Jens Olof Lasthein

I was searching for a Russian photographer that was so great in capturing “nothingness”. Didn’t find her/him. Instead, I came across Jens Olof Lasthein. He has distinctive signature not only because he uses wide angle panoramic medium but by his way of showing things as well.

Nikon 35ti, APX 100, D-76 1+1.

Shots from my first roll of CineStill film. CineStill is processing Kodak movie film so that it can be developed in C-41 process.

Won my film from a online photo competition :)

Don’t give away your photos


received this message from CrowdMedia.

Sounds nice, right? They think my photos are special and so they want to share them. And they will respect my copyrights! Plus, they will do the account for me. How considerate!

If you think it might be too good to be true, it usually is.

Straight citation from CrowdMedia Terms of Use:

"Your content may be used by publishers for editorial purposes, usually to illustrate an article that is coherent with your content.

When a publisher uses your content through our platform, they have to pay for that content and to give you proper attribution at all times.”

It doesn’t state who the publisher has to pay for. For the photographer, right? Well, only after asking CrowdMedia, I found out that their provision is 50% of what publisher pays for.

There’s also other issues I can think of. For instance, you upload a photo of your daughter on your Flickr account and it’s used on CrowdMedia. Next some blogger searches for an image with keyword “girl” to fill his/her post covering child abuse. And now your daughter gives the face for child abuse. Splendid.

Be careful people!
