I just got off the phone with Ryan for our inaugural in person conversation. We've been relying on PMs and more recently the Google Group. I've also been responding to PMs from folks offering their support and committing to be involved.

Just to be clear, Ryan has the web design side of things well in hand, so no one from this thread need to worry about their lack of technical skills. I'm aware, of course, that we have quite a few folks who frequent this thread who DO have such skills... thank you Ram... but we need a different kind of

I guess one question would be cost. Domain names aren't free.

Also some hosts are easier to use then others. I am the webmaster for the farmers market's site, but it's a royal pain in the butt because I have to use Microsoft Expression Web which involves a lot of HTML. There are hosts like Square Space that makes the whole process relatively simple. How is nikonglass.com being set up?

That is a question Ryan would need to answer but I know the site is being hosted on a server at GoDaddy on which he has another website he created a few years ago. He has fronted the domain which as James noted, is licensed for five years. As Ryan describes how this is being set up it sounds quite simple and I doubt familiarity with HTML is required. More will be revealed in that regard.

With regard to costs associated, we'll certainly discuss that, perhaps in the form of donations if it becomes necessary. We tossed around the idea of have some gear available with the logo for folks who might want a coffee cup, tee shirt or baseball cap. But this doesn't look like a costly venture, nor do I believe our happy band of photographers will be overly intimidated by what they're volunteering to do...

But it is nice to know if HTML programming is required where we can find that help... You can do it on your lunch break... never after a bottle of beer however...

Mustn't forget a link to Ken Rockwell's website.

I was a graphic designer for 15 years, and just started two blogs (www.juicygarlic.com and www.thefreshpic.com). Kinda wish I had more time to post more content, but logo designs were done by me. I used a wordpress template to piece it together - never used wordpress before, so that was a fun and fast learning experience in one week.

Lemme know what I can do to help out.

Hey guys!

As Curtis said I think most of the web design stuff will be figured out from my end. It is using wordpress as the base. I am working on making at easy as possible for the few that choose to help out to add lenses to the database as easy as possible. There will be a simple guide on how to do this that will require no coding experience. Once the lens is entered into the database then registered users can rate the lens and write a review.

There will be more sections then this, such as the blog and article section as Curtis mentioned where we can get nice articles going comparing all the 135s or how to ai a lense or so on.

As for hosting and domain. That bit has already been done. We will find some ways to get the hosting covered but right now it is on my VPS through godaddy that hosts a few other sites and bigger communities I started (some up to 45k page views a day).

This mainly spawned from my end as I am tired of going between 10 different pages for information and then forgetting which exact lense was better say of the 135s.

The goal would be to have all this information on these old gems stored in a nice slick database driven by us as a community. With new content driven by nice articles and blogs written by people from here that mainly get hard to go back to after a few weeks time.

I think people in this thread might interested in that I have listed my D700 in B&S board with matt type S focusing screen installed with f1.6 DOF capability. It will greatly improve your manual focusing experience with fast AIS glass. I prefer sell the body to someone value manual focusing, the benefit of matt screen is being able to see focus directly you can put your subject anywhere in the frame.

I will buy the same screen for my D810 as soon as it available.

Here are some images contribute

Leighton - that BW portrait is outstanding. I think the whole "less detail is better for portraits" only applies to women. For men, more detail is what you want for sure. Did you show it to him / send him a copy ? If I was him I'd love it, print it big and hang it on the wall.

Yesterday's macros from the garden - I was actually gardening but as that is when I see most of the bugs I decided to keep the camera handy.

Having decided that for most bugs 1:1 isn't sufficient (ie my 105/2.8+PN11= 1:1) I am now forcing myself to use the 105+PN11+PK11+PK12+PK13 all the time - hand held it makes rather a long combination but by attaching the PK tubes first I can then attach the flash bracket to the PN11 tripod collar and keep the flash head/diffuser at the end of the lens / near the subject.

Banana Fly - at least that's what they call them here. Not sure whether it's the colour/shape or because they like bananas (which is what it is standing on here). Anyway, it's a type of dolichopid fly (dolichopid means long legged).

Never seen this particular bug in the garden before. Check out that spike on it's back !

Curtis / Ryan - great idea for the extra site, not sure I can help but willing to if required, I have trouble even finding on here if I have posted a particular shot before never mind other peoples !

I'm also a semi-decent graphics designer, though my skills are now put to more nefarious means – creating corporate powerpoint slides filled with management buzzwords. But yeah, infographics are also part of my output so if we’re ever headed that way…

Off the top of my head, I can volunteer to curate (fancy name) or simply tagging (real-world application) photos with the appropriate genre of subjects, etc.
Putting myself as a newcomer/new user of the site, what I’d really want is to be able to search for photos of what I would usually shoot (or want to shoot)
We can create a standard list so fellow curators, okay taggers, can choose from and link to photos – portrait, people, pets, fur, bokeh, flowers, macro, landscape, cityscape, etc

Your help would be much appreciated but it is important to note that this will NOT be a site with heavy focus on photos. The photos to be included will relate to the lenses themselves plus a few photos to demonstrate what the lens is capable of doing. Since we have so many talented photographers on this thread who use these lenses, we'll have to do some difficult decision making. That will likely require some from the "committee" willing to make such decisions and coordinate with the photographer to get the image in the size to be used on the website. Hosting a great number of photos can be expensive but linking to other sites has its downside as well. Folks move photos and terminate accounts. We want to make certain that critical photos reside on the site but that there be a limit to how many are used/available.

This will all get clearer as we move forward. But we'd love to have you involved Chin... until changing diapers occupies ALL your time...
