Day 24 June 2015: Battle Re-Enactment

taken a few days ago at waterloo, just going through the images now [

Who is the stupidest here?
cannot believe this is even an issue, the troops have right of way. the sounds of drums, music and hob nail boots marching give no indication of direction, yes the troops cannot go round every person that gets in the way. it was a simple bad misfortune of timing, no fault by anyone.
two days ago I ended up by pure chance at the head of over 2000 men in uniform marching, we had a police escort of 3 horses 20 feet in front, the public in the main stays at the side of the road/lane but a few would jump in front to take the head on pic, we would not have stopped.
Its happens all the time.

Photographer gets run over by the army
very easy to criticize, But when you are focused on something and these sounds are going off all around you, Its impossible to see them. I've done this hundreds of times. Most time the marching troops know me and I will freeze, make myself small as possible, while they filter round me, but have had my head hit a few times by hanging accruements.
Have also done this with cavalry which is more worrying. but the Horses don't like standing on " squidgy things " so they tend to not like putting hoofs on you

x 2 or 1.4 converter
I have just purchased a Canon 1.4 converter mk3, it wont AF on the 100-400(Original) although canon website says it does, it will AF on 28-300 but I've yet to try the results as the primary role was to extend 100-400 and very little use to extend that when I have the larger lens.
the MK2 100-400 is on my shopping list.

Open season for thieves?

Quote: I don`t believe the fuel companies are all that bothered, they must have factored in x amount for loss due to theft, its not hitting there profits, if it was they would have changed things years ago.

Most sensible answer yet, while the public continue to pay for these thefts then no one will want to do anything about it, saying that if the cost of prosecution comes down to civil and the industry themselves have to pay then that could change., and we could see payment by card only.
Seen quite a few petrol stations now going over to unmanned card paying only. 3 in my area now.I suspect this will become the norm not down to thefts but in the interests of profits.

What do you look for in a bag?
I have various systems, slingshot/backpack and street and field system, even a holster bag which I can attach additional storage. I take what suits my needs, sometimes I have access to my equipment quite locally, for example the car but on other occasions I will be on my feet all day with no immediate access to other storage. Times during the day I require the long lens.
so with this in mind its very difficult to choose what is best. I tailor my kit requirements around which venue i am attending. For example next week I am off to the battle of waterloo bicentennial, most of the time I will have access to my gear within minutes so will carry camera only with shoulder bag for couple cf and rain cover.

During the battles I will use my street and field system as its a mile from my camp to the battlefield and need to make sure I have all I need and will be moving from place to place. the street and field system means I don't have to put it down and risk it being stolen while im looking the other way.
I have always used Lowepro not out of brand loyalty but price point and they seem to last.

I found the above totally rubbish, you have to lock it open or have it closed, which is a pain and makes it difficult to carry and requires you to do after every shot. I got rid of mine, not sure what options you have available to you aside from some form of loupe

TBH I think there all a crutch, its hard which ever way you do it. So use them if your intension is to give you the incentive to stop and that's helps you personally, but if its to replace one addiction with another then I would not bother. Its all comes down to how badly you want to stop

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens
just sent mine away for a quote, replacing it with the 28-300l, had mixed results from the 28-105 over the last 7 years. mainly down to me not taking my time and snatching shots rather than the lens itself, its a good lens, not the best in the l range that's for sure. No comparison with my 100-400 on quality
as a footnote I have had it 5 years and cost me about 550. been offered 310. so they hold value well

Verbal abuse
doubt it was very little to do with photography, if he was carrying a banana , it may well have got the same reaction, the truth is we have people in the community that when in groups will attack anyone for any reason they can use. by isolating them from the herd it justifies to them selves what they do. I suspect its a social problem more than a photographic issue.
you just have to be aware of your surroundings and who is about.

First ever photography shoot
I believe sherlob says it all tbh.

All I can add is you will receive hundreds of invites to do weddings when friends find you own a camera , very few will want to pay you.

The first experience for me was nerve racking on the day. and many days of editing and was never happy with what I did
The second experience again nerve racking and hated what I did.

for me there has never been a 3rd as I personally wont put myself in that position again, there is a whole different world to doing something you enjoy as against having to come up with the results.
Have you considered what will happen when none turn out as expected, if your camera fails on the day, if your card fails. and the hundred other issues that occur.

Customer/Friend Expectation's may be far higher than your skill set , I have turned down lots of friends since, some have been quite off with me for doing so but in my case the week of worry before and after the event is not something I want to do again.
fortunetly the two I did, the friends seem happy but they are far below what I thought I could do.

