      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Evening sports lighting

Recommended Posts

With all the great shots posted lately with some beautiful and dramatic lighting I thought I would share a few from some recent sports work.

One of my favorite things to shoot is baseball or softball on a summer evening. The warm lighting and backlight situations created by backgrounds and dust can make for some nice shots.

These are by no means great sports shots showing peak action but illustrate some lighting possibilities to think about for the next time you are capturing your kids, grand kids, friends kids, etc. in their sporting events. Try thinking outside the box a bit and look for something different than a stock action shot, it can be real fun with unexpected results.

1. ISO 800, f2.8, 1/1250s with +2/3 EC

#2 ISO 800, f2.8, 1/1250s with +2/3 EC

#3 ISO 500, f2.8, 1/6400s with +1/3 EC

#4 The background is what makes this photo work for me sunlight on the background trees. A sportrait type of shot.

ISO 640, f2.8, 1/1250s

Care to guess on this one? That game the sun seemed to have an effect on more than a couple of plays.

LOL @ Dan!!! Thanks!!! I love the look on the second dudes face.. Like ""WHAT are you doing?"

the second shot he has a pretty good lean going. My guess is he may have made the catch but fell over backwards shortly after. Either that or he got a really bad heal hop out of the glove!

All great shots, as usual Dan. Lighting does so much to add to a photo - not only for exposure's sake, but to set a tempo and emotion for it. The backlighting in the first two would normally be a couple that would go into the trash bin, but it does add an element of, for lack of a better word, ethereal-ness to the photo.
