Passion for Pinterest and a Call for Input from Photogs
Those of you who have been following my original post about why I deleted my Pinterest inspiration boards (once again, I did NOT delete my entire account) and the surrounding controversy over whether I’ve raised legitimate concerns or am just making a mountain out of molehill can be clear about only one thing – that people are PASSIONATE about PINTEREST!
Of course, to turn all of this passion into profit (eventually), Pinterest is going to have to be pretty creative to adequately calm the concerns while still keeping the site the beautiful, interactive place that evokes all of this emotion. And that may not be an easy task. All you have to do is peruse the comments to my blog posts and read the spin off blogs and articles to see that nobody can agree on what should be done or even how we should proceed - not the general users, not the photographers and, perhaps most troubling, not the lawyers (which only illustrates my original concerns). But, isn’t finding a new, innovative and creative way to share the job of these Pinterest folks?
You can either comment here or you can email your ideas to me directly at Kirsten@ddkportraits.com. Of course, you can also send your comments directly to Pinterest if you would rather. Regardless, if you are a photographer who respects copyrights, I encourage you to use your voice to help make Pinterest a site that is responsible, safe and fun for everyone while respecting copyrights!
P.S.S (yes, there I go again) – If you think you can’t print a really nice 8×10 print from a low res pin, think again. A 650px x 800px 72 dpi file can make a gorgeous 8×10. I tested it last week and the detail, color and quality was totally frame-worthy.
