I realize this probably isn't Exactly what you're looking for (because it is a bit of cold water in the face, potentially), but hopefully you'll find it helpful anyway... There are three main reasons that photographers get their work published: They differentiate. What makes your photographs different than every other photographer's photographs? If you ...

First one must contrast titles with captions. Titles are brief one liners that need not have any grammatical structure. Captions can be a short sentence of one or more lines, often also called a sub-title.. The terms are often used interchangeably but a photo can have just a title, just a caption or both. The purpose, in both cases is Firstly to ...

You bet... two labs that I've specifically used for making custom photo books are: Bay Photo White House Custom Color They both have product lines that include a variety of different configurations (book size, # of pages, paper choice, cover options and materials, etc.), quantity of books ordered (1 or 2 is a common request), and will use 4-color or ...

You mention that the images speak for themselves, well when you first look at them what exactly are they saying? That is the title. All photographers are trying to invoke an emotion of some type with their image, the title is often either a direct description of that emotion or additional text to help enforce the message. A good example is an image of a ...

If you can set up your Raspberry Pi to listen on WiFi, my suggestion is as follows: Install imagemagick on the Pi to get the convert utility. Set up the Pi with an SSID and NFS/SMB/whatever shared folder to receive the images. Script something in bash like for x in *.jpg; do convert -resize 50% $x; done. You can poll the folder on the Pi for changes, too, ...

Find a series of likely publications that you think your work would be appropriate for and make direct contact with them. Include a link to some examples of your very best work. Apply to various photography magazines for their "featured" sections (most mags feature photographer's work each month) as well. Keep trying to make contacts, make sure you get to a ...

This is a legal question and the best answer is to consult with a lawyer. Even in the US, there is the potential that some states laws are slight variants of each other. The most known source of information on this is Bert P. Krages II who is an attorney and published a pamphlet about the photographers rights which you can obtain here and print yourself. ...

If I'm having trouble thinking of a title I sometimes use a one-word title that expresses some relatively obvious attribute of the photo. Some examples might be Dark, Happy, Sunshine, Clouds, Green. It doesn't require much thought, and since it's only one word you don't end up with a potentially clumsy phrase. If I'm feeling witty I try to come up with a ...

It's called a tear sheet. Newspapers can usually supply this a a vector PDF but when my photo was published in a magazine, i only received the actual tear sheets and no digital files.

My titling scheme is simple: for portraits, the title is the subject's name. For cityscapes, it's either the subject itself or the part of town the photo is taken in. In the end there's no right answer. I prefer brief descriptive titles myself, but "untitled" is valid too. Personally I dislike long and florid "pretentious" titles, but if it's part of the ...

If you are uploading so many photos that you cannot even think of a title for each them, then rather stop and think over if you need to upload so many photos. Why not limit yourself to a smaller collection of most valuable photos?

Photo Mechanic is one of the most widely used products by photojournalists due to the speed you can read your cards, scan thumbnails, add metatdata and upload images. It's a standalone program which runs on Mac and Windows - I don't think there's a version for Linux. If you have a Eye-Fi card, Photo Mechanic can monitor folders for new files as you shoot ...

As you noticed, the competition is massive. And that competition exists mainly of 2 groups: 1) professionals with established contacts and a large portfolio of quality work to show to potential buyers. They're going to take most of the publication slots. 2) wannabees who think they can sell their vacation snapshots for massive money. They're just making ...

There are several approaches to nomenclature, and different approaches work for different people. I usually follow the approach that labnut summarizes with Cato the Elder's wisdom: "Rem tene, verba sequentur". I think of titles, or even captions, like one thinks of poetry. My attempt is to state the data minimally and move aside- sometimes that could be ...

Popular Photography recently ran an article about this and they tested around ten photo book printers. Their conclusion was that the Kodak books had the highest print quality and noted that they were the only ones of the group they tested who print on a traditional paper. Adorama came in second with regard to print quality, so they would also be a good ...

My suggestion @ 90€ is have your own web host and run a copy of http://krpano.com/ Samples: Multi-Res: http://krpano.com/examples/multires/ Normal: http://krpano.com/examples/normal/#top

I'm sorry, I am not a full-time celebrity photographer but will try to help with an answer. As stated on their web site, WireImages uses there own photographers. Other companies handle photos and photographers in other ways. Some services are going to focus on buying individual photos from photographers who they have relationships with and others are going ...

You note that you're taking a lot of pictures. Here's an approach you might take: don't click the shutter until you think of a title. This isn't necessarily what you'll want to do always, and of course occasionally you see something and just have to get the shot as it appears, but overall the idea is to make an exercise of slowing down and making photographs ...

Let me take you on a bit of a different direction... as one of the tags on your question is mentioning art! Think of not using any titles (or captions) on your photographs!!! If the photograph has a great deal of things to say, I want to explore the picture myself! There are times that a title might through me off the picture!! I mean that sometimes I see ...

You should probably be looking for something better, particularly if you want good quality. Good thing you will also have a bigger and better camera too, which you will have to use in low-light and action situations. So, for the small camera, currently the Canon Powershot S95 performs well for its class and even has efficient manual controls so you will not ...

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 HS is a very basic point and shoot. Nearly anything of a similar price is going to be comparable. It sounds like you are asking for a general listing of comparable cameras. I am not sure how to provide that, as really any new digital camera will have generally the same feature set as this camera. If you have a specific type of ...

For a situation like this you are better off consulting a legal expert in your area than relying on advise from the Internet. Where I am there is not a lot of recourse. You were on private property and there is an implied consent. I would start first by contacting the company and asking them to remove the picture. Starting the conversation by trying to ...

When you configure the Flickr publish service (either Jeffrey's or the built-in one), you create one or more "publish collections" that correspond to your Flickr photostream or sets on Flickr. When you add a photo to a publish collection, it appears there under a "New photos to be published" heading. After you upload it to Flickr using the "Publish" button, ...

In the UK, the law states that you are allowed to take photographs in a public place. Therefore, if you are in a public place (sports event or otherwise), you can reasonably expect to have your photograph taken. However, as it was a sporting event you were at, I imagine the grounds or sports centre where it took place were privately owned? In which case, ...

You best way to go for this is using an actual website. Put the images in 3 folders: thumb resolution screen resolution print resolution Make a HTML file that has - for example- a chain of left-floating divs or a table if you prefer that. <div style="float:left;"><a href="\screen\img1.png"><img src="\thumb\img1.png"> <a ...

Ok here's what I understand for duty and custom charges. When you order overseas it gets sent to your country it will go through customs who will then determine whether customs duty will apply. I think in most cases the buyer will have to foot out the bill unless Amazon does it for you. Where I'm from there's 0% tax on photographic equipment so custom duty ...

The "mark as up-to-date" option is only available for items that have already been published and flagged to be re-published.

Lightroom doesn't appear to offer any inbuilt support for marking a photo/video in the 'New Photos to Publish' section as published without first publishing it. However the Lightroom 4 SDK exposes a LrPublishedCollection:addPhotoByRemoteId method that allows you to mark the photo as published when adding it. If you can obtain the remoteID and remoteURL ...

Facebook are reasonably responsive to privacy issues which have the potential to cause them legal woes. If you complain to Facebook with a statement that the photo is of you and that it is being used in a manner that you did not authorise and that it was NOT taken in a public place then they will almost certainly remove it. If you contact the original ...

As I understand it (as a photographer, not a lawyer), if the photographer has the permission of the landowner to take a photo, they can; However, I would ave thought that under data protection legislation, your personally identifiable information can only be used for the purpose that was disclosed at the time (and this is why photographers liek models to ...
