      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Simple Photo Setup

5 posts in this topic

This is my simple photo setup.  Darker blue cloth is a small table in front of a window.  Smaller blue square is on top of a biscuit tin for small subjects.   Removing the biscuit tin and square allows me to shoot larger subjects but I haven't had to do much of that so far. The white square bounces light from the window back on to the subject.  Very useful for darker subjects or on cloudy days to fill in shadows.

Top image is without the bounce, bottom with.  Camera is an old Samsung that has a feature that lets me shoot double images, like this, or quadruple ones.  Unavailable now so I take pretty good care of mine.

I thought you bought the same monster lights I did (Or was it Bootneck?  :hmmm:), the only thing I tend to need these days is sunglasses!  B)

I think that was Mike.  I went for the five normal-sized lights, but a bit of bounceback never hurt anyone :)

I get my bounceback off the ceiling!  :o

 

I worry that my neighbours might imagine something like this:
