I've worked as a photographer some years ago and, it didn't mattered how I tried, my pictures were only beautiful, but not worderful as the ones placed at websites like webshots, for instance. Those pictures have colors so beautiful I cannot describe. I wonder which equipment do they use to take pictures as those. Do you have a clue? Share it with me!

Photography is about 40% equiptment and 100% art. You need to see the picture in your mind and then work until you get it on paper.

I've learned from some websites which pays for the pictures you upload on them everytime someone downloads them. I was thinking about subscribing, but I am not sure if it you pay for the work. Have you ever tryed that before?

I think these photographers do more than just snap a camera. I think they have extra lighting in the background, VERY expensive camera equipment, and they take a very long time trying to get pictures JUST right. They probably even time it out to get the picture at the right time of year when everything looks just perfect. I also think I take very good pictures, but still not to the quality of the ones you refer to! If I could afford the expensive equipment, maybe mine would be just as good as theirs are.

Man, I really would enjoy having this kind of equipment. I spoke basically about the colors. they are amzing! The red is so red and the blue is so blue. I wonder if they use digital cameras or traditional cameras with Chrome film. Do you guess?

I wrote a resonse under someone elses comment but I just wanted to add, good luck. Keep practicing. You need to find your style and it will also be great but sometimes it takes a lot of time practice and finding the right subject.

It's the kind of film you use if you're using a film SLR. And the opening and the speed of shutter. I don't have a a proper study in photography but those are the tips I had from professional photographers then.
