How the hell do you post those photos without the TT's permission. They were not even published yet?????
As I understand it, so long as there is a hyperlink going back to the TT site that takes care of the copyright issue.
Fair use, my friend. Fair use.
If only the pictures moved it would be as good as TV.
Yeah, but television will replay this to death. There is nothing better than a good photograph to capture an emotional moment in time.
Gripping photos produced under sad circumstances.It’s a shame the photographers’ hard work is ruined by bad cutline writing (and poor editing) in the TT’s photo gallery. Here are four fine examples:- Scranton Police holds one of the children that were pulled from a fire on Acker Street Tuesday, Feb 20, 2007.- Scranton Police attends to fire victims after a fire broke out on Acker Street Tuesday, Feb 20, 2007.- Scranton Firefighters climb away from a roof as the fire breaks through.- A Scranton Firefighter falls to his knees after exiting the burning house on Acker St. Did anyone in the newsroom read them before they were posted? More importantly, why hasn’t anyone bothered to fix them? Isn't there an editor who cares?
More IMPORTANT ....
The cutlines for the online photos were written by either a the photographer who took the picture or the online editor (who happens to be a former TT photographer).Either way, it is laughable that they made it online in that form.Where is the quality control?I guess there is something to be said in the name of haste.
Captions are written by photographers and edited or re-written by copy editors. Obviously that didn't happen in this case.
Regardless of the cutlines, good pictures.
Someone needs to tell mr. know-it-all critic that Jason works the The Times-Tribune, not the Times Leader as stated in the tag.
I believe the spped to get the photos up prompted someone to ignore the fact that the file info in photo shop dragged the caption (unedited) along with them.The photos were not tarnished because of this - Jason did an amazing job.As soon as they oversight was noticed it appears it was fixed.It wasn't wrong info, just unedited and cleaned up info. The readers surely appreciate the pictures Jason posted more than anything.
4:41, what an intellectually sophisticated observation. Kidding.
"4:41, what an intellectually sophisticated observation. Kidding." 12:31 AM, February 23, 2007Don't worry. All the Pulitzers go to photographers who were just standing around while the story came to them. And these days you don't even have to know how to focus or frame. The camera does one, Photoshop does the other. I'll take the gritty reality of TV news any day.
And these days you don't even have to know how to focus or frame. The camera does one, Photoshop does the other. You're not very smart, are you?
Smart enough to know point-and-shoot when I see it. Don't worry. I won't tell anyone that the T-L squeezes off its best pix on a Canon Digital Elf.Hey, those photo classes at L-C-C-C-C-C-C are really paying off! Now if only a class in caption writing was offered.
The photos were not tarnished because of this - Jason did an amazing job.-- Jason did an amazing job, agreed.As soon as they oversight was noticed it appears it was fixed.-- It took more than 24 hours.It wasn't wrong info, just unedited and cleaned up info. The readers surely appreciate the pictures Jason posted more than anything.-- Readers appreciate a solid, professional news presentation. If it wouldn't make it to print, it shouldn't have made it to the Web. Jason's work deserved more tender, loving care and he could have used the assistance of a reporter. It wouldn't suprise me if more people viewed those pics on the Web than saw them in print. It's about priorities and it seems that "new media" is only for show at the T-T.
Yes, kind of like this web site identifying Jason as an employee of the Times Leader for 3 days before it was corrected. Glass houses.
For the record, the error was in confusing Farmer with journeyman pitcher Ed Farmer. guilty as charged.
