Lighting issues with shooting macro.

It seems that I still have a lot to learn about lighting. And if I had the opportunity and lived in a location to get some education about this, I definitely would. So I'm writing this for others that are in a similar boat (here's an oar).I am new to stock and really wish I could see what the reviewers see as faults. I've taken two pictures using the same lighting, similar composition and the same adjustments. One picture gets accepted and the other rejected due to poor lighting. I'm using the... continue reading

Freeze toilet bowl water in action (Those who hate to scrub toilet bowls, read this.)

Anyone wants to try to take water in action? I must say I took a long time to get this right. My first image was rejected for incorrect exposure. It was hard for me to take this image at night with the toilet lights on, so I waited til day to take this shot.I had a problem. There was no place for me to put my gorillapod. I was literally holding onto my breath, trying to take a shot in one hand while flushing the toilet in the other. The results were... you know...Then I had an idea. I brought... continue reading

My Photography Experience

I have joined DT since 2004 and I must say I am one of the few thousand photographers in DT then. I used a Canon Powershot A80 point-and-shoot camera to shoot all my previous photographs without any tripod or artificial lighting, all using natural light coming from my home window. At that time, DT did not have this function called Acceptance ratio. These are the few photographs I have taken.The blackberries were taken closeup (literally bringing my camera near) in a plastic case placed on top... continue reading

My first attempts at studio images

As can be seen from my PF, for anyone interested in taking a look, the majority of my images are nature/wildlife related and I make use of what lighting, composition and subject matter are naturally available to me. That said, I did try my hand at some still life images (first time) not that long ago and here are some of the uplodaded results. Although not as polished, well lit or composed as some of my fellow submitters here on DT (whose images are shown) I am fairly happy with the results and can... continue reading

So much easier!

I often struggle with lighting on my photos; particularly those taken indoors. The layout of my house is not so good, and our weather is often so dark and dreary that very little light comes in the windows anyway. Sometimes it is so dark that the best shutter speed I can get (to allow for the depth of field I want) with natural light is 5 seconds!I have a hotshoe flash, and have tried bouncing it off the ceiling, and using white paper to try and bounce the light back. Sometimes this works ok,... continue reading

Full Body Isolation - A Quick Tutorial

So anyone who has submitted to microstock for more then a couple weeks already knows that one of the most popular styles of imagery offered here is the Isolated Model over white.While it is not horribly difficult it does take some skill to master and without a little guidance the trial and error involved in finding the right balance can be frustrating and time consuming.Like anything else in photography there are many different ways to arrive at the end product but atVegas Vision... continue reading

It’s Been Framed!

Continuous advances in cameras, especially digital ones have made the science easier, so in theory anyone should be able to catch that perfect picture!I have to admit I was upset when digital cameras first came out and thought it would destroy the soul of photography.All of our special exclusive film club knowledge would be obliterated, as our prehistoric knowledge would now only be read about on some obscure museum wall.However, now we have low quality .jpg and .gif files and pixel artifacts... continue reading
