Howdy there pones.
I have noticed that we have art threads, story threads music threads, heck even nice cool voice threads.

Also people have been sharing some pretty nature photos lately so i thought:

how about something new?
cameras in phones getting better and better and better with some cool settings. Why not take this opportunity for a small weekend challange?

People whom are educated photographers could help pin point newbies and what not or not  it´s a free idea of a thread.

we have a entire weekend ( we can adjust the "rules" later on ) to take some photos and then we can upload it on that sunday?


Really good idea, I applaud it.

Do we have educated photographers?

In any case, sounds like fun. I'll definitely snap a few images as long as the category isn't "selfies"!


File: 1565348021691.png (821.06 KB, 2672x3978, 1336:1989, I made this.png) ImgOps Google

i unno if we have. but we have many talented people in this village. i would not be surprised if one or two photographers lurked around

im not gonna promote selfies, since im will NEVER join that category, could be nature, moving objects, catching different lights. stuff like so

I paid a bunch of money on my camera, but frankly, my cell phone gets me better pictures.

Funny thing, I'll be out with the kids tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I will get to touch the camera as they'll likely be running around with it all the time.

I'm asking my sister for some tips right now. She took some classes and actually had a license at one point. If she gets back to me before the weekend is over, I'll post them.

Ah, I guess I was mistaken. She said she hasn't taken classes.

I suppose I assumed she did because she was really good and had some of her art hung up in a few salons.

Do not make it a competitive thing.

If I were to post things, I know it will likely be a catastrophal failure and I don't want my nose rubbed into it like a puppy's into a puddle of foul smelling feces.

I would hope no one here would put people down like that. Art is art, it's subjective.

But it is fun to kind of say "ooh that one's my favourite!"

I changed it t F because most of the posters here are American. 60F is just a bit too warm for me, but nothing too bad. The rain is my problem. It’s been near constant all week.

I wouldn't call myself educated, but I've certainly learned a thing or two from trial and error.

>60F is just a bit too warm for me
meanwhile I'm here in 78F under a blanket

funny enough, after a year or two in Okinawa Japan, I shifted my thermometer to Celsius because most of the temp gauges over there are in C. I got pretty used to it eventually.

60C isn't immediately fatal actually. not 12 months ago I had to walk around in that. Downed 2 500ml bottles of water on my 400m walk to the food court through a sandstorm. was fun.

Oh! I wish I had known about this. I don't think I took any pictures this weekend.

I like the winding railroad with the brush growing in. The wood and the metal and the crane are appealing as a composition, but I might left-crop the picture a little.

It's hard to do that kind of stuff without the right lens.

it wasn't. I was being sarcastic. A sandstorm is brutal in and of itself. braving 60F heat at the same time, and all because the brass didn't want to let us have food at our tents? not fun. definitely the opposite of fun. Did I mention I drank two entire water bottles during a quarter of a mile walk?! I was still thirsty after. Sandy deserts dry you out.

it happens

you have some of the most high profile food adventures I've ever seen, Moony. Have you ever eaten at a Cracker Barrel?

swamps are pretty cool

I did get to use my camera. But I don't consider it appropriate to bring them in this thread where people actually have been so very skillfull so far to tear down the level here with my sad attempts.

Maybe I'll keep them for a random moment in the future.


But...why? I don't think skill level matters.

I just took random freakin pictures of pretty trees.

I thank you all posters for so many pictures. ive been the shittiest OP for never delivered anything to the table.

Might gonna try today when hiking along the villages. but ive already shared my many many old pictures. so gonna try something new!

Skill level is the smallest bi factor!
this is NOT a competition!

just a small motivating way to go outside/ inside and take picture to learning something new.

As bob ross said it best "happy accidents"
go and catch something beauty with that camera of yours!

again i can only give my deepest apologies for not shared nor even taking a single photo.

You seem unhappy about photography.  I'm sorry.

Hi, Moony!

It was a good thread.  I used to do lots of photography, and I've been slaking.  Reminds me I need to regain my discipline, or at least try.


I mean, not like I use my camera for much other than taking pics of sketches so I can work on them on my computer. Otherwise I would lov to add something in here.
