Blog Rules

Before you start blogging gang, lets take a moment and review our Blog Rules.

1. Minimum photoshop use — this is a Web site highlighting the magic and power of in-camera techniques, please do not use Adobe Photoshop or any other after-the-fact editing program to enhance/modify/alter your image. Slight contrast/saturation fixes are okay — just remember you are bringing a voice to the world on how to use experience and talent to create something at the moment it hits you. Push yourself and your equipment farther than ever before — then show us the results.

2. Only True In Focus photographers need apply — If you use any setting other than manual ... don't bother. Real artists take full responsibility for everything their camera's capture — for everything they create. They would never give any piece of this away. If you are a gear hound or a photoshop freak — find a different blog.

3. Do not give us camera information when you post — the aperture and shutter speed of your image mean nothing to those of us who did not create it. Please don't post this information, it only goes to confuse.

4. Talk to us — please do not just post images. This is a blog for artists who have something to say. Tell us why you shot what you did, how it made you feel and what you did to bring that out!

5. No nudity. PERIOD! This will not be tolerated in any form.

6. Limit the number of photos. There is no need to post a string of similar images. Show your best and leave the rest.

6. Request Authorship. If you think you're ready and can agree to the above, click on the link below or to the right and I'll get you set up. Please note that we will (based on any reason whatsoever) pull any posts that we deem objectionable or conflict with the goals of the IFLC.

Request Authorship

  1. When I requested authorship it said the link was broken. Patsy

  2. Seems to be working fine on our end Patsy. Give it another shot. If not, just send me an email ( and I'll figure it out on this end.
