Re: Using the Online Forum

I'd been thinking about a quick "how to" for photo posting, I'll put something up this afternoon. It might be worthwhile to set up a number of "how to's" and make them stickies in the General forum for things which people might not otherwise find. Some suggestions: ⋅  ...

Using the Online Forum

If anyone is unsure of how to use the forum and get the best from it, I am willing to host a small informal session to take people through the forum and its features. For reasons of space, I can only accommodate 4 or 5 people at a time, but if there is sufficient interest I can always hold more than...

Re: RPS - thoughts?

This is a good question. I am fairly confident that many people join the RPS simply to hold one of its distinctions, which do confer a certain amount of prestige within the photographic community. A condition of using the xRPS letters after your name is that membership is maintained and I would not ...

Re: London Wetland Centre - gauging interest

Dave If you are a fan of otters, then you would like the British Wildlife Centre (http://www.britishwildlifecentre.co.uk/) which has three enclosures for these entertaining creatures. As you would expect from the name, it also has a host of other British fauna, including a walkthrough cage with red ...

Re: My First Photo

My first "photo" is almost certainly my wife when I got my dSLR 18 months ago! Not exciting!


Dave, things might get a bit more exciting for you if your wife ever gets to see this forum. ;)

Re: Waiting

I enjoyed this one Mike. Not many people would have spotted a photo op in such an unlikely subject. Thanks for sharing. Thanks, Nina. Whilst I cannot recall any specific images, at the time of shooting I was aware that this sort of thing has been done before, as a quick search on Flickr using the s...

Re: Waiting

Is it mono or just a particularly B&W scene? It was a very monochromatic scene, with the aluminium chairs against a dark background, which was darker than usual through being wet. However, I did convert the image into mono using Silver Efex Pro 2, which I find to be very effective at giving a g...

Waiting

My daughter graduated earlier this year and as she will be continuing the research on the topic of her thesis at the university, she had a number of people to see after the ceremony. As we were travelling together, this meant that there were a couple of hours to wait which were spent in the cafe on ...

Re: To start the ball rolling....

Hi Nina Thanks for sharing. The technical quality of the images is stunning, given that taking pictures is your phone's secondary function. The aesthetic quality is without question, of course. :) The first is obviously a candid, but the three girls in the second shot must have been aware of you if ...

My First Photo

To be correct, it is the first photo which I can remember taking, but I thought that it would be an appropriate anecdote for my first entry on this forum. My interest in photography began when I was about 5 or 6 and used to "help" my dad print photos in his darkroom. I was fascinated by se...
