Jeg har solgt mit første "stock" foto


"Stock photo" er fotoarkiver, hvor alle der har brug for et foto til en speciel lejlighed, kan købe fotos. Et af de helt store er iStockPhoto.
Jeg har nu solgt mit første foto via iStockOhoto, der viser et typisk dansk strand perspektiv med store vidder og høj himmel (se ovenfor).
Jeg vil tro, at dette foto er købt i forbindelse med det store mediefokus der har været på Danmark i den sidste tid pga. klimatopmødet, hvor der har været behov for at vise noget "typisk dansk" i forbindelse med en beskrivelse af Danmark.
Vi taler ikke store penge :-) men det er en start, der giver blod på tanden. Kravene er høje til fotoets kvalitet (man skal igennem en streng godkendelsesprocedure for hvert foto, der sættes til salg) og der er ligeledes strenge krav til copyright, modeltilladelse, visuelle brands etc. Der er dog flere amatørfotografer, som tjener en skilling ved at fokusere på et tema og så dyrke dette fotografisk (f.eks. "julen"). Dermed er det nemmere at finde deres foto og har kunderne først fået øje på en fotograf, der løbende leverer anvendelige foto indenfor et eller flere temaer, så kan det blive et godt økonomisk supplement til at det fotoudstyr man køber!

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
