wquatman ADMIN August 23, 2010
Welcome!!!! We would really love for you to join our discussions.

Contribute something and/or take something away with you.

Also, please comment on the photos in the photopool. Everyone loves feedback on their photos as much as you do. What goes around comes around. We would also prefer that you to use our comment code when you do.

Invite friends. Learn and have fun! That´s our number one rule.

Group Description

The primary goal of this group is to provide a source to help its members become better nature and animal photographers. Everything else will pertain to this accomplishing this goal.
It is a member run group with discussion threads pertaining anything which members might find useful to accomplish this goal. This includes camera settings, operations and problems, stalking techniques, building a blind, where to see wildlife, composure, exposure techniques, what equipment to buy, etc.

Hopefully we can attract more experienced photographers to give advice and showcase photos for inspiration and assist in composition ideas, flash techniques, etc. Questions from everyone can help us to think or rethink or learn something we hadn´t thought about.

Threads can be started by any member to ask questions, give advice, start a contest, for the purpose of rating, etc.

Rules will be developed as necessary and decide on by the active members.

The photopool is open to any nature photo, animal photo, domestic, captive or wild. When the need arises we will probably need to institute a limit per day or per week.

Here´s the group´s comment code. Please comment on the photos in the photopool and paste this comment code below, between the lines..

If you would like to customize your own invite or comment code using your own photo just write the Admin and either a code can be made for you, or you can get the information to do it yourself.




How to post a photo in a thread:

1.) Select the photo you want in your photostream and open that photo

2.) Go to the top, just above the photo and find the magnifying glass icon with a + sign inside it, labeled "All Sizes". Click on that and another page should open.

3.) On the top of that page you´ll have a selection of sizes to choose from, like: Square, thumbnail, small, Medium, Large, Original. Click on the size you desire.

4.) After you click on that size another page will open with the size selected.

Look below the photo for a box labeled: "1. Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage:" and the box will have a code in it. Copy the code inside the box and paste it as a comment in the thread.

Once you click on "Post Now" your photo should show up in the thread.
