Tip - From Editorial to RF

As some of you know from a recent blog, I bought a new "stealth" camera - a Lumix LX5 point and shoot.It has a fast lens and low profile that makes it perfect for going places where a bulkly DSLR might draw attention.I thought I'd bring it along on a grocery shopping trip with my wife.Now if you've never paid much attention to all of the brand names and logos in the supermarket, you certainly will when you try to find a good picture.Everything in the supermarket is slapped with a label,... continue reading

It was about RM (Rights Managed) Stock photography. I was a regular visitor to ****** , and used to admire the pictures and the creativity there.

RF for all over the world and Universe

In one of our Czech magazines, a professional photograph talked about contracts he had to sign during his career. We are used to the one of Dreamstime, and so it might look almost fantastic to us what can be written in a contract.In one of the contracts, mentioned by the photographer, was written that all the photos bought by the client can be used and spread all over the world and Universe. The photographer couldn´t but comment, “O.K., but I agree just with our galaxy.”I wonder if it... continue reading
