  1. If you are using Sony gear there are apps available which are free, and useful. Use your phone as a remote trigger amongst others.
  2. What drone are you using? Is it 48MP, image, which I doubt from a drone, or are do you mean the file is 48mb uncompressed size? If it's a fish eye or wide angle lens you should check right to the edges for noise/blur etc.
  3. I would just keep the pictures which contain the flag outside the shop and let a buyer choose to crop that image if they need a bigger flag. The problem might be if you had the image available for print/personal use download etc... as someone might print it onto a tee shirt (very unlikely) and deprive them of a sale. I wouldn't sweat it for a single image. Let it go.
  4. I use Fine Art America to host my 'arty' type images, but for photograph I have my own website hosted by Photodeck. I moved my website from Zenfolio last year as there are some options which are better on Photodeck, but I haven't been too happy with the SEO, for what I think is a quite expensive site. The print/product sales and digital licencing options are very good with no commission taken for any sales, but, due to having a 'proper' job I don't spend enough time updating the website unfortunately, and find that it may just have become a vanity project with very few sales.
  5. If staff are furloughed they can't work, hence there will be limited employed staff to deal with everything. Maximising sales and looking after paying customers must surely come before contributors.
  6. So, are they chosen by a real person (I realise it may be different at the moment due to the virus problem)? There are also some NASA images still on the feed from yesterday which aren't captioned or headlined properly, so I wondered if there wasn't anyone at home?
  7. Can this image uploaded today (noted as being from 2017) be live news?, and, more importantly, does it get automatically pinged to news desks and pee off picture editors? Do all live news images get pinged to news desks? There are more from 'Newscom' as live news with images taken of mundane things, even from 2010!

  8. I have the rx100 iii and have had plenty of licence sales from it, no worries about dust bunnies and CA which I had with my full frame gear. It's also useful, when hooked up to the Sony software for live news, captioning, keywording and getting images up to the live news feed in moments straight from your phone, but it's not quite straightforward. My RX10 mk iv which I bought in winter gets more use, but the RX100 has not been discarded. The video quality and the ability to do timelapse is also another bonus with it.
  9. That will sit nicely above someones fireplace! I restricted all mine for PU... then had them unrestricted again as the value is nearly always higher than my average distro or newspaper sale, and there is always the chance to make more in the future from an infringement.
  10. I have an acquaintance (VIA Facebook) who does handheld stacks and seems to have mastered it. Here's an early one of his. https://www.oliverwrightphotography.com/portfolio/view/five-times-magnification-portrait-of-a-marbled-white-butterfly/macro
  11. There were two security people stooping movement only during filming. Sorry Chris, not trying to hijack your thread so I'll leave my problem after this snippet which I sent the film people. The general rule under Spanish law affords greater weight to freedom of information than to the right to privacy.Image rights under Spanish law entitle the owner to prevent the obtaining, reproduction or publication of his or her own image by a third party, whatever the aim pursued by the party taking the picture (whether commercial, scientific, cultural, etc). However, there will be NO UNLAWFUL INFRINGEMENT of these rights provided that there is express consent from the owner of the image or THERE IS A GENERAL INTEREST TO PUBLISH THE IMAGE AND THE INFORMATION IT CONVEYS.
  12. Is a film set in a public place, which can be viewed from a public place, any different too a publicly viewable display the likes of which you were shooting? I think not, but I'm not a lawyer. I hope that Alamy support you, or at least refuse to remove the images, as they should be safe re their T & C's.
