One thing I dislike about being a workhorse for an organization - sometimes I get left behind.
In this review of The Caretaker, yes, that’s my photo, the one you’ve seen a hundred times, in the Globe, and the Metro, and all that.
But did he really have to go and deface it with text?
I mean, really.
I’m lucky enough to have an arrangement with the theater that images are all in my copyright, but they have license to edit and distribute, but THEY are they only ones who get to do so. I realize that once it’s out there in the hands of the press, there’s not much I can do about it.
But still. It makes me sad to see that someone doesn’t think my image is good enough (and I realize THIS was not my best image, but there are plenty of others he could have chosen), so he must alter it to be something that is no longer a photograph, but a composite image.
Not to mention that that text/font/treatment/etc is horrid in and of itself.
What are your pet peeves with setting your photos free in the world?
