  1. the spy use film https://www.fotoimpex.de/shop/filme/minox-filme-8x11/ many grandpas, uncles... of today use also 110 format, 4x4, super 8... and if you make paranormal investigation, film is the choice.
  2. perhaps you have a better choice with FILM using the grandpa camera, yes film, developing film is fun today if you buy a full pro photographic equipment, big lenses, big filters, batts, cards, big computers, big software... unless you work for a friend with a big wallet or for a gov... I think a few guys recover the thousands of euros invested selling pics in today agencies marked for 0.50ç-50$. bona sort!
  3. felicitats! my first sale some years ago was a pic in the first roll with my new bronica
  4. hi, some days ago I enter to "my alamy" and see I are in the UK Newspaper Scheme - IN in green. I never entered this scheme so after 1 day I enter again in my alamy and now the correct choice is in red, OUT. A reasonable explain for this? Someone else also put IN or OUT contrary to what you choose??
  5. I received this from DACS for this year claim: [...] What’s new this year? This year we have reduced our Payback administration fee to 16% - a small share of the royalties which we retain in order to cover our operating costs - meaning more money goes back to you. We are committed to reducing our fee each year, and have lowered it from an initial 25% in 2007 [...] Congratulations and well done DACS! sadly the photo agencies go in opposite direction, low low sale prices and less cake for photographers. with current stock prices, maybe someone get more money from DACS than from selling the pics through agencies??? bizarre? so no wonder why people write wath write in "I no longer _____?"
  6. a good dictionary of synonyms and various search engines. door, portal, frontier, exit... of course in local "english dialect" and Gaelic +brexit +Scotland +Caledonia +...

  8. the market is overloaded with near free pics so your's pics need to be unique or, near all the others=near nothing.

  10. http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/06/06/the-reclusive-peeping-tom-photographer-and-his-cardboard-camera/ reproduce this in computer software? is better to go again to film!
  11. wow, this is a place in my jump list!!! not publicity this place or a lot of "tourists" make of this treasure another wasteland
  12. from the high contrast look. I think some pics of PT in web don't past alamy QC by reason of: "Soft or lacking definition" & "Camera shake"

  16. I have the same problem, no sales from 15 months ago. I think the idea for mantain possibilities of sell something is upload some "fresh meat" every 3 months at most, but the problem is how the search algorithm work. and when I upload some pics with another poind of view of some location NEVER before seen, fast, very fast, I see a lot of similars from anothers guys, AMAZING this is an exemple: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-Giant%27s-Causeway-Wishing-Chair-The-Keystone-World-Heritage-Site-1908315.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid={3942B8A3-5E51-4F59-9E82-50825FC5D5B4}&p=7911&n=43&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26sortby%3d2%26qt%3dgiants%2520causeway%2520Eire%2520%26qt_raw%3dgiants%2520causeway%2520Eire%2520%26qn%3d%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26aoa%3d1%26creative%3d%26videos%3d%26nu%3d%26ccc%3d%26bespoke%3d%26apalib%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26ot%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26name%3d%26groupid%3d3758%26pseudoid%3d3758%26userid%3d%26id%3d%26a%3d%26xstx%3d0%26cbstore%3d1%26lightbox%3d%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26apalic%3d%26simid%3d%26cap%3d1%26nasty%3d0%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d%26t%3d0%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3d&IsFromSearch=1 and another: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-Sagrada-Familia-1908275.html?pv=1&stamp=2&imageid={A4492F56-78A1-426A-BA35-89161BE860B2}&p=7911&n=43&orientation=0&pn=1&searchtype=0&srch=foo%3dbar%26st%3d0%26sortby%3d2%26qt%3dsagrada%2520familia%2520antoni%2520gaudi%2520i%2520cornet%26qt_raw%3dsagrada%2520familia%2520antoni%2520gaudi%2520i%2520cornet%26qn%3d%26lic%3d3%26mr%3d0%26pr%3d0%26aoa%3d1%26creative%3d%26videos%3d%26nu%3d%26ccc%3d%26bespoke%3d%26apalib%3d%26ag%3d0%26hc%3d0%26et%3d0x000000000000000000000%26vp%3d0%26loc%3d0%26ot%3d0%26imgt%3d0%26dtfr%3d%26dtto%3d%26size%3d0xFF%26archive%3d1%26name%3d%26groupid%3d3758%26pseudoid%3d3758%26userid%3d%26id%3d%26a%3d%26xstx%3d0%26cbstore%3d1%26lightbox%3d%26resultview%3dsortbyPopular%26gname%3d%26gtype%3d%26apalic%3d%26simid%3d%26cap%3d1%26nasty%3d0%26saveQry%3d%26editorial%3d%26t%3d0%26edoptin%3d%26customgeoip%3d&IsFromSearch=1

  18. most of this are inpracticable, most irrelevant, some like the photo.net options for photo "amateurs". I think this is a business and buyer oriented, so put options necessary to facilitate the purchase not for lost time looking, rating... pictures. my 2cents.
  19. yes I send the same data people say in the DACS thread, so I find this strange.
  20. bad taste, but if is a distribui- sale and you live in the euro zone... you get 30% of the sale - 21% € vs $ 30% = 265,50 - 21%= 209,74 € form 45$, bad taste
  21. hi, yesterday I received a mail from dacs asking for: "send us a fresh sales report including the licence details". Someone else has received??
  22. o well, another good option in advanced search, an option box for pics previously sold and another for pics never sold.
