    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.

    Hi I am Brynja, living in Iceland. I have been taken photos, mostly landscapes and nature, for some years on point and shoot cameras. But in 2012 I bought an old Canon EOS 30 D and started to use manual mode and I enjoy that much better, but I have still a lot to learn in using that mode. I found CiC on my search for tutorials on the web and I look forward to join the group.

    Hello Brynja, and welcome to the CiC forum. Thank you for joining. I hope you find it useful and enjoyable.

    By the way - 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.

    I hope that being part of CiC helps you to do that, Carol.

    Thank you for deciding to join this forum. The idea behind the site is so that we can all learn from each other. So, there's no such thing as a dumb question on here and i hope you'll find there will always be lots of people ready, willing and able to answer any questions you may have.

    If you ever need any help in getting images posted into your message, then please do read the helpful guide that walks you through how to do it. Click HERE to read the thread.

    Something else you might find useful. Sometimes people are not sure about asking for comments and criticism on their images. This thread gives you some helpful advice and guidance about how to get the best feedback from fellow members.

    Re: NEW MEMBER? please introduce yourself here

    I love photographing fashion and beauty. From studio and location shoots to behind the scenes reportage, I am fascinated with our quest for perfection and the roads that lead to it.
    On the other hand, I love documenting the world around me, with all it's "imperfections". Balancing the grit and the glam keeps me grounded in the present. I must admit, I get off on capturing those decisive moments and sharing them with the world.
    That's truly why I do this. It feels so good!

    I share my San Rafael studio with Rodney, my invisible gold fish, and a very thirsty houseplant
    named Gunther. Together, we form "Pete's Rod and Gun Club" Yes... I just said that!

    I take my work very seriously. The rest, not so much...

    Hello Pete, and welcome to our community. I don't think we have too many fashion photographers around here, so I am looking forward to seeing some of your images. Lucky you, living in the Bay area - I think San Francisco is my favourite city

    Could could do me a favour, and add your location to your settings, and perhaps Pete as your "real name". That way they will appear alongside all your posts - we are a friendly bunch and it's nice to know where everyone is in the world.

    Hello all, I am Steven and live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
    Two new members from the Bay area in less than an hour. Spooky!

    Hello Steven and welcome on board. If you want to learn about photography then you have come to the right place. Sounds like you have a wide range of interests, so when you are ready just ask away in the appropriate forum (just find the forum that seems best, we're not too fussy here about things like that).

    If you haven't already, do look at the tutorials on the site. They are excellent, especially for someone new to photography. Also, have a read of Colin's "school of portraiture", starting here: School of Portraiture - Links to Lessons 1 through 8

    Best regards,

    Dave

    Hello Geepin, and welcome to CiC. It would be nice to know a little bit more about you - perhaps you could update your profile as described here: Editing your profile..... This is a great place to share and learn.

    Other than that, I look forward to hearing more from you in the forums.

    Best regards,

    Dave

    Re: NEW MEMBER? please introduce yourself here

    Good evening, I'm Debsnaps and live in London near Kings Cross. I'm an amateur who particularly likes street photography in low light (dawn/dusk) but struggling to find my 'style'. I got fed up of carrying a big camera, all the kit, and deciding whether to take out my heavy camera bag or not. So, now using a Fuji Finepix X100 which fits into any bag I'm carrying and always to hand -- and takes great photos. Looking forward to being part of this community, getting feedback and learning some new tricks.
    Debsnaps.

    And I hope you enjoy being part of CiC and, indeed, are able to increase your photographic knowledge and skills.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I'd guess that Debsnaps is not your actual name. Therefore, 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.

    Great having you here.

    I think you will find that people on here are always very willing to help other people by offering advice, commenting on pictures and answering any questions that you may post. This is very much an online learning community and I hope you find it helpful.

    By the way - 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.

    Re: NEW MEMBER? please introduce yourself here

    Hi guys.
    Just been introduced to CIC by a friend. I was tired and jaded with posting pics in other forums and seeing dozens of viewing of them and "zero" comments. Love me, hate me, just don't ignore me.. (perhaps they were that bad..!)
    Scanning through here it seems there are a lot of creative people with excellent ideas. Looking forward to constructive crits.

    In the last couple of weeks I've switched from my old E500 Oly and lenses to a new D600 Nikon and wow, what a difference. I've been with Oly since about 1970 with a nice point and shoot film camera to the OM 1 and 2's. I loved the E500 (Old technology I know) but I didn't like the way they were going with their focus and cameras.

    I feel good about where I'm at with the D600, using their Nikor 18-35 for my real estate biz and I know it's not ideal but I love the Nikor 28-300 with VR as a walkabout.

    Looking forward to learning more and enjoying my hobby.

    Hello and welcome. Great to have you here.

    I know that sometimes, even on here, when the traffic is heavy, soem posts seem to get missed. But I don't think that's ever out of a desire to ignore someone.

    I'm very glad you have such discerning friends with obviously good taste! And I hope that the CiC forum lives up to expectations.

    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. Although I think your Username might be a clue?
