Hi Everyone, I'm Jamie, I have wanted to join for some time and it finally made it to the top of my to do list!

Hey, I am a landscape photographer based in Western Massachusetts. I love exploring my local area, especially if it is foggy. I started photography with a Canon Elan 7e and a DIY black plastic basement darkroom in 2001. After 15 years of doing occasional weddings and events to pay for this expensive hobby, I embraced landscapes and night photography to appease my preference to hike alone in the woods.

Hi Jamie and welcome to NPN. Quite a beautiful image you have here with the foggy trees and the rows of plants. So you’re entirely a film shooter? That’s something in this day and age. I sometimes miss it, but not enough to take it up again. Do you do color work like this, too, or just black and white? Either way I hope that you’ll feel right at home and start to share images and commentary on the ones you see in the different categories we have.

Quick Tip - you can reply to multiple people in one post by highlighting any text in their reply and using the Quote function. Another way is to use the @ symbol and choose the person in the list that comes up. Use the tab key to automatically select and fill the name in your reply. Hope that made sense!

Feel free to ping me or any of the other moderators if you have questions about posting or navigating the site (don’t worry, I volunteer them all the time!). You can use Private Messages which are found on the User card that pops up if you click on someone’s name, or you can use the Chat feature that is found in the same place. For communal chat, click the Speech Bubble at the top of the menu bar on the right. We have Photo share, Site Help and Campfire that might be of interest.


Welcome to NPN, Jamie. What a beautiful image you chose to use in your introduction. The color balance, lines, and light are beautiful. I hope you will enjoy being a part of NPN by providing images for critique as well as offering your feedback on other people’s photos. Enjoy NPN!

Hi Jamie and Welcome to NPN :slight_smile:

What a great first image! I love the amber light coming through the fog, the single tree is nicely balanced by the two smaller trees in the distance inline with the plant rows.
Great lead-in lines with the rolling land!

Wonderful mood!

Just a lovely image and I’m looking forward to viewing more of your fog, night and inclement weather art!!

Edit: I meant to mention that I really like the mix of warm and cool tones in the sky!, Nice touch!

Welcome aboard! :slight_smile:

Hi Jamie,
Welcome to NPN!

I have wanted to join for some time and it finally made it to the top of my to do list!
That was the same for me. I had NPN on my list for quite some time. Since I joined, my only regret is that I delayed it for so long. I hope you will enjoy this friendly community as much as I do.

That’s a great first image. I love trees, and your combination of sun and fog creates a beautiful atmosphere.

Can’t wait to see more of your work.

Thanks for the tips Kristen. I still occasionally use my old film camera but most of my work is digital these days.

@Jamie_Malcolm-Brown, welcome to NPN! I’m fairly new here myself, although not new to photography. What a lovely image! I’m also looking forward to seeing more of your work. What are you shooting with these days?

Hi Patrick, My main workhorse is the Sony A7R3 and the DJI Mavic 3. Thanks!

I’m a long-time Nikon shooter, but Sony makes great cameras as well. I just acquired a DJI Mavic 3 Classic myself. It’s been a lot of fun learning to fly it, take some decent video, and learn Adobe Premiere Pro.

Hi Jamie; welcome to NPN! I will add to the chorus and say what a awesome image - I especially love the colour gradient from left to right.
I also had the Elan 7e back in the day. I sold it once I switched to digital because I didn’t use it at all but I now sometimes miss it and regret not having it. I’m not so keen on shooting film that I’d want to go out and buy a film camera but I might be inclined shoot a roll or two every once in a while if I had one. :slight_smile:
