I agree about that one completely, mr. John. Not a fan of the "constantly updated" photo threads...

Same here "Aaorn"

Seriously though, one of the reasons I grew bored with the photo section was the constant presence of a handful of "update threads" that, quite frankly, get boring after a while.

Thats a common thing over on SSC. Its also one of the reasons that I dont like to post threads there. I like to post my thread as more of a gallery to show a city or a period of time for my work.

Yup! Not to say I told you so, but this is exactly what I said would happen when the conversation was first brought up to merge the threads together. Another option would be to create a separate page for 'ongoing' threads, which I believe was also brought up way back when.

And yeah, Flickr sucks now. It's so hard to post photos to other websites. I dread the next time I make a photo thread. It was hard enough to copy all the image urls before hand...

I posted this link a few times before. Probably the easiest tool to make a photothread if you are using flickr.

As far as merging the two sections, there wasn't much of a point if the continuously updated threads did get moved to a new section. We are half way there, just need someone to make the next step.

I just sent my dropped and destroyed nikon 14-24 2.8 off to Nikon. Been putting it off for 6 months, I'm sure the bill to fix it will be about 800-1000 bucks. Yay!!

Let me know how your experience went. I had a defective D7000. Nikon admitted it was a defective camera and "repaired it" It came back with the mirror outside the camera. I sent it back. Nikon "repaired it," but it still rendered a blurry image. I sent it back again, and the images were nice and sharp but the metering was totally off when it was fine before.

I gave up at that point and just wrote off the camera as a loss. My company has been nice and is letting me borrow the Canon 5D for my trips as long as I'm careful and I absolutely love it. But I can't afford it! In the meantime I've reverted back to the old reliable D40. I don't think I ever took a good photo with my D7000, and I'm not sure I know of many people that were overly happy with it. Most people I know dumped it after a few months and got other cameras.

I don't have any experience with the D7000, but my D7100 is absolutely fantastic!

Can't believe Nikon "repaired" your camera so freaking badly. Pretty pathetic!

The future of photojournalism?


The Chicago-Sun Times laid off its entire photography staff this morning in a purge that cut about 28 staffers, according to the Chicago Tribune.

In a statement, the Sun-Times said the layoffs were due to a new focus "on bolstering our reporting capabilities with video and other multimedia elements." The wife of one of the laid-off photographers claimed on Twitter that this means Sun-Times reporters are being asked to use their smartphones to get pictures, while the Tribune reports that the paper will use only freelance photographers from now on. The whole truth probably lies somewhere in the middle, as more professional newsmakers are forced to confront the question of whether simply owning an iPhone and some hip filters can turn anyone into a decent photographer.

Didn't your mother ever tell you if you had nothing nice to say it's best not to open your mouth?

I had the D7000 for like 6 months and hated it, sold it and bought a D700. Still havent heard anything back about how ridiculously expensive it will be to fix my 14-24.

Taylor Emrey has a Tumblr up on this topic that compares Sun-Times photography post-layoff with its Chicago Tribune counterparts, here: http://suntimesdarktimes.tumblr.com

BTW, I agree with most everyone here that Google ham-handled their Flickr transition.
But where else are people going to visit to find their photo stock, aside from a general web search or places like Getty?
I've been getting a lot of stuff e-published via Flickr, once I've tagged properly, because Flickr seems to be where people search first.
But my sense is that this will change in the near future. Seriously bummed.
