  • Exactly. I also tend to take my time, even in street photography, but that doesn't mean I'd want to remove the option to speed up if a cycle race suddenly went thundering past.

  • I still can't get my head round the fact that he was the only bid. Either it was crazy expensive or a ridiculously obscure website, surely?

  • Hello all, It's that wonderful time when a birthday is on the horizon, and I'm looking at getting a high quality and long lasting camera/messenger bag. Two brands kept out at me and remain in ...
  • Apologies if I'm somewhat hijacking this thread, but I'm in a similar position to OP right now, and it's really coming down to laptop fitting. I've got a 15" rMBP which I will be carrying around ...
  • Apologies for the decidedly amateur question, but if, say, I wanted to sell a photo, do I pay 500px for them to market and sell it?

  • I'm worrying the same thing here. I most definitely fit into the passing-interest amateur category.

  • As a possibly very naive aside, has everyone here received an email asking them fi they want to sign up, complete with a few photos 'Requested' (to quote the name of the tab)? I'm not sure if I've...

  • OK, last question for the Mac users who organise in Lightroom. Do you use the backup feature at import or Time Machine? Or both? Or neither?
  • Well, if nothing else I've learned that some people take backing up photos hell'a seriously. I'm certainly sold on the 'don't backup to a partition' idea though. As a preliminary plan, what say you ...

  • Quick edit: Sorry, I'm on an ageing MacBook currently. The backups are through Time Machine!
  • Created discussions How do you store your photos?
    Here's the deal: Currently, I keep all my pictures in Lightroom 5. They're stored on one partition of my external hard drive, smart-previewed to my laptop (due to ailing disk space) and backed up ...
  • I think, from your words, that it's less your photos and more your mindset. A couple are a little anaemic and could do with some processing, I'll be honest here, but they clearly show that you've ...
  • Hello all, I recently (a couple of hours ago) sold a Nikon 85 1.8 on eBay. It was only bought (by me, new) in June of this year, and so should have about 6 months warranty remaining. I still have ...
  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    Richard Butler makes a very good point about the feeling of the camera. I had a quick go with one, expecting OM-1 levels of sturdiness, and came away feeling that my D7000 would do better in a...
