Alamy blog - The Impossible Picture (and other innovations)

Recommended Posts

Spring is often the season we choose to talk about what will shape our futures. The air is fresh, and as nature, we want to renew ourselves too. As photographers it is the time we ask how to reinvent what we do. What new technologies will emerge on the market? What gear shall we choose? And no wonder, with technology evolving this quickly, you only need to blink before a new upgrade of your camera is on its way. It’s an expensive addiction, but how can we resist?

And how can we afford to upgrade with license fees going through the floor?

Alamy are at least trying to have a constructive dialogue here.  If all we can offer in return is a lot of point scoring, then perhaps we deserve rubbish fees.  And maybe the buyers are telling us something by offering them.

 

The notion that upgrading is unaffordable misses the point, because it isn't necessarily about upgrading, or needing expensive technology.  Some are doing advanced, imaginative work using free software, GNU, even using Gimp, and that includes CGI that looks more authentic than a lot of photography.  Advances in image making are dependent upon photographers and illustrators acquiring new skills and sometime learning more about the technology they already have, rather than buying yet more gear, and the blog post may be a bit misleading in this respect.

Hmmmmm . . . I'm giving you a 6 out of 10 for nearly wiggling out of that one . . . "only missed by that much" . . . ;)
