  5. Today
  6. I am going to upgrade from Mac Sierra to High Sierra and I want to know if my existing password to log into Alamy will still work.
  7. The only thing I've been able to grow is a beard. That's odd, since my father and his two brothers grew up as florists in Brooklyn. Fitzsimons and Rooney was a famous florist store on Court Street in Brooklyn in the early 1900s.

  11. Wow, that's a lot of information to take in. I am very jealous of your garden, but needs must, I am in a flat in London, but hubby has an allotment, so I'm not too bad on veggies but flowers another matter. It's great to have you on the forum as you're a mine of information. Thank you very much Janet

  15. It's really a combination of academic training and strong interest accumulated over many years. I'm a research biologist/ecologist by original academic training and have been a keen gardener for more years than I care to think about. In my spare time I used to write articles for UK and US gardening magazines, started a gardening blog in 1997 and needed images which forced me into developing my plant and garden photography to pro levels. Since retirement as a commercial IT and systems trainer I've been able to volunteer at The Garden House near Plymouth, one of the top 100 gardens in the UK, where I do a lot of their photography and help with their marketing. Part of my own garden: Where I volunteer:
  16. Sorry if this is a dumb question.... and hello all! Very new here just stepping across from wedding photography. Just filling out a property release form and not sure what to put for the "Property Release Number" I'm guessing my own prefix followed by 0001 and so forth? TIA!! Trev
  17. I suspect that many of us, though often only on the sidelines, appreciate and benefit from advice and critique given here. It would be unfortunate if the responses of a few were to discourage those kind enough to offer their time and consideration in a helpful effort. Please don't underestimate the value of your help to those not directly participating.
  18. After a few years of steadily rising sales and income, I have seen a reduction in both, although more specifically income. So I also need some answers! Looking at your work Will I am seeing a good variety of subject matter from numerous interesting locations, but, in addition to the more obviously commercially attractive work, I am also seeing quite a few similars and a number of, in particular landscape, shots that are rather bland. Pruning might help, but who knows, the game is changing all the while.
  19. No Allan it's fine. John, how did you become such a flower expert? Janet
  20. You didn't say what the subject was nor the use. Does the subject move? At what speed? What light levels? Is the subject stationary? - could include models posing. Are the images going to be printed? Published on Facebook? Alamy? Billboard? You get the idea. So this is very general: Play around/practice at home at the expected light levels and see at what shutter speeds your images are sharp enough. And what level of graininess is acceptable for the purpose. Not RAW but very useful is the handheld twilight scene mode. High speed continuous drive and RAW will do the same, but then you will have to do the editing by hand: delete all less than sharp images from the burst and stack/median the rest in Photoshop. After practicing at home, do a test run at the actual venue. wim
  21. I agree with the premise of not adding keywords of things that aren't in your picture, but in this case I would include the type of tree as it is fairly prominent in the image. Having said that, I can't think that any one looking for a picture of a maritime pine would be too interested in this one. I always try and describe what the picture is about (imagine telling someone that can't see your photo what it is all about) and put that in your caption. Then pick most of the words in the caption as tags (keywords) with the most relevant being supertags. In this case I would have maritime pine as just a tag, not a supertag. John.
  22. Many thanks for the information John. You are a fountain of floral knowledge and much appreciated by all the forum members.😀 Allan

  25. I changed back in 2014 to using mainly external Thunderbolt drives for data and a smallish internal SSD as the OS drive. Works really well for me and is really fast - faster now no doubt as well with Thunderbolt improvements in terms of speed. I would not get a Fusion drive when I next upgrade. The notification centre is where they notify you of updates funny enough 😀. You might be able to change it but it seems pointless having Automatically check for updates on and not knowing about it 🤔.
