Goals

I had a goal when I started to publish on Dreamstime. It was about three months ago it started, and now I have finally reached the goal of getting 100 images published. This goal has meant, according to myself a great trip in improving the photographic skills. It is very educational to read the forums and take the advice of those who approve (and not approve) the pictures. Of course other photographers tips also has meant a lot.           If the buyers don’t find my pictures... continue reading

The Photographer’s Creative Process

 For many photographers, the hardest part of a photographic project is settling on an idea. Fine art photography isn't so much about snapping as many photos as you can in the hope that you get the perfect shot. Instead, a good project takes lots of time, thought and research. Those three things are all part of the “creative process.” Want to learn more? I'll show you my basic creative process so that you can learn how to turn those half-formed ideas into works of art.It Starts with... continue reading

How I automated my microstock process and reached profit.

>  I have more than six months experience working on microstock. At The first weeks I had sent my photos via a web form, it was very slow and not convenient. Uploading of small amount of photos on just one stock took a bunch time and required constant control. Next, I learned about the possibility of uploading photos by the protocol FTP - it allowed to speed-up the process. Then I discovered the IPTC meta tags. By this time I was already registered on 4 stoks, i need to write notes about files uploaded... continue reading

A bug in the process... (finished...)

In my previous post I have mentioned an old house which we - me and my wife - have bought last year, hoping to renovate it into our dream home... Yes - plenty of work for already overloaded couple, but this kind of challenges are somehow extremely satisfying and even thou you lack sleep and your hands are aching from tools, you undertake next challenge just to feel like God, when you sip your well-deserved beer while looking at finished results of your own work...And another of such projects... continue reading

Process Raw or Shoot JPEG?

Happy New Year Everyone!I often pondered this question and write this because I have a sneaky feeling that I may not be the only one to have faced this dilemma.Like some other people out there, I thought the choice was simple.

Surely it was better not to process at all - so I thought the answer was obvious. If I shot in JPEG my photographs will be original and will never... continue reading

Process a JPEG as good as RAW!

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
