So, they want to remove your rights and make it easier to find out personal information from you, but woe betide you wanting to find out what they are doing. 
Ministers could be given stronger powers to block scrutiny of public bodies under government transparency law, Downing Street has said.

That's a serious rig!
Photographer Jim Winters of Miami, Florida, created this crazy-looking DIY shoulder-mounted "triple axis" rig for taking pictures of planes at airshows. He

I'm going to bite the bullet and cough up for Lightroom. It made a reasonable attempt at importing my photos from Aperture (better than Apple's Photos app did, anyway).

The dilemma now is whether to go for the Creative Cloud plan or just buy the standalone thing.

+James O'Gorman +Ryan Prince Adobe CC vs Standalone.....

When I looked into this about a year ago (might be more actually) I had just upgraded to LR4 which at the time I think cost £70.  I was also starting to take photography and post processing a bit more seriously.  At the time I was very much into my HDR and had a friend in the US that seemed to finish all of his images in PS, so I started to try and understand his workflow and investigate if I could sell a limb (lol) to afford a standalone copy of PS.  I think at the time the version I wanted CS6 was about £300 plus.  

I investigated CC and did the maths.  With the above prices and a subscription to the Photographers package (I pay £8.57 a month) I could happily use the CC for 3/4 years without it costing me any more.  This time period would also give me chance to refine my workflow.

Do I use the CC Package to its full extent?  Well LR is my main workhorse and photo organiser.  All of my 'keep' shots end up touching this program is some form during my workflow, which with CC has changed (I will expand more in a moment).  PS is a nice to have and I do use it fairly often.  I have set myself the challenge of learning this more and I probably use it on photos that need more detailed post processing and I love layers etc.

To me the advantages of the CC are the following:
1) Always have the most up to date versions of LR and PS.  Got LR CC (6) last week and can see improvements and uses.
2) Mobile apps have changed my workflow in the field (coffee shop to you and I) and means that I can start editing whilst I am out (the Sony A6000 with NFC and Wifi has helped  this) and carry on at home where the photo (and edits) are waiting for me.  Lots of apps that work with CC so this needs more that just one paragraph.
3) 20gb of storage and Behance account.  Nice to have and I do store some of my pics there but I primarily use Google Drive where I have 1TB. 
4) Weird one here....when I watch training videos etc I always have the version they are talking about.

Just a quick note about how my workflow has changed and why in 2/3 years time I may change again......Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 by OnOne.  This was introduced to me by +Scott Davenport and has almost superseded PS in my workflow.  I know use this to view my pictures before transferring on the 'Keep' ones to LR, most if not all of my editing is now done in this suite and finally I interlinks with all the CC Programs seamlessly.  Every photo I post now goes through PPS 9.5

+James O'Gorman with regards to transferring from Aperture to LR +Scott Davenport would be good to touch base with.  He is a San Diego based photographer whom is just making the jump as we speak.  He has documented some of his highs and lows on his blog so check it out here http://www.scottdavenportphoto.com/blog/

Not sure if any of this has helped but feel free to give me a shout if not.

In summary....I love the Photographers Package on the CC - it fits "me" at this time in my photography journey.

Hmm, maybe next weekend will be good for a visit. There will also be searchlights in three locations as part of the VE Day commemorations.

Performing the slow, painful dance of exporting from #Aperture  and into #Lightroom .

In some ways this has been a good exercise because it's forced me to go through every single image in my Aperture library and cull the things which needed it, and also found rather a lot of duplicates, from my very early days of photography and where I had migrated from Picasa to iPhoto and then to Aperture.

Thanks to +Darren Button who pointed me at +Scott Davenport's blog - Scott's migration guide has been invaluable! I had previously tried multiple things to do the migration - initially starting with Lightroom's Aperture importer, but this just imported "modified" images intact, thus making useless duplicates.

So far the process seems to be going well. Just a little daunted at the thought of having to re-learn how to process photos... I imaging I'm going to be hitting Aperture keyboard shortcuts and doing the wrong thing for some time yet :-)

Pretty cool.

Although I'm trying to work out if the "abstract sculpture" is really supposed to come out looking like dick-butt in the photo.

Sometimes I love people. And Photoshop.

This had me in stitches.
Be careful when asking the Internet to Photoshop a photo for you. The results may be unexpected and you could find yourself turned into the latest Internet
