Hello there. Umm... not really sure what to say. I am an amateur photographer, both mobile and traditional, and am looking to improve my work. I prefer working with nature and animals, though I work with people as well. I welcome any and all advice since I am really hoping to improve!

I have a friend who was on here for a while, though I was never told their handle, and they had nothing but good things to say about this community. I look forward to getting to know you all better!

Thank you so much! It already feels quite different from other photography groups I've joined. I will hopefully be uploading some images very soon, so I can start learning! Thank you so much again for the warm welcome! ^J^

Hi Mary. Lovely to have you here. I notice that you were having trouble posting and put out a cry for help in Chat. Here’s what I said:

Hi Mary. Have you found the answer? Why don’t you go into Forums and find a place that looks right, open Post a New Thread and upload a photo there.If it’s not in the right place one of us will move it and explain why. It won’t be a problem. The important thing is to start posting. :thumbs: We’ve all been there and will help all we can.

Whereabouts in the world are you residing at the moment?

Yes, thank you! I messed around a bit, and I think I’ve figured it out. Thank you for getting back to me though!

Currently I am in the great state of Texas.

Welcome to MobiTog, Mary. I think you'll enjoy it. It's not set up exactly like other places, so it does take some poking around to figure out what happens where. There's a help guide that may explain a few things: https://mobitog.com/index.php?help/

You'll find lots of activity in the weekly b/w and color challenges, which usually start on Sunday and end the following Saturday night. (Whoever's selected as the winner for one week becomes the judge for the next week.) The current MobiColour challenge (this week's theme: Hats) is here


and the current B/W challenge (never any theme) is here

Thank you for those links! I was wanting to submit to the black and white one.

And thank you for the guide. It’ll be a great help!

lisamjw Lisa is also from Texas, but I do know it’s a big state.:lol:
It really is. I’ve lived here all my life, and I haven’t seen half of it yet. The landscape is so varried that you’ll never run out of things to shoot.
In what part of Texas do you live, Mary? I currently live about an hour northwest of Houston. Before that I lived in The Woodlands and before that Houston (and before that Ohio and Kentucky).

Welcome to MobiTog Mary... so glad you joined us! You have most definitely come to the right place to meet new people, learn about mobile photography and hone your skills. :thumbs: Take a look around, maybe join a challenge or two, and feel free to ask us any questions - our MobiCommunity are a super friendly and helpful bunch of mobile photography addicts enthusiasts!! (as you can see already by the posts in this thread! :D )

Here's some information that might prove useful as you find your way around:

At the top right of the website you'll see a big question mark -->?<-- labeled Help - click on that any time and it will bring you to our detailed help section. You can also click this link: https://www.mobitog.com/index.php?help/

Visit our "How Do I..." forum, where you'll find all sorts of tips and tricks to help you find your way around more easily: How Do I...

The MobiTog Community is set out in four main areas or sections:

Community
Here we welcome everyone, post announcements and take in your suggestions and comments.

Image Sharing
Self-explanatory and broken down into sub-sections clearly named to make it easy to find a topic of your choice. It is here that you post your images.

Mobitography Discussion
For general conversations and discussions about all things mobile photography related.

Members Area
An exclusive MobiMembers-only section. Feel free to discuss things with other members - and find out about Top Secret stuff not for public consumption!

Important note: Please remember that only images originated on a mobile device (iOS or Android) can be posted to this community. No pictures created on a DSLR or compact camera are allowed.

Handy Tip: At the top of the site in the orange bar you'll see "New Posts", and clicking/tapping on it will take you to all the unread new posts that occurred since your last visit. Note: If there's just too many there to deal with, and you're really anal like me you can go up to the top and select "Mark Discussions Read" - and choose just a specific area to 'clear out', for example App Discussions, or choose all discussions which will clear everything and allow you to sort of 'start fresh'. That way the next time you go into New Posts, there will just be the most recent posts since you "erased" everything.

Also when you hover over your username in the very top right, you have an option to choose "Ignore New Posts", and select any forums/discussions that you DON'T want to show up.

We have lots of great challenges to help hone your skills and have loads of fun doing it, like Jilly's Black & White Challenge, and for the color-minded we have MobiColor, a fun group challenge Elements of Surprise (EOS), and a super interesting and fun challenge Time Stamp run by FundyBrian where everyone around the globe posts up an image on the same day and time. Check them out in our Competitions & Challenges forum!!

Lastly, if you have any questions on anything at all be sure to give us a shout out!
