I like to write romance novels and Dreamstime is the perfect location for me to look for potential book covers because I’m looking to publish independently. There are so many images that have potential for me that it took me six hours to choose the one I want to use for my first cover.But for me, what would a perfection location be for this type of photo? Personally, I would choose a small country town, with quaint old buildings and maybe one traffic light. A place where traffic isn’t an issue... continue reading

Just like the nature; universe inspires, influences and amazes me since I was a little kid. Lately the only thing makes me sad is that it seems not possible to see other worlds, great civilizations in distant planets with our own two eyes. Universe is expanding and galaxies having even more distance each other - and even in this situation, there are billions and billions galaxies out there with mind blowing amount of possibility on the richness of life.All I can do as a creative person is trying... continue reading

Why shoot in black and white when there are so many wonderful colors in the world?Shooting in black and white or for conversion to black and white forces you to really zero in on the light and shadow in your image and can add a lot of drama.On a recent trip to the circus with my granddaughter, we shot a lot of great color pictures.They are fun to look at and full of energy.But there were some instances were I wanted to capture a bit of a different feeling.One example is a pair of acrobats... continue reading

A friends shop was failing.Stuck out of town and making luxury layers of cake her talents were not being seen.Then we had the idea to jazz up her shop window.Out came the coffee machine and in went exquisite sweeties.We are what we sell (she has all the contrasts of a macaroon!).It's great when people see us at our best after all it's what we deserve to look like!This is where I applaud the images on dreamstime that gleam and brighten with sharp, sparkling contrasts.Shining... continue reading
I often wander about with my camera...even on the coldest of winter days and nights.Whilst some enjoy a cold, winters evening in their home,sitting on the couch, huddled under warm blankets and enjoying the TV,I might be outdoors in -30 degree weather doing one of those Australian 'walkabouts'.A frigid one mind you, but thankfully, devoid of kangaroos and people-eating creatures.Crazy you might say, sure.I know my wife would certainly agree with you.This past New Years eve was... continue reading
I love the incredible mix simplicity and complexity of black and white photos. At first glance, it's simply a photo of a man.
