The Old Ruminator

Well-known member
A great new part of the forum but the uptake so far seems a bit slow. ( Except from the usual serial splodger ). I presume that the old Photography Showcase is now closed to new entries thus removing the three upload limit. I like the star rating system and image metadata. Sadly there has been little feedback in the comments sections so far. Only my videos ( 4 ) to date which is unusual as they are so easy to do on the run with the TG camera. Three or four minutes is fine for an unedited clip which I upload to Flickr ( any longer tends to be tedious in uploading and viewing ). I am learning some basic video skills like slow and steady panning giving the camera time to focus. Usually I use the Skyray for lighting as the Scurion beam tends to be too tight. Its important to give good audio as well. Descriptive and even humerous. My videos usually seem to end as farce despite my goods intentions. Still that makes them just as watchable. Actually videos are easier to take than stills as there is no set up and you catch your characters unposed. Also no editing if done nicely .Worth a try folks but keep em tight.

Hi OR. Thanks for the comments. We had a review of the forum transition on Saturday and the Media section was discussed. We felt it needed some attention and improvement so we will get around to that soon.
In the meantime we'll unlock the old Photography Showcase thread to use as it was.
