Shooting Food Markets

One of the most exciting photography sites are food markets.

The usually the products are under open shade which lowers the contrast and boost the colors of the fruits and vegetables.

Whatever the scene you document, look for keywords ideas in images already present in dreamstime.


If you have the time, plan your trip in advance both the itinerary and possible stock images based on what you found missing in dreamstime.

Whether dreamstime is your main income or just an extra bucks to justify your endless investment in photographic equipment (to your spouse or your conscience...), make sure you also take the eye off the viewfinder/screen and truly absorb the scenery without any glass between you and the place you're at.
