Images that are mass-produced as ‘wall art’ or posters for use in décor differ from fine art in that the images are not signed prints or original art. The business of wall art is complex and involves multiple publishers, distributors and online retailers as well as direct distribution to consumers through department stores, box stores and poster shops. Creating images for this market can be more profitable for photographers than trying to build a reputation as a fine artist although the two are... 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 100shots.)nnSo 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
The Dutch Railways realises that railway stations form an important part of the center of cities. I guess that is one of the reasons that the architecture of the railway stations is regarded as extremely important. Rotterdam Central Station is no exception. It was officially opened in March 2014. A year later I took this picture. It is one of my best selling pictures, especially in 2015. The most recent sales was this week. Here the original picture, it was taken with my Nikkor 16-35mm... continue reading
I'm deeply thankful to the Dreamstime team, they really opened a world to me... my idea was firstly aimed to share my own space with other photographers and passionate addicted to photography.

Then I decided to try to submit two pictures for exclusive use in DT... and, surprisingly, here they are... This first one was taken from my patio, looking in front... continue reading

I post Drabbles - stories told in exactly one hundred words. I use a little creative freedom and sometimes feature fewer than 100 words. The idea is to convey meaning in brief snapshots.So far, I’ve written around twenty drabbles, a few are published some are work in progress. The challenge in writing drabbles is in the cut, which takes time, but is the most rewarding part of the writing process.Drabbles included in my blog at Dreamstime are also published on other platforms.Best wishes... continue reading

Newbies: Please skip the article if it scares you. If you are in doubt about WB or exposure, ALWAYS shoot in RAW.The photographers of advanced levels of knowledge about color representation and compression surely know that RAW files contain a huge amount of additional useful data as compared to a JPEG. A RAW may contain 14 or 16 or sometimes 32 bits of data per color channel. A 16 bit TIFF contained from a RAW of equal bit depth would give you (2^16)(2^16)(2^16) unique colors and intensities.... continue reading
