I tend to keep an open mind about images from a large stock library. They can be very helpful if you are on a smaller budget but they do lack that personal touch and obviously will be used by other people. I saw a classic example of this the other day.
I was choosing a book to read and nearly passed one by thinking I had already read it, however on closer inspection it was a totally different book, just the same stock image!
The book Sand in My Shoes, is a transcript of Sir Tim Rice’s mother’s diaries during World War 2, in my opinion an original photograph of her would have been better.
What is your thoughts on this? I would love to hear what you think.