The one bit of advice I can give is have a word with the best man, get him on side to manage the guests ready for each photo, do the large group shots first before they get bored. then prey lol

I should add that I am not against doing it, I do a similar role for a smaller regional show, but At that one I do as I want, made very welcome and enjoy the weekend. and that for me is the difference. I am under no pressure to produce aside from personal pride. cheap weekend away with great company. that makes all the difference.

Just remember, exposure is great, but when you have the exposure and you want to earn from it, you find yourself replaced by another person wanting exposure who does it for free.
I went through the same journey with magazines, in the end they wouldn't even give me a free magazine. and I was contributing 4 x3 page articles in each edition(1 3rd of the magazine content, I persuaded myself it was for the good of the hobby.

A few days ago I received an invite to be come the official photographer of one of the largest shows in its genre.

I’ve been chatting to xxxxxxxxx about having an official photographer at this year’s show and we have all thought your shots from previous years are by far the best! With that in mind, would you be interested in taking official pics for the Show this year? Ideally we would like you on site at set up and then over the entire weekend. We would like shots of every aspect of the Show to include, Schools Day, air show, battle, groups, VIP area, Veterans and Dinner Dance.

please note this is as good as you can get in access and exposure. no money. its more like a full time job and worse of all with that list of things to do I would be on my feet 15 hours and no enjoyment for me, I would rather pay the 15 quid to get in , enjoy the day and having a few drinks with my mates after public show has finished.

I have declined for those reasons. im sure they will find people who will jump at the chance for "exposure".

Camera Insurance
Its quite a simple system, The risk of paying out is assessed, policy is written to manage that risk, and future premiums set to cover the expected claims, running costs and profit.
A claims handler has no interest or benefit for turning down a claim, in fact for them its less work if they except the claim.
The handler has one main role, to check if it falls into the agreed policy conditions, Most declined claims are due to people not reading the terms and conditions when they take a policy up and having high expectation's or distorting the truth to suit those conditions. The telephone lines are recorded and the handler will be monitored to ensure they follow those guidelines.
they will have very little movement in those conditions. making exceptions is not something done lightly, as the handler will have to justify that decision and take responsibility for that .
having a lot of recent experience I can assure you no one reads the t&c until they need it, then blame the insurance for them being unable to claim.
as an example something like " Must be reported in 24 hours", they will call a week later and say "Did not realise that I had the insurance. that is not a reasonable excuse

Photographers - are we too easily pleased?

Quote: mIt took a long time for it to sink in to my dense skull, but the people running things have a much better handle on the site than many of us realise; the old cliché we don't see the big picture, comes to mind. KeithH got the point across to me, and when I realised it, I couldn't believe it took so long for me to see it. In a nutshell, the site is for everybody, and that includes just about every level of photographer there is, but the majority do it as a pastime, a hobby; that's the group I'm in. What you want to do is limit the site to your concept of what a photographer should be, impose your will on everybody, and have us all think and act like you. This type of thing goes on in all walks of life, and we all do it, some of us without realising that we do it. I did that for the first 10 years I was a member, and in a very subtle way, which is Keith's way most of the time,Grin, he let me know that there are thousands of members who enjoy the site the way it is, and it would be very destructive to take their enjoyment away; many would leave the site if it was the way you want it to be. I might seem like it at times, but I'm not a mean spirited person, and I want to see everybody enjoy the site. We're a very diverse group, and I think that makes the site what it is. I have no reason to suck up to management; I have awards disabled, and I don't enter competitions; so I can say with a clear conscience that management do a great job, considering the diversity of the big picture, and we all can use a bit of moderation now and then.Wink

One of the best responses I've read for a long time.

Photographers - are we too easily pleased?
if there was a demand then it would happen, I've seen loads of groups come and go on here that fell away out of lack of interest which discussed this same issue. I tend to see things in black and white (Not picture wise), unless people want this and make it happen, it wont happen.

Photography for me is being comfortable with what I do, I don't find a need to share with photographers, the people that matter to me are those that I support through photography. there likes or feedback are much more important than some criticism on the rules and on technique. to them the subject/story is more important than composition will ever be.
I suspect there are many on here both professional and amateur who feel the same way.

Quote: How about we copy copy n paste some of the RC images in here then cos most of them are crap and we could all enlighten ourselves in the joyous fabric of self discovery through critical / ephemeral analysis.

