  1. I had posted a similar tutorial using 3D renders on another thread, but was not pleased with the really bad renders. So I reworked the tutorial with much better renders (and a much better recollection of how Lightwave 3D works!) Obviously, this is not a complete look at lighting styles or tricks, and it doesn't cover the use of light modifiers. It's just a basic look at 1, 2, and 3 light flash (or constant) light setups that, hopefully, will help beginners improve their lighting skills, especially as it relates to selling photos here. If all you have is one flash, at the very least it
  2. Hi everyone, I'm here to pick your brains again! I'm due to give birth in about 7 weeks and am naively thinking this will give me more time to build my portfolio, and maybe offer an opportunity to try out new photography ventures. I read somewhere not long ago that using flashes and strobes can do permanent damage to newborns' eyes, and even cause blindness in babies and toddlers. So my question is directed to the pros who have done newborn photography. Is there any truth in this? Am I best off using continuous lighting to be on the safe side? I do prefer using natural light, but livin
  3. Hi, I've only been able to get one photo accepted. I take pictures of miniature objects (1:20 and 1:87) using a shooting tent with daylight LEDs. Using a Canon Rebel T550 with zoom lens on a Tripod. I used to get soft focus issues which I was able to resolve using focus stacking, Now the only feedback is "Poor Lighting--Image has exposure issues, unfavorable lighting conditions, and/or incorrect white balance". Is the issue in this photo that the background is not completely white? Not sure. Thanks for any tips. I'm linking to a public Google public folder. Thanks! https://
  4. Hey Folks! I've had SO many people here give me advice and point me in the right direction. You guys are amazing! So, I'm back with some questions There have been people who told me different things like "That photo could be a little brighter", or "I think you could crop a little off the left side of this particular photo" and "That one would look good square". I'm sure my questions sound silly to all of you... but, hey! How else am I going to learn? So, my first question: Is it okay to edit my photo's with software? Second: Can I crop? And, are there only certain dimensions or
  5. Hi, I'm sure there's probably questions like this every day but I'm new to Shutterstock (and stock photography as a whole) so excuse my inevitable ignorance, but this is something I'd really like to get into and even make a small secondary income from. I've just submitted my trial batch of 10 and have had all 10 rejected. All on focus and poor lighting, 8 also on noise and 2 even on composition. I shot them all (bar one on a Canon compact) on a Canon 700D and intentionally had a shallow depth of field in a couple of the photos (is this allowed in stock photography?). I didn't play with t

  8. Just a minor complaint. Two of my images were rejected for the ever popular Lighting/Color Balance. These were toned B&W images of boats on a sandy beach, one toned blue and one sepia. They both had sunlit and shadowed areas, and I thought made stunning photos. Don't reviewers realize that monochrome has different standards from color images? Of course a blue or sepia toned image will have an odd color balance. And what makes monochrome work is often the play of light and shadows--sometimes dense shadows. I guess it could be that I should leave the toning to the buyer, or leav

  10. Hi guys, I'm very new, and have now sold my first 3 photos (yay $0.75!)... I've submitted a number of photos recently, and been getting the feedback "Poor Lighting--Image has exposure issues, unfavorable lighting conditions, and/or incorrect white balance." The two links below show the last version of the photos I've submitted, having edited them a number of times. I personally think they must be salvageable as there's plenty of light there. But they keep getting rejected. I've tried messing with exposure, shadows, colouring, adding layers and adjusting those and merging them. Can
  11. Hi All, I have asked for feedback on the critique gallery after having THIS PHOTO rejected for poor lighting. I wasn't questioning the reviewer; just looking for help to move forward. Anyway, I have now had 8 photos all rejected for the same reason, even the they are essentially all the same photo as one accepted a couple of days ago. My keys with orange fob. Having looked through other people's ports I decided to create a set with different things written on the tag. The writing was typed in post production so the lighting is the same as the one already accepted. I realise that I

  13. Hi All, Any recommendations on an affordable lighting studio for portrait/large item stock? Currently I am using 2 x 15w CEF laps going through a cardboard box (24inch) with tissue paper - yes it works but I am having problems getting people into the box. I really should have another lamp from the top... I heard that strobe lighting offers the best in terms of heat reduction for people.... obviously I am on a budget. Would off camera flashes work OK if synched to my Camera?? Thanks for your help. John
