To Free or Not to Free? Are You Sure That “Free Stock Photo” You Downloaded is Safe To Use?

It’s been common knowledge for quite some time that photographs, illustrations and visual representations in general are simply must-haves for any web domain, social media account or promotional campaign.Using attractive visuals was already an important tactic for traditional, offline magazines, but it’s relevance has been magnified by the online environment. To point out just a hint, Facebook posts including images drive twice as much engagement as a simple text status, while tweets with photos... continue reading

Stock Media Is NOT The Demise of Professional Photography

While pursuing certification in commercial photography, I had the *good fortune of encountering a disgruntled photograher turned instructor who insisted that stock media is ruining the professional photography industry. I beg to differ! This moaner also begrudges smart phones with cameras, people with smart phones with cameras, digital cameras, and innovation of most kinds. I gave examples in his photography studio business management class of how, as a blogger since 2008, I used stock media on blog... continue reading

To Shop or not to Shop – How will you spend Black Friday?

To Macro or not to Macro

 Some years ago I followed a course from a famous Dutch photographer. Well, he won some cool prices, but I didn't know anything about Dies Groot.Until I followed the course that is. And I must say it was great to see so many like-minded people crammed together in one room, talking about photos in general and judging eachother works. I was scared about my showing my work, since - well - I love making photos, but I never considered craeting a job out of it. Luckily for me, they did like my... continue reading

Tripod or not? Learnt my lessons!

Basically I am not very fond of tripods. On rare occasions you need one and still you have to carry them around all the time. Another reason for not liking them is the lack of flexibility in positioning the camera (for example, horizontal or vertical, or the position I want to take). So, I never take a tripod with me.Coming back from Xi'an in China I noticed that in the hall of the Terracotta Army quite a few pictures had an ISO value of 6400 or close to it. And that the Shutter Speed I choose... continue reading

Promoting Others, Not Just Yourself

I was raised to love my neighbor as myself. I think of my fellow photographers on Dreamstime here as my neighbors. One of the ways I try to show love to my neighbors here on Dreamstime is to help promote their pictures. I have a Twitter account that is set up just for my business. Twitter can be fun because it's kind of neat to see what is trending on any given day. Then I do a search on my portfolio to see if I have a picture that might go with what is trending. If I do, then I will post that... continue reading

Sometimes bad weather is not so bad

The popular belief is that you can only take good photos on sunny days, but a day with storm clouds can give a dramatic and expressive atmosphere to a place that on sunny days is not so attractive to photograph,To take the picture of the first image, I simply measured the exposure in the clear area of the sky, that way everything else in the picture is dark, accentuating the silhouette of the city that is not important to detail in the composition and giving more Importance to bad weather clouds... continue reading
