  1. Great topic, thank you. I am very drawn toward shooting at night but not good at it. So this helps.
  2. I only read paper books. I keep a paper day planner and calendar only. I write pen on paper in a daily journal notebook. I write poetry with a pen. For long articles, brainstorming, and project timelines, I need to sit in a cafe with paper and pen and write/plan that way because the computer screen freezes me. I still work regularly with 16mm film reels and projectors, but transfer it to digital video for editing and presentation. I WAY prefer digital audio recording and editing vs. analogue recording. OMG I am rarely separated from my iPhone and all the convenience it offers.
  3. Good to know. I don't understand all the subtleties of tagging but I do research every image I post and try to tag thoroughly. I also notice my images are remarkably visible in searches, not sure why that is. They often show up on the first page of a search, even when the topic has many thousands of images.
  4. I grew up in Minnesota and my parents took me on a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area when I was 13 years old. We spent a whole week canoeing around one island. We pulled up to shore and camped at night, but paddled all day. I perfected my loon call. Unforgettable!
  5. Thank you. I'm intuiting all that. I work on this every day, so it helps to get encouragement. It's interesting that this one photo was bought twice and zoomed once, which makes me think it's more about what photos you offer rather than the odds (i.e. quantity).
  6. This one sold a second time. First time to Germany, this time to Brazil. And it's only my third sale ever. Brazil pays half as much as Germany, do we know why? And will the image really be a full page size? Is that what that means? Country: Brazil Usage: Editorial Media: Book, print and/or e-book Print run: up to 5,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1 page Start: 01 October 2019 End: 01 October 2024 Brazil, Book, print and/or e-book,Bulk discount flat rate Edit: Looks like it was through a distributor too and I only get 30%, so very small sale. I didn't realize I signed up for that when I joined. Oh well.
  7. One thing I am enjoying from this process is researching photos in order to tag them. Here, I learned the difference between chemtrails and contrails. Chemtrails is a conspiracy theory that the government showers the earth with chemicals, among other things, when these lines in the sky appear, which is impossible and disproven by science and fact. Contrails is short for "condensation trails" which is what these are: Ice crystals created by water and sediment released as exhaust. They can however modify weather and cloud patterns and are scientifically named "homomutatus", meaning human-made clouds.
  8. There are freak events in all walks of life and it’s easy to list them. On the other hand, I have travelled solo up, down and around the USA by car, sleeping alone in tents in primitive campsites. All over California. On an extended road trip from Las Vegas to Denver. Several different trips through Utah. No wayard events ever. Just bliss. People constantly ask me if it’s safe. It’s far safer than walking down the street in Oakland where I live, I tell them. And I do that too, late at night.
  9. How do you opt out of Novel Use? I'm not seeing that option anywhere.
  10. No! There's no way to opt out of these rock bottom pricing schemes? I'm not ok with this.
