Welcome to the Photography Forums!
Wondering where to post? Follow these simple guidelines -
If you are new to the Photography forums, please stop by The Shutterbug Pub
and introduce yourself. If you have snapshots of the family, the dog, or anything else that you just want to share with us, the Pub is the place to post those images. Most days there is also a Shutterbug Pub Daily
thread where we let each other know what's going on in our lives. The Pub is an informal place to just "hang out."
If you have questions about photography equipment, or the software that we use in processing our images, the Photo Equipment & Software
forum is what you are looking for. Whether it is advice on purchasing a new camera or lens, or if you think something is wrong with your camera and are looking for help, or if your image editing program just doesn't seem to be working right, try asking in this forum. There are lots of people with lots of experience, so you just might find the answer you need.
Are you looking for constructive criticism of your serious photographic work? The Darkroom
is the place for that. Images that you post in this forum receive comments on their technical and artistic merit and suggestions for ways that the image might have been improved. Please post only one or two images per thread so that a proper critique may be given. The images posted in this forum should receive only the kind of "processing" that may be done in a darkroom.
If you like to take your images to levels never possible in the darkroom, then the Digital Manipulation Discussions
forum is the place to be. Perhaps we can call this "extreme photography" - images that have been manipulated into works of art. You can choose to start your own "display" thread where other members will only view your images, or start a thread with an original image, and then your manipulated image, and let others play the original image, too. You can learn a lot this way, and have a bunch of fun doing it.
Those are the four sub-forums that make up the Photography forum here on WetCanvas! The main Photography forum, where this thread is posted, is only for informational threads, announcements and archived threads. Please post only in the sub-forums noted above, and not in this main forum.
If you get lost and need assistance, please feel free to send a private message to any Photography forum Guide or Moderator with your questions.
Thank you for visiting the Photography forums. We hope you stick around and join us in our photographic adventures.