Just a wooly thought .... Smile

Personally I find this idea distasteful, it matters not what award someone has, just how it made them feel, to make fun of someone's pictures in a mickey take is not constructive. if you have nothing good to say its best kept that way and let them enjoy there hobby

Do camera clubs cramp a photographer's style?
Camera clubs are a social centre to share a hobby. nothing more or less, like any group of enthusiast's in any hobby , there are so many diverse people and spats, bullying, egos ect, the list goes on as exists in life at every level. The attitude can change from club to club so labelling them is a fruitless exercise.
just go along, if you enjoy the interaction then that's great, if you are one who wants to moan about it then don't go. The fact is its your choice and you get what you put in.

Take part in what you want to be that comps or lectures, the fact is no club will be able to please everyone.

in regard to do they stifle you, same answer. that's entirely up to you, Simples.

I left my last one as my area of focus was not what the club wanted to see all the time and a judge marked me down because he was fed up of seeing the same subject, so for me it became a pointless me entering comps. It didn't stop me, just made me realise my target audience was not a camera club. But I wouldn't call the clubs as I learned so much from them over 20 years, it was me that outgrew them.
I like everyone else have gone through those scratching head moments in regards judging, but much respect for anyone who does judging, they are putting there opinion's up for judgement of the braying mob, I miss the social interaction of the clubs that the internet does not give and can be so invaluable to your learning process.

'Sour Grapes' or what -----

Quote: The rule is if the other work comprises a significant part of the new work it breaks the law. Is it in the distance and part of the background or is it filling the frame?

all the above , It comes down to what context you entered the comp, For example if it was open or themed, That the photograph was captured to create a picture of young and old, different values ect then this is perfect for that, if the comp Theme was women in red then you would be pushing acceptable as the main part of this picture was someone else's work.
So in what context this was offered up for judgement is important, In my ex club someone for example submitted stain glass windows as a picture, personally I see that as not a picture in itself but a record shot of someone's creativity, if the shot included the frame and wall, then it could be deemed as creative in how you presented it.
I like the red poster one for that reason as I see the creative in using the older lady in comparison, take that lady out then we are talking just a copy

Road Traffic Accident.

Quote: Thanks all.....I think myself I'll go with the 6 points and resitting her test option as it's the only one that makes sense. Strange but if I find out more from my insurers I'll update as I go.

not sure why you feel that she needs to resit , points are awarded for breaking the traffic laws, having an accident is not a traffic offence.

profit making by the commercial world around us, the spirit of Christmas to many is alive and well, a time for giving and receiving and that goes on all around us, the retailers take advantage of that to sell more at this time of the year which has the effect of making the cynics amongst us feel its been exploited.

Download video
Each time you start and stop recording, your camera records the clip as a file, in the format that the camera uses, refer to your Manuel for the format and download a converter for that format,
you should be able to convert the clips t a more generic format dependent on what you wish to use the clip on, eg. Tv, utube ect. As pointed out above, you will need some software to put the clips together , again free on the net.

Dslr sometimes have limits on clip size so quite often start anf stop when they get the max file size.

UK Police Claim Filming Them Is an Offence

So I see that this video no longer exists - does that mean that it was deemed illegal and removed?

The video was posted 7 years ago when this thread was started, laws have changed since then but yes you can film the police.

There is no law stopping anyone filming in a public place, so if you are on the streets you can film without asking permission – the Metropolitan Police’s own guidelines(adopted by all police forces in Britain) make clear that “police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel”. There is a law – Section 58A of the Terrorism Act 2000 – that says police officers’ can stop you filming them if they believe that the video will be used for purposes of terrorism. However, police guidelines state that:

“it would ordinarily be unlawful to use section 58A to arrest people photographing police officers’ in the course of normal policing activities… An arrest would only be lawful if an arresting officer had a reasonable suspicion that the photographs were being taken in order to provide practical assistance to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism”.

Looking at doing photography business part time tax problems?
To start with start a book/ledger, recording every outgoing related to the photography, and Incomings from the agency/Photography(Keep bills and receipts plus payment notes), at the end of the year you should get a self employed form to fill in,(As stated above, inform HMRS that you are self employed), which you transfer those year end figures too, this will make it clear how much you owe or are owed. will receive a p60 from work at the same time which you also transfer the figures

Its not as hard as you think and at the level you will be doing certainly not wise to employ an accountant unless again like above becomes your main source of income. at its simplest you fill in 5 boxes with these figures, sign and send off or do online and that's it.

Just keep an itemised ledger

How often do you (or should you) clean your Camera and Lenses???
As pointed out above there is no interval for cleaning your sensor, some go years with no clean, other like me do it every event I attend due to changing lenses in dusty environment's.
Unless you have visible dust on sensor avoid doing any sensor cleans as in some cases you end up making it worse.

