Hello my online user name is Kippa, my real name is Michael. I'd just like to state for the record that all photography on this Deviant Art account constitutes as free stock photography. They can be used for whatever purpose be it personal or commercial. You can change and alter the photographs without restrictions. You don't need permission to use or change my photographs. What I do ask is if you do use my photographs could you please credit me, it is NOT required it would just be nice. :)

5K photographs vs 4K photographs
Some 5K photographs have 4K versions of them, but not all of them. The 4K versions are both resized and cropped to exactly fit 4K TVs and Monitors being 3840x2160. When cropping you loose some of the top and bottom of the 5K versions due to the 4K photographs having a different aspect ratio (1.78:1) compared to the 5K ones (3:2) . So if there are 2 versions and if you have a 4K monitor then I'd recommend you go for the 4K version, or if you are after a larger version that isn't resized and cropped then go for the 5K version.

I'm quite amazed that all of em are free stock images. Its like finding a hidden treasure.

I thank you. I will credit you if I ever use any of the photos.

I wanted to asked you a couple or questions. All of these photos are taken within the UK? There quite beautiful locations.
The other question while be, what kind of camera you using to take these shots ? I'm pretty sure you get asked that a lot.

I take the photographs purely for pleasure as a hobby.  As well as taking them, I upload them so other people can use them as well for whatever they want.  The camera that I use is a Canon EOS 7D, which I have had for quite a few years now.  All my photographs have been taken from places in the UK.  Feel free to ask me more questions if you want.  :)

Thanks for the answering really quick. That caught off guard, haha. 
Whats the ISO speed on the camera? I have a Canon Rebel t3, which it was something that I bought without researching well. Don't get me wrong the camera it takes nice pictures and its very easy use, but when the location gets darker or at night that's when I get trouble. It tends to get extremely blurry and u start to see noise. My mentor told me it was due ISO count being low, which is 6300. He also told me to research before you buy. Anyways since I'm not getting into serious photography the Rebel does its job. I might switch to a better camera in the future once I start taking pictures for reference, so atm I will rely on stock photos for my digital paintings.

I should really type less, and keep it short. I apologize for that.

Your Canon Rebel T3 can take the same sort of high quality shots as my Canon EOS 7D. 

To shoot in a dark place you need to do a number of things to get the image better exposed.  Here is a list of things you could do.
 
1.  Make the aperture larger.  The aperture is the size of the hole in your lens, making it larger lets more light in.  The down side is that when you have a wide aperture you get soft depth of field which means that not everything will be in focus.

2.  Have a longer shutter speed.   If you have a longer shutter speed you let more light into the camera.  The down side is that if you go below 1/30th of a second shutter speed like 1/10th or 1/5th you will get camera shake which is due to you moving the camera whilst the shutter is open for a long time.

3.  Boost the ISO.  Basically this boosts the sensitivity of your sensor in your camera.  For example if you were to go from shooting 100 iso to 200 iso you are doubling the sensitivity of you sensor.  The down side is that when you boost the iso as well as boosting the light sensitivity you are ALSO boosting background noise which is what makes the image look fuzzy.

To get the high quality shots that I get I want to shoot at ISO 100 so it isn't noisy.  I do this by using method 2.  and having a long shutter speed, but to get around the camera shake I HAVE to use a tripod to avoid camera shake and keep the camera rock steady.  Sometimes the shutter speed is open for like 30 seconds which is a long time and would be impossible without using a tripod. 

If you haven't got a tripod then I would recommend getting one.  It doesn't have to be fancy, just a cheapo one will do.  All it has to do is keep the camera still enough for long exposures when you use long shutter speeds.
