Wednesday Tech Tip: Editorial Images

Cutcaster loves editorial images.  However, we prefer images of celebrities, politicians, newsworthy events ( like natural disasters), and professional athletes.

When submitting editorial images, please keep the following tips in mind:
  • Parades, joggers, your son’s karate lessons are great, but not what we’re looking for.
  •  Never never submit pictures of people’s backsides (like at the beach) without their permission.
  • Don’t submit pictures of kids without parental approval (even kids in other countries).
  • Portraits of indigenous or ethnic people are wonderful, but please get a model release.
  • Be sure to use names when photographing sports figures.
  • We will be culling a lot of editorial images from our collection that do not have proper names, places, etc.
  • Be sure to mark recognizable and significant landscapes such as historic building exteriors (where people are not the focus of the shot) as editorial.
 Still have questions? Check out the images below for examples of the kind of pictures we are looking for.

Wednesday Tech Tip: What to shoot for the holidays

The holidays are quickly approaching, and Cutcaster needs your shots! Christmas is always a popular search, but we’d love to offer Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Kwanzaa and other winter celebration submissions (solstice?). We’re also looking to add more images of winter beyond the typical landscapes and snow covered trees. Take a look at what we already have and then think outside the box- what else says “winter”? Focus on shooting people; think about what kind of outdoor activities you can shoot. Winter is full of possibilities; explore fresh perspectives on old themes.

For inspiration, check out this blog featuring 31 Christmas light photos. Each one uses the warmth or color of the holiday lights, but with very different compositions and themes.

Speaking of holiday lights, candle light can really set a beautiful mood. Check out these Hanukkah candle light shooting tips.

Featured Collection: Cats

From Grumpy Cat to Lil Bub and all the adorable kitties between, the internet is obsessed with cats. At Cutcaster, we too have love for the kitties, so much that we created a whole cat picture collection full of photographs and vectors of the fluffy felines.

This time of year, as we approach the Halloween holiday, our mind turns to the dark side of cats: spooky black cats. There are many to be found in our cat lightbox!
