Editorial photography turned into stock

Hello, this is my first blog , so bear with me . I wanted to share my experience with editorial, street photography turned into stock , since I think very few of us tackle this niche . I did some research and since there are so many royalty free stock images on this particular site and on the internet in general , I found it very difficult to come up with fresh ideas. So I wanted to take a risk and I was surprised to notice that my editorial photos had considerably more views than my non editorial... continue reading

Risk factor ...... Way over 100%

All I can say was ...... HOLY MOLEY, that was a close one!Actually what I said was," HOLY $&@#%#! This is crazy fun!But only after 8 exposures, BAM! The largest lightning bolt I ever came face to face with, struck the Chicago skyline, right in front of me! It was one of the most scariest moments of my life while taking photos. But I knew I was able to captue it, the "once in a lifetime" shot! I raced back into the car and that's when the hail started coming down. In certain parts of... continue reading

Alert, high risk for your battery charger!

As I experienced "on my own flesh" three weeks ago, you have to be very careful when charging your batteries with your charger and the electricity is produced with a generator. If the generator has a failure and the electricity goes off, unplug immediately your charger! As soon as the generator has been fixed and it´s motor again produces electricity the first impulse arrives with a high tension and may burn your charger, it happened to me on my last peruvian trip, I didn´t think about removing... continue reading

Taking a risk

Here are two examples of a risk that I took last year.This is a random picture that I snapped at a local city fair and a crab on the beach while on vacation.Once I returned home and started going through all of the images I found these images but was worried that they would not be accepted or sell.I decided to take a risk and sent them in.Both pictures were accepted and have since sold, one twice.This is a good illustration of the microstock market.Not every picture has to be a piece... continue reading

Is Nuclear Power Worth The Risk?

In Washington D.C. many protests are unannounced.I was down at Lafayette Park next to the White House to check out the protest scene on 3/20/11 and listened to music and speeches from a small group protesting nuclear weapons and nuclear power.Obviously nuclear power has its drawbacks but if oil keeps getting more expensive many countries have the unpleasant alternative of accepting nuclear power if the price is more reasonable.Everything from homes to electric cars can run off of electricity.... continue reading

The risk to get stolen the camera - what to do?

Dear members,a lot of dreamstime members have very expensive cameras and the risk, that the e.g. Canon bag with camera will be cutted by someone is also high in some areas. My camera was not very expensive ca. 160 eur / ca. 220 dollars, but I am only using a normal bum bag / fanny pack for my Fujifilm camera. Of course some people will be proud, to wear a bag with a Nikon or Canon logo and feel better with it, but they also give attention to possible thiefs. And it is really hard to loose a camera... continue reading

Acceptance ratio

After having steadily increased my monthly acceptance ratios, I'm moving onto different grounds.I have now a relatively good idea about whether this or that portrait or landscape will get accepted or rejected.But when it comes to concept shots, it's still a total fog!I have lots of ideas but more often than not they're too complicated to execute. Some ideas I manage to put into a what I consider nice enough picture to submit. But more often than not they come back as "not stock... continue reading

Taking chances

Sometimes with stock photography it pays to 'play it safe' and add to your portfolio with similar images to what you have done in the past.Ultimately, though, I suspect that growing your portfolio in new ways helps a lot.Mostly though - it keeps you interested.While I don't have the luxury of spending hours on every shot I really enjoy it when I have an idea and take some time out to realize it.There is some risk involved as you could spend the time and then have it rejected!For me... continue reading

Business metaphors a powerful thought evoking tool

Designers or writers looking to add visual impact to their work quite often look for a metaphor to use. These can come from a variety of sources, but what seems to work well is a simile. A similie of course differs from a standard metaphor because you are suggesting something is "like" something else, that is really not like it at all.Take the image on the right here. The image is of a businessman playing Blackjack. He has drawn 18 and decides to sit. This image of course could be used to add... continue reading
