Color corrected light, product photography and RAW mode

Dear all,Few silly questions here.I like to try product photography lately. What I heard is all light sources have to be same temperature/color.1)So I would like to know is there any impact of lighting (if they are in different temp/color) in final image if I shoot in RAW mode and adjust the white balance in photo-shop light-room?2)On the lamp, color temperature is mentioned as 5500K but how do I know it is really 5500K? Is there any way to check this?3) Anyway to shoot so that background... continue reading

How do you get into the mode of taking stock photos?

I have uploaded Many photos and so far only 8 have been accepted. I'm not getting discouraged, as I'm going to get this. But I'm leaving this Thursday to go to the UP of Michigan, Munising to be exact for my sister's wedding. Since I apparently don't get this "stock" photo concept yet, I don't want to waste my time and photos on what I "think" will be accepted. I want to take photos that more than likely will be accepted. I may not have the best camera in the world but it is better than what I had.... continue reading

Canadian Lawyer

My girlfriend works for Éducaloi, a non-profit organization which mission is to inform Quebecers of their rights and obligations by providing quality legal information in everyday language. One day, we were discussing stock photography and she explain to me how difficult it was to find photos of Canadian lawyer to use in their projects. I thought for sure that the subject was well covered in stock photo website, but surprisingly, we couldn’t find onephoto. It’s important to explain that Canadian... continue reading

Manual focusing - increases purely accepted works!

Nine arguments in favor of manual focusing:1. MacroDoing macro-shootinglens it is usually located very close tosubject. And consequently the auto-focus mechanism can precisely find out not always that place which is important for you in macro-shooting. And depth of sharpness sometimes so is small that can to be displaced from simple trembling of hands.2. MovementI think, not one even the modern ultrasonic auto- focusingmotor can't compete to you if it isquestion of shootings... continue reading

Make your images pop with blending modes

If you're like me, sometimes what comes out of your camera and onto your monitor isn't quite what you had in mind when you took the photo. Sometimes the image might look a bit flat or dull, despite playing with curves or levels in Photoshop.Have you ever tried the blending modes? They can really add something dynamic to an image. So where do you find blending modes? When you open an image in Photoshop, you'll automatically have a background layer in the Layers palette. You won't see the blending... continue reading

Auto modes versus manual

I wrote this blog on my own blog a while back, but reading Rebecca's post today made me think of this again and thought it would be useful on DT:My mother is taking a course on photography and she was commenting on how her teacher was touting the advantages of shooting in manual. While I am no stranger to manual I really think this argument is directed to people who set the camera to program and then don't notice what settings the camera picks. This is a crucial point - there is not an iota of... continue reading

Exposure compensation and Metering mode

In lots of article and books I have seen that exposure compensation depends on the color, and of course 18% grey and blah blah. Now, my realization is it also depends on the metering mode. Let say your metering mode is Spot, so you just need to worry about 2-3 % of the image, if its evaluative or matrix then you need worry about the complete image, 100%. So in case Sport your headache is less as you are worrying about only a tiny portion of your picture and in case evaluative you should worry about... continue reading
