Welcome to Shoot & Tell Robert, Izrael, Magwagwa Mpho Juda, Sajjad Ahemd, Ina and Eva20yrs Welcome back to S&T Mimi’s Mum And cheers for Eva W., Thomas and Sami who have started their second album
New members, please let us know with what name you wish us to call you. We would like to be informal here and use only first names. And since we already have one Eva, we need to start using initials for Eva W. and for Eva20yrs Then we would like to remind you all about our rules. We have noticed many of our new members do not have EXIF date displayed. Therefore we have to ask you to add the exact date when picture taken into description area. Moreover, some of you do not have the month tag mm/yyyy at all or tags are used incorrectly. Please do read our rules once again. Using dates and tags are all explained there.
Finally we ask you to notice there are new albums for some of our active members. This is because updating albums after 500 pictures becomes either impossible or at least very difficult. So, after 500 pictures everyone are allowed to start a new album.
Call for July 2012 exhibition
Pick out the best photo of July from your own album and send the link in a PM to shoottell.
For July exhibition we would like to have the links by the end of July 31st at the latest. It will take a few days to put this together, so the exhibition will open the door around the 3rd of August 2012.
We hope you all will join in and send your best of the month that you would like to show a bit extra. If you find it difficult to decide what is your best picture of the month, then let moderators to decide! We hope to see photos from all of us!
