Watermarks: Killing The View

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 31, 2016 in Photography |

We all need to protect ourselves, in one way or another, and the Internet, as much as real life, is no exception. We shield ourselves with firewalls and anti-spy software, virus destroyers, spam filters and anything else which seems to be the fashion of the moment. Some are good and effective, some not.: we learn […]

Flickr Explored: Things I Don’t Understand

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 26, 2016 in Internet, Photography |

Everyone knows Flickr. the site where people can upload hundreds of photographs for all to see, have them rated, favorited, shared and – when the Creative Commons license is used – use themselves elsewhere. Most people also know that it has an Explored page: a selection of photographs picked out each day which are considered […]

Flickr: Not Fulfilling The Promises

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 29, 2015 in Internet, Photography |

The idea behind social media and social networks is to share: you live your life and let everyone out there, in Internet-land, who might possibly have an interest, experience all those wonderful things which have happened in your life. In reality no one gives a hoot, they just want a good follower / friend ratio […]

Recognition Software: Let’s Play A Game

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 1, 2015 in Internet |

If you’re worried about Face Recognition Software, take a look at a simple example which shows, such software has a very long way to go.

Every single day thousands of people upload their photographs – and other images – to Flickr, either to add to their collections, to show off what they have created, perhaps even sell examples, or to try to gain a place amongst the Flickr favorites on Explore.

My Internet Superpower Should Be…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2015 in Photography |

The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this. I wish I was the person standing behind the camera who was able to capture this single image, this moment in time forever. For me, as a very inexperienced photographer, it has everything that […]

Getting On My Nerves

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2015 in Internet |

Sometimes I have the feeling that if you compliment someone – or something – too soon after a change, things go bad. I don’t mean that a relationship sours off or anything like that, but what you have complimented, what you considered good, an improvement or whatever, tends to be overshadowed by something else.

Changes For The Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 14, 2015 in Internet |

Back in March, as some may well remember, I complained that I felt Yahoo could be killing Flickr with their advertising policy, with slow connections and so on.

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]

If you ever happen to take a glance at Flickr, a once higher popular photographic community recently taken over by Yahoo!, you will notice firstly that it hasn’t been abandoned by all the good photographers simply because of the change of ownership and, secondly, the selection of photographic works available there can be outstanding, inspiring, […]
