WFMC ADMIN March 17, 2015
The focus of this group is scenic landscape photography and still life with a special twist, capture it with a simple camera: cell phone, digital point and shoot, one use camera, etc.

So travel light, no SLR, no tripod, no detachable lenses, or cable release!

The Wikipedia definition: "A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects."

Group Description

Photos taken on trips using either digital point and shoot or cell phone cameras. Using simple equipment, I have captured scenic views that I wish to broadcast to the world. Typical themes are scenery, nature, buildings, skylines, interesting cloud formations, transit systems, industry -- not personal photos of people. If someone incidental is part of the scene, no problem.

So why "WFMC"? "FMC" are my initials and the "W" is one of the letters used for a broadcast station in the USA. I grew up on the east coast so I chose "W".

Group Rules

Be nice to others. Negative, obscene photos, obscene content or comments will not be tolerated in this group.

Please do not post photos of critical infrastructure or military items that may be inappropriate. Use common sense: A scenic photo of a bridge from a distance - good - vs. a photo that shows detail of the structure from below would be a problem! Look at the photos that I have initially posted and I think the context will become obvious.

The focus here is what can be done with a simple point and shoot or cell phone cameras with an emphasis on scenery, nature, buildings, skylines, interesting cloud formations, transit systems, industry -- not personal photos of people.

This is what Wikipedia calls the style other than landscape:

"A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on)."

Besides the landscape scenery, notice that there is a photo of antique light bulbs, the brewing vessels in a beer brewery, desks in an open office.
