  1. I have been using Sony mirrorless for four years. If I were building a system from new I would chose between Sony/Canon/Fuji. Sony is the most complete mirrorless system at the moment, and has pioneered mirroless tech. I don't think the declining market will carry four companies: Olympus is looking at the exit door and Nikon is on choppy waters. I would not invest in DSLR, it will be gone within a decade and you risk stranded assets, or will end up adapting old lenses to the newest technology. https://petapixel.com/2021/03/03/nikon-only-has-7-5-share-of-the-mirrorless-market-report/
  2. Moved from Sony A77 to A7rRII and will add the A1 when it comes down in price in a year or so. Can't imagine I would ever want anything heavier, unless there was an overwhelming technical reason. Will add an APSC Sony at some point for even less weight. Can't see any manufacturer making DSLRs in about 5 years.
  3. Hi Buddy, Yes, I like the tree and the buildings. I have been trying some multiples like that, but clearly need more exposures. Any pointers? I suggest you also upload the straight image you did of the subject. They will fit a news article about a building or even a reference to a type of tree. I upload about 1000 images a year. Marc
  4. There is some creative work in there. As said, your captioning needs to be more literal and accurate. Alamy is a stock site, and I do wonder if your more creative shots will sell here. Any creative images I have uploaded have been ignored, while more prosaic stuff sells. As said, it's a numbers game. So get your portfolio up to a few thousand before you start wondering about sales. I like the impressionist effect. Is that done in camera or post?
  5. I expected lower zooms from CV-19, as news is dominated by CV-19 and BLM coverage. But not sure why such a drastic crash in June while they held up in April and May.
  6. I have had no new zooms for about 15 days now. Very unsual, as my zooms have been fairly consistent for years as has my ranking. Three images sold in the same period (not zoomed, or at least zooms not registered). Anybody else experiencing the same crash in zooms numbers?
  7. To some extent it is about the difference between a photojournalist and photographer. The former is there to record what happens, and wants the shots that define a protest. There is a lot of nonsense being perpetrated about the MSM, and "fake news" (as if political propaganda is news and the non mainstream media is not riven with bias). The good thing about a photo is that it can covey a simple truth.
  8. Rather than spend time trying to correct the skin tones, why not just gel your interior lights (providing they are not too hot) and then white balance the camera https://www.stagedepot.co.uk/lighting/lighting-gel/high-temperature/65-daylight-blue-lighting-gel-sheet-1?gclid=CjwKCAiA5o3vBRBUEiwA9PVzandAFiOs0Qxtz4f_UBgTTZJp_xpH5FP3JdPYnIEDvC8cgt9Zw1p0pBoChAIQAvD_BwE Or block out the natural light, and then white balance Also, if you are looking to sell these images, I would get a manicure.
  9. The Savile Row gig was the last time the Beatles played live together: 1969. They only managed one song, Get Back, as the police were called to stop the noise. Did your Dad end the Beatles?
  10. I am also a writer and make a small distribution magazine (about 7,000 per issue). We often featured film, TV and theatre stories, and when I need an image to illustrate the story I will go to the relevant press and PR company and get the images I need. In the case of the War of the Worlds I would go the BBC. Newspapers and magazines will all have images ready to go.
