the photography of meg daniels

Meg specializes in the unrehearsed moments in life; the single-frame-split-second-eye-catching-idiosyncratic-impressionable-figurative moments that we easily overlook. Her galleries contain pivotal moments that will never occur again. She invites you to take a peek and afterward, you might see the world a bit differently while driving home.

By analog standards, today’s Olympic photo agencies are plowing through nearly 28,000 rolls apiece

The second a photographer fires the shutter on a camera, the resulting image—a high quality JPEG, not RAW—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.
