Interview with Matt Stuart on Street Photography, Ethics, and the Future of Photography | Eric Kim

Interview with Matt Stuart on Street Photography, Ethics, and the Future of Photography | Eric Kim | Photography as content | Scoop.it


When I started street photography, one of the photographers whose work always amazed me was that of Matt Stuart. He is part of the international street photography In-Public, and has caught some of the most incredible images I have ever seen. I was always curious about how he was able to capture his moments. In the video interview with Miniclick, he talks about his thoughts on street photography, commissions, ethics, his interest, and the future of photography. For your convenience I have also written together a transcript of the interview below, so read more to get all the goodies. Photographs courtesy of Matt Stuart.....

Not sure how they measured this statistic, but the latter part is absolutely true! Watch the interview with Matt Stuart for an interesting perspective on a growing photographic theme.

Phillip Ennis's insight:
A must read for anyone self employed in a creative field. The next time you (a creative professional) is asked to do something for little or no pay, reply with the very spot on phrase of this article's author Tim Kreider: "Thanks very much for your compliments on my [writing/illustration/whatever thing you do]. I’m flattered by your invitation to [do whatever it is they want you to do for nothing]. But [thing you do] is work, it takes time, it’s how I make my living, and in this economy I can’t afford to do it for free. I’m sorry to decline, but thanks again, sincerely, for your kind words about my work."

9 Content Marketing Lessons From Tourism Australia

9 Content Marketing Lessons From Tourism Australia | Photography as content | Scoop.it

In this climate of economic uncertainty and risk-averse marketing, how did Tourism Australia manage to pull huge wins from their sun hats? The answer lies in their carefully constructed social media plan of attack and consistent execution.... In keeping with Tourism Australia’s goal to build the world’s largest social media team, they are currently training close to a million people working in Australia’s tourism sector to become brand advocates for the country by empowering them with the tools and know-how marketing One of the key takeaways for social media marketers from Tourism Australia’s story: don't be afraid to test and experiment on social media. A lot of times, marketers get fearful about testing and tweaking and don’t want to fix what isn’t broke. Tourism Australia has shown us the importance of testing constantly to find what works best for your niche, your business, and your customers. Making mistakes and being transparent just adds to the social experience!... Awesome social marketing wisdom...

Phillip Ennis's insight:

It may seem easier to market a naturally stunning location...but Australia's tourism page is leading the way with clever posts, audience engagement, and "newsjacking" - aka the art of using current news stories to promote your business and ideas. By allowing their facebook fans to post dated photos, Austrailia's page has images on their timeline that go back to the early 1900's! Well done, mates.

An 8-Step Social Media Marketing Strategy For Brands | AllTwitter

An 8-Step Social Media Marketing Strategy For Brands | AllTwitter | Photography as content | Scoop.it

An 8-Step Social Media Marketing Strategy For Brands If you’re a brand getting started with social media, it can quickly get overwhelming. Platforms such as Twitter and Facebook come with a pretty steep learning curve – certainly when used for business marketing – and to maximise return on investment it’s essential that you implement a winning strategy. For starters, you’ll need to empower the right employees to manage your social channels, sharing responsibility and goals. You must learn to listen to your audience, using specific metrics to analyse feedback and success. You’ll need to position yourself as an authority within your field, identifying the one thing that separates you from your competitors. And, perhaps most importantly, your brand needs to be human, as social media is very much about people – not logos. The infographic below presents an 8-step strategy for successful social media marketing....

How Enterprises Can Increase Productivity with Mobile Technologies

How Enterprises Can Increase Productivity with Mobile Technologies | Photography as content | Scoop.it
Mobile devices are here to stay. The challenge for enterprises is to contain the security risks so that the increased productivity, freedom and cost savings are not outweighed by the burdens.
Phillip Ennis's insight:

Smartphones & tablets are as ubiquitous in business as they are in our personal lives. I was drawn to get an iPad because I can share my portfolio with prospective clients, and regularly update the images without the cost of printing a new book.

