"I refuse to believe there are no professional print shops in the UK."

I have used DSCL for many years and have been most happy with everything
they have printed for me ..........

In 2014, a military pilot in the UK got his Nikon D5300 jammed in the controls, causing the plane to take a quick 4400' dive. He was court marshalled, and now there are ten lawsuits filed against the Ministry of Defence.

Google - Plane plunged 4400 feet after pilot's camera became wedged against controls

What actually happened was the pilot, alone in the cockpit, taking pictures. (The co-pilot was in the galley)
Once finished snapping, he placed the camera on his seat armrest.
Re-adjusting his seat (electrically) to continue his flying duties, the camera was pushed forward, now wedged between the armrest and the side-stick, pitching the aircraft hard nose down. The co-pilot managed to re enter the cockpit, but was pinned to the ceiling due to -ve G. The plane recovered from the dive due to the sophisticated software onboard the Airbus 330 - not input from the pilots...

This article in Flight Global gives more detail.....

Just thought I would chip in my six-pennyworth.....

I reside in the middle-east (as I set up my photography businesses here)
and the idea of going out alone is not one we even think about.......
Daytime (commercial) shoots usually involve 3-4 team members.
Usually 1 'tog and 3 'assistants'.
Night time - we usually don't accept commissions unless
the client is willing to pay a hefty overhead.

The last one we did in June 2016 had 11 of my team milling
around, all with 2-way radios and under the (occasional) watchful eye of a local
police patrol.. Heavy stuff, but the rewards are equally awesome.....

So, enjoy your shooting if you wander alone, but always consider the dangers
which may present themselves - often in the least threatening places......

I think there are some "Hogs" who can't wait for a new post to appear, just so the can post, "use the search function at the top of the page."

In some cases, it seems it is their 'raison d'être'

I have replaced by brace of D4s bodies with a pair of D5's. Still quite early days but, as I have owned D4 and D4s models over a period of time, I can only state (with honesty) that the D5 is more than a worthy successor.

ps I do not bother reading the critiques (especially on here) from amateur armchair experts who blether on without really knowing what they are talking about ........good for their ego's though, no doubt.....

I use Affinity Photo and Captire One. Gave Photoshop and Lightroom the boot.

Good to find a 'free thinking' photographer on here for a change !

I use Paintshop Pro and Aftershot Pro 3, and sometimes Photoshop elements. They all work well.

Judging by the orderly queue, they must be Brit dogs .........

I charge £250/hour studio £350/hour location. Clients receive low-res/watermarked proofs on disk. Clients choose 6 shots which are PP'd and printed onto archival paper. (8x10 or A4). Extra prints can be supplied @£20 with price breaks for higher quantities. Hope that's of some use........

Now I don't want to rain on your parade - but if you go back around 30+ years - the English Electric Lightning used to demonstrate a vertical climb direct from the rotate. Wheels up at 20 feet, full burner, stick hard back and watch her go.......Not sure if there is anything on YouTube ?

But thanks for the graphic display of unnatural.
