  1. if you are using Lightroom then this plugin will do the job for you: https://www.photographers-toolbox.com/products/jbeardsworth/findreplace/index.php?sec=transfer
  2. I should add that in all cases - the photographer is able to mis-lead using any type of lens by choosing his view point and selection of view..
  3. It is NOT the actual lens that leads to the compression - that is the misconception! It is actually the view point. (yes the lens enables a more distant viewpoint but it is not the physics of the lens that does the compression). I.e. Shoot with a 50mm and a 300mm from the same viewpoint and crop the 50mm image to match and the perspective will be exactly the same . There are plenty of articles that explain this. Photography 103 (there are a few things to learn first so its not a 101 😉)
  4. Worth a read... (and share ) https://thebppa.com/a-statement-from-the-bppa-on-the-role-of-press-photographers-during-crisis/
  5. Hi Paul Saw that comp elsewhere, nice work. Good to see you last week. See you at Cannes where I can feature in the background of more of your images
  6. Here Here.... Whilst there are very very many good stock photographers here, there are also quite a few with a very limited view of what editorial, press or photojournalism can and should be .
  7. For the record.... (and this is quoting someone who was working as a press photographer at the time...) The press scooters were quite some way behind the car when it crashed (reports say over 5-10 minutes ). Not defending the chasing, but Di's security team were used to dealing with it day in , day out (and here again, there were tip-offs on where she would be)... What her security team did not ever do is drink and drive ... You seem to forget her drunk driver who was driving in excess of 120mph, the lack of seatbelts. The scooters where travelling at 50mph max. They knew where she was going (his flat). I have skipped some other known info. I am not supporting the photographers actions in general but try to get some basic facts right.
  8. "Most" celebrity person goes shopping in "xyzzy" are tip-offs or pre-arranged, either by said celebrities pr or by the shop... Do you really think photographers have enough time to risk hanging about in shopping centres on the off chance?
  9. Actually - A lot less than you think they do or are portrayed they do (unless there is a proper "relevant" news story). As is mentioned above - there are many cases where study of the image plus image metadata can show/prove that the subject I as complicit in the image as the photographer. I am personally of the opinion that there is a recent case like this. This is not me defending all press photographers (in fact - I should clarify "so-called") . Some ARE unscrupulous but they are in the minority, no matter how it is portrayed elsewhere. A huge %age of the professionals in the UK are members of one of a number of professional and adhere to ethics and code. More often than not, the picture does not lie and it is possible to see/work-out/understand if an image breached ethical , moral or privacy guidelines when studied.... Words less so... (including these words if you so choose)...
  10. 3rd post in the series of the Mobile Workflow. This post details editing metadata in ShutterSnitch, starting with a Photomechanic template if needed, using variables, quick select strings & Shortcodes.... https://julieedwards-x.blog/2020/01/19/shuttersnitch-metadata-editor-a-quick-look/
  11. Must admit - I find this a little insulting. Why not ask me what I am doing or using as opposed to someone else. It is quite obviously written by me and posted on this forum by me... ( Sorry - not trying to cause trouble but there is a reason that things like this hit a raw nerve).
  12. I actually mention importing from external USB devices on an iPad, so no, not "iPhone Snaps"
  13. iPAD pro - with 4G cellular. Almost as capable as a MacBook when it comes to photography for editing. Captioning - not quite as good as a MacBook (lightroom does not fully caption - i use shutter snitch). Uploading - FTP uploading of fully captioned images to Alamy, multiple files via FTP in Shuttersnitch. I do this all the time - across Europe and in the USA. As mentioned above - I have written about it multiple times, there are links and threads in the forum (and above).
  14. Simon As I show in my writings, Lightroom mobile does not have full metadata and I use ShutterSnitch to set this and send the images.
  15. The Next instalment: Selecting, Editing and Exporting https://julieedwards-x.blog/2020/01/09/lightroom-mobile-5-1-workflow-exporting/
  16. At last! Its been a long while coming but finally we can import images directly from a camera/card into Lightroom Mobile on an iPad! I'm often asked about iPad Workflows. This is my first post on the latest Lightroom Mobile updates which have made a huge difference to the workflow. More next week... https://julieedwards-x.blog/2020/01/04/direct-import-from-cards-in-lightroom-mobile/ NOW A 3 POST SERIES!
  17. Just a reminder guys... If you are at a loose end tonight, why not spend no money (free event) but spend it in good company, looking at great photos and hearing fantastic stories... You could even have a beer or three (that bits not free though)... Register now...
  18. All I would like to hilight this talk that is open to BPPA members and non-members. First up is Alan. Alan Crowhurst is an award-winning horseracing photographer contracted to Getty Images. His life has always involved racing, his grand father was a racecourse bookmaker. In this interview Alan talks about growing up in Brighton, taking up photography, his passion for his profession, what it takes to get an award-winning ‘Crowhurst’ shot and his hopes for the future. Following Alan, John Downing's son Bryn Downing will present "Behind the Lens" , a 30 minute film on his father John Downing. After the film a slideshow of John's images alongwith the stories to go with them told by Hazel Thompson . Hazel has known John for 20 years, working with him on his "Legacy" book. If you are unaware of John's work - do a quick google and you will realise his impact on photojournalism as well as being a foundering member of the bppa ... This will be a great evening ... and is FREE!!! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/assignments-live-alan-crowhurst-followed-by-john-downings-legacy-registration-78086253085
  19. I have a separate export preset for Alamy which uses a plugin called snapshot on export. http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/snapshot-on-export It automatically adds my AlamyExported keyword as well as setting a colour label whilst creating a snapshot... meaning i know what was sent and what state it was in when it was sent...
  20. I guess it depends on what sort of photographer you regard yourself as... Everything changes, do you want to document and record the changes or keep your head and images in the past? This is not meant as derogatory comment to anyone, although I did find some of the comments about the subject (as someone with “extreme colour” hair, piercings and tattoos) slightly derogatory/judgemental..
  21. That’s falling very much into regarding inked/pierced people as stereotypes and probably best a line of thought best avoided.
  22. All Just a heads up, I am doing a little talk at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke this weekend (18th August). If you are free why not pop down and say hello. There cream tea, a good selection on photos (not all mine) and (hopefully) an interesting talk. (plus the BPPA's assignments exhibition) Info and booking: http://www.stokemuseums.org.uk/pmag/whats-on/events/?event=EVENT598806 J
  23. As most will know - I have always advocated that shooting news is different to shooting stock. Many of the arguments I have read have centred on “weather” as soft news.. and whether it is news...... many subjects “can” be soft news... the thing is not always the subject... it can be how the subject is shot.... that is not to point the finger at anyone or any of the arguments... I am just saying news photographers tend to approach subjects, hard or soft, in a particular way.....
