, with my friends, in Busteni... continue reading
Many of us love to pick our own food. Some of us even grow it. I moved to Finland recently and one of the country's rule made me very happy: One can pick whatever berry or edible mushroom from any forest they wish. They call this “Every man’s right” and it means that one can walk freely in the forest (no matter who owns it).I love walking in the forest. I love the sound of the wind, the trees voices howling, the rays of sun passing through the trees, coloring everything in gold. Therefore... continue reading
It's hard to say how many people really love their work. At least, not all of my colleagues have to work because they have to earn money to pay for the apartment fee,pay their children's tuition,and enjoy the entertainment and so on...I could hear so much complaint in the work although sometimes I was also one of them: the boring work because of repeat issue happen again,challenge from other function without any reasonable, no justification customer...There is 24H one day and usually I work in... continue reading
This article is describing the technique I'm using to achieve high quality extreme macro photos, for magnifications beyond 3x, up to 10x (possible up to 20x).This means that the subject frame is between 3 and 20 times smaller than the physical sensor dimensions (i.e. 22.2mm for APS-C).This also means that creatures even below a few millimeters in real life, can almost fill the whole screen, revealing amazing, incredible details, unknown to the naked eye!Here are a few examples:... continue reading
