Social Media

The Photo Section now has a presence on Facebook and Flickr!

 

Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/groups/pghphoto/

We have established a Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pghphoto/. We would like to encourage all the members of the Photo Club to join Facebook and the PghPhoto Group. This group is closed; open to only Photo Section members but can be viewed publicly. This Facebook group will create a collaborative space which we can use to connect with other club members outside of club meetings, to exchange tips and ideas, to show images, and to get better connected with each other. We can enhance the activities of the club year round using the Facebook group. In this group, any member can post events such photo outings and to get other members to join them. Members can also post photos with explanations about how it was taken or the post processing that was used. This will help us learn from each other. Members can also use the Facebook group to post ‘For Sale’ items, post photos for critiquing by other members or just to show their work.

If you are already a member of Facebook, joining is easy just search for ‘pghphoto’, open the group and click join.

 

Flickr

Flickr icon

We have created a Flickr group at https://www.flickr.com/groups/pghphoto/. It is free for individuals with up to 1TB of storage for your photos. We would like to encourage members to join Flickr and the PghPhoto Group in Flickr. This group is also closed; open to only Photo Section members but can be viewed publicly. As a member of the PghPhoto Flickr group, you may share a subset of these photos (approximately 5) in the PghPhoto Group Photo Pool. Flickr is replacing the member gallery on the old web site. The Flickr group gives each member complete control of the photos you want to share and allow you to change the shared photos at any time under your control. The Flickr group will be the public’s view of the work of club members and therefore should be representative of your better work.

Joining Flickr is easy. Click https://www.flickr.com/, click Signup and follow the instructions provided. Once you are a member, click here for PghPhoto group link and select ‘Join Group’.

Note: If you are a new user to Flickr, we recommend uploading a minimum of 5 photos to you account. Flickr needs to approve every new account. It takes 2-4 weeks for your account to be approved by the Flickr staff. We have no control over this. Once your account is approved you photos will be visible to the public.
 

What’s the difference?

We want to define the difference between our use of Facebook and Flickr. In Facebook, you may post photos you may need help with, event photos, or even behind the scenes photos. You can also post photos with a short explanation of the difficulty getting the image or a tip others will gain from. We encourage all members to collaborate on Facebook. Flickr is the club’s portfolio and representative of your better work.
