365/2: 069. Sunset.
Didn’t have time for anything else. Enjoy.
Digital Photography Review: Getty and Flickr to cease partnership.
But they keep the images and relationships they’ve made … ?
365/2: 068. My fave tree is still destroying the adobe wall ...
Outtake, a bit of faux wet-plate fun.
Nice Marmot: Later that same afternoon ...
Dave’s kickin’ it with the bird shots today.
Crazy clouds and snow.
The outtake’s just as insane.
DP Review: 500px Prime goes live, photographers now get 70% not 30%.
“Would you be happy with selling an unlimited license to one of your pictures, forever, for $175?” $250 is the lowest price for any photographic work. Not exactly Etsy now, is it?
We did get the snow.
365/2: 066. Snow’s a-comin’.
Beautifully programmed, when there’s great content to view. It would be a nice app for a small group of motivated people, or a travel company. In that form, it could be *really* useful. But for the open internet - not so much. Tap “Recent Activity” and see all the junk people are posting. Geolocations and single curse-words? “Frankie and Johnnie kissed here”? “This is a nice dog park.” Meh. I think the form-factor is an issue; I don’t think I’d allow creation from a mobile device smaller than a tablet. Guaranteed short-form low-quality stuff.
If you’ve downloaded the app, try following ‘Steffe’; one of my friends from Flickr. He has a set called “Runestones.”
[Yes, I joined. What I’ll do with it - no idea yet. Have to try *something*. The service needs quality stuff, obviously.]
365/2: 065. Bobcat Bite.
Most often empty now. Sad times. More.
Nieman Journalism Lab: Getty Images blows the web’s mind by setting 35 million photos free.
“Getty Images (or third parties acting on its behalf) may collect data related to use of the Embedded Viewer and embedded Getty Images Content, and reserves the right to place advertisements in the Embedded Viewer or otherwise monetize its use without any compensation to you.” Their emphasis. I wonder what the photogs think. I’m sure we’ll hear, shortly.
365/2: 064. Doors, faux wet plate effects.
Still jamming in CMS work; haven’t had time to wander. So I fiddle instead. And a sunset.
365/2: 063. “Canon fodder.”
Lens cleaning time. Take my word for it - a push/pull zoom is NOT a lens to have in the Southwest. [Read: manual vacuum for dust.] If you need one - RENT IT. Don’t own it.
365/2: 062. Textures.
Sort of how I feel right now: Dead, dry and blue. Working too much.
Valet: Miserable Men on Instagram.
Equal time is necessary. Ever notice the faces of ladies in, say, Best Buy?
365/2: 061. Storms breaking up.
And, snow on the Jemez.
MailOnline.UK: Amazing pictures of the huge herds across the plains of western China.
This makes me happy.
ArtDaily: “Glossy Paper: A Century of Fashion Photography at Condé Nast” opens in Paris.
Sounds like it’ll eventually visit Forth Worth, TX. Fashion, fashion design and fashion photography trickle down to other parts of the creative world; always worth a peek.
Ken Rockwell: The Nikon D600, D800 and D4 are the same camera inside!
Say what you will about Ken, he always knows how to shake things up.
365/2: 060. RAIN.
Rain. It’s a beautiful thing, folks.
Youtube: Maserati 3500GT Will Make You Fall in Love.
Sunset tonight; seven outtakes.
Vimeo: Yosemite HD II.
My recent experiments with timelapse make me appreciate this effort all the more.
Youtube/GoPro: Pelican Learns To Fly.
Neat. [I hope the pelican was not harmed by mounting the GoPro. No real info on the vid.]
