Hi! I am a passionate Lenspirationer and photography enthusiast from Pennsylvania. I am shooting with a Nikon D5200, and two lenses: an 18-55 mm and a 55-200.
I had thought of the lighting aspect too, James.
OK, so my friend says,
I want them to look more professional, from other painters I know they have said a better camera can help get the blue or darker white out that I seem to pick up on my phone camera.
I want to make prints…
@bennett-family, ooh! Budget photography! One of my favorite subjects…
@ernestf-lloyd has the idea there. What she wants to photograph will make a HUGE influence on what she’ll be wanting to purchase.
If it’s her paintings, I know my mom uses her smartphone instead of my (technically her?) Canon 60D, which used to be about a $1000 DSLR. So she…[Read more]
Thanks for the info @frazerfamily. Perhaps the shapes of the reflections are not as pleasing because they are “straight” up and down, as opposed to what’s created by the more graceful shape of the glass container I used. And no, I didn’t use any filters.
Nice and sharp @sonja-grace. Do you have a macro lens for getting these kind of shots?
Wow, very nice @ernestf-lloyd! Great foundation now on which you can continually add now! Love how sharp the photos look.
Congratulations everyone! Kevin liked several of the photos that were submitted. Though there is no guarantee, there is now a high probability that he will use any of the photos shown below. However, there is one final step that you (especially @ernestf-lloyd, @esther, @ephillips, @sonja-grace, @frazer-family, and @bennett-family) need to take…[Read more]
@ernestf-lloyd Thanks! I will check these out!
It would help me out if I knew what your budget range is, and what features you are wanting. 😉 🙂
I don’t really want to spend more the $30 considering all the ones I’ve gotten before have broken. Wireless is a must (so I can be in my photos), and I would like it to be able to shoot in bulb mode.…[Read more]
I would say this is a great upgrade from Gimp.
Uh, yeah. No contest.
Oh! And while I’m here—if you’re looking for a Lightroom alternative, ON1 is also 50% off. You can get one of the greatest alternatives to Lightroom (in my opinion), for $50 one time (you’ll pay for upgrades in 2021, but nothing’s stopping you from keeping t…[Read more]
Wow that’s awesome, @ernestf-lloyd! The portfolio looks really nice!
Hi there @ernestf-lloyd! Finally got a chance to sit down and look over these beautiful photos today!
– Sunrise-over-hill: Just a lovely scene all over! I love the sun beams, the colors in the photo are lovely, the clouds aren’t outstanding, but they are intriguing! It looks like a pretty place to be.
– Sun-through-woods-r-e: W…[Read more]
This was taken in the late afternoon/early evening.
I’m still trying to figure out the best lighting options, so any tips would be appreciated!
If you’re trying to figure out best lighting options, you certainly have chosen the right time of day for it! 😉 Golden hour and sunset offer deliciously gorgeous lighting that can t…[Read more]
I actually ended up ordering only 3 designs. The way it was working out with the quantity to order for each design, I was going to end up with A LOT of notecards, and thought it would be better to have to…[Read more]
I enjoyed looking at the process you took to get the glowing effect in the first shot, @ernestf-lloyd. Removing the little distractions really does help. It appears that the natural warmth or softness of the scene was lost in the first edit, though. And I think the glow may cover too much of the scene. Perhaps if it was coming from the top of the…[Read more]
And since I didn’t announce the winners during the webinar, I suppose I should do that here!
It was great fun to silently watch the panel discuss which photo should be the winner. The individuals on the panel had artistic and graphic design experience on both sides of the stock photography machine, both in selling stock as well as in buying…[Read more]
Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to submit some photos! Hope you had a great Christmas and New Years. I was down in Texas visiting family and you can’t beat 75 degrees for outdoor people photography!
@ernestf-lloyd, I do believe those kind of photos are exactly what Lightstock was looking for!
@ernestf-lloyd, when I went to become a contributor on Lightstock, I didn’t have a portfolio either. I asked them if I could email them some of my best work instead, and they were more than happy with that. 🙂
Multiple of us on the forums are contributors on Lightstock, so if you have any more questions, we may be able to help!
Great question, @ernestf-lloyd! I use a website, Pixieset.com for my online portfolio. It’s easy to use, and free for up to 3G of space.
Another thought is that you could try emailing Lightstock and see if they would be willing to let you directly email a sample of your work.
I am wondering if you currently use Lightroom? I know that Lightroom classic comes with Adobe Portfolio, which is a free portfolio website creator. You could also use a social media portfolio or maybe Dropbox?
Thank you to everyone that submitted a photo! We really do appreciate your support.
Unfortunately, none of the images that were submitted were what I was looking for.
For sake of time right now, I’m going to have to be very brief.
so here it is the original picture and then the edited version.
I don’t think my edits really helped…There just isn’t any subject to work with!
The edits definitely cleaned up the picture a lot, but now it almost looks too empty! 🙂 Enjoy shooting your next misty morning!
