Episode 021 – Capturing All The Things

In Episode by nnps6 Comments

There are all sorts of shenanigans going on in the photo industry these days and we’re gonna cover some of it in this episode. To start, Brian and Sharky bring up a thoughtful article about whether we, as photographers, are experiencing an over-sharing epidemic. While the title of this PetaPixel article may be a bit melodramatic, there are some reasonable points that author, Caleb Kerr, makes about our tendency to want to capture everything happening at every moment and from every angle. While the crux of Caleb’s article stems from 360-degree cameras, we feel that it can be applied to other forms of image and video capture. Next, your hosts cover a peculiar story about Canon EMEA using a clearly composited photo with a large component coming from a photo taken by Elia Locardi. There are a lot of moving parts to this one, so definitely give it a listen. Finally, we’ve got another solid entry in our “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” series. Enjoy!

Show Notes

  • Writing for PetaPixel, Brendan Kerr asks whether we’re currently experiencing an over-capturing epidemic [via PetaPixel]
  • F-Stoppers broke the story of Canon Italy and Spain using a partially stolen photo on their Instagram Profiles [via F-Stoppers]
  • The offending photographer, Greg Paul Miller, composited a portion of Elia Locardi’s photo and shared it on Unsplash. His account has since been deleted but we have a screenshot:
  • Canon’s response has been seriously odd and lacking any sort of humility [via PetaPixel]

What’s On Your Gear Shelf?

  1. Regarding the lifted photo, the same kind of thing happens with other stock type websites. I’ve heard of people finding some of their photos up for sale on iStock or Shutterstock, etc. Or people selling their photos on etsy as prints and such. With Unsplash, eyeballs are there. Apple, Facebook, Instagram, etc all have used photos from Unsplash / Pexels. It’s pretty crazy and they never seem to credit the photographer. Not necessary right, but imagine what they might be able to do for the photographer by just giving some credit. It’s just good karma.

    Agree you cannot trust Greg Paul Miller as a photographer at all now.

    Nice gear recommendations!

  3. First of all, great show guys! I really enjoy listening to you. Even the dad jokes 🙂 (seriously)
    Not sure if you’ve talked about this (As i am listening to the show backwards, and I am still catching up)
    I would really like to know what’s on your table more then what’s on your shelf, or, to be more precise what monitors do you use, how often you calibrate… that sort of stuff
    Sorry that the above comment is not an episode related.
    Regarding the episode theme. I kinda got used to people stealing photos. Me and my wife have a food blog, where every recipe is cooked, photographed, (eaten) then posted online. Unfortunately, the amount of images that are being stolen from our blog is just enormous … And whenever we react on the websites or people that steal, their reaction is just removing the image. Forgot to mention that our policy is that we are always open to collaboration and syndication, and all we ask (if someone wants to use our content) is proper credit and a link back to our site.
    Once again, keep up the great work, and sorry for my bad english.
    PS. (for Sharky James) when i said “listening the episodes backwards” I meant listening in reverse order, from the last to the first, not actually backwards (as in David_lynch_twin_peaks sort of way), so please don’t make a dad joke about this. Cause I already did it 🙂

  4. Hello guys! Love your show. Just want to let you know that the currency in Italy it is also the Euro – as in Spain and a total of 19 European countries – not the Lira as you stated. I know this is not as bad as “the internets” or “the grand titans”, but our italian friends must be really upset. 🙂

    Keep up the great work!

    PS – I’m based in Portugal. We also use the Euro 🙂

  5. Hey guys, great show as always. When you were talking about extracting frames from video, I remembered that my old Panasonic FZ1000 had that feature a long time ago. Extracting 8MP frames out of 4K. I can set the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO values manually, then just fire off at 30 fps for up to 30 min and then extract the image in-camera as a .jpg. I really only used it once for a motorcycle stunt show and it worked quite well. Now with the GH-5 you can do 6K extracts so the photos are 18MP. They are jpg only, but for really difficult or fleeting moments, it works great.

  6. In your discussion you suggested that Italy continued to use the lira as it’s currency.
    Italy in fact is one of the 19 members of the Euro zone and uses the Euro as it’s currency.
