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
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.
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:
