I went to take one last look around at the choices prior to our meeting with Cessna this afternoon, and was underwhelmed by the photography.


Good grief! And somebody paid money for those? If I took a photo that looked that bad I think I'd burn the memory card & smash the camera.

While we're on the subject, mediocrity is endemic (as if we didn't know) here's the imagery a major interior fabricator is using to highlight their fine craftsmanship! And folks wonder why business is slow...........

One can look at this in several ways:

The world is our oyster, everyone needs us.....

The world just no longer recognizes quality, and doesn't want to pay for it anyway.

The iPhone is actually a camera.............

Jim, you're making my eyes bleed today One can say this in their defense, if there is one, that we are quite spoiled on MA2A and have had our standards raised very high as a result. You should invite them on here to see what great shots look like.

The gentleman who did my interior, Phil Trichler, has retired due to Parkinson's. I have not seen a nicer single engine piston interior in all my life. FLYING magazine called it "The better than better than new 182" after AOPA's "Better than new" promotion. Phil and his sweet wife are the dearest of people and they did it right, because that's the only way they knew how to do it. When I walked out to get in my plane upon completion, Phil and his wife had their hands on it and they were saying a prayer that God would bless it, keep me safe in it, and allow me many hours of enjoyment in His beautiful sky. That prayer was answered. Wish they could do our new one.

Sadly, I think its mostly your reason #2. I know a couple of people who buy images for various commercial uses and they often buy from microstock. And they've often told me, "Its cheap and its good enough."

Can't you just see the check boxes on the image list:

- Upholstery Close-up: natural light, ten stop gradient top to bottom.

- Cabin Master Photo: on-camera flash, not leveled (we don't need no stinkin' tripod).


Check!

Speaking of just good enough . This image graced the inside of the Dayton Air Show Program.

Now I know how to get sharp images pretty much all the time and have full circle prop blur.

It looks good to me, not fake at all. How about you?
