The forum has had several discussions. Here is just a sample:
- There was a great and valuable discussion started by Malcolm Tibbetts on the importance of photography is showing your work. He discusses what he feels are the more important aspects to a good photo. There are also contributions from several members as well as a reminder that there are a couple of great tutorials on the website.
- Last month Malcolm Tibbetts shared a video on Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Numbers. Members Gary Clark and Dvid Grady shared plans for building your own Goden Ratio measuring device.
