Intro
I suppose any newcomer and anyone else on Trek Earth could use some words on the experience of the present site member, just as much as we need notes to photos:). I have been a member for some time now- almost a year- and I have tried to be as consistent as possible about posting.
I came across the site while looking for some travel photos. First came the curiosity for THOSE interesting facts about different regions, countries, cultures as far as the Philippines or Morocco, and later for the technical side. I remember that in the first months on the site, I was totally addicted, I was viewing as many photos as possible, trying to make out terms like composition, DOF, and POV. I assume the best way to get the quickest and smartest answer for those terms is to make a Google search.

The idea of getting together people who share the hobby/profession of photography works brilliantly for trekkers. It changes your vision of the world, in a positive direction; at least that was the effect on me. I have made some good friends here and I have received some totally pertinent advice through critiques and workshops. But, as I said before, the best part is its influence on your perspective, because a photographer, to my mind, has to see and bring to the eyes of the beholder the most beautiful side of things and render that vision within a small frame.
I believe that there are only inexperienced and experienced photographers and my only advice is keep trying to get the best from what you have. No use giving up because you donít own a DSLR or some other brand camera. Or because you have some electric wires/dustbins or whatever in the frame and some don`t like that. I think `make-up` works better on Trek Lens - no offence, please. Most important is that you `feel` a good photo and real photographers are born with a special connection between their eyes and their hearts. Only between the latter two a really big disaster/miracle can happen. Now the only problem would be how we use our camera, how much we can `play` with the settings on the manual mode so that you can render your vision as pleasantly as possible. That is what you will hopefully learn hereÖif you persevere.


A nice view:):
