3- PROCESSING YOUR FILES

 

Once we have received your email we will create a new sub-folder in the 3. PROCESSING (DON’T UPLOAD HERE) folder to process those images. We will select those which we feel are in-demand and saleable to our clients.

 

We will move the images you have uploaded into this new sub-folder.

 

Then we will select the ones we wish to accept, and move those not selected to the 4. IMAGES NOT SELECTED folder.

2- HOW TO WRITE A GOOD CAPTION

 

We require a detailed caption for each image selected. A good caption should answer the questions: “who? what? where? when?”.

E.g.     “Sisters (8 and 5 yrs) playing together at Coopers Beach, Northland”
           “Farmland looking north towards Coromandel township"



GUIDELINES


AGE AND AGE GROUP:

Please use the following formats:
    “Boy (8 yrs)"
    “Man (50’s)”
    Toddler, teenager, retired etc.



RELATIONSHIPS
The relationships of people in the photo.

   "Couple (20 and 24 yrs)"
   "Sisters (8 and 5 yrs)”,
   "Grandmother (60 yrs) playing with grandson (2yrs)"



CULTURAL IDENTITY:
Please add your subject’s cultural identity if known as clients search on these terms
E.g.     Maori, Japanese, Samoan.

Note: only use the term ‘kiwi’ in its real sense - e.g. for the actual bird itself or for the kiwi icon. Don’t use it for example in “Kiwi family swimming at the beach”


LOCATION:
Please check the spelling of terms / locations if you are unsure.
There is no need to add “North / South Island”, “New Zealand”. These are covered by us.
If the image is a generic one (e.g. close up of sand) or a studio shot, there is no need to provide a location, unless you consider it important.


TIME AND SEASON:

Give the time of day if relevant
e.g.     sunset, dawn, sunrise


ACTION:
Use “–ing” words rather than “–s” words - e.g. “Girl playing in sandpit” not “Girl plays in sandpit”

Use technical terms if known – e.g. drenching (farm activity), karabiner (close up of climbing gear)


Add any non-obvious concepts - e.g. depression, conflict, confrontation, negotiation, exhaustion, and any nonobvious activities - e.g. whitebaiting, homework, etc.



ANIMALS:

Use specific breeds of animals if known – e.g. Friesian, Hereford, Jersey - or types of crops - e.g. wheat, rye, barley



SCIENTIFIC NAME:

For flora, fauna, sciences, etc., if you can, enter a scientific/latin name (optional).
This allows you to enter the scientific name for those who need it, without cluttering up the caption. e.g. “Zosterops lateralis lateralis”



ADDITIONAL WRITING TIPS:

- Minimise the use of ‘filler’ words such as “a”, “and” and “the”.

- Minimise the use of capital letters within the caption – don’t capitalise ordinary descriptive words.
E.g.     “Farmer milking Jersey Cow on Dairy Farm in the Waikato”

- Do not use full-stops at the end of the caption.



USEFUL TIP FROM A GEEK:

If you are using lightroom and if there is a caption embedded in the IPTC data of the image, this will be extracted and automatically imported in the submission platform when you upload your images. You will have the opportunity to edit this caption at the captioning stage.
