Right season to shoot the scenery with low speed

On March this year I had an idea to travel around Erhai, which is located in Dali Yunnan China.It was a sunny day. The skywas blue and the airwas fresh. I leased a car and drove with my wife. We were so happy because that was what we wanted. It was noon time when we stopped at the small restaurant near the lake. I found there is a curvebeside the restaurant and the yellow flowers along the road. The brown mountain is in distance. I thought it was a good place to shoot. I needed... continue reading

Video frame rate

Frame rate – is often the reason of strobe motion on air of small local television companies. At the same time, frame rate is wonderful option to play with, when you need more accurate slow motion (in wedding footage, for example).

By changing numbers to the lower side (for ex. from 60fps to 23,976fps), you’ll get wonderfully slowed video.If you... continue reading

How $20 increased my acceptance ratio

About 18 months back, my acceptance ratio on DT was at about 35%. While this was an increase from the earlier 25%, thanks largely due to a slightly better understanding of microstock requirements and general composition, it was still a bit dispiriting to see many images being refused for poor image quality.I had sold a DSLR and settled down with an Olympus E-PL1, a small mirrorless camera, and a 14mm lens.

All of the photography knowledge you have will go out the window if you can... continue reading
