the policy on gritty realism.

Policy of gritty realism ?



From the Bruce Livingstone interview: " Bruce Livingstone has set out to produce a collection of authentic stock images unlike anything customers will be able to find anywhere else. When he uses the work authentic he means a photograph that doesnt look staged, pretend, forced or unrealistic."

really!  well he better go for editorial work then. dirty workers with filthy hands and real female models with pot bellies and double chins. :D

Notice they never say real, just 'authentic' stock : ) It's tired old phoneyness. A real shot of shoppers on a street would be: dirty sidewalk with overspilling trashcans, all kinds of cars everywhere, and tired looking people in mismatching clothes holding on to wrinkled, disgusting ugly plastic bags. NOBODY wants that... and if it isn't that, it is a shined up stock shot. If you choose to process it with some film emulation filter, etc, it will be so new and so different to handful an virtual infants, but to an adult who has seen things it's just another, even older and more worn cliche than the micro-style. There's nothing wrong with selling stuff like that and they can even be really nice photos, just don't try pretend it's new and real and revolutionary... pls... it's just sooo exhausting... it's the home shopping network style.

Well each to themselves, live and let live and all that. The other hypo Offset dont promise to be much more does it? as I said in another thread. This is wonderful advertising, a bit of limelight here and there, showing people you are still around.
Now is it going to sell or not? thats another story. Somehow I dont think they are too worried about that as long as people are reminded they are there, still around.
I dont think he meant new as in new material. He probably meant something a little bit differant. better or worse. :)

Ok someone got a sale, great.  There is a place to post these finds so the forum doesn't get full of these kinds of posts.   http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/tear-sheets-post-your-finds-here/

No hate here and I'm certainly not criticizing anyone's work.  There is already a place to show off when you see your work in use.  I think this forum would be a lot worse if people started a new thread every time they found a Shutterstock or Istock image in use wouldn't it?

Pedantically, you are right, but with a new agency, people are naturally curious to know whether and how often there are sales, indeed the question has been asked. This Stocksy forum would indeed be worse if people were posting their iS or SS sales, but Stocksy sales aren't too far off the beam for this forum. IMHO.

I'm curious how well all the sites are doing, I don't want to see a new thread for every time someone sells an image though.  BTW I wasn't talking about posting Shutterstock finds in the Stocksy section, if I posted 1,000 different threads in the Shutterstock section they would be just as annoying which is why there is a sticky thread for people to post those finds.

Ok, I wrote: "I think this forum would be a lot worse if people started a new thread every time they found a Shutterstock or Istock image in use wouldn't it?"  "this forum" being Microstock Group.  If that was not the correct way to say what I meant then I hope this clears it up for you.

This was never a sales thread, it was merely to show a live site used by a Stocksy customer using the photo's in context.

Sadly I thought people here were curious, unfortunately MSG doesn't seem to be able to handle it, so there's no real point passing any more information on.

I'm not sure what "information" you were passing on other than someone bought an image and used it on a website?  There is a place to post that exact kind of "information", http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/tear-sheets-post-your-finds-here/

And the rest of us, other than 'the miserables' and 'everyone else' are totally neutral.
