How to Make a Surreal "Inception-Like" Dreamscape

JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, raw? Or Do I Look Like I Know What a JPEG Is?

Let’s assume you are a simple propane salesman and you desperately need a picture of a hot dog. You go to your favorite stock site, dreamstime.com, and find an image of a tasty looking hot dog. You are then given a bunch of options for download: A JPEG, PNG and a TIFF. Why are there so many different options? Before talking about specific file types, let’s talk about compression.

Your photo looks like doo doo

There's nothing more inviting or appetizing than an awesome food photo. Food photography is something to savor... continue reading

Thinking like a Stock Photographer : Thoughts from the Edge

 I've been thinking about my content and photo projects a lot recently. I'm usually pretty busy... I have a full time day job, a girlfriend, I shoot bands, and like everyone else, I'm swamped with a million little things.This is NOT a complaint. It just means I have to really work hard to make the effort for all the stock photo stuff in my life. You have to really want to do stock photography. It's rarely glamourous. It's often tedious. There's keywording, editing, time in lightroom, time spent... continue reading
