  1. OK......this month's challenge is to show images that have been made within 100 metres of your home. Not indoors desktop stuff, or in your house or garden, but everyday public activities, events, situations, occupations or objects in the street or road outside. All the better if the images you put up have been zoomed or licenced..... Like these - [that's my front door on the right] Outside the house next door Just around the corner
  2. Hi, new to the forum, I have had a small number of photos on Alamy for a number of years but had to stop as life got in the way. I'm back now and trying to increase my portfolio. I have looked in the forum and on Alamy but I need a bit of clarification on a couple of points. Firstly, as regarding street photography. In the UK I can take pictures of people/ property; without the need for a release form; as long as I'm in a public place. But Alamy ask for one even if it's just a part of a person or building/logo. Is this Alamy covering themselves for ' just in case' scenarios in countries other than the UK? Lastly, apart from Alamy's general list of needed images has anyone else tried to make a more definitive list? Thanks in anticipation.
  3. Lately, while I've been out with my tripod doing street (editorial) photography I've had random people ask to pose in pictures or just photobomb. Beside the point, sometimes they ask me to send them the images (for free) which I generally have no problem doing. My question is whether these "staged" editorials are useful or not when it comes to sales. I would much rather capture an "authentic" scene, not people playing up to the camera. Then, there's the ethical considerations that you're trying to depict a genuine factual representation of a scene (although I think in this example it doesn't apply). Look forward to your insight. Here's two such examples:
  4. I have just stumbled (literally, using the app "stumble upon") across this photographer and felt that I had to share these photos. Fan ho is, or was before he retired, a Chinese film director and actor; however back in the 1949 he had just arrived in Hong Kong from Shanghai aged 15. The photos on these pages are stunning, I visited Hong Kong many times during my time in the Navy but these photos are like a different world to the Hong Kong of today. take a look http://www.wherecoolthingshappen.com/hong-kong-in-the-1950s-captured-by-a-teenager/ I have found an interview with the photographer from 2013 here with more stunning photographs http://leicaliker.com/2013/01/11/fan-ho-hong-kong-master-street-photographer-1/
  5. Just got back from taking pictures at my local shops. I've been questioned a few times over the years and mostly it's been fine after I;ve explained what I'm doing. Today, taking a picture of what I found an interesting communal door to some flats above the shops, I was met with a torrent of abuse from one of the windows to the flats.The man was so agitated it was hard to make out everything he was saying. I explained what I was photographing, and was met with even more abuse. The last time this happened to me it really knocked my confidence and I stopped putting any pictures on Alamy. I'm starting to think street photography is not for me, which is a shame as it rules out so much as I live in an urban environment. Chris.
  6. Hi all, I am trying to restart my Alamy stock photo. All of my photos so far have been nature macros. But I am interested in street photography and was wondering if street photographs are good for sales on stock photo sites like Alamy?? Any advice will be appreciated to kickstart this.Thank you!
