I want our members to put on their thinking caps and help me come up with some kind of mission statement, since the launch of love4photography on shadowness. I have not only been amazed at the quality of work,but people wanting to join this group too.
Love4Photography is there for its members so that we can all come together to not only share the work we create,but to learn new skills make friends, share ideas and even maybe pass on knowledge in what ever subject we might specialise in to our fellow photographers.
Feedback and positive constructive critiques not only helps each and every one of us get better in taking a photo, but so that we can further our creativity and develop new skills too
It is also good when some one asks how was this photo or artwork created
This is your group so start doing what damien-c has already started in wanting to share what he has learnt about street photography. So if you ever wanted to know or even got curious about what its like to do macro,landscape,or feel like passing on a few tips,suggestions please do so.
Sounds like a good idea :) I don't think I'm technically that good at photography since I haven't had the opportunity to purchase any of the equipment. I'm so fortunate to finally get my own DSLR camera, I only got it in January and it's a starter, but better than not having any :). The area where I'm lacking in is I don't know about flash or lighting, and using filters and stuff. What I would love to try is long exposures but not sure about metering. I know those are things you can look up online but just feel like I would need to practice using it to know.
I can give input on conceptual photography :) I'm actually thinking to start a group for it
i don't know if you saw what i was trying to do over on DA with love4photography but going back to to early days, blogs would go out to all members (which as of now is close to nearly 3,000) say once a week/month covering topics such as calibarating ones monitor, lense reversal and how to make your own textures.
When it comes to being technically minded i am not of this calibre too which is why i concentrate on subjects that are easy to photograph,one often hears this coming up all the time about it doesn't matter what kind of camera you have,its the question on being able to use it.At the same time photography should be fun, unless there are reasons where
one wants to make a bit of money from it too
As with sharing what knowledge tips or suggestions one has to pass on in their chosen subject,feel free to post something on conceptual photography.
I'm sorry I haven't seen it. I honestly have been inactive from dA for quite a long time, I checked from time to time. My interest left.
I think it's a good idea. I'm yet to try the reverse lens technique to do some macro shots, but I rather get the ring to attach to the camera, cus I'm clumsy. lol
True, I always enjoy photography and see it as fun, and make the most out of what I can from what I have. That's how I learned :) but I would love to try different things and to achieve that the equipment does influence the outcome.
deviant art doesn't seem to be doing ok these days which is i guess so many are on here
as with topics like creating textures and the reversal lens technique these were done by two previous admins over at L4P (DA) the aim was to get the members to contribute too but it never took off (like writing blogs)
any way i have always enjoyed photography ever since i got one of these disposable cameras out of a cereal box,finally i want to move further in getting a DSLR
even though one can't see the physical side of the drama over at DA, there is a sense of it not being how i once remembered where everyone could do what you and i are doing now
like chatting or even looking at what one creates for everyone to see.
As with what camera i use i actually have two hee hee a canon powershot S3 IS (6mp) and a Finepix (Fuji) AX245 (12mp)
