I am not too sure about the Electronic Post processing, though.. There are so many programs out there and it's a wast world (we are doing photoshop in college) but that's something for a later stage, I guess...

I was thinking of a two prong approach. 1) Use "generic" terms like "next look for a Crop or Cut function". 2) Use examples from a freeware editor like Photofiltre that is powerful, has multi-lingual support, and all the tools you need. I think there's enough demand for something like this that we'll be asked for it at some point (especially how to remove redeye). And I don't think we should go too far with this section.

A question to the powers that be. Are we going to get a link to this on one of the main control screens ?

Is that me?? :) Not quite sure what you mean with main control screens, but once the photography guide has got some good content, it'd be a useful addition in terms of a link from several different spots. The TOOLS area for one, the photography Upload/Gallery page perhaps as a second, perhaps in the blog management area (needs photography to be added still anyway) and in the index page photography template (this is actually changing somewhat, but the idea'll stay the same). All in all, yes, if it starts generating some good tips and posts, then definitely it will be linked to.

I for one think it's a great idea and am happy to see so many enthusiastic responses (thanks Phil!!!).

hey mohd anuar,

your services and professionalism as a former newspaper photo-journalist and photo dept editor with Malaysia's leading English daily will surely be needed for TP to grow beyond...u will be able to provide ideas on finer points of photography as seen through the eyes of a photo-journalist!

What a great idea!
I don't mind piping up with anything I can help with. I'm doing a photography course at the mo so I'm quickly figuring out that I've been doing things very long for ages and I'm lucky I take any decent photos ever!

Good photography comes in two parts: Technique and Composition.
The first one can be learned, and appears to be what most posts have so far been about.
The second can be encouraged and prompted, but there is no substitute for practise, yet practise will not guarantee results if you don't have an eye for a picture - but it will definitely increase your chances.
I'm a bit of an idealist and I like to think that great photographs come from the same place as great music, paintings, writing etc. Somewhere within, and not from a textbook.
Remember, good photography is as much about the camera as good writing is about the word processor.;)
