New Announcement: Hello World

Group Description

Who / What:This group is for anyone in central Ohio who wants to meet up with other Flickr folks...

Purpose: We all live in the Columbus area, we all take photos, and we all use Flickr. This is a chance for us regardless of skill level or equipment (from camera phones to big SLR camera, digital or film) to all get together and take photos, learn from each other and make new friends. This is during out to be a very social group and our events are very easy going and fun.

This group is where meetup plans are developed, communicated, etc. This is also the place where we can post photo's from the meetup and photo stroll events.

We try to have at least one or two events per month, usually some type of photo stroll (less in the winter/more in the summer), and we occassionally have social meet up's where people can just hang out and get to know each other (camera's of course are always welcome)

Events: We have started to use upcoming.yahoo.com/group/3656/ site to schedule actual events. The site makes it easier to remember the event, to communicate out any change, and to give an idea how many people will be at a given event. Since 'UpComing' is another Yahoo! site you don't need a seperate login, it takes ten seconds to get setup, so go on over and get yourself setup.

Other Flickr Meet Groups:
Flickr Meet - Columbus : Critique Forum: The place to give and recieve helpful feedback on your images.
Last Minute Meet-Up: If your interested in last minute unplanned meetup's with folks to take random photo strolls check it out as most of those types of dicussions will happen over there.

Photo Pool: Please upload photos that are either 1.) From a Flickr Meet Event and if so, add the flickrmeet tag noted at the bottom 2.) is a photo taken in Columbus or is about Central Ohio that you captured 3.) is something special to you that you want to upload for the group to enjoy i.e. other photos of where you've been or a photo you really dig.

Photos that are more a photoshop creation than a photograph will be removed (subject to the discression of the moderators), editing and retouching is fine but the focus is on the photograph not on the playing in photoshop to create 'art'.

NO DUMPING: Please refrain from posting multiple images of the same or very similar subject in a repetitive nature. If you took a series of similar photos upload the best for everyone to view, if folks want to view more they can click through your photostream. If your close to the line or over it you may get a note from one of the group moderators, or one or more of the 'dumped' images may get the boot.

... to see Black & White images in the photo pool use the tag cmhflickrmeetbw.

Photos's don't have to be master pieces, all talent level is welcome in the photo pool from cell phone camera's to mega camera's all are welcome in the pool, it's an All Swim!

No Advertising: This group is not the place to promote your business. Some discussion of businesses is great but not talking up yours.... subject to the discretion of the admins/moderators.

Membership: While all are free to join, the admins and moderators can remove anyone for any reason at any time.

Posting Limits: Member's are limited to posting 2 photos a day, and we would ask that you only upload two photos sequentially so that the photos are mixed in with other's and everyone's photos get a chance to shine.
