Very excited to get this photo group up and running!
Those who are new to this: This is a NS M&A photo group to encourage, grow and get excited about photography. We'll have assignments and goals as photographers every 2-4 weeks. Check out my feeler post for more information regarding the. You will be expected to contribute to most assignments, critiques, and discussions so we can become a community. Link here.
Assignment #1 - Why we're here
To start this off, and to become more familiar with each other, let's get to know each other, and our work.
- A simple paragraph about yourself as a photographer. Talk about where you are now, where you hope to go. Photographers that inspire you, your favorite type of photography. We want to get to know each other as people, so we can understand where we're coming from and help each other improve.
- What gets you inspired to shoot photos. Do you see magazine ads and want to have the same impact? Read Time and want to cover world issues? What gets you going?
- A quick list of your gear, and editing software. Gear is not everything, but it definitely makes a difference. Knowing this can help us understand how to use certain lenses to get the desired effect.
- (Assuming that we all ski, since this is NS) 3 ski photos that mean something.
Let's start off with something we all love; Skiing. You can upload right in the thread, to an album in Flickr, or to a page on your website (please just make it easy for us to see). In just a few sentences describe why each photo means something. Did you learn a new part of composition? Did the skier finally land the trick they were going for? This will also help you wade through your work, and begin to understand why certain images stand out from others.
For Now: Let's not critique images. Only positive comments. I'd like to build friendship, trust, and commitment to this group. Later, we will definitely have critique sessions and discuss goals we want to work towards.
Also, if there's any way I can improve on this please send me a message. I'm excited to get this started and share my love for photography with you all. However I don't want to do it in a difficult manner. Thanks!
