Coming up with great nature photography is not an accident
There are some basics one must master but there’s no need to re-invent the wheel. There’s a lot of really neat and helpful things I’ve learned throughout my rather “checkered” career and I’m going to pass them on to you.
I’m setting up dedicated web pages on the Great Nature Photography website that cover a lot of things from the very simple basics like how to choose the right camera and the right film right up to the more advanced things like how to make your digital camera do what you want it to do without having to resort to using a sledge hammer to make it behave with respect.
By the way, one of the best digital camera tips I’ll ever give you is practice, practice, practice and then practice some more! You must try using all of your camera features at least once. Make sure you do this well in advance of photographing a vacation of other important event.)
How to take Great Nature Photography is a vibrant
How to take Great Nature Photography is a vibrant, living subject and there will never be an end of things to talk about. Since I’m a non-stop talker anyway, I’m going to ask you to regard this site as a ‘work-in-progress’. It’s going to be an extension of my hobby and really won’t ever be completely finished.
It’s not physically possible to reach all the people I want to by giving away a newsletter at local photo store counters. (It’s a funny thing but many months ago when I first considered doing a newsletter of some kind, I asked a couple of camera stores if they would put it on their counter. Most of them said “thanks but no thanks”, they were going to produce their own newsletter. To date, none of the stores I originally contacted ever has!)
Anyway, I really hate the thought of spending a ton of money for paper that will eventually end up in a landfill somewhere so, that’s why a website.
Obviously, not everybody is at the same level of know-how.
Some are just starting while others are well advanced. I’m creating pages on my Great Nature Photography site that I hope will appeal to a broad spectrum of amateur photographers. The more advanced people, for example, may not want to go through the ï¿½what-to-buyï¿½ stuff.
One thing I really hope will become a major highlight of my new website
One thing I really hope will become a major highlight of my new website will be the opportunity to ask questions. On the feedback page is a form that readers can fill in and ask questions. If I don’t know the answers, I’ll know where to find them. I’ll do my best to answer specific questions about photography in general or even about a specific piece of photographic equipment that you may be using or maybe even be just drooling over (like maybe Canon’s new 16.7mp SLR!).
As questions are asked and answered, a database of FAQ’s (or Frequently Asked Questions) will be created and will ultimately form an interesting part of the site.
