Invention needed

Here’s something that I need invented, if anyone gets the chance: a time machine that fast forwards me to the last ten minutes of a photography trip, and then adds all the preceding time onto the end. The reason for my request is that whenever I go out and about with my camera I spend the first part of outing either taking no photos at all, or taking bad shots. Then, when I have about ten minutes left, either I light upon something that I would be happy to photograph for hours, or suddenly... continue reading

How do we know what type of pictures are needed?

That is the million dollar question and albeit not an easy one to answer.It has been a while since I last wrote a blog article.I am not one to write about stuff that does not provide other contributors with useful information, suggestions or tips.I have spent the last year in Shanghai China and have used this opportunity to increase my portfolio with a number of pictures from Asia.   As we all have gone through a change in the way we take pictures from an artistic perspective to... continue reading

The best equipment is not always needed

I have just had my first image reach level four. The surprising thing about this is that is was not taken on a DSLR. It was taken on an old Minolta digital camera, when digital was still quite new and I was trying it out. There is a lot of talk about equipment needed, but I believe the composition is the main thing. I wouldn't change my current DSLR set up, but it is possible to get good results with lesser equipment. continue reading

To collage or not to collage. Designer opinions needed please.

I've seen several post in the boards about collages and I had a question. Would it be better to make collages of a single subject or have multiple single shots of different angles?I'm a little confused on this because I'm not sure what designers like more. Also since we're limited to the size of file we are allowed to upload, wouldn't that limit the amount or size of the images in a collage? In this respect a single image at a larger size would be better, right?If anyone knows please leave... continue reading

Stock Images needed vs. Selling the Rights

I was happy to see that today I made my first SR-EL sale. I was curious to see what image it actually was. To my surprise it was a photo of one of our cats (similar to the one shown here) that sold 8 times over the course of 2 years prior to selling the rights.The photo in question had been rejected in many agencies with the reason that the image was not "sharp" enough.I hope this shows that for those choosing to sell images through multiple agencies that each agency has different requirements... continue reading

Editing advice needed!

How many of us worry constantly not of our composition, subject matter, or ideas. but rather, we worry about "did I apply too much color saturation? Not enough saturation? or the dreaded "Image over filtered" rejection? poor lighting set up, etc... Does anyone out there have any tips for us novice types on a proper way to remove blemishes, logos, unwanted elements in a photo, etc that will not get us rejected? I mainly us "auto" buttons to hopefully fall within the contrast and levels criteria for... continue reading
