  1. Thank you so much, everyone! I'm getting the hang of it. One problem is I wasn't paying attention to the ISO (yes, I'm a neophyte). I went out and took a bunch of night photos and was careful about the ISO and they all look smooth as silk. Sad, though, because I got some great close up photos of US presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, but they all seem slightly soft or with noise. They were shot at night under bright lights but the blacks are a bit noisy. Onward.
  2. Yeah, those plane wings shots. Blah! I will delete. I was thinking that I was supposed to strive for quanitity but I see my error now. I can’t stand seeing those mediocre shots on my page now. All your words are very helpful. Thank you, Betty! Lack of sharpness seems to be the biggest culprit when I zoom in. I’m still learning the camera and these inspections are making me a better photographer. I like hearing about those who upload one winner shot per topic. Actually, that would cut down on the workload.
  3. 😁 My good friend Dan. I've known him since 1980.
  4. Thanks! I was just thinking I could maybe find this information elsewhere on this site. I have heard about including context when photographing street art, that makes sense. But I see all kinds of shots and details (without context) of artworks and artifacts on here, so a bit confused.
  5. Claire's has been in the news lately, something about using asbestos in their makeup.
  6. Hi All, I have done a search here in the forum and cannot find any answers though it has probably been discussed before. Can we sell photos of objects/artworks in museums? Sculptures in museums and in public squares? Diego Rivera or Orozco mural details? Ancient temple artifacts and details? How does that work? I see a lot of people selling this kind of stuff but reluctant to upload myself until I understand the rules. I have tons of it. Kristin
  7. Cool. I finally got out of the QC deep freeze and my "QC rank" even went up to 3 stars if can you believe that. Still avoiding any night shots to be safe, while spending a lot more time discriminating and proofing. I feel much better about my portfolio as something that is beginning to represent the photographer that I strive to be. Takes work!
  8. Envious of the quality and quantity, congratulations.
  9. If you never gave it a name when you set it up, you can still do it. I just checked mine, which is set up, and it will let me name it ONCE.
  10. Wow, thirty days would be discouraging! I don't know that photographer but looking at his work now. 😎
  11. Yes, my first ten batches went in without a hitch so I got a little less careful. Now I'm investigating every photo with their QC requirements in mind. The rejections seem to be happening when I try to improve contrast/color balance etc, so I've stopped doing that. It's a good process to slow down. Good discipline. It's forcing me to interrogate each image, so I'm learning a lot about the weaknesses of my own photos and I like building a stronger portfolio as I go.
  12. That's a good direction, thank you! I will sample from various shoots to show a variety and maybe upload a few 35mm photos if I can figure that out.
