PLAYING WITH LIGHT

 

PLAYING WITH LIGHT — Tips From Pro Photographers – Corinne Bagish: ‘The same exact place can look completely different with varied lighting. A positively charming Victorian home, for example, can look bone-chillingly haunted when lit from below, at night. The same forest, enchanted with dappled afternoon sunshine, can appear foreboding (Blair Witch style) when partially illuminated with the wavering beam of a flashlight. When it comes to photography, there are many ways to play with light to create the kind of shot you’re aiming for.

GETTY IMPROVES ITS IMAGE

 

GETTY IMPROVES ITS IMAGE — Getty Images And iStock iOS Apps Get A Big Overhaul. Darrell Etherington:“Stock photography giant Getty Images is updating its iOS apps, including iStock, and Getting Images proper, which received its overhaul on July 17. Both apps feature design changes that make the photography they show off much more the central focus. Along with these updates, Getty is bringing its new Embed function, which it unveiled on the web back in March, to the Getty Images app. Embed lets users who are looking for stock imagery for non-commercial use to use a simple code to put the picture on their blog or site, where it resides in a wrapper rather than in a traditional IMG tag. SOURCE: http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/10/getty-images-and-istock-ios-apps-get-a-big-overhaul-and-the-new-embed-function/ TAKEAWAY.

JUDICIAL CONTRADICTION

JUDICIAL CONTRADICTION — Why a Corporation Got a Religious Exemption, But a Photographer Didn’t – David Walker:”After the Supreme Court issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, granting a corporation an exemption to a federal law on the grounds that the law “burdens the exercise of religion” of the company’s owners, we wondered: Why did the Supreme Court grant a religions exemption to a corporation, but decline to give a hearing to a New Mexico wedding photographer who refused to photograph a same-sex wedding for religious reasons? It turns out that the cases are quite different.” SOURCE: http://pdnpulse.pdnonline.com/2014/07/corporation-got-religious-exemption-photographer-didnt.html For further information on this case, use the PSNotes search bar (above) using the name Elane Photography.

FADING INDUSTRY?

 

ARE WE LOOKING AT A. . . . FADING INDUSTRY? – Janet Smith:“You might call a market vibrant if it attracts top-tier investors, posts annual sales of about $2 billion and is marked by innovative and evolving distribution centers and ever-easier entry.But for many photographers,the market for stock photography has become far less attractive during the past decade. Long-time industry observer, author and consultant Jim Pickerell says, “There is a huge oversupply of images. Prices are dropping. In many cases, royalty percentages (to photographers) are also falling. And the number of people producing stock images and trying to get a share of the stock-photo pie is growing at an astronomical rate. Many very experienced stock photographers are cutting back dramatically on production or getting out of the stock photo business entirely.” To understand what is behind the scene Pickerell and others describe, it helps to know some basic terms. SOURCE: https://nppa.org/page/selling-stock-industry-trends TAKEAWAY: The industry might be fading but more stock photos are being used and supplied than ever before. Keep reading PhotoStockNOTES to discover where you fit into this industry and how other photographers are finding ways to sell their stock photos.
