Hi Unclepete

No I did not notice - see what you mean though.  The one in the link is from B&H who sold me the slider and B&H insist this should work with my camera (GH5)

I'm in UK and the slider discount was worth the shipping charges from B&H (US) but $10 shipping for a little cable seems excessive. 

Good spot I'll bear it in mind when I get one from Ebay or whatever.

Thank you - really helped

Thank you - I'll get one ordered then. 

Photography Equipment / Shutter release cables for camera slider
« on: November 16, 2021, 15:19 »
Hi there

Just bought a slider for my GH5-S but need a shutter release cable for timelapses.

B&H recommend https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1054114-REG/vello_rcc_p1_2_5_2_5mm_remote_shutter_release.html/overview

But shipping doubles the price.  So if my GH5 has a 2.5mm jack and the slider has a 2.5mm jack - is that all I need to search on ie are all 2.5mm jacks the same.

Prob a stupid question but I just don't want to get something that fits but doesn't work.
Thank you

Yes I tried a while ago rejected with no reason why not sure if it was quality or sound aesthetics - haven't bothered since.

It is basically Getty and Istock's model release, download it from there.

Thanks I'll try that

I use the one from Shutterstock and had it accepted on all agencies.

Do you use the download version or the Docusign version please?

My template one is accepted by everyone except SS  who told me only docusign would do - it's a pain.

Thank you

Ditto - made some sales on shop windows (editorial) I guess bigger companies that make the news. 

Use copy space. It's very unnatural because you think your photo should be balanced

Yes I try and bake in some copy space in sometimes although I'm not sure it's unnatural one of the basic rules is rule of thirds so that automatically creates copy space (unless you fill the other thirds).  I'm sure it's possible to create balance and copy space - maybe a photo challenge.  But then again I don't have a pro photography background so what do I know.


Thanks - maybe it's a key wording problem or maybe I'm just not very good :-(

Must admit I like shooting diversity of topics got everything from mobile phone shots to local wild animals.  My port is mainly video but just started uploading more photos recently.  Got quite a few flowers in there too different sorts.

I'll keep at it - I really do genuinely enjoy it and have had some good runs - but past few months have been lousy painfully slow.

Thank you again for the advice I'll bear it in mind. 


If you can figure out your personal why and how, then use that, you can build.

Thanks it all seems so random and I don't really see a pattern although I seem to do better on unsaturated topics probably need to niche down a little more. 

Shots I've put heart and soul into rarely sell

crapstock LOL

I thought I was shooting (mostly) for stock - but my sales don't reflect it  :-[

Having said that some of best selling stuff is dead boring.

Hard to say really - my WS port is bigger than my personal port which still does get sales.

Thanks all - yeah about 3 years into stock - so I do try and lower my expectations for sales in August. But just odd that sales just stopped not slowed. I don't expect much from photo sales TBH.

Thanks again

General Stock Discussion / Wirestock - sales dried up
« on: August 16, 2021, 08:00 »

I have a 1.7k port and increasing with Wirestock that gets a few sales a month - had 0 sales in the past 3 weeks or so - totally dried up.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing a big drop in sales.


No problem with Adobe or the other agencies - just SS who tell me now they only accept the docusign versions.

SS won't accept any of model releases only their docusign one.  I queried it with them and got an answer something like we don't accept model releases with inserted signatures.  This has been for about 2 months or so.  It's a pain to be honest faffing with their MR when all the other agencies accept my releases with no problem. 

If SS don't accept inserted signatures why ask people to "download their Model release".


Newbie Discussion / Re: Shutter stock rejections arrgghh
« on: May 31, 2021, 07:49 »
My rejection rate (video only is very high past few weeks) got worse.

Rejected for "similar content" when the "similar content" was rejected for noise.  Uploaded them all few days later and accepted.

Model releases always rejected now - it seems I can't use a template Model Release anymore.  Only the docusign model release even though there is still an option to upload a model release.

I did send an email to SS but only answer I get is "rejections are frustrating blah blah".
