Often times I like to find a precise location for my photoshoots, but there will be times where it’s not possible. So I resort to compositing images together to get the scene that I want. If I wanted a scene with the Eiffel Tower in the background, I can buy a ticket and fly there, or I can go and buy a royalty-free image from a stock photography page. There are a ton of stock photography sites out there and I used to frequent them a lot as a freelance designer for ad agencies, but the one that I keep coming back to is iStock. Their collection is amazing and it just keeps growing. The quality of their images are second to none. Take a look around and decide for yourself. In fact, their giving away 10 free images if you sign up with them (sign up is free).
If you’re a photographer, take a look around there are plenty of images that will inspire you and perhaps get your creative juices flowing.
