Ive had lots of meetings recently via zoom and the system is very good.

How do we all think about having a "Ask the experts" meeting one eveing next week ?

Hopefully we could have a selection of experienced photographers who could answer questions on technique and business matters.

Might be a good way for us al to get to know each other better.

Let me know in the comments what you think

Interesting idea. I think you would need to send out an invite and see how many respond. There may also be difficulties with times zones.

Has some potential. Now all I need is that slow boat from China with my webcam.

Would be good to have a chat with other photographers to see how they are dealing with the current climate etc.

It doesn't seem right for photography, we all know photography should be via Primes :exit:

Unless I have to be somewhere... which is very unlikely... I should be available for this!

Yes indeed, I would enjoy being part of it. I'm the Commercial Photographer at the British Library in London so can input on all aspects of Cultural Heritage digitisation, marketing and image licensing.

I do have zoom but I fall into that awkward category of being fairly experienced (so not needing much help) but not good enough to confidently offer advice to others. The only area I need help with is understanding RAW but I really need a one to one to progress with that.

That would certainly be something worth hearing about.

Hello Guys

Thank you for the email and the info about Zoom.

Sounds a very good idea indeed. Please keep me informed as I am very interested.

Regards,

Brilliant sounds like enough interest.

Your ability should not be an issue, we can all learn from each other.

On the free zoom sessions we can have up to 45 minutes per meeeting. Im not sure there is a limit on numbers.

What time during the day would suit all of us ?

Plenty of interest!

4:00pm my time is 9:00pm London time so any afternoon works for me.

9pm UK time is a good time for those in the US as even PST it is only 12 noon.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Zoom would be my preferred choice as it gives good flexibility so everyone can view without having to show their own video if they don't want to.

I have a corporate Zoom account that will allow 100 people in at once. It's very good, so happy to offer this up for use, if that helps?

Will that allow us to extend the meeting past the 45 minute threshold ?

If so that is a fine gensture.

Yes it will. I have one at work as well and can say, sadly, that I have been on it for hours at a time.

longest I've used it for is just over 3 hours. Can safely say that it will run for longer than we will!
