Before I submit any image to Dreamstime these are the steps I take:1. First I select the best photograph of each subject series based on composition, lighting and sharpness. If it is not sharp already I don’t consider submitting it.2. Next I straighten and crop it in Photoshop to fit the rule of thirds.3. I then slightly reduce the shadows, if necessary using the Photoshop Shadows/Highlights function and a Shadows Amount of around 5-8.4. Next I enhance the lighting and colours... continue reading

I always had problems when processing RAW image files especially the ones shot at night time or during low light situation.And of course, a lot of it were refused by DT.We all know that we should try to use low ISO setting to lessen the noises, but sometimes we just cant help it and had to increase our ISO settings to get the correct exposure.

Again ... for those who can't afford better equipment and might be affected by this fringe thing.

I've recently came back from a volunteering mission in Morocco.I needed to pack light so didn't bring my full camera gear and didn't bring my flash.Now not having a flash means that many of the indoor lighting conditions I had to shoot at high ISO which normally translates to more image noise.However, I'm going to share a technique I've learned from another camera forum in the past which goes over how to reduce noise in low lighting shooting at high ISO which I think you'll find useful.... continue reading
Forgot to bring your tripod and desperately want to use your non-image stabilized tele without camera-shake? Use the "over-the-shoulder" technique!Support the long lens on your left shoulder (this is easier for lefties (left eye dominant)) and aim it backwards.