Since I started using the butterfly, My swab cleans have been reduced dramatically which I hardy class as a clean anyway tbh as its a light brush over the senser.

Quote: It is an offence to take, injure or kill a kingfisher or to take, damage or destroy its nest, eggs or young. It is also an offence to intentionally or recklessly disturb the birds close to their nest during the breeding season. Violation of the law can attract fines up to £5,000 per offence and/or a prison sentence of up to six months.

What one thing....
cliché, I know but the one overriding rule/observation that will take you through the periods when you don't seem to achieve anything is do it for the right reason. Don't take pictures for the sake of taking them. identify why you enjoy something and focus, for one person that may be entering comps, another it may be about getting your pictures in Print. There are a hundred other reasons.
Identify what you want to do and focus on that.
The second and most important is enjoy doing it.

seagate v wd
been asked a thousand times, the basic conclusion is that if like me you have used WD drives for years and never had one failed then they are the best. The fact I've not had any other does not come into the recommendation. it will be the same from those who have had the Seagate drives.
What did come out of these question was there was no guarantee on any of the main brands being any better than each other as there was as many failures on each brand. stick with the main brands and you have a good likelihood they may never fail.
But hard drives are a risk full stop, if your concerned about failure you should be thinking of buying 2 so that you can back the first up, im afraid that's the best advice ive seen.

Far better than me saying I always use WD and never failed on me in 5 years, although true..meaningless

Non-PC-powered portable storage
for example play com do 64gb SD CARDS AT 21.99, that works out the same as one device that you need power for and could fail all in 1 go and lose the lot, that's not even looking at the cheaper cards out there, and it may be worth looking at prices in the airport or when you get to the usa as they may be cheaper locally

Non-PC-powered portable storage
when I referred to Compact flash, I was indicating my system,

In your case storing on SD cards, storing in an x-ray bag for airport travel is as safe as using a portable drive, In fact safer as your pics are not on one single drive and should you lose a card then not the lot, the benefits of doing it this way they do not need power facility's should you be in a location without power to charge your device, they are cheaper storage per mb than portable drives.
cards nowadays are bigger and hold as much as these drives also.

Ive had some earlier versions of these drives and soon ended up in the bottom of my drawer.
One of those great idea on paper but not much use in the field.

For example, quick look online shows cheapest Non branded at 130 quid for 500gb , plus you need to buy spare battery's ect. ask your self how many Large SD cards can you buy for that and the total GB of those cards. and this is for a very cheap one, the Epson ones used to be in the 250 quid range as does the archos if I reccolect

Quote: Animation or video

I know absolutely nothing about video and that proves it! I make an animation and make it into a video. What would you call this? Is it animation or video. It's animated but I've made it's an MP4 which is video.

My understanding is mp4 is just a format much like raw and jpeg are to stills. the content is what is referred to as video or Animation , I think the term video has been lost in recent times, I make slideshows and everyone I know calls them Videos, yet I always call them Audio visuals.
In your case I would term it Animation

Simplifying things?
gone through all of the above, and being in the field for a few days at a time, no chance of nipping home to get something, non professional I just carry 3 lenses and a body, the 50mm I never use but always take in case I do any thing at night.

The biggest compromise I do make believe it or not is bags, dependent on the location.

I have a full street and field system for those events when I am away from my base and on my feet all day walking about(a backpack would kill me over that time) and carry all ill need for the day.(battery/flash cards/rain capes/high vis vest/lenses/camera water proof bags/ear defenders/cleaning cloths ect/malty tool cos you never know).

If its a weekend where I have a base to work from I take a large backpack and just carry the minimal, often just camera with lens fitted. and store all the above in the bag at base

If im close to a base but need long lens and want to put bag on the ground when shooting from secure location then the bag which gives me quick access and hold flash and long lens, for example during a battle when I need to be mobile but not far away from my bag.

So for me the location is important

A.A. MEMBERSHIP ? Anyone any opinions ?

Quote: If you wnt to stay with the AA - Go on to the AA website, get a quote for your cover.
Phone them up, go through to the department for people who are leaving and ask why they are charging you so much for being loyal. They will the reduce it to around the same as the website.
Done this for the last 3 years and I have gold membership (not that I wanted it) for the same price as standard.

Exactly the same here, half quoted price. just do your homework to give comparison, service is excellent btw, matched greenflag

I know many amateurs that are superb, never wanted to be professional and doing it for 30+ years, Agree with Keith here, the difference is if you have the desire and skill has no relationship to it, In fact I know some professional wedding photographers that make me cringe when I see what they are charging for
