PhotoActive is experimenting with the photo-sharing website Flickr.
I keep getting asked by photographers who come on my photography holidays and courses if there is any way to share their pictures with the other members of the group when they get home.
So, I’ve looked at a few ways to do this and think Flickr might be the answer – as a lot of people already have a Flickr account.
To start the ball rolling, I’ve set up a Flickr group for all our friends who enjoyed a photography holiday with us last year in 2010.
I’ve already put a selection of pictures in the group, but that’s not really what this is about. I want this to be a place for you to share your best (or worst!) pictures you took on the photography holiday.
It should help bring back many happy memories and of course, being Flickr, we can all comment on each other’s pictures to share some expertise.
To add your pictures into the 2010 PhotoActive photography holiday group you will already need to be a member of Flickr I’m afraid – but the basic account is free and it’s a great way to share your photos.
If you are a Flickr member go to the group
www.flickr.com/groups/photoactive-holidays-2010 ask to join us, then add your favourite pictures from the photography holiday. And don’t forget to leave a comment on other people’s pictures or start a group discussion.
As I said, we’re just dipping our toe into the Flickr world at the moment but if it proves popular we’ve got some plans to really make the most if it in the future.
If you have any suggestions please drop us a line.
