Mount Rainier at sunrise with beautiful color and lenticular clouds, using 300mm lens.”Critique: “This is a beautiful golden, orange fall photo of Mount Rainier. The zoom really cleans up the foreground and background and lets the clouds, color and mountain star in the photo.
Seattle Times reader Tim Nicol’s image of a chipmunk balancing on an autumn-browned sunflower. Photographer’s description: “A chipmunk gathering food for the upcoming winter. Taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Tamron 150-600mm lens.”Critique: “This is a great fall photo of the little critter signaling that sunny days are behind us. The clean, out-of-focus background really makes the brown sunflower and the chipmunk pop.
Kalisa Beyer submitted a beautiful photo of a mountain sunrise to The Seattle Times. Photographer’s description: “Backpacking near Mount Baker, woke up to a beautiful sunrise. The rays of sunlight just starting to wake up the land. Used my phone, Google Pixel.”Critique: “The light in this photo has a truly magical quality to it that you only get when you are up to see the sunrise. The soft golden sunlight nicely contrasts with the gray clouds creating a nice balance to the image.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
