Happy Belated Be Late for Something Day

Did you know that September 5th is (was?) “National Be Late for Something Day”?As a person who is impossibly early in a fashionably late-running world, I thought I would embrace the holiday to see if I could find the advantage that the rest of the populated planet seems to have found but that I just haven’t yet uncovered.    So, here it goes.After a day of exhaustive research, I can attest that the benefits to being late are …………Who am I kidding?I just can’t do it.... continue reading

How To Take Great Pictures of Flowers

The photo (below) in this post of the Snowdrops in my backyard turned out very well. (See the full frame photo in my portfolio). But, it wasn't necessarily going to happen without a bit of planning before snapping the shutter.Here are a few simple steps to consider when you are walking by a nice setting of flowers in order to increase the chances of taking a great shot.If you simply photograph the flowers from waist height you would find that the angle is too high and the distance too great.... continue reading

Creating Professional Stock Photos with Amateur Models

I’ve shot micro-stock with both professional and amateur models; there are pros and cons with both.Theoretically the professionals hit the ground running; they know how to pose, aren’t shy and understand the photo shoot dynamic. But there are also disadvantages. You tend to hire pro models on the strength of their online portfolios which are sometimes misleading with older photos. I’ve had my fair share of ‘surprises,’ shall I say.But I’m making the case here for shooting with amateurs,... continue reading

Getting the most out of a photo shoot

Hi DT'ersI, like many others have recently been making a significant effort to improve my downloads.There doesn't seem to be an one size fits all answer, but effort in does equal reward out, as with most things in life that are worth doing.A friend and I often plan a morning on a weekend to go to a particular location and get some shots for stock and for pleasure (theres a difference it seems).We typically end up with 10-20 good shots that look great on a website generic nice photos, but... continue reading

The Benefits of Winging a Trip

I want to talk to you about the benefits of just 'winging' your next big travel trip. I've come to really enjoy traveling this way, and will show you how a road trip through the national parks of the United States looked in about 29 days.I had built up a list of places I've seen, as an aspiring landscape photographer, that seemed very photogenic, and after plotting some of the nearest ones to me on a map, it became very quickly apparent how easy it could be to see them all, at once.The trip... continue reading

Finally 150 items online!!

Today is the day I finally got 150 images online.That makes me happy and hungry to upload more, but it took me a couple of months to get this far.As said before, mostly because of my fathers medical problems, but also because of a lot of refusals (most of them because of illustrations I made and/or vector files I uploaded and some diffulties with finding correct keywords) ... I'm trying to learn the designing software Inkscape, but find it rather difficult. I have less problems understanding... continue reading
