  1. F22 - what is the point?

    F22 digital used to get a slow shutter speed without filters. Just experimenting, but will stick to the mid range apertures in future to avoid dust bunny hell... http://www.mickflynnimages.com/blog/2017/12/dust-bunnies
  2. A new one on me

    Yes, it was a poor quality snapshot, but theft all the same. My image on the right, the 'painting' on the left. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-FceMArL78N5ZxQ2XGokFAK2DJSOhjxI/view?usp=sharing
  3. A new one on me

    An artist used one of mine, an evening shot including the Chrysler Building in NY. It was found via Pixsys, but they wouldn't chase it. I contacted her and finished up with £250. She was prolific in her art, which involved projecting images onto MDF and painting them with household paint. She exhibited worldwide. My image was copied almost exactly, even down to the exact lights being on or off in each building!
  4. Certain rules for some?

    Not affected by the mural ban either?
  5. Stock photography, how to move to video footage

    Julian mentions removing all birds. I was plagued with bats! http://www.mickflynnimages.com/blog/2018/1/timelapse-with-sony-rx100-mk3 Timelapse is something I had been messing about with for fun, but I may try to up my game and submit for stock.
  6. You get what you pay for?!!

    I shot weddings way back in the 1980's, and used to supply around 70 pics, but never really enjoyed it. I've done a couple recently, digital, (still don't have my heart in it) and supplied around 100 images for them to choose prints from after explaining that they don't need over a 1000 pictures! The last wedding I shot was 128 images, with 124 worth editing down to prints. My normal job means I can observe weddings close up a few times a year and the trend now seems to be photographers who spend more time shooting decorations than people and constantly chimp every shot, even as they rat-a-tat-tat through the whole thing. Speaking to them, they supply well into the thousands of images on a 'custom' USB stick at full quality. Good luck to them, not my cuppa tea.
  7. I did a blog about transferring from RX1003 to iPhone a while back. I shoot RAW/Jpeg and leave them on the camera whilst saving an original on the iPhone. Just click the first link on the blog for the explanation with images. http://www.mickflynnimages.com/blog/2018/1/getting-your-settings-right-with-the-sony-rx100m3
  8. Local Paper

    Yes, that was my (then) local paper, part of Newsquest who were offering a split of £9,000 to the paper who could get the most free content in a year! It wasn't closed, but all dissenting commenters were banned from the group LOL. I originally blogged about it here... http://www.mickflynnimages.com/blog/2017/4/love-to-see-your-pictures-in-print Then got banned... http://www.mickflynnimages.com/blog/2017/5/banned-from-my-local During the winter weather a few weeks back they used a picture of mine (it was from 2015) and credited it as being mine... from the Facebook camera club. The editor agreed to pay me, but hasn't yet, so I will be going to the small claims court.
  9. Selecting Supertags and RSI

    Or fix the UI at source?
  10. Selecting Supertags and RSI

    Same here with me, could it be classed as an industrial industry?
  11. Tips from the Alamy stand at the Photography Show

    I would have liked to ask if ANY staff members use AIM themselves as contributors, and if so, why it hasn't been fixed when they took time off work with RSI?

  13. I should think that no building owner who is aware of this case would give permission to any graffii artist to paint on their buildings now. How do they reach the value of over $6 million if the artwork could not even have been re-located or used elsewhere,, and would have eventually been weathered away, painted over, or peeled off? ?
  14. Thanks Allan I found it and sent some brass.
