I made this micro-island from plastic, sand, rocks and seashells and I put on it various insects. A photo studio for these tiny "models".Is very comfortable to shoot on this island, I can rotate it for good angle. This video show the moment when I put a can full of caterpillars over the spider, a really assault from the sky :)Around the island is water, as you can see the caterpillars can swim but the spider was keept at place to do the web. I have another video with the spider and the web.... continue reading

Three weeks ago, in preparation for a skiing trip I switched my Canon Rebel with my eighteen year old daughter’s Lumix G1—I needed something more compact that I can take along with me up and down the slopes and still be able to take some decent enough pictures if not for stock submission.So off she went back to college with the Rebel and Tamron 18-270mm lens.[The long of the short of the snowboarding trip is, one, I wasn't able to take decent photos up the slope. Two and more painfully, I realized that I am too old or perhaps out of shape (or both) to expect to be able to do the things I was able to do in my 30’s, which if I may add, was only about four years ago. Shortly afte continue reading
While I wouldn't rely solely on a point and shoot to capture stock images, it is possible as long has you have a quality point and shoot with a good lens.I originally settled on a mirrorless compact camera (Panasonic Lumix G2) because I knew it would be too easy to leave behind a large DSLR system.But even then I found times when I left the house without a camera and of course spotted all sorts of great subjects on my trips around town.So I purchased a Lumix LX5 which features a nice fast... continue reading
Hooray!!!I finally had an image accepted in the assignment challenge!The beautiful young lady pictured here is my niece. She needed a photo for an upcoming school pageant so we found a great spot outside in the nearby mountains and began our photo shoot.It was a lot of fun and we both got something out of it. She got a ton of great photos she can use for the pageant and I was able to add several photos to my dreamstime portfolio and, most exciting of all, I was able to have a photo elevated... continue reading
I have a Canon 60D. Expensive camera. 18 mega pixels. Super features. With a Canon 50mm f1.8, it is tack sharp. Worth every unit of currency. Yet, my last eight approvals on DT have come from images shot with my old, faithful Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot. Why did that happen?The one reason I can immediately think of is P&Ss are made for everyone and hence come with every feature in small doses. Sharpness, expense, resolution and zoom (how many times have you been asked about your prime lens'... continue reading
I have just had my first two model studio photos accepted ! I have been doing studio model shoots for about a year now, all TFP/CD a lot of the shoots have been "retro" look, 1950's 60's. I chose these two as the position of the model leaves plenty of "empty" space on the image..... I am learning ;o) continue reading
One of the first photo projects I thought of submitting to Dreamstime was the life cycle of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly. When I saw the caterpillars devouring my parsley in the backyard, I knew I had to take the photo opp.I snipped off a half-eaten parsley branch that had one of the caterpillars and took it to my desktop studio for a shoot. Afterwards, I put the worm back in the parsley bush to let it go on with its business.The worm was alien to me, so I had to do some online research.... continue reading
We had our friend come by to do some new pictures with the new camera.She's always so happy to help out!Her uncle is a photographer, so she's had quite a bit of informal training at it.Compound that with her being a Cheer Captain and her always up attitude, it's always a load of fun!Like she told me this weekend, she's not afraid of color, so we dove into her makeup kit and pulled out the paint!She has incredible eyes, and we were able to take advantage of them this time!I can't wait... continue reading
