This thread might not go well with some of you, it's going to sound a tad offensive, but before I go on, I'm just going to mention, as a disclaimer, that i'm not here to attack clubsnappers. In fact, i'm hoping to understand the culture of this forum and the people a little more.
I've been in this forum for some time already, and I post pictures occasionally, and sometimes comment on them. Very honestly, I'm a raw photographer - so perhaps some of the technicalities are not very apparent to me. I believe there are some of the same caliber as me, and of course a whole lot of you who are professionals. I notice how there are some clubsnappers trying to develop a photography style, and so they upload a photograph with an intention of receiving critique. In my opinion, I feel we shouldn't just focus on technique and the rules of photography, but also to be able to understand a person' behind the lens. I'm sure we all see things differently, so what I'd love to understand is, does this forum give space for the development of raw photography? To be very honest, I sometimes want to hear more in depth critique of a picture, apart from the deconstruction of the technique.
What do you think?
That being said, I feel really indebted to clubsnap becuase i've learnt alot from this information rich portal. And i'm encouraged by the passion of you photographers and your willingness to share ideas. More than being photographers, i'm sure you guys are also artists and sportsmen
keep shooting, peeps!
