It is hard for me to agree with that, because it splits a hair in a way that is not genuine. For example, when i owned my art gallery, I would go to my represented artists studio to take photos when they are working. Yes it is a portrait. Yes they are working, rather than sitting in stereotypical pose like sitting in a chair holding paint brushes, and touching their chin like they are deep in thought. But these more natural looking photos are not candid, the artist (subject) knows what i am...

Street Style Portrait Photography

@Ted I am addressing your tribunal comment here, because I cannot on the platform. This niche is a "made up" photography term, it isn't a thing. That is why i am saying it is inaccurate. The very nature of what street photography is, contradicts this description. Your comment seems to be talking about redundancy. Which is not my grounds for appeal. Wiki "Portrait photography or portraiture in photography is a photograph of a person or group of people that captures the...

So chatting with Emily, I've come to understand the problem as follows. Street Photography is a duplicate of the older Street-Style Portrait Photography. In essence, there is no real uniqueness that properly demarcates the two. BUT the older niche has an unclear description, and trying to change that description once you buy it may well be rejected because once clearly described, it will be far more apparent that it is essentially the same as the newer, better described Street Photography...

Pending a response from the Narrative team, here is my sense of the best way forwards. We should keep the policy of older niches having priority over newer ones, when considering redundancy, EXCEPT when the newer niche has been purchased, and the older one remains unpurchased. In this situation, this would allow @Emily Barnett 's partner to buy the more recent, better named and more clearly described Street Photography niche, and then immediately lodge an appeal for the older, less well...

So the description of the niche you are downvoting is: I did look at it: I promise! I wouldn't have jumped in with such an involved response without looking at the niche under discussion! I don't see anything in this description that is incompatible with the opinion that candid street portraits are a thing. I only see a problem with this description if I subscribe to your approach, which says that a street portrait cannot be a candid one. I don't see a reason to subscribe to your approach,...

@MOLLY O @Ted given the rules of Narrative, my only recourse was to try and get rid of the unclear niche, so that the platform can move forward on getting a niche that actually describes this lesser understood, yet very popular form of photography. I doubt that there will be buyers for either niche with the way it exists right now, under the current rules. This is part of the problem, that we have been trying to talk about in previous threads about the growing amount of parked niche...

I disagree with your scenario. A portrait is collaboration between subject and photographer, based on mutual acknowledgement of the camera. Even when this happens with no verbal dialog takes place. Candid doesn't mean a natural pose, it means without knowledge. So in your scenario of the italian woman in the market, it is a candid photograph. It would become a portrait if you asked her permission, and she became aware of the exchange between you. Only the moment of surprise when a subject...

Thanks @Emily Barnett - that last message helps me understand where you are coming from. I respect your perception of this situation. I do however think that people won't be confused by the niche. Could the description be better - certainly... but I think it still gives a good sense of what kind of photos are intended to live there. The main issue seems to be with your binary approach to candid vs portrait, with a moment where one becomes the other, and without room for shades of grey...

Hi Emily, can we agree that there is such a thing as a candid portrait? That seems to be the crux of this matter. Ah, ok just saw you don't agree with the term Candid Portraiture. So it sounds like it is not a clear cut situation that all photographers agree upon.

Hi @Emily Barnett Thanks for this in depth foray. My knowledge of photography is informal so I had to read up on some of the definitions to supplement the understanding I have carried with me through the years. The question I have, regarding your approach is this: since one of the categories of portraiture is 'candid portraiture', why can't some street photography be street portrait photography? The candid approach to a portrait favours spontaneity and can indeed take place without the...

Some visual clarification. Street photography from a book on the history of street photography. Se how they are not posing for the camera. it is candid. even the guy who sees the camera is caught of guard and not posing for a photo. A Portrait taken outdoors. The subject is aware that his photo is being taken, and has readied herself for the moment. Just because this person doesn't have the correct vernacular doesn't mean that narrative doesn't have to either. We can reject the inaccurate...

This Niche isn't called Candid Portraiture, it isn't called Candid Photography and it isn't called Street Photography. It is unclear what the direction is for the niche. It is unpurchased, after almost six months with other people, clearly looking for street photography as an active niche option, given the three other niches in street photography suggested. Well I guess we just see what happens, so far nobody has purchased it, and i think it is the description, not the desire for the niche...

@Emily Barnett and @Malkazoid . Thanks for all this discussion on the topic. We are discussing this internally to see if we need to tweak the model around if there are two duplicates and one is Active (purchased) - who should the winner be? We are looking at all the other possible scenarios (e.g., bids occurring at same time but payment first??) before we get back to you on this so that we can address it all at the same time.

Fantastic @MOLLY O . I can see you were able to absorb the essential takeaways from our ramblings - I'm thankful you did. It took quite a bit of @Emily Barnett and I getting lost in the details of the faulty description of this niche, before we were able to step back and focus on the systemic problem that is the real consideration. Sometimes the trees really do hide the forest.

@Malkazoid . I was getting a bit lost trying to understand the issue at the beginning (while learning more about photography) so I really appreciated how you distilled out the bigger issue.

@Emily Barnett . This is what the Alpha is for Self governance is a brand new thing we are tackling…such an interesting social experiment. Keep in mind that as we discuss this issue, we are also thinking about how rules can be automated in the future so Tribunal doesn't have to go back and research the voting history and other things.

Agreed it is fascinating, and cannot be easy to implement. As community, I think we see the issues coming before we have an actual example because using it is what we are focused on, where you guys are using it, building it, and promoting it simultaneously. I am just glad that such an example now demonstrates the issue that we were alluding to before, and some solution can be resolved in alpha.

I don't think it's even necessary to remove reputation accrued from the suggestion, as there are some well thought-out niches that have remained unpurchased since I joined in the autumn, but they just aren't that popular for people who know they're limited to owning 5 niches. But purging un-purchased niches after 6 months would make it easier to rid the system of the truly awful ones that got approved anyways, and it provides an opportunity for other unpurchased niches to "hit the front...

Hello all. I'm into fitness and collecting vintage t-shirts and I just wanted to know where I should go to post? Niche, narrative, personal or what? I don't see any buttons for these categories. Any help would be great.

Hi there! Narrative as a platform hasn't launched yet, but those topics would be fantastic for Niches when we go live. This community is just a placeholder space for support, as we hold our token sale. The first big milestone for Narrative will be launching the Niche selection Early Alpha version, on March 22, after the token sale is over. Stay tuned, and I can't wait to see you around!

-Niche selection Early Alpha version, on March 22- On my B-Day? OMG-OMG-OMG !!! Seriously, though this is a pretty cool platform. I have a question, The founders circle or whatever get to "buy" niches first? Do different niches have different pricetags? How do I reserve The "Italian Cooking" niche?

@Robert W. well now we know what to get you... The Founders will get a short head start (probably 24-48 hrs) on reserving Niches, but there will be a limit to how many they can reserve. While the white paper goes into detail on how Niche pricing will work once the platform is running and active (it will be a formula based on the prior year's revenue for that Niche) , we will have to come up with a fair pricing scheme for the initial launch. Details on that will be announced, and you guys...
