Raise your hands if you dread about posing your Models to get great, natural-looking portraits. Not long ago, I would be the first to shoot my hand in air and run away to capture flowers and landscapes instead. As an Introvert, I developed a set of specific methods to overcome my shortcomings in working with Models and make the photo shoots enjoyable and productive. Five years ago, I arranged my first TFP (Time For Print - exchange digital photos for model's time) photo shoot with a... continue reading

With the popularity of Internet, there is no doubt that finding model is a lot easier now compare to how it was decades ago. You can find them in social media, modeling agencies, and modeling websites.You can also find them through socializing. Always bring business card with you. I find that dance club is a good place to find newbie models. They don't even care of the compensation, they are just thrilled to know that somebody is willing to take pictures of them for free! If you have budget,... continue reading

This pic of a female Stonechat (Saxicola torquatus) got a standard 0,42$ sale recently, this was now the third sale since I uploaded it in 2013. It is the typical "Dreamstime photo" in that the Stonechat is really posing for the camera.

With eyes at or close to the same distance from camera to achieve equal focus on subjects.This gives each person equal importance to the image.Works well for families.Allow one to be in focus and the others to be out of focus.Combined with the composition of your photo, using diagonals or rule of thirds, etc, you allow the one to become the primary focus while the others fade into the background.So, there are my thoughts.Most of these images are not mine, but I thought... continue reading
Since I started on with Dreamstime I've started taking a lot more 'posed' shots trying to achieve something in particular.However, most of my favorites are still shots where the subject wasn't posing - I just captured a moment that will never happen again...That is what drives me to take more and more photos. continue reading
