While in New York City last week for PhotoPlus Expo and the PACA (Picture Archive Council of America) International Conference, I attended a panel comprised of ‘Microstock SuperStars” moderated by PDN’s Daryl Lang. I heard some words of wisdom from the panel members that I thought might be useful to many of you.Panel member Yuri Arcurs emphasized the importance of building your brand within the overall site. He offered that an important aspect of his success is a consistent and identifiable... continue reading

What If?… Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century, was actually working with supernatural forces beyond imagination? … young Einstein, at the age of six, received an ancient compass from pre-history that changed the course of his life and upon which balanced the very destiny of Earth? … Einstein, a brilliant mathematician, was the reincarnation of a leading priest-scientist who lived during the time of Atlantis and whose twin brother, through a DNA experiment gone awry,... continue reading
Emerson says "Envy is ignorance, Imitation is Suicide." -- I learned the hard and painful way that comparing yourself with others - no matter what it is about - is simply torturing yourself and killing all your creativity.You may think this is being self-righteous but since I stopped trying to imitate other artists I become much more creative because I've felt free -- the feeling of that freedom gave me the freedom of creativity. I admire fellow artists works but I don't envy.... continue reading
People always like photos with special angle. Certainly bird's-eye view is a very unique angle since only God has that perspective :-)1. Don't hesitate to buy a ticket to go up high. In many places, there are some top or high buildings that you could have the bird's view; but you have to buy a ticket to enter it and sometimes it is expensive. If you truly want to take some special photos you should pay for it, and it is worthy, the return will be good. I once visited Las Vegas,... continue reading
Photography is an art of representation of an object in the form of image by recording light or image sensor. It is the reflection of any particular entity. In this modern era learning and practicing photography is a craft and a profession. It showcases the artistic and creative nature of the individual. It is understandable that the photographer’s artistic quality and his/her choices are manifested by the photo he graphed in any form. Some people might ponder and rethink multifariously.But... continue reading
I've worked in the ad industry for over fourteen years, and like most Art Director's, I prefer a photo shoot over purchasing stock. This is the uphill battle that all stock photographers face, and it's a big one.Stock photography can be dirty words to an Art Director. There is a sea of mediocrity in the stock photo world, and that's the last thing he or she wants to use in their designs.A great idea can make a campaign, but a poor photo can break it. I look for images that stand... continue reading
In the contest " Devil of the details " (the first contest on Dreamstime that I joined), I was on 4th place, really close to 3th place and this made me want even more, to participate to the next contest. So, in the contest " Wallpapers " I maximized my chances with 9 photos uploaded. This time, I have uploaded photos and illustration with different thematic. I realized that, even if, I don't win, the contests helps a lot in making my account and photos visible by... continue reading
I’ve noticed that my keeper rate is abysmal, as in 10% or less, abysmal. That’s a bit discouraging, which points to a problem in how I’m taking photos. Why do I end up with so few good shots? (And it is a problem when you spend hours taking photos, and in post-processing, to end up with 19 out of 100 shots.)So why? A few reasons came to mind. Reasons 1. Taking way more shots than I’ll ever keep. I err on the side of more is better, which adds to time in post-process, but I figure... continue reading
It's was a sunny morning and the ground was wet. In the corner,the moss was growing with active life. And the pathway, the pathway was covering with the high trees.When I walked along the quiet pathway, the water on the leaves dropped on my head. And I lift my head, there was a leaf being ate and just being left the vein.It was a so special leaf... There were so many leaves on the morning day, but just this one attracted my attention.With the cracked leaf, I got a special view to watch the... continue reading

Some enjoy the moment, while giving the content within the frame much thought, and others do it as a habit and such has currently become a trend.Acting and believing the act, that's what photo making seems to be heading towards.
