Good Morning and Welcome! :)

I'd just like to start the ball rolling by introducing myself and giving a general idea of what I expect from this group.

My name is TJ Rampersaud and I'm from Guyana. I've been interested in photography since I was about 6 years old and this interest has only grown with time. I'm not a professional but I have picked up a lot of tricks along the way that I'd love to share and I'm open to learning from you and your experiences also.

I'd like for this group to focus on photography as it relates to empowerment and be a good place for us to constructively critique each other's works and help each other creat strong photographs.

If you know anyone who'd be interested, please feel free to send them the link - all are welcome!

Looking forward to some great interactions!


Photograph for this post: I selected a water lily as I find them amazing. These flowers equal the idea of "hope" to me because they can grow in the dirtiest waters and always appear so beautiful. There are so many of us who have raisen from a darkness and shine and so many who are working their ways up... HOPE!

TJ Hello

I've already joined the group. Looking forward to start the photo-sharing experience in here. Thanks for creating this group, I believe sometimes, an image is worth a thousand words!

Feel free to upload an image

Feel free to upload an image for our feedback or start a discussion (via the group journal) on any topic of interest!

I will be feeding posts regarding prizes, contests and calls for photography as a tool for social development.

Glad to be a part of this new group. Photography has been my passion for years. I've been photographing people and life's celebrations since 1992. I recently relocated to a small coastal city in northern Maine that is very close to Canada
I have been documenting the goings on and the people to get my work seen and in hopes to possibly start making some income from it as well. Being new to an area causes one the need to get out in the community and start shooting.
I would be happy to share few images I shot from various events since March when I arrived here.
The lotus flower image posted here is beautiful.

I'm still working around

I'm still working around World Pulse as it relates to photographs. You can create a new journal entry and attach the photographs to it. I'm not sure if we can attach pictures to our responses (as I'm responding to you now).

If you have them online somewhere, then maybe you can provide the link to the images? I'll check with someone I know from World Pulse and see how we can include pictures in our RESPONSE posts through the use of html.

I like photography and always considered myself a good photographer but I would really like to expand my horizons and learn a few tricks from professional and dedicated photographers. I am happy to be here and TJ what an awesome initiative and contribution.
A picture does tell a thousand words!

I'll share what I know :) and I invite you to do the same...

In addition, if you want you can upload an image you have and let us start some constructive analysis of it. If you don't feel comfortabel then you can start a post with a something you'd like to know OR just hang out for now :)

And it's about time that we start using photography as a medium to drive empowerment at World pulse

Great thing!
