tfttf649 – GAAAAH, NOT AGAIN! Cliché Photos And What To Do About Them

flattr this!

649

You take a sunset picture. Oh no, not again. HDR? Seen it all. Or maybe a color key where a red rose sits lonely in a sea of black-and-white? Clichés are everywhere in photography. Chris explores how bad it really is if you choose to shoot a cliché picture.

A word from Chris: TFTTF needs your help. It is hard for me to ask for money, which is why I don’t do it often, but in a episode like this one that doesn’t have a sponsor paying for the servers (there are three of them), for the production time (it takes at least three hours to make one single episode) and for all the rest of the invisible but all important infrastructure, your support is crucial to help keep the Top Floor lights on.
