Welcome to another week in the forum! First a big congrats to everyone who won in last month’s contest. And a thank you to everyone else who has helped make the forum a great place to learn.
First things first, this week we finished the Kairos for his picture of Hastings pier in the UK which showed a beautiful sunset without the aid of any post-processing. Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s challenge!
Our current assignment, Rivers, is in progress, so go find those babbling brooks and running rivers and take some pictures. In order to be eligible for the mini-contest, your picture needs to have been taken between 13-26 February 2008, the exif must still be in tact, and your post must include “Assignment:Rivers” somewhere in the post so that we know that you want your picture to be included in the judging process. Next week’s assignment will be Shadows.
Last week we asked people what type of camera they use. This wasn’t about Canon or Nikon, but rather the general type of camera. Most of our forum members are using dSLRs, but a good number of people are also using point & shoots and bridge cameras. And what was good to see in this poll is that people are generally happy with the camera’s they’re using.
dcarso41 said, “The Panasonic Lumix, DMC-LZ4, I have now is a good user friendly point and shoot for beginners with lots of pre-arranged photo setups. But for a beginner like me it doesn’t offer enough manual freedom to advance as broadly as I imagine I could. Baby steps….. for now.”
aramil said, “I am using a Fujifilm S5700, which has manual options so I suppose it is a bridge camera. I am happy with it for now, ‘specially since I am just getting into photography. And I do like the darn thing. It is sturdy and reliable and so far has taken some good images, still though I wish it had the Face Detection technology.”
And finally, Taallyn said, I have a Nikon D80 DSLR, some lenses, a flash and other stuff. I love all of the versatility and options it gives me when shooting. Sometimes I use it like a point and shoot, but most of the time I’m shooting in full manual to get the most control I can out of it. Its biggest drawback is that it is big and I need a backback/slingbag to carry it around.”
This week, tell us if you have any of your own pictures hanging in our house and drop by the thread and show us your wall.
And finally, we have another week of What Would You Do. These are our weekly post-processing threads where you get a chance to edit another forum member’s photograph each week. You can practice your editing skills, show off your editing skills, or just have some fun with it. In fact, this week’s edits have been a lot of fun so far, so drop by this thread and join in the fun!
