  • Yes, 99% is probably an exaggeration, but I suspect not by much! I think the number of "camera operator" type photographers massively exceeds those who produce original and truly creative work. So ...
  • I think where we differ is in so much that I don't believe everyone who calls themselves' a photographer is necessarily an artist, or someone who creates original art or creative value. Let's say ...
  • You make some good points. However I feel they are not easily comparable. A business producing a magazine with multiple pages is only comparable to photography if the photographer was shooting ...
  • I'm not sure I agree with the whole notion of getting paid more based on the use/genre. In any other industry that might be considered discrimination/extortion. Would you expect a camera store to ...
  • It's about association. Produce a calendar for charity and have a Ford badge in the photo, are you saying Ford are endorsing the charity? Likewise if you show a photo of an armed robber getting out ...
  • But do people not realise the reality of the situation is that it's impossible to stop or even meaningfully reduce copyright infringement? In a world of high speed internet connections, high ...
  • Never said anything about being in the US. Another one of those conclusions you seem to quickly jump to.
  • Damn you've got me! I'm a teenager from Hawaii! Actually, as I look out of my window at what is laughably called the British summer with a stack of paperwork, I really wish I was a teenager from ...
  • So, I told him exactly the above as someone who is a certified fraud examiner and has much experience acting as an expert witness. You've told him the same as a lawyer. I wonder what top trump card ...
  • My answers are based on fact, whether positive or negative is down to perception and whether they conflict with what you want to hear. So, let's cut to the chase and give you the only answer you ...
  • Well it sounds to me like you have all the answers and have an answer for everything we suggest as a barrier to entry. Also you now have a buddy in the trade already who can advise you on income, ...
  • Yeah, crop too tight, shadow areas especially in the hair a bit too dark and the expression looks like the kid is bored.
  • To keep my pocket-money making hobby (or semi-pro income) of photography afloat I'm a certified accountant and a certified fraud examiner. I have and do enter crime scenes to retrieve paper based ...
  • Opened this thinking it was going to be a thread about some $5,000 wedding or $10,000 commercial shoot, where the client paid hundreds or thousands of $$$ above the competition, based on liking ...
  • The X-E1 has nicer skin tones than the more modern Fuji sensors in the X-E2, X-T1, etc. However, even with the latest firmware AF is still pretty terrible for anything other than virtually static ...
  • You mention a number of criteria that make your work art. So let's say I buy one of your prints and want to hang it on my wall. In simple terms I bang a few nails or screw a few screws into the ...
  • "You're an amateur playing professional. You don't charge enough for your work. You're eroding the industry. Blah Blah Blah..." Whatever people say, you pointed a camera at someone and took a photo ...
  • Maybe a slight exaggeration/poetic license, but only slightly. It's astounding what the sponge like brain of a teenager coupled with the abundance of Youtube/online tutorials can achieve! ...
  • I personally don't consider photography to be an art form any longer, no matter who does it or how good they are. I think of it as a basic science, or maybe a creative endeavour, in much the same ...
  • Sounds to me like you were looking at the working file size in Photoshop, displayed at the bottom of the screen. This included things like history of adjustments to step backward/undo, layers, page ...
