I'll help you Lady Jo, it's not a s daunting as it seems. Zenfolio is a good suggestion, although I haven't taken advantage of my membership and set things up the way they should be. Let's talk about it when we get together for the races in April.

BTW, the thought of you "giving up" is not one any of us could see you doing in a million years. So, we'll just build you a business.

Pretty incredible day.. finally got to take my Dad up in the Mustang.





Can't even begin to describe the feeling of being able to share it with him.

I had Zenfolio, I am currently with Smugmug, both are good. One is cheaper, one seems a little more customization friendly, but overall they both get it done just fine.

I know the feeling, Jo. I also use Zenfolio, but I'm still at a loss for the rest of the business stuff. But, just like I'm doing in school,( not giving up on it,) I'm also not giving up on maybe getting to where some return on my investment in photography happens. I sold a print to my chemistry professor , but not that it's going to help my grade any. Can't help you with the other stuff, but I can at least sympathize with you.

OK Texas folks, I think the time has come for me to either actually sell my photos online for honest to goodness actual money, or quit this photography lark altogether. (Kinda sorta). I get the occasional request from someone wanting a picture from my website and every time, I don't know how to handle it.

This is coming from someone who is fundamentally pathetic at handling money, so I guess I will let an online house do it for me. But that leads me to questions like 'which one'? Smugmug is lovely I am sure, but I do not see myself making back the $150/year they want. Has anyone used Bluemelon? They are cheaper.

I am asking Texas folks because I would like to know from scratch, 101, idiots guide to taking money for online sales of photos, please. I did find this which helps, but I still am entirely clueless about whether I need to register a business or get a sales tax license or file which kind of forms or WHAT. I mean, I need it spelled out for me in big letters, everything I need to do.

If anyone could help and would be willing to handhold a nervous wreck then you would be awesome. PM me if you like.

Thank you.

Dear Chris,

Thanks for sharing that experience with us! Neither of you guys will forget this day. My Dad went to be with the Lord at 57, more than 40 years ago. He went through the Navy curriculum, Stearman, SNJ, Hellcat, carrier qualifying in the Hellcat. The day I soloed The Six, his Navy wings were in my flight suit pocket. I haven't felt closer to him since his passing.

Very cool Chris. Tell Mike he needs to work on his prop blur though.

Thank you for all your suggestions, folks. Looks like Zenfolio will have my serious attention when I get back to Texas (all the prices are in UKP at the moment! Geolocation, it's great)

Jim, thank you, that would be very awesome.

Chris, how very cool to be able to do that, I bet you and your Dad were both very proud!

Oh and lastly, does anyone have any good locations for photographing planes at Heathrow while dragging three heavy bags around? I have some time to kill before meeting my friend tomorrow and a new 300mm micro 4/3 lens burning a hole in my camera bag Although I might well just go and play tourist and visit museums all day...

Jo,

If the forecast remains the same, then they will be using 09L for arrivals & 09R for departures.

The only really good place to get departure shots from off of 09R is Feltham Park. This is around a 20mins walk from Hatton Cross Tube station.

There is an embankment you can shoot 09L arrivals from. Maybe a 10-15mins walk from T5. You could then leave your bags at the left luggage in the landside arrivals area of T5.

Email me if you need directions to either.

Jo,

spot D in the guide at this link is where you want to go for 09L arrivals. Probably best if you only have the MFT camera with you.

Ah, lovely, thank you. Turns out my friend wants to pick me up near T5 anyway so maybe I will give that a go if I get there early. I think I am going to visit the V&A Museum for a spot of culture before I head out to Heathrow.

Well I hope these look OK. I've been sorting out some colour profile problems but it looks like I've solved them (based on the prints). Several pages back we had "The Pitts" so here's the "Ultimate"
