  1. OK maybe not the "BEST", but at least a high level of proficiency...? 😆 Same here, photography and my career as a photographer has been a blessing for me.
  2. All the BEST photographers have dyslexia! 😊 All I can say is thank God for word processing software with spell check and synonyms! I can not spell my way out of a wet paper bag so I do all my caption and keyword writing on a word processor and then cut and paste them into the image's metadata. Others here have given you wise counsel, never strive for fifty tags or ten super-tags just what's appropriate. Remember the five W's - Who?, What?, Where?, When?, and Why? Hope this helps, David L. Moore
  3. Living on a island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean I sometimes feel like a red headed step-child in regards to UK centered Alamy. That being said I have been continually amazed at what subject matter sells and have had the good fortune of consistent sales throughout out the years. (But sometimes at ridiculous low prices) The days of spending money to produce stock shoots is long gone as there no return for the outlay. Stock for me is documenting my life, interest, travels and exploiting any access I have to subjects and locations. Hobbies, friends, family and events are all fodd
  4. When you make a new template in Photoshop make sure to use a new blank image this way none of the existing metadata of an image gets carried over to the new template. I learned this the hard way when the capture dates/times were being corrupted by the template I made.
  5. This has happen to me. To fix it, edit your post, right-click on image and set the vertical and horizontal pixels to taste. Hope this helps.

Street performance...?
  8. Stills don't do this young hula dancer justice as she was moving very fast with grace. So nice to hear live Hawaiian music with amazing hula. Music with dance when done well is SO much more then either alone. Mental health is a THING! Best to find joy where you can.
  9. Here are my three for consideration.

  10. Below is a video form the Tattooed Bald Monkey about the catastrophic financial situation Nikon is in. NIKON GO BOOM: Uncle Kenny told you so I hope the new mirrorless camera can save Nikon! I'm a big fan of Nikon since the F2 to today with the D850 and the AMAZING 19mm PC lens that I use for my commercial work.
  11. RDP was the start of my FUJIFILM love also. I was working at a commercial studio when they switched form Kodak 120, 4x5 film with it's inconstant ASA ratings and wide swings in color form different batches to FUJIFILM with its dependable consistent color and ASA. The X100 was a paradigm shift for me as well.

  14. I have built my last three computers for Windows XP, 7 and now 10 (64 bit). I find the hardest part of assembling a new computer is sorting through the thousands of hardware choices. What chipset? what CPU at what speed? what motherboard? what hard-drives/SSD? what power supply? what case to fit it all into? Funny thing with technology I've had to relearn the hardware standards (State of the Art) for each new build. Once all the components are chosen the actual assembly/build of the computer is pretty straight forward and simple. But be warned once you start down this path you may
  15. Maybe a good ideal to backup/archive on various media such as BluRay. For long term archive I use Verbatim M-Disk BD-R 100GB disk. Also if your backup is at the same location as the original data then it's not backed up.... David L. Moore
  16. Not uncommon for OIS lenses to make noise even when off. My copy of the FUJIFILM XF 50-140mm f/2.8 is packed away and out of reach so I can't confirm I get the same sound but as long as the images are good I would not worry about it. Hope this helps, David L. Moore
  17. Paulette, Thank you for the video link. I really enjoy workshops and critiques and I had plans on attending a workshop at the Santa Fe Workshops this year.... I did a workshop at SFW a couple years ago and one back in the mid 90's. It is hard to find photography workshops tailored for the working professional photographer but they have them, plus Santa Fe is an amazing location. As Stephen Covey says, You have to sharpen your saw...
  18. Ok, interesting. Wondering if it was just the way I used the camera?
  19. No, not a big difference. Wish I had kept my X-T2's.
