How to stay motivated?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:18:43 +0100

(image) Back to my southern basecamp looking through members images in our "Master your vision" galleries, something I seriously enjoy doing since it gives me a lot of good inspiration. I encourage you to do the same :)

Our Master your vision galleries contain a total of 18 main categories with everything from Astro, Glamour and Landscape to Travel, Underwater and Wildlife photography.




We have improvements for you

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:37:15 +0100

(image) Thanks to additional traveling this week, I am keeping this one "short and sweet".

We have some new articles that are due out next week, including another Mastering the Art of Photography, please stay tuned. If you still have not read the first three you might want to do that.




Is incorrect focus a deadly sin?

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 07:01:05 +0100

(image) Hope your photography is doing well, no matter outside temperatures and the weather conditions that you might experience at your location. I am packing up at my nordic getaway heading "down south" to continental Europe this week and expect some good shooting opportunities along the way. We have lovely foggy mornings with plenty of roe deer and the odd moose out browsing and I will for sure keep some of Ramón's (jrp) "photography sins" in mind while shooting.




Mastering photography (technique) vs. art

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 10:18:44 +0100

(image) Writing this week from my nordic getaway, pretty much smack on the 60th north latitude. I am heading out to the Baltic coast today for some landscape and bird shooting and reminded myself to pack enough rain covers and cleaning cloths for the gear.




Any reason going manual focus?

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 10:30:29 +0100

(image) Is there really any reason for going manual focus when our autofocus (AF) systems are just getting better and better?

Yes, maybe there is. In this weeks newsletter I am shortly looking into one good reason.




A Nikon D850 job - What keeps us motivated?

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 08:12:11 +0100

In this weeks newsletter we are looking into what members say about the Nikon D850 and what keeps us motivated when continuing on our quest to improve our photography.

European trip autumn 2018

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:57:56 +0100

(image) Are you interested in going for a week of shooting in Europe in the autumn of 2018?
Maybe combined with the largest imaging and photography exhibition there is, Photokina in Cologne, Germany which is taking place 26th-29th of September?




Open position: Writer

Why bother about mastering photography?

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 15:39:08 +0100

(image) This weeks newsletter is the weekend edition. That was not planned, but some network equipment at an Internet provider in Austria, where I am located right now, decided to give up and take a long, maybe well-earned rest. Next week is back to Thursdays.

Your complimentary eBook

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 04:16:57 +0100

Inspiration and mastering the art - We are back to weekly

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 13:23:24 +0100

(image) Inspiration, mastering the art of photography, professional tips and industrial news: The publishing of our weekly newsletter stopped mid July after we'd experienced some unplanned changes on the team. We are now getting back on track again and expect to be publishing weekly starting coming week.




Upload, share and enjoy - Now bigger than ever

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 12:33:16 +0100

(image) Starting today, you can upload large files in the forums and share with others. And we mean LARGE. The old limits on width, height and file size are no more.




We are advertising free

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:26:48 +0100

(image) We are going advertising free today. This means: No more advertising on the top or bottom of pages, in the articles or on our homepage.

The reason? The value of the advertising, for you as a member and for the Nikonians Community over all, is diminishing. Many of us are using ad blockers and if we do not, we hardly interact with the ads or view them.

We hope this change will further lead to a cleaner design and less clutter, making the Nikonians Community an even more enjoyable place to visit.

If you want to give us feedback on this, feel free to do that right in this thread.

Enjoy!

Advice & critique on your photographs?

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 16:03:49 +0100

(image) It is now easy for Nikonians members to ask for critique on their work. When you have uploaded an image in your galleries, just use the link in the bottom right corner, "Please give me critique on this image" to kick it off. Other members and the team will now have the chance to give you the constructive critique and advice you might need to further advance your skills.




Small changes are also important

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 13:18:25 +0100

(image) Thanks to all our supporters, members on Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships and members participating in our fundraising, we are able to continuously improve the usability of the community's site.


Two of the latest, albeit small, adjustments we have done to Nikonians.org are:


  • Now the "post message" window has a cancel button, discarding the message and taking you back to the former window when used.

  • When you are using auto-renewal of your membership, look under "Membership" tab in "My Profile" to see when the next payment is due, independent of the duration of the membership.
