Gidday again to another little ‘Mad Moment’
Photography can be a daunting subject to learn, especially for those at the very beginning of the learning curve. Apertures, f-stops, depth of field, leading lines, negative space, ISO, modes, poses, panning, HDR, it just goes on and on. It can get a little frustrating at times I know.
But Photography.ca is about making learning easier, and, more importantly to me, making it more fun also! I don’t do too many things that I don’t find fun. And if it wasn’t fun at Photography.ca … I wouldn’t ‘do’ that either! If you’ve been listening to Marko’s podcasts then you’ll agree that they have a flavour, a feel, an energy, that just screams out “relax … sit down … enjoy! Eat me out of house and home just don’t kick my dog!!”‚ This is something I find lacking in most other podcasts on photography. I don’t fall asleep listening to Marko!
But are the forums here the same as most forums? Or do they also have a life of their own?
So many forums are uptight and so proper that you are afraid to slide into its cyber-lounge and kick your shoes off for fear of some forum cop running over, beating you with his forum truncheon, and reading you some forum riot act!
Well … polish up your funny bones, rub some moisturizer into your smiley muscles, and pull out your sense of‚ humour and stroke it awhile, cause here at Photography.ca we encourage some levity and joy. All we ask is that our members show respect to each other where appropriate and don’t stifle someone’s thread with jokes if they haven’t yet got the answers they seek.
So … Fun with Photography. There’s many ways to do this and, of course, these ways can vary person to person.
My ‘Mad Moment’ today will focus on simply looking for the levity in your photos and sharing those. You may have a photo that doesn’t really come up to any great technical level but it certainly has an amusement value.
The following thread links will show what I like to do with photos like this. Enjoy and we hope to see you join in and learn with us.
Does my ass look big to you?
