At last I have my own Tourweaver

I am new to Easypano, this is my first post. I have been playing around with digital photography, panoramas, mast photography for around 18 months and I have found it fairly hard, especially because I had no interest at all in photography before 18 months ago, also I am in virtually full time employment (50 plus hours a week on a casual basis) so I have  little time, and I am 77 yars old which doesent help!!!   Anyway now, at last, Ive got Tourweaver and I was delighted to read the post "First steps into tourweaver" from a week or two ago.  I now know I have got help if I need it----and Ive no doubt I will need it    Mike Owen

Welcome to the forum Mike.

A good day is looking down at the grass and not up at the roots

50 hours a week at 77    Take Jerry's advice, slow down and smell the roses.

Need any help remember this is the place to come, good luck to you.

Hi Mike,

Welcome to the Easypano forums. I know you from the panoguide forum. People here are willing to help you along. We look forward to seeing your work.

From memory you were using a Canon 300D?

Regards, Smooth

Well-----thanks a lot everyone for your welcome. I must just reply to two points. To pixelator, I understand what you mean but I enjoy my work (most of the time). I am a coach driver and if I get the chance I love doing tour work. During my life I have had periods of too much time on my hands (unemployed etc) and for various reasons which I wont go into, I also need the money. If I didnt like it, I wouldnt do it!!! Next, to Smooth.  You have made me feel important!! How on earth can a Moderator no less remember not only me but even my camera!!!  Actually you helped me with something in panoguide, I dont even remember just what it was, but I do remember telling you that I would buy Tourweaver as soon as time and cash allowed. nyway, you have made me feel l0 feet tall     Mike Owen

Gee Mike's comment make me feel great.  At one time I thought I was the eldest at 65 in the forum (sorry had to take a moment and use my age calculator).

One nice thing about this forum... it certainly age levels the panorama field.

Hello Dave,   I take it from your comments {Needing an age calculator etc} that you dont start receiving some great PENSION when you reach 65?  Oh dear. Its trying to live on this pension which made me try to make some cash out of photography|!!!    Mike

Hi Mike,  I worked 37 years with the Corps of Engineers.  Made decision to retire at 56.  2nd best decision I ever made. 1st was marrying my wife 41 years ago.    We have 4 or 5 paying projects each year.  Earn enough to have to pay income tax on the income and collect and pay to the Governer sales tax (VAT),  and still pay for all the cameras, lenses, software etc.  Ah and still have enough to buy a pint or two at the end of the day.

What do we charge for our work?  Simple terms http://360texas.com/services/info.htm   Retirement means keeping arrangments simple - no fuss.

Yes our clients are advertising and marketing companies,  professional photographers that do not want to learn how to do panorama imaging and web page designers.    Real Estate ?  Maybe not unless they are marketing (read have large advertising budget) million dollar homes.

Hope all is well in the UK.  I have a couple panorama photographer friends in the Wirral/ Liverpool/ Manchester area that I chat with frequently.
