    Anyone used E-infinity ?

    I only bought from them once, and returned the lens within the 14 day 'change your mind' period as I really wasn't happy with it. Whole process was easy. (I paid for the return postage but only to their UK depot). (Side note, does that '14 day change your mind' right to return items still...

    Am I allowed to :- Covid 19 related

    Legally, yes. In terms of the guidelines, debatable. Be sensible. If the car park is busy turn back around.

    What's your opinion on people who are continuing to do photoshoots during lockdown

    I class local as any distance from my house that Boris Johnson could conceivably cycle to within an hour.... (joke) The rules do contain conflicting information about travel for excercise, saying "but you can travel a short distance within your area to do so if necessary (for example, to access...

    What's your opinion on people who are continuing to do photoshoots during lockdown

    One of my colleagues recently went to take photos for a planning application in Cornwall (all outdoors). That's work related and cannot be done from home. Kind of nuts that this sort of thing is allowed to continue, but the govt is putting the economy first by allowing work related activities to...

    I think it's irresponsible. However if that sort of photography is their job, I can't find anything in the guidance suggesting it's 'against the rules' that the government, in its wisdom, has put in place.

    All shops going online eventually.

    I don't think it's a matter of 'attempted', just that some people think this is inevitably how things are going. If access to the internet and online payment systems becomes a crucial part of life, there are ways that this can be provided for vulnerable people. (I remember one political party...

    Dartmoor (back in the summer)

    I like that. (I don't mind the grass, myself).

    Photoshop ... knowing what you don't know

    Another vote for PiXimperfect. I've been using PS for photos and work for years and years, but I learned a ton of new stuff in just one of his videos. (I think the video was 'remove fence with 3 simple steps). I have always used PS in a very basic, crude way and was able to incorporate some new...

    Does English cooking have a "Dumpling"? aka, anything that is pastry wrapped 360 with filling and bite size. Cornish pasty need not apply.

    Whenever I see people making ravioli, dim sum etc I always think "that's a lot of work for what it is." Maybe that's why we don't have something similar? Also those two really lean on pasta to make their parcels.... pastry wouldn't work as well, floating in a stew it would disintegrate. I did...

    The UK has dumplings but they're a different thing altogether - suety, puddingey blobs, or scone type things, floating in a stew.
