    Looking for people that want to help out doing photos for the TFW2005 galleries.
    This would entail working with the TFW2005 crew behind the scenes to ensure duplication of galleries does not take place, then upload your photos to the TFW2005 server. Once the galleries are online they will be posted on the front page with credit to you for the world to see. Multiple people are wanted to work towards this. The goal is to consistently deliver new Transformers galleries to the readers of TFW2005.

    Roles like this are a introductory position into the staff, which usually results in more site responsibilities such as modding and other content positions.

    Post here if interested with an example of your Transformers photography, we are looking for white backgrounds similiar to our existing galleries.
    Thanks!

    Just let me know what you'd like me to do. I've been known to take a photo here and there :thumb 

    Here are some examples:

    http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y117/superquad7/Skids%20with%20reprolabels/



    I did want to add that after finals, I'll be shooting a gallery of the test shot of Decepticharge. Once I finish the gallery, TFW2005 is more than welcomed to have it in the Alternators/Binal Tech gallery. :thumb

    I'd love to apply for this but I will not be able to put up a portfolio until tomorrow. Also I lack a light box but I shall come up with something!

    Try posterboard. It's what I used... I figure I won't invest anything major into a photo setup unless I know what I have to offer is needed.

    Thanks for the tip man. I'm going to try and use some white sheets with a florescent light.

    I have a Rebel XT and this would be a good chance to start using it more!

    Please ensure you post a direct link to your work on white background so we don't have to go searching for it. Thanks.

    are you looking for people with access to the rarities of the tf world for the galleries? I guess that would be a plus and I think i could help out with that to an extent.

    sure. Alphie is the only one photographing oddities right now *L* We still have huge gaps in a lot of galleries, there's even the occasional cybertron or such even missing.

    Here's what i've got. My light box can change on the fly to a better white if needed. Also some of the shadows that are visible in some places are easily fixed as well, just haven't had a reason to do it for my personal photos.

    I still know I'm probably not even in the running... I am willing to help, regardless of if I make it or not.

    About half of my collection is packed up at the moment, but that'll only be for a few months. I've got a decent amount of semi obscure European stuff. Anyway, here's some samples from two complete galleries that are waiting to go...
