Hi Mods,

The Wildlife Photography
SANP Camera Club

Seems to be a bit of a grey area as to what should be discussed in each section?

For example:
Camera equipment is discussed in both.
As is comments on photos are discussed in both.

Thanks
Yoda

Hi yoda

You are correct. And it must be confusing.

Going back to the start of the camera club; the intention was to form a club what would hold informative discussions and perhaps meets too.

I will need to go back through the files to check, but going on my memory that was the intention.

:redface: not at the mo, still need to check the files.

But do you have a suggestion on how to run the club .... any ideas will be most welcome as it would be wonderful to build an active club on the forums.

DB,
Not to worry. Was just wondering.

To be honest, I would just merge the two Forums.
There seems to be a fair amount of corss over between the two at the moment. So one photography forum would be sufficient to cover all photography issues - hardware, help with images etc.

Thanks for the feedback, we do appreciate it. And unless something 'wow' will happen with the club in the near future, we will do as you suggested, and just merge the two :thumbs_up:

Is see the Birding sections are having some sort of clean up.
And threads are being allocated to specific sub-forums.

Is this going to happen with the photography too??

At this moment in time we are open to suggestions from anyone.

We could move the Photo Themes from WPE to the Camera club and leave the technical discussions about cameras and lenses in WPE?

These are your forums, so tell us what you think.

IMO,
The photography section would be for discussing equipment etc.

And the Camera Club would be more for discussing actual photos, a help section, how can I improve this photo, and the various themed threads ie the "3 in 1" etc.

My 2c anyway.

Perhaps rename Photography - Photographic Equipment. so there is no confusion between it and Camera Club?
Would presume that Camera Club would be open to submission of images from anywhere in Southern Africa and not just SANParks?

Thanks for the input guys, we are thinking along similar lines.

We are going to be tidying the two forums up over the coming weeks so it will be in state of flux while we do it, please bear with us, we'll get there.
