Do you buy or shoot your own stock for backgrounds, textures, etc.?
I'd love to hear your general thoughts on when to use stock vs. shooting your own images for composites? I try to avoid stock like the plague, but on occasion I do have to bend and grab something that I don't have the ability to shoot myself due to time, location, cost. What about you guys? Do you use stock regularly? Are you making sure that you are following all the rules when you do use it? What are your thoughts?
