Not wanting to miss any posts from the 'Photographer's Notebook', is there a way that I can subscribe to a user's post just like I can with a thread? Thanks
I don't know if that will be available in the new software, but what you could do is click on the user's name or avatar, go to their profile, and find a link to "more posts by this user" or something like that, and bookmark it.
I think this is a very nice thing you're doing, sharing your experiences.
Also, I find myself agreeing with you about great photos. The message is clear, the photo is a chapter all its own. Recently browsing a library book of great news photos, that was the very thing that jumped out at me on the best of the best.
I'm a bit of a re-entry photographer myself, picking up my neglected cameras again when I needed to illustrate a book I'd written. The book is done, well illustrated, and I haven't put the cameras away yet. On the contrary, in my photographic rebirth I've picked up some of the MF cameras I pined after 25 years ago as an amatuer, learned B/W development, learned Photoshop, and purchased a Widelux (35mm version) for panos. Have even experimented with splicing 2-3 Widelux photos together in Photoshop, for 180d or more views. Composition is more difficult the farther you go with that idea, though.
I'll try to follow along on this thread. I probably won't comment much, as my eyes and ears work better than my mouth. But I'll be watching... Thanks for your time and wisdom.
