...Even Michael doesn't get it right all of the time. Just look at the videos with him and Jeff "sparring" with each other...

Maybe Jeff was wrong...

Could I be the "Ruler or Radiance"? Or even the "Lord of Illumination"?

I think that exchange just about sums up why this suggestion from Tony is an idea which is doomed to failure.

Nice one, Slobodan  Wink

It was worth putting the thought out there...

Sometimes reasonable ideas fail and sometimes the most counterintuitive ideas pass muster.
I will confess to being a "beginner" in the forum world, LuLu being the first, and so far only, forum to which I contribute.
I don't mind bouncing ideas off individuals here because, by and large, the LuLa community consists of individuals with massive experience and expertise in the art and science that comprises photography and fine art printing.
The reason I was attracted to LuLa was to learn - occasionally I can contribute, but much more frequently I learn.

Tony

I was once quite keen on the BJP site (British Journal of Photography) where I met several people with whom I still correspond, years later. The problem there was that the folks running it didn't really seem to spend any time policing it. I was less than enthusiastic about some of the foul-mouthed people that posted there, and nothing was done to make them polite and not abusive, and I mean truly abusive. In the end, I gave up and a fresh site was created by some of us old BJP members. Problem there, really, I think was one of critical mass and diversity. I think that the chat/forum part of the BJP site has now been closed down...

LuLa has one great advantage, as far as I can make out, and that's that it is run by people who know practical photography inside out. Also, it allows threads to develop without too much interference, and they are also allowed to expand beyond the basic premise of their foundation, often leading to humour, more unexpected information and the sense of a living organism.

I've looked at a few other places, but though they also seem to have some good people, there's just something here that's different in a manner that appeals to me. So, unless I get hoofed out, I hope to stay.

Tony,

At least the responses you got were friendly and somewhat humorous, which is much nicer, I think, than the "slash and burn" responses some folks get in other threads.

Eric and Rob

Thank you for the encouragement.

Luckily, while not completely bulletproof, I have not felt as though I have been attacked or anything.
I certainly will not be discouraged from contributing to the forum as and when I feel motivated.

You're kidding right?

Mike is a real good shooter (better than I am–although I get some odd stuff he doesn't get) but I know this "tech" stuff a bit better than Mike does (although he knows how to get his images to look the way he wants them to, which, in the grand scheme is all that matters to him).

"Master Of Light" tends (to my way of thinking) to be suggestive of certain genres more than others anyway.

I'm primarily a bird 'tog with a bit of sport chucked in for good measure, and although I'd like to think I get by pretty nicely in my bird photography, and I'm quite good at making the best use of the conditions I'm shooting in, I'm absolutely at the mercy of the moods of my subject matter and the weather, neither of which I have any control (and certainly no mastery) over.

Between the two of us, I think you speak for every man Jack of us! We might just like to think otherwise, but I believe you've pegged it. The secret is to claim the happy accident as our own!

I'd like to think there's occasionally a grain of truth in my ramblings!

Wink

Thing is, if I was a landscape 'tog, I'd be able to go out when the weather and the light were right for the image I had in mind (a landscape isn't likely to be there one day and gone the next): when I'm birding, I'm out when the birds are there (which is frequently during poor weather or in badly lit environments), and the sport photography happens whenever the sport happens.

Likewise if I lived in a studio, I'd get to choose the light I was working with.

Point being that I still reckon that "Master Of Light" is simply not an appropriate tag for some genres of photography.

"Some pretty fast reflexes you've got there" would suit a lot of what I do(!); "you must be good at getting close to birds" would work too!

Actually I'd quite like "Master Of Birdcraft" (even though I'm not that either!)

Dunno - seriously, the whole "Master Of..." thing seems a bit presumptuous and self-opinionated to me anyway.
