  1. Like yourself I took to wildlife photography just to shoot something during the boring lockdowns, learn by your mistakes and carry some bird seed or a pack of hazlenuts for squirrels etc. I use the Tamron 150-600 and will i normally shoot on shutter priority and most shots will come out at f6.3 which create a nice bokeh on the background. I've not been tempted to go for the Birds in flight yet, but that will mean ISO being ramped up, which either Lightoom or Topaz AI can sort out. Keep trying!!
  2. Colin, The Tameron 150-600 comes in at 4.3lbs This lens is always on my camera in fact i would hazzard a guess that 90% of my port in the last year is with this lense on a Canon 7D2. I thought of the weight issues but after using it now for 18 months, you'll soon forget it.
  3. Still cant access Dashboad, but i presume this might related to the data server power outage in London today https://www.datacenterdynamics.com/en/news/equinix-ld8-data-center-experiences-major-outage/
  4. " The first casualties of press photography are your lens caps. " What's a lens cap??
  5. I have on occasion posted accidents and fires, The only reason is that it gives my local papers and TV sites the option to pick and choose the images they wish to use as well as saves me the hassles of haggling a price and invoicing them. I'll only post if I know they're liable to use as it's a big enough local story.
  6. I try and have minimal dealings with PC plod. Fortunate to have only had one tell me to stop photographing, CG chopper coming into land, despite explinations of who i was, why I was there and knowing RNLI & CG use my images he wanted me to stop, Yet to my left and right was joe public videoing on their mobiles etc but they were ok, it was me he had a beef with, I just put it down till he walked out of view. Complaint to the local PCC by the end of the day with assurances she will ensure her officers are better trained when dealing with photographers, yeah right waiting for round 2!
  7. Something I need to do with mine as lots of false hits lately. As for the original Question, I have no problems walking around with the kit, currently a 7D2 with a 150-600 on the front, you do get stared at quite a bit but when they realise the lens is not pointing at them they carry on with what they were doing. Only once I've had hassles and that was to do with a coastguard incident, thankfully the coastguard knew who i was and calmed him down. saying i was documenting their work.
  8. It's located on your main Dashboard, scroll down and you should see a link to it.
  9. Rates for online use has always been low, had the same with a BBC useage earlier this month. But when you get a fullpage print, it makes all the difference $245!
  10. Some lovely images Gayle, you may want to be descriptive within your captions. For example: Its caption is "Fixer upper" Maybe changing to "Frontal view of a rusty Ford pickup truck" as I believe Alamy also take into account the caption when searches are perfromed.
  11. Their commercial enough, certainly worth attempting. Contact Alamy to see if they were issued with a license, if not you can either ask Alamy to pursue the license fee or open an account with Pixsy and let them do the work.
  12. If they removed the image from instagram and placed it on their server and no license issued by Alamy then a clear infringement, worth pursuing if it's a commercial website.
