Photography, Anyone?

A Hole in Nature, originally uploaded by jeffclow.

“Back in April this incredible barking tree frog appeared magically in our canna gardens and I took over 300 shots of him during a one hour shoot.”

I am just thinking aloud whether anyone out there is interested in Photography and would like to meet like-minded people. With blogging, photography is the complementary skill that will enhance your blog entry. And a good picture(s) would definitely save the day when blog block hits! So, what not start a club and have fun at the same time. It can be in the form of an informal grouping with just each other contact and one or two coordinators.

I had text Leonard yesterday on this idea of forming a Photography Club and we can have shoot outing and then blog about it. He is for it and thinking of roping in Mike Chua, another photo buff, to join this club. Beside sharing idea about the latest camera technology, good shooting place, software and photography techniques we can also have interesting tag like the most interesting pic of your town, office, friends etc where we can showcase our photoessay skill and interesting pic in your archive.

As i said this is just an informal grouping of photography hobbyist, let us know if you are interested so we can inform you of any activities that maybe of interest to you. I would like to invite comments to this new idea. Flood my comment box with your views and i am sure i will get back to you.

    Oh man. I would really love to be able to dabble in one of my favorite hobbies of photography again. Took tons of photos when i was a teenager. Spent lots of money to buy the gear and to develop the photographs. But for now, i’m in a financial position unsuitable to do just that :p Not unless you guys don’t mind lending me a spare camera. Ha, ha, ha…! 😀 I would have to find the time too to meet up with you guys in capturing some lovely shots 🙂

    4f: i got a spare Canon A80 if you dont mind. How about a trip to the revamped Botanical Garden on one of this beautiful Sunday?

  14. titoki said,

    4f: phone?

  16. Simple American said,

    Oops. Fun. What was I thinking?

    Hey, is there any minimum age for the photography club? Maybe my brother will be interested. He is into photography now. Check out his photoblog…http://shibinshibin.blogspot.com

    4f: tenkiu for dropping by! there is no age, gender or race requirement. all needed is a interest in photography!

    i wish i can join the club too coz i just bought my ixus80s but i am too far away to join the activities. Nevertheless, i will take some nice pics of South Africa on my side to share.
    Cheers!

    4f: we look forward to your beautiful pic of SA!
