    If you are like me you will enjoy photography whilst on your camping travels. Motorhomefacts run a successful competition that gets quite a few entries and is very popular.

    Shall we have one here next year?

    A great idea Jim apart from two minor points......

    1) I am crap at photography

    2) I never get the time to go on any Motorhome travels

    I was thinking of appointing a panel of around 6, who would choose say 20 or 40 "finalists/photos" and then just have the members vote on those. It would be simpler this way. and rather than a round a month we could just have a competition twice a year.

    I didn't look at the competion on motorhomefacts this year, but I thought last year there were just too many entries, and wading through them all was difficult, which meant the first 20 got votes but the others didn't as I lost interest whilst using a slow Welsh narrowband connection.

    What do you guys think? Artona is here, he runs the Competition on motorhomefacts, what you you think Stewart?

    Great idea I'll definately take part I'm crap at photography but love it and am thinking about doing a night school course at the local college.

    I bought a new Nikon SLR for our Thailand trip and the quality is fantastic just need a decent eye in the driving seat now.

    I know its been done on the other side but it might be a good idea to hold a photogaphic meet. Perhaps one of the more experienced photographers among us could instruct all of us budding David Baileys into the correct usage of our cameras.

    I would be intrested in giving it a go. Never tried on facts but it all seemed very serious on there and not for an amature like me.

    Great idea Brisey. The meet you talk about though was very much biassed towards the use of Photo Shop software and took up most of the time. Myself and another member left during that part because we were bored with it and started fixing a few problems with his MH :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    I would certainly be up for a photographic meet "providing" the main topic was camera use and how to take a picture, I am not big on software photography ::bigsmile: Maybe Dave 656 could be roped in, he is a fantastic photographer, with lots of experience too.......
