    Default  Getty and AP Photo Agency Workflows in Sochi - Published Worldwide in 2-3 minutes!  
      
      

    Some pretty mindblowing stuff here:

    http://gizmodo.com/the-inside-story-...e-s-1521746623

    The second a photographer fires the shutter on a camera, the resulting image—a high quality JPEG, not an uncompressed RAW file—is transported by ethernet to Getty's central editing office in about 1.5 seconds. There, a team of three editors processes the photo. The first selects the best image and crops it for composition; the second editor color corrects; and the third adds metadata. The whole editing process is done in 30-40 seconds. Once the last editor is done, the image is blasted to the world. It takes about 90 seconds for the images to travel over redundant 100 Mbit/s dedicated lines to Getty's data servers in the the United States.
    There's also a really interesting section on the amount of artistic interpretation allowed with each of the two major agencies. Getty does most of the "artistic" stuff like the composites, the tilt shift photos of the venues, and other more interpretive photos.

    I'd love a chance to hang out or even shoot at an event like this.

    ugh, I'd kill to shoot slopestyle or halfpipe or basically anything skiing or snowboarding, even alpine events or XC...
    I own this joint!
    gear list.
    yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today is a gift, that's why it's called the present.
