Waterfalls: Hints To Make The Best Of Your Photographic Experience

Waterfalls. A photography gold mine. There's no such thing as a bad waterfall photo, right? Maybe, but it's not as easy as it seems. The base is where the action is and the base can be hard to get to. Even if the cascade you want to capture is in an urban environment, you're generally going to find some rugged terrain. You're going to need to plan ahead, taking into consideration access, proper footwear and clothing, necessary equipment and general personal safety.Access and EnvironmentMost... continue reading

Sunrise vs. Sunset: Which Magical Time Do You Prefer?

As a photographer, you have to take equal advantage of both the sunrise and sunset. However, that doesn't mean you can't have a favourite. I've put together a few of what I believe are the advantages and disadvantages to shooting at these two times in the day. I'm based in Southern Ontario, Canada, on the outskirts of the Greater Toronto Area so some of my reasons may be biased to the location and environment. But, for the most part, the factors are universal.The sunrise... continue reading

The water cycle - my first animated video on Dreamstime

The Water CycleWater or hydrological cycle reflects continuous and neverending movement of water in the nature. The water moves and changes its form during the processes of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, infiltration, surface runoff, and subsurface flow. These transformations also involves the exchange of energy. One of the side effects of water cycle can be the re-shaping the surface of the Earth.   continue reading

Starting Out by Dipping My Toe in the Water... Literally

I'm just starting out. I've made exactly $4.47 from selling stock photography so far. Alas, none of that is on Dreamstime. Apparently the search algorithms on other sites are more favorable to me than this one. I'm not quitting my day job.I started out by simply uploading my best photos. I didn't take those photos for stock photography. I took them as a hobby. My hobby is hiking in the mountains, mostly in California, and finding and identifying wildflowers. I don't think it will shock anyone... continue reading

Water reflection

 Autumn lake, quiet reflection,like a watercolor painting.Like the quiet scenery, quiet picture, like in a dream. The reflection of the water is one of my favorite subjects. I think one of the most valuable photography is that it can quickly show their favorite picture, which is not able to do painting.  continue reading

South Texas

Recently, I have added a lot of South Texas pictures, thanks in part to a trip my wife & I recently took down there with my sister. Now, for those unfamiliar, South Texas is...well, pretty much desolate, with oasis' of cities cropping up every now and again. There is Corpus Christi, a mecca for the tourists who love sun and surf, then Kingsville, with its world famous King Ranch & Santa Gertrudis cattle. Further on down is Laredo, Harlingen, and Brownsville.There are also other small towns like... continue reading
