Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you.

about 3 weeks back just before the major snow storm hit, someone dumped a gray kitty off.
It took a few days before i was able to grab her-him and bring it in the house. Once picked up- i discovered it as not a "Him" but a her and very PG.

Carried her into my office where i had it prep'd for her to stay. On the 9th, she delivered 5 solid gray kits the same color as she is.
They are growing like weeds- eyes are open and the bigger one is already playing with mom.
Here are just a few pictures i snapped of them.

Daddy was a tiger!

I love their subtle tiger stripes!

I had a female years ago who appeared to be solid black with a few white hairs under her chin. But when she parked herself in a warm sunny spot, you could see her tiger stripes

Thank you for being such a good foster mom to this lovely lady and her litter!

Please keep us posted on their progress!

She reminds me of a cat I had which was half Siamese. She was a little darker in the ears, paws, tail and face. These are where the Siamese points are. Her mother was a blue point. So her underfur was the color of the mother's body color. They thought the father was a black Persian. Had her for 7 years until she got hit by a car.

awe i am sorry that you lost your pet. I have a siamese - chubby as they come.

once the kits are weaned and adopted - i will have mom fixed and kept as an indoor pet.
Shes not the friendliest but after what shes been thru, i can't blame her. It will take a while for her to calm down.

I've known lots of cats, and I think their colors suggest their dispositions. Black ones tend to be outgoing and friendly and grey ones are more aloof. I had a very smart grey cat named Bat (because when he was a tiny kitten and I thought I'd lost him the first day, he turned out to be clinging to bricks inside the chimney) who, long story short, was savvy enough to remind me to give him his chemotherapy medication once when I forgot, shortly before his death. He found me in the house, tapped my foot, and led me to the cupboard where the odious pills were kept. He got them coated in butter, and I guess he needed his butter fix.

My best to this family of grey cats.

If I ever have a pet that I need to get rid of I will drop it on your door step. Very nice of you to take them in.

i have a tuxedo and shes sassy- and i have my cat that is shown in my deer photo and shes deep grey and white and no one wants to mess with her.
she had a vets appt. yesterday - they had to muzzle her and it took 2 vets to hold her down just to draw blood. she only weighs 8 lbs,but is she ever a feisty bugger.
each and everyone of them are so different, but we love them just the same.

I am still looking for the magnet thats drawing them here. This is the 2nd one someone dumped and as usual she was also PG. These people should not be allowed to own pets.
Their PG and their stressed after being dumped- Gray is/ was malnourished and losing her fur in the process. i feed her 5 cans of food a day to build her strength up and pray before long it grows back in.

Awwww!!! Thank you for taking her in and giving her and her precious babies a safe and warm home. Best wishes to all of them for safe and happy lives. Wish I were there to hug and cuddle them; guess I'll ask you to do it for me.
