I got published in a paper without knowing!

One of my gig shots turned up in Cork's Evening Echo this evening. The band had sent it through to some publicity firm who in turn sent it through to the paper. I am of 2 minds about it, its nice to see your image in print, but it was a crap shot
I suppose it shows I have come on a bit photography wise, I'm getting narked because they picked a shot I did not care for too much. K-5 & FA43... what a combo

Nice. Come on then, lets see it! And it'd be interesting if you could show us the shot you would have chosen.

Thats just it, I would not have chosen a shot of the band together. They were too spread out over the stage and I was picking off shots of them individually.

Anyway. Published shot



Its the reason I picked up the FA* zoom

Can't you pull up the shadows a bit? Then it would be just the framing that was a bit wrong.

Funny, though, how your perspective changes, doesn't it? Somehow the fact that someone has chosen it for publication outweighs all the C&C in the world.

I take it there is no more of the frame available at the left?

Well done, though. It's a good feeling... (I've had it just the once, many years ago!)

Just makes me want to get better shots next time. And I learned a valuable lesson, bands want to be seen together.
Nothing on the left side, you can see I was hemmed in by a photographer on the left and there was another on the right. I had a quick play in LR (just shows how much interest I had in it) and this is the new slightly improved version.




The band are friends of mine. So no issue with them helping themselves.

Out of interest did the paper credit you for the photo as the copyright holder?

No, neither did they title the band. Just a picture for an article highlighting new talent in the Cork music scene.

I hope you'll be sending the newspaper an invoice.

Naughty of the paper - they shouldn't publish anything without having the approval of the copyright holder, suprised the band passed it on without at least making sure they had a mention too. If they haven't credited you then you've had no benefit whatsoever and they've had a free photo to go with their article. I'd certainly be in contact with them, it's happening far too often this lately!!
