Last night I went to shoot crowd shots at an event by request of the organizer. As always when I do this I checkin with the pro-photographer to make sure he hasn't any problem with me being there and explaining my intent. Never have I had an issue until last night once I told the pro-photographer that I would be putting my pictures on Facebook. He went off on me like flies on molasses and I left respectfully.
Here's the rub Facebook is getting after adding a new feature last week. I've always put my event pictures on Facebook (by organizer/promoter request) so people can tag their picture for their Facebook. But Facebook has now added a new feature where people can download the full size jpeg at no charge. Which literally sinks the boat of any pro-photographer trying to sell their pictures.
Here's an example, please excuse the picture of me getting spanked by my grandson. lol Once you open the link go to the lower right hand side of the picture and you'll see the new function "Download In Full Resolution", then click on it.
I've got mixed feelings about it but the fact is Facebook is here to stay.
