A&P People comment, or favorite or use my pictures...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Mar 25, 2009.

  1. I've noticed a few web sites that use my photo in context, but do not take credit for them. I get comments on my photos on Flickr and MySpace, and people favorite them as well...

    By any means am I good or just a lucky shot?

    but to throw something at you... Joe Rosenthal's picture of the "flag raising" (actually it was a replacement flag, the original had already been taken down because one of the company CO's wanted to keep it.) was a pure accident.

    He was fucking with his camera when he looked up, saw them putting up the second flag, threw his camera up and snapped a photo. He never even brought it to his eye, attempted to focus... nothing. The result; the most famous photograph in the world.

  5. So really I'm just perhaps taking what I perceive as a crappy photo, and it strikes a chord with a few people?

    Possibly. I'm still having a hard time seeing the specifics of what you're talking about. :hsugh:
     
  7. I can cut out all the links and just tell you...

    I shot photos for a friend who DJs, and 3 people on MySpace commented... all liking the picture

    I've shot photos of my girlfriend's dog, put them on flickr and people comment on them...

    I've shot photos of landscape, and people have favorited them...

    I've browsed websites where a few images I've taken around my city, have been posted on city-data.com

    But a lot of photographers would say they have bad compisition and what not...

    Ignore the rest. This right here is about the only thing that might indicate some good photos. The tools on myspace wouldn't know a good photograph if The Picture slapped them in the face, remember, they invented myspace angles.

    Some photos just happen to strike a chord with certain people, it's tough to explain.
