I am wondering if there would be any interest in discussing photography here. I was assuming maybe not, but then, I wouldn’t know until it was brought up. There are definitely photography forums that can be pointed to, but the ones I have visited, it seems that many times the motto is “Respect: What a concept!” so I wouldn’t feel so welcome there. But, fortunately, that is not the case here! It could be just sharing the interest, news, pics, equipment, etc.
Not something i actively do, but definitely open to discussions on anything here so long as people are nice to each other.
The inkscape mailing list was looking for active contributors, this year, although they use mattermost for their community.
Also the open-university does a course or two, but you’ll be using anything but f/loss, perhaps you could enquire there.
Would this be the same Open University that Onslow would watch?
I couldn’t find anything by searching “photography” in the subredit.
Are you looking for a technical discussion here or simply an opportunity for us to share our work. If the latter do you have any particular categories in mind. We have shared images before for example I shared a few of the sights I see travelling to work and others responded in kind.
Perhaps this would make an interesting competition. I’m not sure if we could pull together a prize but we may be able to to show our appreciation by way of a suitable title on the winners profile “Wildlife photographer extraordinare” for example.
Just wherever the subject takes one. What kit one has or wishes for. What technics used for composition. What news one finds exciting. Nostalgia over old things. Sharing of work. Anything along the lines that one would like to share or ask. If there is a desire for some kind of competition, why not? I was just exploring if the idea is appealing enough here for discussion.
I print photos to remember the happy hours.
Are you using a film camera or digital? I have both and still use my darkroom from time to time.
I’d recommend photo.net. In my experience they address the topics you outlined very well. There are over 40 forums. More importantly, the photography expertise routinely shared on that site is exceptional. The ratio of quality, intelligent and respectful posts to flaming idiots is much better than one might expect.
And there is more than just forums.
