Sourcing, Scaling, and Sizing Stock on Slides

When you license stock photo images from Dreamstime, you are offered a choice of image sizes and resolutions at different price points. There are two separate measurements associated with the image.The first measurement is the image size in pixels. You should see two numbers… height and width. A 640x800 image is made up of 640 pixels in the vertical direction and 800 pixels in the horizontal direction. Notice that this does NOT correspond to any specific size in inches. A 640x800 picture would fill... continue reading

Bird Photography

I've always been interested a lot in observing birds. Sitting with a pair of field glasses or binoculars and watching out for a single little bird for hours and hours...that was when I was 12 years old. Now after 6 years I can combine it with photography and get some decent shots out of my hobby. Birds are wonderful. Camera can capture them in such astounding detail that you'd be surprised you saw the birds every day but failed to notice the true beauty of their eyes.I'd like to share some of... continue reading

Taking pictures in the best amusement park in the world.

In 2009 I signed up for a 4 month student work-and-travel program in the United States. There was a list of places I could chose from and I was more than thrilled to see that Cedar Point, the amusement park, which has been awarded for "Best Amusement Park in the World" for the past 14 years, was one of the options. A hardcore roller coaster fan, I spent exactly 5 seconds to make my desicion. I spent an amazing summer in the park, I got the best job (in my opinion), working at the steam train that... continue reading
