Welcome to a new small corner of the ATS Message Board, the photography and video forum!

In 2001, the ATS started a mailing list on yahoo groups, and in those days, most hobbyists were on dial up or at a public library. Anything shared was done via text, often with many gripes if someone did not delete the replies as it took so long to download even a single post!

Now in 2009, we can access the internet for free, and many of us have connections which can exceed many megabytes per second. With this technology, our hobby, or at least how our hobby is communicated about has changed, referring to high quality photography and video.
The purpose of this forum is not to replace any portion of the other ATS forums, including the sharing of images or videos in which questions may arise. The purpose of this forum is to supplement the knowledge and discussion of how to get better images, including link sharing, equipment suggestions and tips. The hope is that by having a separate forum on photography and video we can help teach those who need the help to communicate better in those media without distracting from the discussions and educational focus of the other forums.

This new area is also a great place to show off images and videos. If a discussion arises outside of the mechanics of the images, then a moderator will simply duplicate the thread in the appropriate forum so that the discussion can continue in an educational way.

We at the ATS, are not trying to duplicate any true photography forum, but stream line discussions and education.
