NNPS Episode 018 – Do What Is Great

Just because you can doesn’t mean that you should. “What the heck are these jokers even talking about?” is something that you reasonably may be asking yourselves regarding that statement, right? So let us tell you. Let’s say you have the ability to share 100 photos with your audience at the same time, should you? Photo sharing site, 500px, doesn’t think so. In fact, they’ve taken steps to actively restrict how many photos you can share (with a free account) and we applaud them for it. Listen up to understand why. We follow this up with a tough topic as it relates to major photo blog sites and whether they’re doing more harm than good under the guise of being “journalists” and “news sources”. Heavy stuff, right? Well, let’s lighten that load with another solid installment of “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” and call it good. High fives all around!

  • The hosts debate whether major sites like PetaPixel, FStoppers, DPReview, and others should be held to journalistic standards if they want to be considered news sources

    Posting too many photos of the cat isn’t much different than repeating the same thing over and over again when you want folks to continue listening. You got the point across in the first five minutes.

    Couldn’t agree more, I lose all interest in web sites that allow huge numbers of meaningful images to be posted. Personally I share a very small number of images. My website has a very limited number of images posted. Good work guys.
