Digital Camera World has a set of ” 9 Creative Photo Ideas to Try for November” over on their blog.

Featured Collection: Weather

Weather affects us all. Sometimes its as subtle as a mood shift, other times as day altering as a rough drive to work. Cutcaster’s weather lightbox features images that can be used to illustrate both literal weather and concepts like “brain storming“, “showering her with gifts/affection/attention“, “winds of change“, “dry spell“, etc. Gather images to use in the event of a snow day or to advise employees and customers to drive safely in bad weather or to make a fun seasonal announcement.

Wednesday Tech Tip: Editorial Images

Cutcaster loves editorial images.  However, we prefer images of celebrities, politicians, newsworthy events ( like natural disasters), and professional athletes.

When submitting editorial images, please keep the following tips in mind:
  • Parades, joggers, your son’s karate lessons are great, but not what we’re looking for.
  •  Never never submit pictures of people’s backsides (like at the beach) without their permission.
  • Don’t submit pictures of kids without parental approval (even kids in other countries).
  • Portraits of indigenous or ethnic people are wonderful, but please get a model release.
  • Be sure to use names when photographing sports figures.
  • We will be culling a lot of editorial images from our collection that do not have proper names, places, etc.
  • Be sure to mark recognizable and significant landscapes such as historic building exteriors (where people are not the focus of the shot) as editorial.
 Still have questions? Check out the images below for examples of the kind of pictures we are looking for.

Across America, we’re in the middle of the fall hunting season. Maybe you’re in charge of sending out a newsletter about the company hunting trip; or you own a hunting gear shop and you need images to advertise to your customers during your busiest season; or you’re just looking for a great image to create an invitation to your yearly trip to your cabin for deer season. Whatever you’re looking for we have the vectors and photographs you need in our Hunting and Fishing lightbox.
