IntroEdit

You can leave a message here. I am usually pretty good about getting back to notices and messages, but if I'm not it's because I'm not currently doing anything with Wikipedia at the moment. I'm always available through email, and you can email me through Wikipedia or you can do it directly at evan.amos /at\ gmail.com.

Product photography (part 2)Edit

 
A "Red Rafflesia" ring

Okay, I know I need a light tent for something like this. My question is: do you know if a polarizing filter would stop the room from reflecting in the stone? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:05, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Curved, glossy objects can be very difficult to photograph without the reflections. Most of the time, it's a case-by-case basis on how to solve it. I usually employ large reflector boards near the object or stitch together two different photos in Photoshop. A polarizing filter can help, but I've always found them to be annoying and somewhat hard to use when taking product photos. I tried it a couple of times, then fell back onto other methods. Evan-Amos (talk) 18:08, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Stitch together two different versions... what's the difference between the two versions? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:02, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
With reflections, normally you'd build something to block the reflections all around the object, but sometimes you can't because of space or lack of materials. In that case, you can cover half of it, then the other half, then stitch those two photos together in Photoshop. Evan-Amos (talk) 13:33, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Congrats Evan...Edit

You have your own article on Wikipedia. Evan Amos. Cheers. GamerPro64 18:10, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

LightingEdit

Hello. I was admiring your photographic work and wondering if you would be willing to give me some tips for achieving such even and pleasant lighting. I'm very new to photography, but I'm already quite hooked. I wanted to try my hand at some products and coins and whatnot, so I'd love to know how you make such lovely images. RO(talk) 15:23, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

I mostly use "copy lighting" and shoot on glass. It's an easy enough system to replicate, but you do need softboxes and strobe lights. Evan-Amos (talk) 10:38, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 14:27, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Joystick port imagesEdit

The editors at VG suggested I ask you directly: would you mind providing some images of the Atari joystick port itself, both the plug on the sticks as well as the port in the console? I'm writing an article on its many uses, including AtariLab, but I cannot find any free-use images. Maury Markowitz (talk) 20:13, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

  • I took these, which could be suitable if a higher quality replacement cannot be provided by Evan in the short term. Let me know if you want them up on Commons or if you'd rather wait on Evan to provide actual quality pictures (which would be my recommendation). :)  · Salvidrim! ·  15:18, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Milk-Duds-Box-Small.jpgEdit

Thanks for uploading File:Milk-Duds-Box-Small.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:29, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:Nilla-Wafers-Box-Small.jpgEdit

 

The file File:Nilla-Wafers-Box-Small.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The article Nilla has two fair-use images, thereby making one of them redundant.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Request for a better imageEdit

Do you own a Walkman? I really like your photos and wanted a better picture for the original Walkman for the article. its not of high importance, just a request.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 23:24, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

I do not own a walkman, or at least a classic one. I thought about getting that iconic one a while ago, but it is really expensive and difficult to get, especially since it was featured in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Evan-Amos (talk) 01:08, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
Oh that's terrible. Oh well. thanks for letting me know.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 21:36, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
I may have access to an original Walkman. If I do end up getting one, perhaps I can lend it.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 22:45, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Device suggestionEdit

Hope you don't mind if I ask, but can you, by any chance, take photos of LeapFrog products such as the LeapFrog Epic if you ever get your hands on one? I did a render some two years ago but given your expertise in documenting gaming devices of yesteryear, I think it would be an interesting addition to your collection.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Maltesers-White-Wrapper-Small.jpgEdit

 

Thank you for uploading File:Maltesers-White-Wrapper-Small.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator seven days after the file was tagged in accordance with section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.

This bot DID NOT nominate any file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 01:00, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
