:new: A club just for photographers!!!
:new: Zoo-photographers   :new:
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you my new club, Zoo-photographers :Iconzoo-photographers:.
:sun:It is our mission to bring together all the beginner, amature, and professional photographers who have a passion for zoo photography. Unfortunately, many of us do not have the money or the time to go on a wild adventure safari; therefore, a zoo is the next best thing.

:bulletgreen:  You can submit up to 3 photos a week. And we will have special "Submit all you want" weekends, pre-planned by the staff.

We are new. So it is a work in progress :D We will be adding:
-a list of all members
-monthly competitions with fun little prizes
-a list of all the zoos in the world, and the photography advantages of the zoo
-weekly features
-Much more! I would love to hear your ideas.

Polaroid Shutting Down 2 Massachusetts Facilities
"Polaroid Corp., the Massachusetts company that gave the world instant film photography, is shutting down its film manufacturing lines in the state and abandoning the technology that made the company famous."
:iconequivoque:equivoque 71 85
The end of Polaroid film. The end of an art?
60 years have passed since a strange guy called Edwin Herbert Land started something that has changed the photography world, it was the first Polaroid istant camera. Since that day, thousands of kids, adults, photographers, artists and wannabe's had snapshotted the world, and now all that could be come to an end!
After 60 years the Polaroid Corp. is exiting the film business and closing plants in Massachusetts... no more istant cameras, no more istant films...
Does it also means no more istant photographers?
We don't believe that!
Thanks to these great guys the polaroid world will never die and will never be forgotten.

A little taxonomy for the day! The ladybugs that most of us are use to are the red, black spotted insects that you can easily see around your garden in the summer months. Here are some shots of these more common insects:

Some ladybugs are carnivores and can eat aphids and other ladybugs, some just eat fungi and plants.

Macro Photography - Detail not Visible to the Eye
Macro Photography - Show the Detail not Visible to the Eye
Approaching macro photography for the first time can be full of ugliness especially if your first attempts fail badly. Many beginners discover the Depth of Field (DoF) is very small, images are out of focus because the focus is critical in macro photography with the small DoF, Camera shake and subject movement (due to using longer shutter speeds to allow for small apertures and/or not using a sturdy tripod), increased noise (if you use a higher ISO to compensate for the small apertures needed), or badly composed photos. And this can get frustrating.
(the following was already covered in my first article Welcome to the
World of Macro
but here is a reminder)

Macro Photography requires special equipment which can get expensive, but so what we photographers like to spend money on equipment. Without some form of macro equipment you will not be able to

Macro Photography Gallery - The Changes
The Macro Gallery has now its own Gallery Director, me, who will take care of this tiny and delicate gallery.  Why did this gallery get it’s own GD ? Because it needs some love and some more attention and also a major clean-up.
What is new in the Macro Gallery ?
The Macro gallery will only be for real macro from now on. It did get a new description and hopefully anyone who submits there and who isn’t sure what macro is or if his/ her image belongs there, will read it .
The definition of macro is capturing an image of a subject the same size or larger than life size on the recording media, whether that be film or digital sensor size. For example if you photograph an insect that is 2 cm (3/4 inch) long, it's image will be 2 cm (3/4 inch)long on the film or digital sensor. The smaller the recording media the smaller the subject must be. Cropping an image does not make a close-up image a macr
