  1. Shooting less now. Bored taking pics of people in masks, empty beaches, closed shop etc. Sad state of affairs this virus has created.
  2. Thanks for the comment - appreciated
  3. Thailand child at the free food handout clearly confused at what is happening.
  4. The whole thing confuses me frankly. I leave all this up to my "techie" guy
  5. I may be reading this wrong as I'm no "techie" but using the full version all I see is that the catalog is using 264Mb only. I do not backup the catalog as there are no images in my catalog (which I don't use) as all are in sessions and these all sit on an external hard drive as previously stated. It seems to me therefore that C1 takes up very little space on my SSD H/D. Hope I got this right and that it helps !
  6. I live in a tourist city so people photographing all and everything including in stores is a given. Even when the store shows a "no photography" sign it's generally considered as meaning "be discreet". The theme stores e.g. Terminal 21 actually have a floor mark showing the best place for photos! Like others I use my Sony RX1001V and never a problem.
  7. Maybe this link will help to define the Catalog v Session option. https://www.azuloxworkshops.com/educational/capture-one/capture-one-catalogs-vs-sessions/ I've been using Capture One for years and have never bothered with Catalog preferring Sessions. Seemed a lot easier to understand in the "old days". Never had any problems or losses and I've switched computers numerous times.
  8. The real change for me is the "way" I'm shooting. Previously I was all for 28mm-35mm focal length and getting in amongst people and street markets, events etc. Not anymore I ain't. Social distancing is the call of the day now. It's been an 85mm and stood off and I figure it may be quite some time before I return to my previous modus operandi.
  9. Child having sanitized her hands now being led to join the free food handout for the poor and underprivileged of Thailand. Broke my heart shooting this stuff!
  10. "It depends a bit on what cameras you use, because for me that 512 ssd would fill up in under 2 weeks now" Hence my use of a WD external drive 6TB mirrored for image storage. When I'm travelling I take a smaller 2TB for storage and transfer to the larger unit when at home and using the iMac.
  11. I have an iMac with a similar spec and frankly have no preference in which machine I use. The iMac has a 27" screen and I do turn to that for critical work but as far as speed and ease of use there's little in it. I bought the laptop primarily for travelling but really enjoy sitting outside also when processing. The RAM is fine. You'll enjoy that machine.
  12. Yes - very good spec and fast. I have exactly this item. 😀
  13. I'm shooting about the same amount but struggling for material with the absence of people out and about and all the shops and malls closed. They've even closed down the beaches here , leaving the place like a ghost town. We still have our street markets but frankly social distancing in those places is impossible and as such they now scare me. And everyone wearing a face mask in what is regarded as The Land of Smiles!
  14. My views are holding steady so it would seem the market activity is there
  15. As with others zooms are down a lot but my sale rarely come from zooms and vice versa. Sales holding up well where I'm at 70% of last Mays total after 12 days. March and April where good months so hoping May keeps going strong.
  16. It should only be "Reminders" app that fails to synch. Well documented and apparently still an issue despite upgrade. Worth checking Apple forums before committing to an OS X upgrade that may create more issues. Just my 2 cents
  17. Similar to what I experienced last month so I've just asked Alamy to convert ALL my images as not available for PU and I've just opted out of Distribution which is getting sales at NU value.
  18. A suspected Covid-19 male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student female nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet." He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?" Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other. She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine." The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. But I actually asked……. "Are - my - test - results - back?"
  19. Actually we (the family) went into self isolation a few weeks ago, and Ive been occupying myself revisiting my keywords and captions starting from the oldest first. It's been an eye opener. Some of the captions I employed 10+ years back needed a lot of updating and keywords the same. It's boring, but productive I hope. I've ventured out a few times but chosen very isolated rural locations. We don't seem to have the same problems over here (yet) so fingers crossed. Keep safe everybody.
  20. I was just about to post the same finding. My latest views are dramatically down.
  21. I don't know what camera you use but mine has a rule of 3rds grid I can impose on the viewing screens which ensure all is kept level also.
  22. Sold twice to the same buyer for magazine and web use. Distro sale for low $$
  23. If they see you it's inevitable. It's some Thai/Asian thing. I have lots of market traders and people at work without the fingers. I just put these up to show how friendly they are over here as opposed to their miserable UK counterparts. Land of Smiles it is - always.
