  1. I picked up a 13" Hewlett Packard Pavilion laptop last year. Good screen, 512SSD drive. Lightning fast and editing my 30MP files from my EOS R is really quick. Was less than EUR 800.
  2. Got the email, too. I was accredited for the event in 2009 - but given the fact, that this is now 11 years ago, it's probably difficult to dig out any emails.
  3. Apart from the first three days in March, sales have been coming in at good prices. Touch wood!
  4. You are correct. But are picture buyers aware of it? I sometimes keyword the famous Canal Grande or Grand Canal in Venice as Canale Grande, because many people make this mistake and it might lead to sales.
  5. Really weird month. I had everything from $1.05 to $$$. Until two big sales only dropped in last week, I feared it would be the worst month for a long time. However, now it's above average, but still too many below $10 sales which, incidentially, made up more than 60% of my sales for January.
  6. I had 10 sales on 2 January ... before you get your hopes up, they were for $1.05 each. Proper sales only picked up on Friday.
  7. I bought a Hewlett Packard with a 512 SSD drive, 8GB RAM. Good screen. Haven't looked back yet. Cost 799 EUR. Happy.
  8. Where was the photo first published? Was it on your own website or did you submit it to a photo agency? If you submitted it to a photo agency, check with them first if it has been licenced for the usage you query. Did you submit your photo to the CFA and was it published on their website? If so, as you're a volunteer, they would still own the Copyright. If it was lifted by the party, you have a claim.
  9. I once looked through the slides in my aunt's collection and thought the ones taken in Rome were pretty good. That was until I realised that these slides were taken by professional photographers that were regularly sold on to tourists as souvenirs.
  10. Makes a lot of sense. When I restrict my images for "commercial" use, I always tick advertising AND consumer goods.
  11. Had one that went into QC as well. Was approved early the next morning. Phew.
  12. Just got the book "Shooting the Darkness" based upon the story of local press photographers in Northern Ireland when the troubles broke out. It's based upon the documentary of the same name. Some very powerful images there.
  13. If I'm using high ISO for blue hour pictures, I tend to upload them via the "reportage" route.
