Bill Clinton Became Subject of My Stock Photo

Former President Bill Clinton, during a campaign appearance, became the subject of a series of stock images for me.

This image is one that is now in my portfolio. When I had the opportunity to photograph the president, I took my time to compose the images I wanted to create, Of course, I wanted the former president in focus, but I wanted the crowd somewhat blurred.  I waited for the opportunity for the image I imagined, and when the opportunity presented itself, I was ready.

Sometimes, you have to be ready - especially when you know what kind of stock photography image you really want to create.

Protest in Lewisburg

While visiting Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, the Susquehanna river town that is the seat of Union County, I happened to spot some peace protesters quietly exercising their right of free speech on Market Street in the downtown area.

I asked if it was okay if I took their picture, and they readily agreed.  They look colder than the temperature was, but I suppose they were there for a while.

One of the group asked me, "Are you with the FBI?"

I told them no, and then asked if I even looked like I might be with the FBI. He told me in the past, the FBI have photographed them.

I liked the look of this hearty, aging group. I took several shots of them, and I also grabbed some images of some of their signs. 

This is just an interesting slice of America, and I was fortunate to create some images of these Americans exercising their right to express their opinions and concerns.

My images of them are being uploaded to several of my online stock photo portfolios and will be available for licensed used.

Colorful Shopping Cart Becomes Stock Photo

As is so often the case, I never planned this image to add to my stock photo portfolio. It just happened when I saw the way the bright sunlight illuminated the blue shopping cart that someone had abandoned in the parking lot.  I captured this image without planning, and added it to my online catalog.

Adobe Lightroom Classic CC for Stock Photographers

On October 18, 2017, Adobe Lightroom Classic CC for released. Now with a new name, this photographer's app is a favorite and a necessity for the working stock photographer. Now faster than previous editions (which had slightly different names), there are new enhancements and features in this latest version. Adobe lists the new features here.

You are going to hear more about a great new feature called Range Masking for fine selection control. This is going to allow you to have even more control of your images. Adobe says that can "Make precise color- and tone-based selections for local adjustments. Use the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, or Graduated Filter to define a rough mask, and then refine your selection using new Range Masking options."

Lightroom is not a luxury for stock photographers. It is a necessity.
