Notice Board

Just a quick administrative notice here – a bit of technical difficulty on incoming e-mails via the contact page caused us to lose some information that came in asking about joining the photowalk.  If you have tried to contact us via the “contact” tab since last weekend please send another e-mail with your information – we welcome all newcomers!

Notice Board

I stumbled upon a photo book bargain at Costco stores today that prompted me to let everyone know about not only the bargain available but a wonderful series of books.  Bryan Peterson has written several books that are a very easy and enjoyable read and full of inspiration and super photos to illustrate his teachings.  If you don’t have a Costco nearby look for them at your local library, bookstore, or one of the on-line book sellers.  At my local Costco they had Understanding Exposure, Understanding Shutter Speed, Learning to See Creatively, and Understanding Close Up Photography, each for about $10.00 off retail price.   His books are a great resource for anyone wanting to learn more about controlling their camera to get the shot they want.

I’ve added an update to the information originally posted about the Creative Live Fundamentals of Digital Photography Course. Please see new information in the original post, HERE.

Creative Live is offering a FREE 10-week on-line course called Fundamentals of Digital Photography, beginning on April 7. We have not taken any courses here before but thought we’d give it a try. If anyone is interested in learning or brushing up on the basics of digital photography and would like to join us, you can view the information and register HERE.

Edit: I’m told by a representative of Creative Live that this course will be equally suitable for users of point-and-shoot cameras and dSLRs. To quote, “John will be covering a wide range of photographic technology in the course but just as importantly he’ll be discussing the thought processes that go into taking good and interesting photos.” Also, Creative Live is only planning on offering the FREE live sessions once. And finally, the 10-week series will be available for download so that you can watch at your leisure, as many times as you like. The cost for these downloads will be posted next week along with download links. While the prices haven’t been announced yet, they usually sell for less than $150 with a 50% offer if purchased during the course.

Just a suggestion for those participating in the Blogging Groups; with a new group of visitors you may want to include a post introducing yourself with some brief info about the equipment you use, where you consider your skill level to be (beginner, advanced or somewhere in-between), your goals in participating in the blog, and what sort of feedback you’re looking for (ie: general comments about the image or more in-depth critical commentary about how you could improve the shot).  As an option, if you prefer to leave that info off your main blog you could add it to the “about me” tab and just welcome new visitors and direct them to the other tab.
