I just started exploring stockphotography and Dreamstime. I haven't uploaded that many pictures yet but I have already sold a couple.I love traveling and hiking. A few days ago I uploaded a few pictures that I took in the Stirling Range National Park, Western Australia. And was surprised that they were already sold after just one view. Not sure how often this actually happens, or maybe it is just a niche market. Anyway I'm happy someone liked them and I hope they are happy with it.Also I... continue reading

I'm a Newbie on the block, only joined back in July and I'm really pleased to have had 84 images approved so far. Although no sales yet it still gives mepleasure to see each few days how 'viewings' sometimes shoot up...on some of my pictures...My range is pretty diverse so seeing what the level of interest is on 'what' is really proving useful.Still learning.....This was one I took back in the Summer I was pleased with. continue reading
I heard about HDR, High Dynamic Range while at a seminar.Some photographers favoured this technique, while others didn't.I like HDR more for the creative scene than for general photography and decided to give it a try.I bought Photomatix and my first few attempts were terrible.I mean it was hard to look at the photos after.I tried different tools in the program and no matter how I tried I just made a complete mess.I left the HDR adventure for awhile and while on Facebook I came across... continue reading
In new advertisements for cameras, the latest and greatest from Nikon and Canon, a lot reference to the high dynamic range of the camera and how great it is because of this. I'm not saying that a high dynamic range is a bad thing, in fact it is amazing the new capability that new cameras have, however I am suggesting that reducing the dynamic range can give an entirely different feel to an image, usually for the better.For many years I have wondered how the simple compact cameras of my friends... continue reading
Here I am going to explain a method which can give you a perfect Dynamic Range. I am going to focus on exposure blending.Why this method?"Because this method gives me the most accurate color rendition which I saw on the actual site." I don't say that you should not use other methods like graduated neutral density filters, HDR etc. Just have this also in your set of tricks :). I prefer this method because it gives the most accurate colors. I don't promise that you can be a great photographer... continue reading
This adapted from an article on HDR found in the "Garden Route Photo" web site, written by Hougaard Malan”HDR is in no way some miraculous technique to make a mediocre photo an amazing one, neither is it the gateway to becoming a great digital landscape photographer. Post processing will always play a minor role in creating a great photograph but the main effort will always be in the planning and shooting phase.HDR is popular because a camera can’t always capture the dynamic range of light... continue reading
Hi,I learnt this technique just a while ago and even it's not a long time I can truly say it's a love story.HDR stands for High Dymanic Range. It comes to solve problems caused usually by bad lightning. Let's say you want to take a landscape picture in a semi-cloudy day. If you'll measure exposure by the sky you'll see those beautiful clouds but the whole ground erea will be pretty dark. If you'll measure the exposure by the ground you'll see all of those details but the sky will be burnt... continue reading
