      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

First shots

Recommended Posts

First pictures with the new camera. I have lots to learn so C&C always welcome with any of my pictures. There wasn't much moving today with the cold and wind blowing. The squirrels wouldn't even pose for a photo. The one good thing was the geese were flying slower for me.

Nice shots!, I also just got a new camera for my birthday, nothing special but I'm stoked (fugi fine pix s1000), now if I could just learn how to use it properly hehe.

I would love to learn how to snap pics of birds but never had any luck, Have fun with your new toy and I will keep my eye open for new pics from you.

Nice shots Nymph. That first is stellar! The second one is a little soft probably because your focus was locked on something other that a bird. Probably the feeder. My suggestion would be to lock your focus on a bird by holding down your shutter button half way and put your active target on the bird. Then keep the button pressed half way and recompose your shot and complete the shutter release.

Good stuff tho! Fun isn't it!!!

Thanks Mike. I did a little work with them. The Goldfinch shot was a bit difficult for me at the time. The feeder was swinging in the wind and I wasn't holding the shutter button down and holding it.

I like what you did on those. That first shot is really great with that crop. I love it. The second is much sharper now and the crop also helped it.

If you're not familiar we have a photography club in Hutch. Starting in January we meet on the 3rd Wednesday in the Library basement. This month will be on the 4th Tuesday in the same place.

Think about it. We have a lot of fun!
