November 2020 challenge: Photographers


Recommended Posts

Sybille, thank you for a very successful challenge! And thanks for voting everybody, not just for my friendly orange guy 😁

 

For the new challenge let's pick a theme that we all know something about:

- photographers.

 

Some simple rules: there has to be a person and there has to be at least one camera. Preferably somebody who is using his/her camera. Groups of photographers/people using cameras are fine. People taking selfies are fine even people using their phones as a camera are fine.

 

It's pretty popular with contributors:

photographers - 138,101
photographer - 745,207
photographing - 192,526
taking a picture - 49,663
taking a photo - 224,809
selfie - 247,698
photography - 11,382,859

- all results here on Alamy.

Maybe a little less so with clients, but there's still quite a considerable demand. (AoA)

 

The rest of the rules are as usual:

3 images per person max; they must be on Alamy; this challenge closes on Monday November 30 at midnight GMT.

The poll will be up at some point the next day.
Have fun!

Congratulations Wim, well deserved.

And thank you for the new theme because you know what? I have a few images keyworded as you said 'taking pictures', 'taking a photograph' but not tagged 'Photographer'!!

Adding it as we speak in AIM. Also, I don't think I'll tag someone taking a selfie as 'photographer'.

Well done with your win wim.

 

Is it purely stills photographers or can video photographers be included in the comp?

Is it okay to add a third later and if so do I just edit this post and add it here?

You could do that. Others seem to just add them in later. Probabley makes it easier for wim if you add it into your existing post.

I was with a group of journalists and while we were given better access to take photos, no flash or tripods were allowed.  The was the rule throughout many of the antiquities of Egypt. So a lot of high ISO photos!

It is really amazing to see the change in the industry...

 

Good luck everybody.

True, I was amazed how poorly protected the ancient hieroglyphics, on the walls, were.  People were putting their hands all over them.

I thought it was the other way around nowadays: all those videographers look like photographers. But why not?

Now would they make it to the last 8?

Let me share a couple of personal bonus points and possible wildcards:

Most photographers in one image;

Humour/humor: something funny;

A photographer doing something stupid that only we, other photographers, recognize;

A photographer doing something really clever.

But good images will always trump  uhh win over bad ones.
