I sat beside the pool in 30 degree temperatures a week ago, it was awesome. The most harmful thing around was people, and they're only potentially harmful.

But when you have to do work in such situations, the novelty isn't so great. It was 31 on the way to work this morning at 8:15am, expected to get to about 36-37 today. I much prefer the spring/autumn in atlanta, pretty much like having 2 christchurch summers - mid 20s and not oppressive humidity.

Cold here in Germany today. Warmed up to 18.
You don't know how good it is in New Zealand till you leave.
The main thing that I don't like about living here is the Loooooooooooooong cold winters. Basically you can say winter starts in mid September (That's basically where you unpack the Long trousers & mothball the Jandals), then it gets really cold for winter. Summer doesn't come back till May (If you are lucky).
Summer also gets pretty hot.

Where as here - real winter lasts about 5-8 weeks between mid dec to early feb. Enough that you feel like you get 4 seasons a year, but not long enough that you're not thinking it's never warm. I tend to have a trip to Florida (Disney) during that period, so never really pack the jandals.

Yeah thought it was a bit small, but had good variation and yes, some interesting stuff. I liked the new Renault hatchy thing (was it a megane?), and Sarah loved the Mini Countryman :) Also. Kia Optima. That car is freakin beautiful!

Snowed all day here in Qtown. Never went above freezing, so for the first time I've ever seen, the snow didn't immediately turn to slush! It's still falling and still made of powdery chrunchy goodness!!

Hi all
I am looking for comments on using a flash bracket. I have a growing number of opportunities for shooting candids at events as a result of my work in shooting concert performances (non-flash). I would like to avoid the ugly shadows that occur with camera rotation.There are many types of brackets available and opinions for and against all it would seem. Those who have used or are using brackets may care to offer their thoughts - it would be appreciated.
Secondly, the music director of the organisations I have photographed would very much like to buy the rights to use hi res files of a number of the shots I have taken, for electronic and print media. How should I go about this? Do I sell away my rights? Do I sell the right to use with acknowledgement and if so for how long? And how much to charge per file? What's the process?
Would greatly appreciate input on these topics.
Iain

Shooting direct flash with the camera in portrait orientation is the only time I would consider using a bracket. They're annoying and the one I had was/is uncomfortable, I haven't used it in years. You're welcome to borrow it to give it a go, just pay shipping from Wellington, if you want it you can have it for half the current retail cost.

Generally you sell limited usage rights to images. The tricky bit is how much, what usage, and for how long.
