  1. Iain does frequent these forums.. maybe he'll spot this post and let you know his thinking! 🙂
  2. Personally I am staying at home as much as possible. The occasional trip to the supermarket when food runs out is as much going out as I plan to do. As a father of two children, however, who are no longer at school given as all schools are shut, what I have been taking pictures of is our attempts to educate our children at home. And also some of the other activities that we have been doing around our home and garden.
  3. The thread started about people falling off a cliff.. it now feels more like the whole cliff has just collapsed. I have heard of at least two friends who are now wondering how they are going to pay all the bills in the next few days having either just lost jobs with no redundancy payout or are self-employed so now earning nothing. And I can't even imagine how people who have lost loved ones to this virus must be at the moment.
  4. I reckon that if I am going to have to be a teacher alongside doing my day job (which I can and often do from home anyway so thankfully unaffected from that perspective... I count myself as fortunate) then I might as well get some stock photos from it.
  5. Looks like an interesting scheme. Once this coronavirus madness is done with, I might suggest it to the school... I think they have other things to worry about at the moment like whether they are even going to be open in a week or two's time.
  6. Absolutely! 🙂 We collect crisp packets because our childrens' school sends them off to be recycled and gets a small payment in return.. so this collection has been built up over time and we just haven't got around to depositing them in the collection bin in the school reception yet.
  7. My employer has decided that everyone (worldwide) is working from home without special approval from an SVP. My stock photography is increasingly going to be things shot around the house and garden.
  8. With the whole virus thing, I guess you can anticipate waiting times to be longer when you are in a QC queue.
  9. As we had probably the first day of good weather this year, I made it out into the garden for the first time this year. (this one is probably better suited to microstock but.... ) But with coronavirus, I expect I'll be taking more shots like this:
  10. I sometimes find my images in the press by using image Google search. Well this evening, I've found one used not once, not twice but four times...

  11. I agree with Sally R. Some of your images are a little on the dark side.. if in doubt, take a look at the histogram in your editing software and try and centre it.
  12. Thank you for spotting and reporting this Bryan.. it's been a while since one of my images was reported here by someone other than me!
  13. Yes.. some of my images that I have sold a few times definitely wouldn't make it into a gallery. I guess to us an analogy, Ferraris are nice (and many of us might like one) but chances are we will buy a Ford, a Vauxhall/Opel or Volkswagen as that's what we can afford and in many cases are more suitable! 🙂
