Ultra Violet and the food

My workmate Ioana wrote here about the color of the year 2018. And this is an interesting article, trust me.I don't know about you, but I am as happy as a kid eating a huge ice cream because Ultra Violet is the one for the next year. I love violet so much that one of my home walls is painted in this color. My husband made me a surprise and chose this color for one of the living room's walls. I used it many time as a background for my food photos. Anyway, I am not here to write about interior... 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

5 Reasons Stock Photography is a great option for Amateur Photographers

I hadn’t given much thought to stock photography or micro-stock photography because as a photography enthusiast I thought it was an area where only the Pros got to hang out and get paid a lot. I’ve since changed my tune. When I received a few inquiries on my Instagram (@thisgirlwithcamera) asking whether I sold my images. My initial reaction was, “What? Really? Someone is willing to pay for my images?” That’s when I decided that it might be worth looking into stock photography... continue reading

Can You Make a Living From Stock Photography?

This is a question my parents ask me all the time, right before they insert the annoying phrase, “maybe you should get a real job”. You see, they’re old fashioned and grew up in a time when careers were the norm, together with a stable pension. The world has changed considerably and the pace of change is accelerating.Nowadays, it’s not only much easier to become your own boss but it’s expected! Stock photography is just a small part of the much larger ‘gig economy’, where traditional... continue reading

Packing Efficiently For Shooting In Developing Nations.

In six days I leave for Ethiopia. Each time I go to Africa, I have to reassess what I’m carrying with me. Did I use it last time? How much use was it to me? Is there something better I could be using next time?This is my tenth trip to Africa in less than seven years. I’m a missionary, and on most trips (though not this one) my primary purpose is documentation. You may have other reasons for shooting, but the basic equipment list will be the same, except for the choice of lenses. Over... continue reading

Stock Photography Facts

The concept of stock photography is beautiful, in its essence: taking pictures for passion, without clients' request, and trying to sell them afterwards to those who might be interested in purchasing them for various uses. It sure has variations, depending on each photographer and the market as a whole, but the basic concept is beautiful and, in a way, pure: passion first, business second.I have always dreamed about taking only the photos I want, without ever having to worry about the money.... continue reading
