I'm guilty as charged. How about you?
« on: June 21, 2014, 12:57:43 PM »
I know I'm guilty of a number of the cliche's in the video below. Although I don't necessarily agree that they are all "No No's"   :-[ How many of you are also guilty?

I do some of those from time to time. For me, although I have done it in the past (I'm better now), the real no no is adding text, or adding copyright symbols to stuff online.

I agree that some of them are unfairly included - if, for example, you visit an iconic landmark it much more satisfying to have a photograph you took yourself than a postcard. But he is being tongue in cheek - I hope ;)

I like the next one video link that popped up - how to annoy a photography snob, about 2:30 in.

But the whole series is amusing.

 Yep. Copyright symbol on my muso pics but's that because they're all a thieving bunch of scumbags who are always bleating on about their dubious outpourings being illegally shared on t'internet!  :knuppel2:
               No offence musos.  :-* :legit:

Speaking as a retired semi pro muso, IMHO the whingers need to accept that the media is a loss leader - the money to be made is in performance and merchandising. In short, change the business model.

  Indeed. I'm having to.
                                      This is a particularly sore point with me at the moment for reasons I won't go into for fear of making the swear filter implode!
                                      As I said, no offence to any musos, I know there are a few on here.  :tup:

Digital Rev make some very good videos on using cameras and most are tongue in cheek.  :tup:

Guilty over here too. But I'll continue do what I like. That's the beauty of a hobby. You do what you like.  ;)
May the Force be with you.

Graham, I wasn't suggesting you change yours, but the the musicians need to accept that recordings are now mostly advertising, and in general, a business doesn't charge its customers for advertising. Clearly there are still some selling opportunities with recorded music and video, but far fewer than there used to be. It's no use whinging about the world changing, it has to be accepted.

Please guilty  to most M'lud, but have mended my ways  on most, so please be lenient.

However I would like the following to be taken into account before sentencing.

Pictures of rape seed fields in bloom.

Pets.

Shiney glazed buildings

Tree bark

Soft focus flowers

and most heinous of all Pictures of my photographlc equipment!!

A word in mitigation, I've only been at it 30+ years.
