There’s a new app for iphones (and I guess the new ipod touch with the camera) that allows you to instantly share your photos with others as well as applying some interestinf filters for different moods. Somehow a cross between Twitter, Flickr and the many applications that just allow you to upload to facebook and flickr. There’s a bunch of guys on the talkphotography forums all signed up who have now become a new circle of ‘friends’ and we’re all sharing photos that probably wouldn’t have really left iPhoto for anything more than a brief look.
If you’ve got an iPhone, give it a go, it’s free (and my username is davefrost) especially if, like me, you haven’t had the time to get out on any shoots with a larger camera.
The main reason for posting this is to try and get some discussion going in one of the Flickr Groups I belong to. It’s the usual thing, 1000 member, all shy except for when posting photos.
So, with the Group Owners permission, I’ve started a monthly challenge with the first theme being Romance. If you have a Flickr Account, and you take photos, then please go ahead and Join the Cool Britannia Group and enter the comp. there’s no Prizes, it’s just for fun but it may help improve your skills by setting you a challenge that’s outside your usual comfort zone. As far as I can tell, despite being a group called Cool Britannia, there are no rule on membership for those of you that aren’t sure where Britain is. The themes transcend the general ethos of the group in that it doesn’t have to be a British Romance (in which case two chairs with reserved signs on would work quite well). The only things I would ask
is that if you do decide to enter, please try and have a look at the discussion for the monthly theme and contribute to that as well
You come back at the end of the month and Vote on the entries – Without Votes there’s no winner !!

Inspiration, or something to avoid? You decide.
Blimey, another month passed already.¬† Just a quick one today to remind everyone (or to let everyone know) that the 20th Edition of the PhotographyBB magazine was released yesterday.¬† Dave Seram, the editor, and founder of PhotographyBB said today;
‚ÄúThis theme of this month‚Äôs edition is ‚ÄòIt‚Äôs Processing Time.‚Äô Often we find ourselves with a large collection of images gathering digital dust on our harddrives as they remain in their un-processed state. This month we‚Äôre looking at using all the tools including Photoshop, Photomerge, ACR, and even Adobe After Effects in a series of processing related articles. We‚Äôll be showing you how to remove people from an image easily without having to use the clone tool, as well as some other exciting stuff!‚Äù
The magazine is free to download from the website HERE
PhotographyBB was founded in Oct, 2006, and is a division of PowerButton Central (2004).
