  1. I am getting very concerned that measures not functioning is a sign of some greater problem with the Alamy database. Not hearing an explanation from Alamy only feeds my worry... I have had 8 sales reported this month, this seems "normal" for me.
  2. Second Camera

    For me the Fujifilm X100 was a game changer back in the day. It really reinvigorated my love of photography with it's analog controls and it's fixed focal length lens (35mm Full Frame equivalent) the ideal focal length IMHO. As a plus NOBODY thinks your a professional photographer when you use this camera. The image quality is more than enough to Alamy QC. I would suggest you try out the new Fujifilm X100F if you can. Hope this helps, David
  3. FTP not working?

    Never mind, the FTP is back online
  4. I was half way through an upload when the FTP sever stopped working and now I cannot reconnect to server. Anyone else having issues with the FTP upload?

    Blessings for a Merry Christmas!
  6. James, Thank you for reconsidering your position and then making an offer I can enthusiastically accept. That said there are other issues that also need your attention such as refunds, RM licenses that are actually in effect RF in terms of use and duration. Abuse of personal and presentation licenses by unscrupulous clients... Thank you for reestablishing my trust in Alamy and I look forward to a continued profitable relationship. Best regards and a Merry Christmas, David L. Moore
  7. Imposters syndrome (again)

    Photographers are a curious lot... We have egos big enough to ask to be paid for our view of the world. Yet at the same time egos so fragile they can be toppled by a slight breeze. We measure approval by the the money we make, likes on social media or just a kind comment. But if we just chase those external justifications how do we developed our inner vision? This what I struggle with. I for one can swing from feeling competent to a hack who pushes a shutter button... Alamy devaluing our work does not help.... my ego

  9. Fujinon XF 200mm F2

    Julie, Nice write up on the Fujinon X200mm f2. I just got back from the 3 day Fujifilm Festival in Venice CA. Great workshops and loner program were I was able to try the X-T3, X-H1 and my personal favorite the Fujinon X200mm f2. On the last day they had a photo walk along the beach with talent so I was able to try the lens out. All of the images are straight out of camera with no post processing. The models above were posed by Michelle Turner as she shared posing tips and strategies. For all Fujifilm shooters I would highly recommend going to the next Fujifilm Festival if you can. I was able to speak with the top guy who runs the photo division and offer him my opinion on the current equipment as well as what to release in the future. Having that type of access is amazing. Plus tons of technical experts, clean and check, free prints, loaners and great workshops. As for the Fujinon X200mm f2 It a superb piece of glass! IMHO If you can justify the purchase I think it would be money well spent.

    It also has RED, GREEN and BLUE colored output. It is pricey but I'm a flashlight nerd

    I have use a VERY bright (4200 lumen) LED flashlight indoors for supplemental fill by bouncing it off ceilings and walls. I have also used it for light painting and as a normal flashlight... You do need someone to hold it as it does not have a stand mount. Here is what I have used Fenix LD75C As an aside, I just wasted 30 minutes trying to post example images without any luck. First from Alamy and then images hosted on my web site... What's the trick?

    For stills you get much more "power" from a strobe/flash. If you are doing video then you need a constant light source such as a LED lamp. I see the cost of an Rotolight LED is around $400.00, this amount is enough to get a couple small strobe lights, stands and simple modifiers. Modern digital cameras have good high ISO performance so you don't need a lot of power. Here are some resources for you. dpreview - Studio and Lighting Technique Lighting Rumours FLASHHAVOC.com Godox strobes are popular and are a good value (not sure in UK). I use their AD200 daily (work days) for over a year and they have be fantastic. Bear Bulb is a must for me and it was a deciding factor when I chose the Godox AD200 but they are on the pricey side. Hope this helps, David

    Well done. Looks like a great day to ride bicycles!
  15. Brick and Mortar

    I find the shop's name funny, as I think of stock photography as a non-tangible in this digital era. Sorry for my lame attempt at humor...
