    get people to send in photos and stories free "to get their byline in the paper". 

    - they have photographers on call but will get stuff off Joe Public for nothing if they can

     - if people stopped sending it for free.

    In a nutshell. You’re not going to stop local/regional papers from getting all the photos they need for free.

    My local paper won’t pay for anything at all.

    Yes, it speeded up my filing by a very large margin.    As noted all the above!  I use the templates/stationary  a lot, I have a list of cabinet ministers and just type /Gove/ and I get “Michael Gove MP PC,  Secretary of State for the Environment”. Correct spelling and job title.  The template already has location, date and activity and all IPTC fields complete..  So I end up with London 1st April 2019 Michael Gove MP PC Secretary of State for the Environment arrive for a cabinet meeting at 10 Downing Street.  All I will have typed is /Gove/. 


    Even setting up ad-hoc events is very fast and ensures consistent format and spelling.   


    I tend to to set up templates for specific events like London Fashion Week or Trooping the Colour  and just add details to captions as required.  


    As noted the speed of reading RAW files is unbelievable.  So selection, rating and culling is as fast as you can press the keys.  It will read hundreds of raw files almost instantly, if you have a high spec laptop.


    i would not be without it.  

    It is also of huge benefit if you send to more than one agency as you can have a basic template set up with what each requires, and then adapt to the specific shoot. For anything with lots of names or identifiers that you know beforehand, the code replacement facility - as Ian stated, is a very big time saver.

  5. probably, but another thread suggested a possibility to me. If one were at say, an olde worldly heritage type event, should Live News images always be in colour? Of course B&W can be a post processing transformation strictly speaking not allowed, but it could also be something done in camera. I am anticipating that the answer is that they should always be in colour.

    It's before 1968: that was when the Singer Building was demolished.

    Great image!

    Do you know Andreas Feininger?




    edit: wow look at Google today: a Bauhaus tribute!

    Andreas Feininger studied at the Bauhaus, where his father Lyonel was head of the graphics studio.

    Fascinating. Taken by my Dad from an ocean liner. I will have to ask him if he was trying to emulate Andreas Feininger. Those were the days, when people took 5 days to cross the Atlantic instead of a few hours.
