  1. Yes, on behalf of the much lazier among us, thanks for the effort in posting finds.
  2. Thanks - I actually saw that one. Alamy, yes - might pay for a coffee next time I'm in Prague airport, if that ever happens.
  3. Thanks for the help - it seems like a lot of effort, you might have to just put up with smaller pics. Sorry.
  4. First proper NEWS story since March, and a fun one to do
  5. I still can't work out how to get the bigger images on here. I just right click and copy the image URL and I get the small ones. I'm not going to be losing any sleep over it, but I'd be interested to know how you link to the huger ones.
  6. Pleased this one sold - adding 'social distancing' to the keywords got the sale.
  7. Very encouraging to see the number of nature pictures selling - especially as that's all I've been taking for the last three months. Fingers crossed.
  8. This one sold again - that was 60p well-spent in Sainsbury's
  9. Many thanks. My dad will be pleased his garden made it into the papers, (even if it was a story about greenfly)
  10. Many thanks. I wasn't planning to get down to bacteria level but I've had enough of trying to stop a large collection of extension tubes wobbling. I'll do a bit or research. Thanks again.
  11. This is a topic I've been wondering about for a while. Does anyone who does this have any recommendations for a suitable microscope - not hugely expensive - that can be attached to a Nikon?
  12. I use the Nikon 105mm a lot for insects and studio work - it's a great lens.
  13. Better than Jan-Apr. Not good exactly, but an improvement. As for cleared balance, however......
  14. Do you think I should stop wearing that plastic souvenir helmet then? The one time recently that I've been approached by a protester was one who was worried about being traced with facial recognition programs.
  15. Not only is it a public space, but most protesters are there for the sole purpose of getting publicity for a cause. If there were no media there, what would be the point? I've covered many really huge marches through London that didn't make it onto the TV news print media is the only coverage they're likely to get. Most protesters I've encountered are more than happy to pose for photos - even when you don't want them to. Just try not to look like you're working for the police.
  16. A slight digression from topic, but has anyone noticed more weekend sales being reported? I've had a few PU sales pop up from time to time but there seem to be more 'normal' uses being invoiced on Sat and Sun.
  17. I've noticed over the last two months that 'sales' (ie uses invoiced) have kept up well - this is the best month for a while. No doubt this reflects the time delay from selection - use - invoice so we are seeing sales from before the Virus. But cleared payments are certainly down.
  18. I came to view this discussion expecting it to be about "Are You Shooting More or Less in the Lockdown?" rather than semantics. Might I suggest that getting worked up about the language used is a bit like those who take more interest in equipment than actually taking / making / shooting / forging / snapping / creating photos of things?
  19. Less and different. I'm stuck in Kent and haven't been to London since the start of the new era, so doing no news (apart from 1 almost news image yesterday) and lots of garden birds - I know for a fact I am not alone in that! For ages I have been meaning to do more video and I am finally doing that now - mostly mad woodpigeons. I've never done enough video to have an idea of whether it is really worthwhile so this could be useful. I am doing more really boring studio stuff. It's what I usually resort to when the weather has been bad for a LONG time, but it does sell. I've also written a couple of piano duets - not expecting to make a fortune from that though. So I am shooting, snapping, photographing, recording, making and doing anything I can really.
