    OT - Photography 101?

    So there's obviously a lot of people into photography here. There have been several threads in this forum on photography related questions, like 'how-tos' or 'which camera to get'. There have also been the occasional thread pointing out good deals.

    I noticed that there's a forum for video, but not photography. I'm thinking it might be a good idea to have one here at MTBR. A place where all things photography can be discussed and where pictures can be shared (mtb or otherwise). Of course, Turner pics would still be posted in the Turner forum, but could also be x-posted to/from the photography forum where more people might see them.

    This would be the place to ask those 'how to', 'which camera', 'where to buy', 'what software' and of course, Photoshop.

    If you think this is a good idea, say so, and maybe we can get the powers-that-be make it happen.

    PhotographyReview.com is run by the same people that run MTBR.com. Plus if you are looking for biking pictures over there just look up photo-john.

    I think John would be kinda bummed if MTBR added a photo forum as it would take people away from his site. I'll ask about adding a link to the forum list like the one for cyclocross that takes you to RBR.

    Ahhhh. I wasn't aware of that.

    Never mind then. I'll have to check that place out.
