This article is describing the technique I'm using to achieve high quality extreme macro photos, for magnifications beyond 3x, up to 10x (possible up to 20x).This means that the subject frame is between 3 and 20 times smaller than the physical sensor dimensions (i.e. 22.2mm for APS-C).This also means that creatures even below a few millimeters in real life, can almost fill the whole screen, revealing amazing, incredible details, unknown to the naked eye!Here are... continue reading

Here is the collection:Collection - SymmetryFrom an earlier blog - looking for man made images that are symmetrical.

Normally I thinkthey would have been ineligible without model / property releases.... continue reading

So I think I will keep writing :)Whatever...Altough I’m not a professor or expert on studio lighting, I want to write about “shadow-less object / product photography”. You know we generally put our objects on a white seamless paper or anything like that and whenever we click the shutter, there is a shadow on the ground.

It was already been a long trip, even knowing that i have started uploading for just a month now.Got angry and desapointed with my self with the first rejections.The lack of experience at the stock images world is surely a great barrier to be transpassed.But i have been taken my time to meditate and learn from my mistakes, as well from my colleages contributors at the forum.So as a little child experiencing something new on each and every day, i started to learn.... continue reading
