Believing in the unbelievable

In this world we hold strength.With strength we consume fire.Fire builds on our thoughts.Our thoughts produce that which it made.That which is made can turn out differently in every one of us.Some come by evil, some come by pure love.Stories bring out what is hidden deep.Fairytales are told in place of what is real.Made from evil, birthed by fire.Goes out with pure love anddies like ashes as the wind makes way.Within this wind lives may fade.Yet this world cycles all which... continue reading

Simple is not easy

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” – Steve JobsNo, this is not going to be a blog about sayings by the late Steve Jobs.It just happens to reflect very well the reaction I had (eventually) upon seeing a sample of photographs taken by Paul Caponigro.The pictures I was looking at were mostly still life or landscapes, and I am ashamed to say that upon a superficial glance, I was inclined to dismiss them as simple shots... continue reading

Provocations of Dorothy Lange

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”I am simply awe struck by that thought.Read it again, please and then read the next quote.“This benefit of seeing...can come only if you pause a while, extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet image.... continue reading

Afraid to stop forward

Too cold in winter, too lazy to go out and take pictures.Busy time ago, I rarely come to the DT. Today to open the film last year, found that these can be used for EDITORIAL photos.Although the EDITORIAL film sales direction is very narrow, but not better than nothing.Not afraid of the film is less,Not afraid to pass, however,Not afraid of slow sales. Afraid to stop forward.There are two photos of winter wheat.The two pieces when the film is very casual, but the effect can also be right.... continue reading

Your Thoughts on PIPA and SOPA?

For those of you Dreamstimers living in the United States, you've most certainly heard of PIPA and SOPA by now, either through the news or through the blackout of your favorite website this past week. Perhaps you've even pondered how it could potentially impact your sales of stock photography. Then again, perhaps you haven't.In a war seemingly between the web industry and Hollywood, true internet freedom is potentially at stake as these two laws would be far too vague to protect intellectual... continue reading

Lessons from a Newbie

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get ahold of some tickets to a Minnesota Timberwolves games (professional basketball). Our group was sitting in the third row which was only a could of feet/meters away from the action. I only brought my 17-40L lens on my 7D because I assumed that would be close enough, which it was for the most part.About 1/2 way through the game I got a tap on my shoulder. It was a lady who said she had the same camera as me (Canon 7D) and was wondering what settings I was... continue reading

Photography as per Elliott Erwitt

Following up on a previous blog (Reflections on thoughts of Ansel Adams), I would like to share a few quotes from Elliott Erwitt and at the same time get up on my soap box and offer my on observations pertaining to these.To start off with, I absolutely love this one:“It's about time we started to take photography seriously and treat it as a hobby.”I did a double-take when I read this.After all the reason I even signed up with a stock agency (and I suspect this is the same for a lot... continue reading

Not making basic mistakes ... Some thoughts ...

In the absence of much time to develop my shooting style of late I have been conscientiously trying to not make basic mistakes!Basic things that I have been trying NOT to do include:Arriving somewhere with no battery (now check the battery indicator before heading out)A full CF card (no a preview and check available shots before heading out)Fumbling around looking for my lens cap (always put it in my left front pocket)Forgetting to pack my tripod head or entire tripod (general awareness)... continue reading
