News & Notes – 7/25/14

Here’s a few notes items of note to pass along:

New Captcha Security

When I took over the webmaster duties a few months ago  the ability to register on the site had been shut because it was being inundated with spam registrants. These registrants pose no danger to you but from an administrative perspective, it was rather annoying. So I have cleaned up the spam and added a Captcha security feature so that users can now register on the site. So if you sign in to the site, or register on the Member Forum, you may see something that says “Prove Your Human”. Below this statement you will see a simple addition or subtraction math problem where you have to enter a number to solve the problem before you can sign in. I understand that this is a bit of an inconvenience, but it does save me from a significant amount of administrative work. So thanks for your patience.

NebraskaLand Magazaine Photo Contest Winners Announced

You may remember that we had announced on a previous blog post that NebraskaLand magazine was holding a photo contest. I submitted a couple of entries and the photo below was selected for 1st place in the Landscape category. The photo was published in the August/September edition of the magazine which is a special collectors edition titled “Beautiful Nebraska”. It’s a great collection of pictures and is worth picking up. I just want to say that placing in this contest  is a direct result of all that I’ve learned from being in this club so thank you all for all you contribute.

Educational Video of the Week

Here’s a short video with some good tips on shooting landscapes.

I will be out of town on vacation next week so I may be a little slow in responding to e-mails. But please don’t hesitate to ask any questions or provide any feedback.

Thanks,
