Photographers and Artists

Unusable stock photos

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

Unusable stock photos

Postby Dave » Tue 24 Jan 2012 04:25 GMT

Ever seen a stock photo and wondered how the hell it ever got accepted?

Apparently there's a collection currently doing the rounds, of 60 that didn't make the grade.

You have to wonder what was in the heads of the people who set up some of these shots. Really.

I reckon a lot of them were brainstorming shots from an ad agency...
For Getty Images to have held them, they must have come from an accredited source.

Hmm. You're right, Ruggie - they're actually photos that shouldn't have made the grade, but did.

It didn't stop b3ta from using them to set their latest weekly Image Challenge, though. I reckon this one is the best so far - not only does it manage to use several of them, it also does it in a clever way.
