    As far as I remebmer the photo shoot came out quite funny. I was almost done shooting when I realized that I have shot everything in .jpg and for some reason in the lowest quality. I had to make it all over again.

    Как заработать на продаже фотографий — советы и предостережения

    Итак: стоки. За и против.

    Только ленивый еще не сделал в интернете страницу, где перечислено все то, о чем хочет узнать каждый, кто обдумывает возможность заняться стоковым ремеслом. Снизу должны обязательно быть реферальные ссылки, такова традиция.

    Five persons, four monoblocks, two batteries, a day of preparation and only a half an hour of shooting. It seems that it was one of the most complicated, but yet interesting photo shoots during the summer of 2012.

    During the end of July we've made an interesting experiment with black organza. It took place on one of the most beautiful beaches in Estonia. We are thankful to Tatjana for the patience.

    There are some models who are always a pleasure to work with. Take Lena for instance. Working with her I am always calm and certain about the result.

    Recently I was checking the 2012 summer material. I’ve discovered a couple of photos where the flash didn’t worked correctly. At first I’ve thought that it was a complete failure, but still tried to repair. The result came out as good as with the flash.

    Backlight is a very powerful tool in the art of photography. It often happens that just a simple flash settled from the right angle can show much more than a whole pack of monoblocks.

    Crop tool is a really handy instrument. Sometimes it's just enough to take a photo and cut a part of it and that's it: a normal level selling photo is now almost a bestseller.

    The photo is pretty old: it is taken, if I'm not mistaken, even before the new year. But the final outcome came just recently. You can see a part of the Toomkirik on the background.

    Picking up the lights for this photo session took a lot of time. Eventually settled on a single softbox, hanging from the ceiling. This is not the first time when I realize that just a randomly settled light source can be more effective than a bunch of them installed "with thinking".

    Sometimes for my own risk I take photo sessions without precasting. This is like a lottery, and the best part is that I definitely didn't loose this time.
