Stock Photography: Some Tips on How to Get Started

Palm Trees Sway in the Wind against a Tropical Sky

I thought that I’d write a post on stock photography for those of you interested in uploading your images for stock.  In the beginning, meaning a year and a half ago, I was taking a ton of photos and they just would sit on my computer collecting dust.  I wanted to DO something with them so I started uploading my images to stock sites.  This was a great way for me to get feedback on what the industry thought was a good image without being “exposed” to negative critique on the world wide web.  I didn’t know what I was doing then – now I do.

Stock sites review for composition, correct white balance, noise, and clarity, etc. I didn’t even know what many of these terms meant in the photography world before I started in stock.   I get a lot of questions from friends who are getting into photography about shooting for stock.  This post is a general overview of how to do it.  Continue reading

The Bald Eagles at Conowingo Dam are world famous. When the days get cooler and shorter, the population begins to rapidly grow and one can frequently see up to 100 eagles in a day. 


  • Beginning at the end of October through the beginning of January, Bald Eagles are the most plentiful.
  • Anytime during the day is great as the action is unpredictable. The lighting quickly fades in the afternoon, quickly turning dark after 4:00 pm, EST.
  • Plan on spending many hours standing and waiting for the action of fishing and fighting.
  • Check on the Conowingo Dam Release Schedule daily by calling 1-888-457-4076.
  • TIP: Get there around 8:00 a.m. The lighting improves and it’s still fairly quiet.


Address is:  2569 Shures Landing Road, Darlington, Maryland 21034
