Hi all,

So first things first, my name is Ferrão, i’m from Portgal and i love photography.
I studied photography some years ago but the market on Portugal is very slim, so i ended up doing something else i love, mechanical and machine engeneering.
Still, photography is part of my life, and i descovered PhotoBlog a while ago and decided to join you guys and be part of this comunity. (sorry for my english) :slight_smile:

oh and hello too to @russsmith @peterphotowalks and all of you.

Cumps

Hi, I am Varsha from India. I am an architect by profession. I love to travel & experience new things. I take photos of anything that interests me. I stumbled onto this platform when I was looking for a cool place to share my outlook on topics. I find this a very diverse community with lots of positivity; there are people here with unique perspectives & distinctive individualities. Want to improve my photography, share my stories & come across interesting individuals!

Any tips on basic post-processing? Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:


(Piotr Matura) #380

Hello Varsha! Welcome and enjoy your “stay” here. I joined PhotoBlog just recently and already feel that community is great and diverse, with so many people to be inspired by or to learn from. I think you will feel the same :slight_smile:
I don’t have any tips about post processing, because I also need to learn about it, but there are some interesting articles in the “Learn” section of PhotoBlog: https://www.photoblog.com/learn/ :wink:


(João Ferrão) #381

Welcome @varsha.

I joined this comunity a few days ago and i already can tell its a excelente one.

On post Processing tutorials or tips nothing beats experimentation. Post processing and protoghraphy always have a lot of your personality on them, so experiment and see what works for you. And YouTube and photograpgy magazines have a lot of information. If you use lightroom, the latest version as lots of tutorials. :wink:

Keep shotting and experimenting, cheers

Hello, PhotoBlog!

I joined a while ago but I don’t think I ever did the formal intro thing… so here goes!

I have been shooting since I was a wee nipper, started with an old 120 Box Camera that my great-grandparents had… then on through a 110 and eventually on to my first SLR - a Pentax K1000… which I still have. Now I primarily shoot digital - though did pull out the old K1000 and my father-in-law’s Exakta VX last year to shoot and develop a little b/w film! My current digital kit: K7, K3, K3ii & Couple of Flash units & 18-55, 55-300, 100 2.8 Macro, 18-135, 150-450, and 70-200 2.8 | All are Pentax except the 70-200 is Tamron. I frequently post process in b/w - I’m just still drawn to b/w for many reasons. If I shoot people then I prefer candids - not so much with the posed portraits… my go to lens is my 55-300 for almost everything… but I also love the 100 because it lets me catch those beautiful candid portraits because I can be far enough away to not distract the subject… and the 100 is obviously also great for flowers! I shoot primarily nature - flowers, wildlife - from land but also love shooting from my kayak and built a custom rig to carry three cameras safely while in the kayak… but also location shoots and events, and of course my son… whenever I can keep up with him!
