Side by side with lizards

After the purchase of a macro lens at the beginning of this summer, I needed "models" to picture at. As spending much time in countryside I noticed a small family of lizards living in a flowerbed. Often I saw them having sunbath at a yellow-green bush. Then I decided to pick up my camera and try to get nearer to them for photography purpose. As you see, I succeeded. Actually it was easier to get close to them as I thought. They did not seem to be afraid of me at all, if you move very slowly. I took... continue reading

Improving your English with DT

Besides all the photo oriented knowledge at DT there is also a positive side effect for non native English speakers: It improves your English!Before I joined DT I thought my English is quite good. I did learn it for 8 years at school, oneyear English lessons at the University (yes, I was quite lazy at school with learning English).Moreover I do work in an international company for nearly 20 years with many foreign colleagues - so English is in my daily use, at least the technical English.... continue reading

One... continue reading

Looking from buyers side of the table

Today I was thinking about stock photography buyers. Is this important? It must be, it affects sales. That leads to the point that at stock agency every contributor must think in advance.My first bunch of images was mostly rejected. I wasn't thinking anything. It was more like impulse upload. I have some nice images here so lets see if I can succeed in stock photography. My mother likes them. And my wife likes them. But reviewers didn't. They thought that the quality was overall or bad instead... continue reading

taking risks and erring on the side of caution with photo shop

if ihad written this last week like i planned it would be all about taking risks with my post processing. being a little more aggressive, not being afraid of pushing saturation and contrast just a bit.finally getting some isolated shots that i was proud of, because i took some chancesi have always been too critical and too worried that it wasn't just rightmost of the time i would end up deletingthe image before i ever gave it a chance. however i did take the chance and got some accepted.... continue reading
