The Devaluation of Photography

The Devaluation of Photography: Denyerec blogs about the new trend for people to upload their high res images online and sell them through web based stock photography sites for pennies on the dollar. He obviously does not like the idea. “Good images are simply worth more than that. Equipment, time, travel, expenses and gosh-darn, bloody experience. To see people throwing good images that have cost them to produce onto sites like this just makes me sad. Will there come a point in the future where there won’t be any such thing as a professionally produced image, because people have become too accustomed to paying $0.77 for a photo?”
