Smile Hello ! New to Forums & Posting so I have a question please . . .

Hi - I haven't joined any Forums before as I have been putting photos that I've taken onto pBase. Friends have said it is FUN to join a Forum to be able to "chat" about all aspects of one's photography and specific photos or equipment used . . . so here I am !

I am completely new to using a site where one "Posts" etc so I may not be aware of exactly how to use this site and all it's various sections but I am wondering if I can search the site for specific cameras' photos ?

Is it possible to use the search box to bring up photos from other D80 users for example ? I would love to be able to do that in order to be Inspired and Informed as to what lenses, settings etc. were used, as that is one of the ways I hope to learn and Advance with my photography with my new D80 ?

It would be great to "chat" with other D80 users to hear of their experiences with this camera and what lenses they use etc . . .

I am a full time wheelchair user predominantly house-bound (horrid term but it does express my practical situation !) so attending Classes or On Location courses etc is extremely difficult so I've come here for Inspiration !

Best wishes Jane - Whizziewheelz

Re: Hello ! New to Forums & Posting so I have a question please . . .

Welcome to Pixalo Jane

Our site has two sections, the forums and the galleries. Both have search facilities, but they are based around text in the forums and keywords in the galleries. If someone has included D80 in any text or keywords they have added to their images, you can find these, but if there is no D80 reference, the images will not be found.

The galleries are divided by subject, and the two competitions we run are down the page a little.

After a while you will know the members who have D80 cameras - Sotelo and Dutchie spring to mind, but I know there are others. I would not put too much emphasis on the camera as it may be fitted with a different lens to those you have, so therefore will not be representative of what you might expect to be able to get in terms of results. Markulous has posted great pictures taken with a cameraphone and there are also excellent pictures taken with compact cameras.

It is true to say that the lens will have a greater impact on results that the camera, but I don't think that the make and model of the camera is overly important.

As you say you are new to forum life, perhaps a quick look at our rules and guides will help, and there are some guides in that section too that will help you get the best from the site. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for replying Angela ! And thank you for such immediate practical advice ! I've been and looked and it looks really good for discussions. I have a Nikon 70-300 VR and it is being discussed there ! So many, many thanks for your welcome.

Best wishes - Jane (Digitalwheelei)

Re: Hello ! New to Forums & Posting so I have a question please . . .

Thank you for your welcome Graham.

Thank you too for such an informative reply ~ you've explained the Search facility brilliantly - what it can and can't do and how I will get to know various members who are interested in the same subjects.

Your reply has given me a lot of really practical, useful initial information about using the site. I shall have HOURS of fun clicking on the various links ! I can't wait to get clicking !

I really like the site's overall welcome about saying ALL camera users are welcome at whatever age and stage they are at - that does take away the ''fear" that one's own questions and comments and photos wouldn't be up to a certain standard.

I'm going to LIKE it here !

I see you are located in the UK too - I'm in the farthest East !

Best wishes - Jane (Digitalwheelie)

Re: Hello ! New to Forums & Posting so I have a question please . . .

We pride ourselves on being the friendliest Photographic forum on the net, and we welcome members of all abilities. Some of our members are just starting their photographic journey, and we also have some very experienced professional members, and everything in between. Everyone has something to offer the community and are always willing to give help and advice.

No one is particularly precious about camera makes, although naturally people will support their favourite brands. You'll see some good natured teasing from time to time too.

You will probably find some interesting discussions in the forums, and we also have a Tutorials forum and a Review Section where real people give real life experiences of different equipment.

Hello Angela - thank you for being the first to welcome me !

I DID reply to you as soon as I received your message but I think I must have done something wrong as nothing appeared beneath yours to me as with my reply to Graham did above, so I'm replying again in the hopes you get this one !

Thank you for including the link to the Reference Photos - that's really interesting stuff discussed in there. I really like what I see in all the different sections on the site and I'm sure I will be a daily visitor as I can see this could become Addictive !

Best wishes - Jane (Digitalwheelie)

Hello again - I have been clicking on all the various links to get a flavour of what each one has and again I notice just how welcoming and friendly everyone is. I'm glad to hear that no one is tooooo precious about their cameras and lenses and equipment and I do agree that a healthy dose of good natured teasing never hurt anyone as I never tease anyone unless I really like them !

I think the Tutorials will be just what I'm looking for ! I had a peep and the first one there is exactly what my next question to the Forum was going to be ! I have a few photographic reference books here at home but being able to ask about and discuss specific elements of Tutorials with others here is going to be brilliant ! Similarly under the Review Section.

Fabulous ! I'm so glad I joined !

Hi Jane - nice to have you here and I can only emphasise ( as a rank amatuer) there is so much to learn here and everyone is very generous with their knowledge and constructive comments. I'd be here more except for the whole going to work thing!!!
