Ellen Boughn offering inexpensive mini-consults

Now that I've finished my book about microstock photography,I've decided to offer microstock photographers a relatively inexpensive consulting service (a mini-consult) for $39.00to satisfy that need and to generate some scratch.So far since I started this program a few weeks ago, I've reviewed portfolios. Helped photographers isolate and concentrate on their strong... continue reading

Industrial Strength

Sixty percent of world trade is comprised of heavy industry and businesses in the engineering sector.Images of oil and gas industries, shipbuilding, power plants, mining, and others such as steel, cement and iron fabrication are required for news and editorial uses especially now that the cost of raw materials is in the headlines daily. Annual reports are another final use of images of heavy industry. Every complex process involves hundreds of supplier of component parts and these companies need... continue reading

New ideas for textures and backgrounds

Hi everyone,I was thinking about some new ideas for backgrounds and textures, but also about images that can easily be incorporated into websites and magazines, and eve commercials. This time I took a more minimalistic approach, even artistic, to create those images.I came up with some interesting pictures of a tuna can from above, some office stuff and some coins. Since I'm still learning my here I have decided to share those ideas and see the reactions to them. I'm all for sharing and learning... continue reading

How can we improve customer satisfaction?

A couple of days ago the picture below was sold. By now it has been sold 5 times. So, I started to wonder "who is interested in a picture like that?".As a contributor we know very little about the buyers (only via sales). At the same time the whole collection of searches done by buyers contains a lot of relevant information. There exist data mining algorithms that reveal that kind of information. It would be nice if contributors would know about this. It would create a win-... continue reading

Remembering Yitzhak Rabin

Twenty years ago, on November 4, 1995, Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in Tel Aviv.The Israeli warrior and prime minister died after being shot at the conclusion of a peace rally during a heated election campaign.Rabin was not at ease with the media and uncomfortable at staged events and photo sessions.Unfortunately, this showed in his awkward and stiff expressions and body language.If you were patient and had quick reflexes, you might get lucky and catch him at a good moment.Rabin... continue reading

Photos That Bring Back Memories

The other day I saw some old classic cars that brought back some good memories for me. The car in the background is an Austin 1100 and was the first car that I ever drove. The Ford Escort MK1 was the car that I passed my test in at 17. My families car was a Mini Clubman. I bought a Triumph TR7 when I was in my early twenties for £475. Although this is actually a TR8 as it has the Rover 3500 engine. continue reading

Dreamstime Collections and My Images

Minimalism

I found it very interesting to do such research. I hope this is of help and I hope I volgiate help in this research.Beyond the differences, the works belonging to this current, all of a marked rigorous execution, are composed of a few elements, essential to adopt a lexicon, are presented as a variation of the primary elements, forms pure, simple, with a coloring that coincides with that of the materials.The formal matrix of such creations, characterized by the complete absence of decoration, is... continue reading

Gold mining with cyanide in Romania

The quarries would destroy four mountain peaks and three villages out 16 in the municipality. But the biggest scare for rights activists and environmentalists is the... continue reading

Tips on capturing a stunning backlit portrait

Dramatic back-lighting from the sun and the golden flares that flood your viewfinder can give you an incredible image. Not only that, the mood of your photo is vastly different from portraits, there’s a warm, feminine feel to this, and your artistic flexibility is truly unlimited.I like to get these shots late in the afternoon, I generally use a wide aperature which creates a great buttery bokeh on the background. It’s also a good idea to have only part of the sun viewable and keep the majority... continue reading
