I have done an analysis in Measures on filters used in searches over the past year. 1. 50 searches included [DT] Date Taken. While I can see it obviously matters for some subjects, some searches were very generic (savannah, ocean). Perhaps they meant to look for newly uploaded images and should have used the “New” button instead? This leads me to the following dilemma: if I already have a good number of the same subject uploaded a while back, should I add more of the same, jeopardising my CTR but perhaps leading to a sale? 2. Searches with [MR] Model Released: I was surprised to see that some of my images without people, thus no MR, had been picked up. I asked MS the reason. Reply: Alamy tecchies have coded if no person, then Model Released. This is a rather twisted logic, as the result is unhappy customers all round: false hits for photographers, false returns for photo buyer, presumably expecting people. Once again, how can we explain some generic searches like Tumbleweeds, Ant, Storm with MR?? 3. As an added observation, 598 searches included [FS] File Size. I’d be curious to know what size was selected. Any opinion on point 1 anyone? Cheers Gen
I'm using my Canon 60D to shoot video, though the question applies to photographs as well. I have to shoot video at 1/50 shutter and I want to keep the aperture between about f5.6 and f11 to avoid a fall off in sharpness. On bright days these settings mean I can't avoid over-exposing. It looks like I'll have to use ND filters to get the correct exposure. I hate using filters as it is just one more thing to carry around and to fiddle with when setting up the shot, so my question is, which type of filter do you find least troublesome in the field - screw in type or square type on a holder? I usually shoot with a 18-135 lens, 67mm diameter.
I've uploaded three photos so far and noticed something with the last one. I applied the iPhone's "Noir" filter to the image, which gives a high contrast black and white effect. It made this image quite dramatic. However, after uploading, the image thumbnail in the Activity section is the unaltered version. iPhone filters are non-destructive, you can go back to the original. Hopefully, the altered image is what uploaded, but if it was the original, this is a problem.
