    Canon 5D series discontinued

    My 5DIII is my work horse in every sense, but it is getting dated and I'm thinking of replacements. Not even looked at the Canon mirrorless series, but have a cupboard full of Canon lenses so would hate to have to start all over again from square one replacing them all. I'll watch with interest...

    Using workshop created images in camera club competitions

    Coming in a bit late on this one, but an interesting and thought provoking thread. As a keen camera club member myself, and someone who both enters all their competitions and also (from time to time) attends workshops/courses aimed at broadening my skills, I agree with previous comments about...

    Changing image file titles

    @Rapscallion ... thank you for these. Definitely learned something myself too.

    Changing image file titles

    Ref this and your previous post, which explained the issue perfectly, thank you. .... the documents are all hand written ledgers, work records, staff records, letters and the like: some quiet faded and difficult to read.

    Changing image file titles

    Yes ... she is doing it so she can find them more easily - so she can go straight to an image called date_book1_page1 or whatever. She will take several images of one piece of work, then move on to the next. I have no idea if she has set up a folder system - which would be an obvious place to...

    Changing image file titles

    Another option I’d never heard of. Thanks again, will pass this on too.

    Changing image file titles

    Thanks all, that’s really useful info. I’ll pass it on to my friend. Might save her some time and effort and leave her free to use the time more productively. :):)

    Changing image file titles

    A friend does some voluntary archive and record research type work for a large national charity. The work involves (amongst other things) looking through old documents, many of which she photographs to review at leisure at a later date as she cannot remove them from the various libraries and...

    How do I cull my photos?

    I have a similar issue - as in taking too many pictures, although I have tried very hard to train myself out of the habit over the years. I totally get the temptation to shoot everything in sight, but you just end up with a lot of average images. The advice about shooting film is good. It really...

    Assigning copyright - what would you do?

    I think you may have misinterpreted what I was trying to say. To clarify, yes, I do voluntary work from the charity, which is to their benefit and I certainly don't begrudge them raising funds in any legitimate way to support their work. The issue about them selling the images on to third...

    Assigning copyright - what would you do?

    Yes, I totally agree with Phil and yourself on this. I really just started the thread to gauge the opinions of other photographers on the matter. In fact the images are of little or no use to me and I will most likely assign the copyright as asked, simply because I enjoy the role and the social...

    Assigning copyright - what would you do?

    That’s an interesting aspect of this discussion. Is voluntary “work” for a charity classed as “formal employment” in this context? Certainly, none of the rules which protect employees would apply, in that I can just walk away at any time without notice and equally they can dismiss me without...

    Assigning copyright - what would you do?

    Yes, this is a just about my stance on it. I have no interest in any commercial gain from the images, but like you, I do enter camera club competitions and some of them may have some merit for that purpose. I would like to think I could use one in a competition if I chose without it being an...

    Assigning copyright - what would you do?

    I do voluntary work for a charity which operates in several locations. The work involves being something of a "jack of all trades", helping out generally and just being an extra pair of hands at the location where I volunteer. The charity know that I'm interested in photography and own a...

    Pure pleasure

    I really like it. It’s given me inspiration to re-look at a few water reflection shots of my own, but also I love the idea of free-wheeling, doing your own thing and just having a bit of fun with your images. I too am a dog walking photographer so many of my shots are one handed grab shots; it’s...
