gigantic rock [deleted] says:

Back to the original threads intention :D

Tam here, trying to make the full integration back into film, though I'm still relying on digital that little bit too much.

Each roll of film is an attempt at learning or perfecting a new technique I've discovered, so this group will come in particularly handy for me...

matt_cinque says:

getting back on track...

im matt,

my background has been in 3D modeling and rendering but have recently discovered photography, im learning something (if not many things) every day and the community here has been an amazing source of knowledge.

i try to be as non linear in my approach as possible, the word "purist" makes me gag and ill use any tool or technique i have at my disposal as long as it allows me to create something a little closer to whats going on inside my head

Hi, This is David Kessler.I currently reside in Ithaca, NY and have been re-inventing my photography for about 40 years and my digital manipulations for about 15 years. My best works are still bouncing around in my cerebral cortex in an attempt to break free and be nurtured in the atmosphere. I am currently using a Nikon D50 which is about to move over to make way for a new Nikon D300 which I just ordered.

Later,
A work in progress.

TwistedToad says:

Hello All!
1st Thanks for the invite!! My name is Todd but friends call me Toad. The Twisted part is from the "crazy" things I have done in my past and some things now. I have always loved looking at everyone's pics from when I was a lil guy. Now that I'm older I am just starting to take some myself. Why I have waited so long? Good question... I ask myself that all the time. I just bought a Sony DSC-H9. I thought for the very low price I bought it for and all the settings I can learn on it it would be a good "learning" camera. Any and all comments are welcome and also feel free to add me as a contact! Peace, Love, and Happiness to all!!

Hey Cog, can you explain what you mean by using the photos here to make a point in the articles you write? Who decides which photos get posted to the pool? We select photos to illustrate your point, you ask us to post a photo that meets your article?

I am, as usual, a bit confused?

Vicki / Knitorious says:

Hi, I'm Vicki.

I live in NE Wisconsin. I think I can safely say, we've all had enough of winter here (it's snowing as I write) and it can be spring now!

I am looking to buy my first DSLR this spring and have my eye on the Canon Rebel xsi and the Sony alpha 300/350 cameras. I've shot with a Sony Cybershot DSC-S85 for the past quite a few years -- it's treated me amazingly well and I love it; I'm also more loyal than most dogs, so even though I think the Canon might be smarter, I've got this thing for Sony...

I'm a complete amateur, but enjoy taking photos -- candid portraits of my family (especially two young nephews) (so I need FAST!), sometimes interesting photos of my flowers and texture in my garden, whimsies while traveling, the sky, food, yarn and fiber and my knitting, all kinds of stuff...

I have nurtured and developed a deeper interest in photography over the past few years. I've been doing more serious play with Photoshop Elements lately, also, and I'm ready to discover ways to improve!

Thanks for letting me in.

Damien Franco is a group administrator Damien Franco says:

@ Ray
Basically I like to use other photographer's images (at times) to use as an example for an article on photography tips or techniques.

I always credit the image to the photographer, with links, in an effort to help get him/her more exposure. My readers love the photographs that accompany the articles.

Any image chosen is purely based on the content of that particular article, although I will look into adding a widget showcasing the group pool if it works well with the new design I'm currently working on. I guess if I'm working on a longer article I could post some requests for specific image types.

Anyway, if you don't want your images on the website do not post them in the pool. You can still be a member of the group and participate in any discussions and interactions that get started here.

Cog,

I understood I was under no obligation to post a photo. I guess the question is how did/do you envision photos be placed in the pool? You invite, we select based on our option of our best? I was not trying to 'rain on your parade' just trying to understand the expectations of your group.

@ Ray
I didn't think you were raining on my parade lol. You upload whatever you want to share. It doesn't mean it will appear on the website, I only write about three articles a week. I just choose an image that will help illustrate the article that I am working on at the time, that's all for now. If we start doing some extra things with the group to get more exposure for all of you great photographers I'm all for it. In fact you guys can start any threads or discussions pertaining to photography tips or how to get exposed as a photographer. I love to see active group participation.