 

However, there is something to be said for the impact a print portfolio creates. In the photography business, I believe the classic portfolio still outweighs the iPad (both in pounds and presentation)!

Real-life images of X100S in Vietnam | Peter Pham on DPreview

Real-life images of X100S in Vietnam | Peter Pham on DPreview | Photography as content | Scoop.it


Here are some images I took with the Fujifilm X100S that was loaned to me by my camera vendor in Vietnam. I have used the X100 and am looking to see if the X100S does indeed have the improvements. I tested this camera to see if I should sell my Carl Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 that I use on my Sony NEX-7 and buy this as a second camera. The two will produce the same 35mm equivalent with the aperture almost the same. If I did not have the CZ 24mm, then I would buy the Fujifilm X100S immediately, no doubt. Overall, the Fujifilm X100S produce beautiful and pleasant images right out of the camera, the colors are amazing as all Fujifilm cameras are. The AF is now very fast. Metering is accurate. Noise is one-stop better than all camera I have used and the same as my Canon 5D Mark II images, and this is amazing for APS-C sensor. The .jpgs are absolutely clean with great details. I set everything at 0, no NR, no sharpness, no saturation, vv...

 

I use 1600 ISO on all the low-light shots as I have no need to go higher. Also, did some macro and fill-in flash toward the end. Yes, that is me, my wife and daughter as models. The camera is easy to use, even my amateur friend took the image pin-sharp. Hope this helps anyone thinking about this camera.

 

Pros:

- 16mp sensors is awesome, just like the X-E1 I have tested
- ISO & noise control is supreb, one-stop better than my NEX-7
- AF is definitely faster. I sold my X100 because of slow AF, no more problem in the AF department
- colors rendition is beautiful and better than my Sony
- lens is exptremely sharp with details rendition in dark shadow area
- dynamic range is totally awesome, make me want to sell my Sony gear
- on-camera flash is superb as you can see in some of my fill-in images
- silent shutter makes shooting a joy
- aperture ring on lens is the best way to control aperture
- auto-iso setup is well thought-out and much better than the Sony implementation
- good battery life but not great, you will need several extra battery for one day shooting
- the Q button implementation is superb offering quick glance and setting changes
- ND filter built-in is awesome as I found myself using it on several occasions for f/2.0 shooting
- EV compensation dial is the most used dial and every camera should have one dedicated dial
- Hybrid OVF/EVF is excellent, though I used EVF 90% of the time
- build is excellent and all Fujifilm are "Made In Japan"

 

Cons:
- EVF still have lags, Sony NEX have better EVF
- LCD is still primitive compare to my Sony NEX
- 6fps as compared to 12fps on Sony NEX
- only +-1EV for AEB, not good for hand-held HDR
- cost $1300, I think about $1100 is the best
- screw on wide-angle adapter is not quick
- using it with filter, you have to buy adapter
- lens cap will drop and lose if you are not careful

The Creative Content Marketing Bar is Higher. Can You Reach It?

The Creative Content Marketing Bar is Higher. Can You Reach It? | Photography as content | Scoop.it

... Brands are hard pressed to stand out with their content marketing, often taking a “more is better” approach. As David Meerman Scott says, the marketing one hundred is now the marketing ten thousand. The bar for marketing is definitely higher, not just in terms of the mechanical vs. meaningful brand effort at publishing useful content and engaging on the social web, but for sustaining high levels of content and user experience short and long term. Avinash Kaushik describes that expectation well: “You can no longer be good at just one thing, or two. It is a 10-thing world now (and maybe a 20-thing world soon).” Sure, you can learn all the content marketing tactics and visual content techniques there are, but sometimes there are fundamental perspective changes that can make a world of difference in terms of how to approach the increasing demand for higher quality content over time. To that end, here are 4 key content marketing takeaways worth considering...

Social Network Overload from mylife.com talks about how people are addicted to social media, and what they rather do than give up their Internet lifeline.
