Hi, I'm after some insights from Pro Band photographers on how are you making money?
Not because I want to follow in your footsteps, been there, had my fun. [I always got too drunk at gigs and it became hazardous to my gear]
I ask because I have recently become aware of artists such as Coldplay, LadyGaga and the Stone Roses, are asking for full ownership of merchandising and editorial rights. As I understand, you are allowed to sell your photos to one publication just once. AND you can't even use them in your portfolio.
Now I can understand the merchandising rights because they obviously don't want their band/faces printed on condoms or something inappropriate, but can you get a percentage for the photos they actually use for marketing?
As to the editorial rights, thats just plain greed.
It seems like they are getting photographers to turn up for free, work for free and then take all ownership of the work and use it to make money. Please tell me if I am missing anything, do you get a one off fee for turning up?
From an industry that is advocating artists copyrights and cracking down on pirated music, I find it highly hypocritical and upsetting that they would start trampling other artists rights just to earn more money.
Hopefully it's just a few artists with these demands.
With the EOS 1Dx, Canon has the best AF (after the f/8 focusing and black focus point fix), best frame rates, best low light ever, and of course the best pro sensor according to the rumored DxO leaks.
And it sucks for those using lower tiered Canon products with older sensor tech, but Canon's flagship has certainly been crowned the undisputed king of pro bodies. Hopefully now the lower tiered products get the same superior sensor in the future. May be 6D is that breed of new superior sensors coming out. Watch out sonikon, Canon is back with a vengeance!
Current kit consists of 450D, Nifty 50, 2 Old Sigma lenses pre digital, kit 18-55 and Yunguno 565ex.
I do family portraits and christmas cards for friends etc, as well as an wedding as 2nd shooter. I've done 6 this year.
Looking at the 6D as my next body as with event photography I totally see the limits of the 450 and need better High Iso performance.
So would it be alright to do Body and then down the road Tamron 24-70 since its half the cost of Canon 24-70L2 I know glass is a big limiting factor in image quality but if I could only afford 1 big purchase a year what would you choose? Camera then glass or Glass and then camera.
I'm considering picking up either the 6D or 5D Mk II, which camera would you expect to be better? How many 5D Mk II owners would swap their camera for the 6D? Are there any advantages the 5D Mk II holds over the 6D?
Comparably Nikon D600 The Canon 6D Is Very Embarrassing..
Canon 6D Has Superb ISO Sensitivity...
But Comparing With Nikon D 600..
Nikon D600 Have :-
:- Dual Card Slot, (Canon 6D Has Single) (So,Poor)
:- 39 AF Point, (Canon 6D Has 11)
:- Built In Flash (For Trigger Off Camera Flash) - (Canon 6D Don't )
:- 1,50,000 Shutter Durability, (Canon 6D Has 1,00,000)
Canon 6D Doesn't Have Such(above) Kind Of Facility..
Is Canon Need To Replace Canon 6D Body..??
Here's me playing with low key lighting
Ok, Nikon has 2 Stops of DR over Canon. Now go take some real photos Michael.
it's not the DR so much as the FPN
FPN is just ugly
take the old D90 for example
only 1 stop better DR at it's 200 ISO base than a 5D3 but that old D90 has a very random noise characteristic which is much more acceptable than the stripey noise most Canon bodies produce.
When it comes down to the gritty, I think even Mikael Risedal would prefer a camera with one stop less DR if it didn't have FPN to contend with.
RLP photo , you are one of the denialing persons who not accept measured data and at least 2 stops of DR avantage to Nikon and no bandingyou are really boring, meet me with facts, the grill is only a illustration and it is boring but true
Yes, of course, because DR graphs and test charts are the most exciting thing's in photography. :|
Michael, We already know that nikon/sony sensors are better but they're not that much better.
you are really boring, meet me with facts, the grill is only a illustration and it is boring but true
