“TinEye is a reverse image search engine. It finds out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or if there is a higher resolution version.” – TinEye.com
Idee the makers of TinEYE also develops image recognition software and services for Adobe, istockphoto, digg, Associated Press and many others.
Here is a video demonstrating this powerful tool:
Test it out and give it a try: TinEye Reverse Image Search.
When I asked StuckinCustoms what their philosophy is on not using ugly water marks on their beautiful photography, this is what they had to say:
” It’s a multi-part philosophy –
1) Legitimate companies do not steal images to use commercially. So I don’t have any logical fear there.
2) There are other services, like Tineye (and google) that can help me easily find evil-doers.
3) If there are evil-doers, they will have already used my image wrongly, setting up a slam-dunk legal case.” – Stuckincustoms.com
So watch out evil doers!

The podcast covers software, hardware, workflows, and tips used in capturing such beautiful imagery. Michael James also speaks about the upcoming Scarlett by Red which seems it will capture HDRI for video, Promote Control a great tool for controlling your camera, how to get into the real estate photography business, and explanations on how some of his imagery was captured. The rest of his website is full of great information for photographers and videographers alike, being that both professions are slowly merging.

Thank you Michael James and Mike Miriello for sharing this valuable piece of information.
I see no other way of capturing real photography of people, unless they are truly unaware that they are being photographed. It seems that as soon as someone knows they are being photographed they strike a pose, no matter how much one asks them to please to act natural.
This following articles explain the process of shooting these types of photographs, along with results of such style of photography:
Part II of the article introduced me to a very talented real-life photographer Garry Winogrand, who’s speed and agility in taking photographs are very impressive. Here is the direct link to his documentary:
Here is a nice article discussing photography of strangers on Flickr:
It may be a little tricky to figure out how aperture, exposure, and shutter speed on your camera work together.
I found this handy flash application that shows you how the settings function on your camera, below the application you get a nice explanation on how your camera works.
I wanted to share some photographs of the beautiful Plantation Historical Museum.
The first five images were created using HDR technology.
