    +1 Or if they are as popular as we think they are, triple the price.

  4. Thanks MDM, I'll ponder it a while, as I have very flaky internet and don't use cloud storage, so not sure if it will try to drain my data.
  5. I haven't had an upgrade to LR since going up to 5.6. Is it worth going the CC route (I dont have PS) or are there not many differences?
  6. Time to thin the herd?

    It's pointless, it's like suggesting that Alamy remove all pics from contributors with less than 'say' 200 images who have never sold a licence... they won't... just in case.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. Certain rules for some?

    Not affected by the mural ban either?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
