    NEW MEMBER? Please Introduce Yourself Here

    Hello!

    We are very pleased you decided to join us.

    Why not take a few minutes to briefly introduce yourself as a new member, but please do not post images for comment in this thread - it's just for introductions. You are welcome to post one image to demonstrate your photography style.

    It can be confusing joining a new forum. The following information may help you in getting established here. We know you want to get started, but reading this will help you get started properly.

    POSTING IMAGES - For technical advice on posting photos, please read this excellent guide How can I post images here? please also see; How to Get Effective Feedback for your Posted Images

    VIEWING IMAGES - If you are looking for help on viewing images on this site then try here.

    YOUR WEBSITE - If you have your own photo website or Flickr page you may put a link to it in your forum signature (see mine below for example). You can also introduce other members to your site in This thread.

    LOCATION - Put yourself on our members map on Google. But please check the security aspects when you do this CiC Google map

    CONDUCT - The general emphasis here is on support and learning. To do that, we often give detailed criticism on shots, where people have asked for it. We always try to do that in a fair, polite, and balanced manner. We also have a lot of fun on here, making humorous comments with one another. But again, it's nearly always done in a friendly manner, softened with the use of smilies.

    If you follow the above guidelines you won't go far wrong. We rarely have a problem with things that are said on-line. However, the Admin/Mod group monitor all activity on this site, and any inappropriate comment will be removed or edited. We urge all new members to read the Code of Conduct FAQ.

    NAMES - It's more friendly if you put your first name in your profile so that it appears on your posts. Select 'forum action/edit profile' from the menu at the top of the page. 'Real name' is at the bottom of the page. We suggest that for security reasons you only use your first name.

    TUTORIALS - Try our famous tutorials, especially if you have a specific or general technical question. See the menu at the top of the page.

    POSTING - Just start a new thread to ask a new question/start a discussion/post your images, but please give some thought to starting it in the correct section. Or just reply to existing threads to join in with a discussion that is in progress. If you are doubtful about posting your work, then please read this How to Get Effective Feedback for your Posted Images The FAQ (on menu above) will give you general assistance if you have difficulty FAQ forum usage

    Still stuck? Don't worry, just send a PM (Personal Message) to one of the Admin/Mods. You can find them here Mods To get to this list normally, select 'quick links/view forum Moderators'. As you move your mouse over a name a 'PM' button will appear. Click it for the Mod you want and send your PM.

    Jose - It is a pleasure to welcome you to the CiC forum. I hope you do enjoy being involved and that it does help you to learn. I am sure your knowledge and experience will also be welcomed by others whop can learn from you.

    If you wish, you can go to Edit Profile and put in your location, so that it appears in the sidebar alongside your message, just like mine beside this message. Then everybody knows where everybody else is.

    Hello and welcome to the Cambridge in Colour forum. Your written English is easily understood.

    I hope you enjoy being a member of the forum and that being so does help you improve your photography.

    If it is possible to do so using characters from the Latin alphabet, you can, if you choose to do sol, enter your 'real name' into your profile so that it appears alongside all your posts to the forum. Go to Edit Profile (under 'Forum Actions' on the Menu Bar), or you can just press on 'Settings' on the menu bar right up at the top right of the window. Once there you can enter the name by which you wish to be addressed under 'Real Name'. You can also enter your location so that it does the same, just as in my details alongside this message. Then we all know where everyone is in the world.

    Vikalp - I see that someone has replied to your other thread, so I will leave it. There is no problem with it remaining there.

    But, via this thread, may I welcome you to the forum. Thank you for joining.

    I hope you find the forum both enjoyable and helpful. I hope you will find that people on here are always willing to help colleagues through offering advice and guidance and by sharing knowledge and experience. So, please do ask any photography-related questions that you may have. And, of course, I hope you will post some images for comment and critique.

    It's my pleasure to welcome you to the CiC forum. I hope you find that being involved is not only enjoyable, but helps you improve your photographic knowledge and skill.

    Hello, Skip. Great to have you here.

    First thing - So that you don't continue to get people asking you what your proper name is, because most us use that on here, you can go to Edit Profile (under 'Forum Actions' on the Menu Bar), or you can just press on 'Settings' on the menu bar right up at the top right of the window. Once there you can enter the name by which you wish to be addressed under 'Real Name'. Then it will appear underneath your Username in all your posts. You can also enter your location so that it does the same, just as in my details alongside this message. Then we all know where everyone is in the world.

    There area few folk on here who specialise in macro work. All of them will, I know, be happy to share knowledge, experience and skills with you to help learning. By the same token, your contributions will in turn help others. That's what this forum is all about.

    Hello! My name is Theresa and I am a grandmother who loves photography. I started late in 2009, but somehow feel that I have not really captured the essence of what I want to say with my pictures. I have read lots of information on the web and taken tons of pictures, but I really need someone to critique the pictures to help me become a better photographer. I appreciate your constructive criticism and look forward to exchanging photographic views with you.

    Theresa - It's great to have you here. Thanks for joining.

    And as for your images, then please do0 get posting. I think you'll find that, on here, people will work hard to give you the sort of constructive comments that will help you learn and improve. By the same token, if you see pictures by other people and want to ask something about how or why they did whatever it is they did, then just ask.
