OK, folks. There was some discussion of photography in another thread and I thought it might be fun to start a sort of clinic, where interested folks could submit their photos for critique by a couple folks who seem to know a thing or two about photography.
These aren't meant to be public lashings, humiliation or anything of the like, but rather, an opportunity for all of us to improve our photographic skills. I don't know about you folks, but I've learned a ton about photography by having someone that actually knows what good composition and exposure are provide me with comments on my shots.
SNC1923 (Tom) and Knary (Scott) will offer commentary on photos submitted.
All right. Here are the rules:
Photos have to be shot this weekend.
You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it)
No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software)
Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
Post your photos in this thread only. DO NOT start a thread in reply to this assignment.
Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo.
And, the most important rule - Have Fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.
We'll try running this for a few weeks and see what happens. I think we have a number of folks on board the really know how to take pictures, but we also have a significant number of people that really want to learn how to do so.
This week's theme is "A long way to go". You can interpret this however you'd like. Pictures of roads, pictures of little kids learning something, you make the call. It's just like those writing assignments they gave you in high school where you had to write about "pride" or something.
Have at it and we'll look forward to seeing some of your work on Monday!