PatriciaPix says:

Greetings everyone. I'm Patricia, I'm a journalist and I live in seaside Oxnard, California, north of Los Angeles and home of the California Strawberry Festival. I've been taking pictures for probably about 40 years, but got seriously into photography in the past 7 years. I've been shooting digital exclusively for about 6 years. Humor, color, travel and dogs are among my favorite photo subjects. I'm mostly self-taught in Photoshop Elements and other photo software programs, so there's a lot I don't know and have never tried. I'm hoping to learn lots of photo tips about how to use my camera and photo editing software from others here. Thanks for inviting me into the group, Damien.

raddad! aka Randy Knauf is a group moderator raddad! aka Randy Knauf says:

Hello, I'm Randy. I've been shooting 35mm since I was about 12 years old. About 3 years ago I made the jump to digital and haven't looked back. I love to take my shots into Photoshop and "tweak" them to see what I can do. Sometimes I just close the program without saving the mess I've made, but sometimes I'm blown away with what comes out. I feel I'm sometimes too emotionally attached to what has happened to the picture to be a very good judge, so I'm always looking for criticism. You won't hurt my feelings so please visit my photo stream and tell me what you really think of what I've done.

♥ Marae ♥ says:

Hi everyone! Damien thank you for the invite. My name is Marae and I live in Enola, Pa (Harrisburg area). I used to shoot with a Nikon 6006 but got out of any sort of photography other than point and shoot for about 8 years. Now I am back and trying to relearn everything I have forgotten. I have a Nikon D80 as my newest toy. I don't own Photoshop or any editing program so what you see it the raw unedited image. Only thing I can do is make them, B&W or Sepia really. I will invest in something sooner or later but for now I figure I need to get back into just shooting in general. I look forward to the constructive criticism.

Hi All . . .

Thanks to "A Cognitive State of Mind" for the invite.

I'm Fritz, "existing" in St. Paul, MN. An old "wet darkroom" guy who still shoots mostly film (B&W). I've done my own printing since I was 18, but I'm trying out this new digi stuff. I'm a serious amateur with some formal training over the years.

More of an "intutive" photog rather than hard-core techie. I have done paid gigs, low-volume photo series and some commissioned work over the years. I'm semi-retired clergy, tho not very retired.

This new technology is pretty amazing actually and I'm having fun with the possibilities. "Kicking tires" for a digi DSLR at the moment.

I have no idea of what any of the setting mean, other than auto lol! I really had it in my head I wanted the Canon Rebel, but believe it or not, the salesman talked me out of it ( it was more exspensive, so go figure) Anyway, I am glad because I think I need to take "baby" steps. I am knee deep in the user guide. I guess one of my challenges is, I don't know what they are talking about with words like apendeture and macro and so forth. I need a newbie glossary ;)
Any help, advice, tips would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Looking forward to learning!

secondcareer says:

Greetings from Los Angeles. I'm Joe, I've been shooting since 1973 when I borrowed my sister's Minolta Hi-Matic 7s and fell in love. I used to be a pro (my second career is in non-art related academia), and I set aside my cameras in the early 90s to concentrate on family. Photoshop, scanners and a D70 have drawn me back in, and now I either shoot new (family and travel, mostly) or scan through years of archives. It's amazing how many negatives and slides I never printed that are actually usable. I was a decent studio photographer and had a few magazine covers in my portfolio, but these days I'm more interested in available light.

Thanks for the invite. This looks like it will be a fun group.

Howdy ya'll!

My name is Justin and I currently reside in Florida (transplanted from the deserts of West Texas by the US Navy).

I became interested in photography when my wife and I decided to have children. I mainly use photography to document our family life (as you can see by the subjects in most of my photos) but I have found myself more and more interested in all types of photography.

Thanks for the invite.

Hi, my name is Tom and I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I'm an amateur and just like to shoot my life with a Nikon D40. I became interested in photography and video when I had my kids with a point-and-shoot and have moved up to DSLR and love it.
