I have 21 images online - Why ain't I a millionaire?

As a contributor who has put a lot of effort into learning about stock photography, studying my craft, investing in equipment and building my portfolio over the past two years, I think there is nothing that gets under my skin more then a slacker, whiner complaining about how their portfolio of 10 shots of isolated tomatoes or a snapshot of their cat sleeping on the couch isn't selling.Just because your wife bought you a semi-professional camera, your mom asks you to take pictures at the family... continue reading

Infrared images and the Fuji X-Pro 1

Not long after the Fuji X-Pro 1 was released, infrared photography aficionados found that with a few hacks, the system could yield very decent infrared images. Around the same time as well, I was researching if I could replace my current DSLR rig with the X-Pro 1 for travel photography. Infrared photography was not part of my portfolio yet, but if, with a relatively modest investment, I could do so, all the more the better.I did my research here and added the following to my equipment stack and... continue reading

Is the Fuji X-Pro 1 good enough for stock?

My de facto camera for stock is the Nikon D7000, and with the release of the Fuji X-Pro 1, I researched as to whether it would be a viable (and lighter) alternative to my pre-existing system.The forums seemed to be filled with haters and lovers of the X-Pro 1. Those who did not like it blasted its AF, its battery life, initial lack of RAW support by Adobe, and a variety of other things. Those who loved were enamored with the quality of its images, and the fact that it liberated them to shoot more.... continue reading

Cokin Z-pro holder, wide angle lens and dark corners

About a month or two ago I posted a question into DT's forum about ND Graduated filters, Cokin Z-pro holder, wide angle lens 17mm at 1.6x crop sensor and vignetting / dark corners. Didn't receive an answer if there will be any dark corners or not.To date I've had that set for a while and I thought I post an answer for my own question. So, the quick answer would be Yes, there will be dark corners with that set up!. I've tried several holder set ups by adjusting filter holders moving them from... continue reading

Over 2.000 in portfolio!

Finally I dit it! 2000 in portfolio. It's been quite a while since I have started with DT.
