I’m introducing a brand new feature on the site today, The Outdoor Photography Forum.
It’s a place for outdoor photographers, pro and amateur alike, to talk shop and discuss technique, ask questions, review and recommend gear and share knowledge about the creativity, craft and business of outdoor photography.
It’s a place where you can find out what camera, tripods, bags, software and computer gear other photographers are using, share tips and creative ideas and hear about ways that others shooters are making imagery or how they’re navigating the photo industry and making money with their photography.
You can also share your own images on the site. Whether you shoot nature, travel, sports and action, landscapes, people, events or portraits, the forum is a place where you can show off your outdoor imagery, ask for comments and critiques, get feedback or just display your photos for others to see.
The Outdoor Photography Forum is a place where you can learn and be part of a community of other photographers. Of course, we have to build it first. Being a brand new forum, the walls are a little bit bare right now. I need your help to get this thing going, so head on over to the message board, join the forum and post a topic. Ask a question, share a tip, post a quick review of a piece of gear that you use or share a recent image. Write anything that’s related to outdoor photography. Be brave. Be one of the first ones to post.
Also, let other photographers know about the site. Share, Tweet and Digg it. Post a link on your Facebook Page. With some effort and social networking, we can turn this forum into a great resource for us as outdoor image makers. I look forward to seeing it grow.
