I have joined. I need something new to give a try - I just need to know one thing, and it might be a stupid question, what is the definition of "close up" ? Looking forward to it.

Oh, one more thing, do uploads have to be done by the end of June or do all crits have to be done by then? H

Seems like Ade is in charge Smile

I presume we upload in normal gallery, but use the meeting link in the upload page to relate it to that group. Also never been to an official meet since this feature was added.

hey - Nick chose "macro" yesterday Wink

Well out of my comfort zone, though I do have the lensbaby close-up filter kit, so expect a blurry wonder from me!

I guess the definition would be reasonably broad to allow for personal interpretation - maybe it's a little insect, or a flower stamen, or an intimate portrait, a coin, or pretty much anything where you have taken a shot from close up, or at least closer than the norm.

To enter a shot into a meeting, you'll find there's a box when you upload a shot which is called

Link to Meetings:


There's a drop down list with all the meetings you are a member of - you just select the meeting/group you are a part of and then your photo will appear in the meeting page.

If you've never joined a meeting, you will have never seen the dropdown - so first thing is to join one, then you can check this out by "Editing" an old post - click edit and in the form below the shot, you'll see "Link to Meetings:" lower down.

Hector, you have to go and take new shots and challenge yourself, not just upload shots already taken.

still got no idea what to do for this "closeup" thing... not me at all, but that's the whole idea I guess
