Tim Cooper's Photo Circle

Thank you for checking out Photo Circle! Here you will find a social network, a classroom, a photo club and most of all a fun space to share and grow your love and knowledge of photography.


It's pretty basic: as you look around this home page, you will see that there are different avenues to take to grow your knowledge of photography. For example, you can get a photo or digital question answered. Just click on the clipboard to you left and enter a question in the title field. Tim will get back to you, posting all answers on the PHOTO Q&A page. At the Photo Q & A page you can also research answers to questions others have asked. Hopefully, over time, your inquisitiveness will result in a vast lexicon of information that we will all be able to use.

Here at Photo Circle, you can also get feedback sharing your work with other Photo Circle Members and with Tim. Check in often, as as you can learn from Tim's CRITIQUE OF THE WEEK of a selected member's submitted work (one or two images) as a way of highlighting the good points of the image as well as making suggestions for improvement. Also, by signing up to Photo Circle, you will create your own profile page (much like on Facebook), where you will be able to upload your latest work for all to view and SHARE. Then, your Photo Circle peers can review and comment on your work or vice versa. Exchanging feedback is a great way to learn and grow, so to get the most out of Photo Circle, make sure to interact with each other and partake in the dialogue!

Another way to keep up growing your photo knowledge, is to review Tim's online TUTORIALS. Over the next coming months, Tim will be updating this site with instructional clips that you can use to learn a new little Photoshop or Lightroom trick, for example. This is a great way to get a sense of the in-depth information available to you with one of Tim's DVD's. It's also a fantastic way to get a sense of his teaching style if you are interested in one of his WORKSHOPS.

And, finally Tim hopes to keep inspiring and encouraging you to work on your photography skills by providing a straightforward and friendly space here at Photo Circle. It's all about us continuing to learn.... while having some fun!

"To my fellow photographers,  I just wanted to share the results of a little experiment on large format printing.  I ran a bunch of tests to check the quality of 5 images at different enlargement sizes. Rather than order a bunch of very…"

Andreas Chr commented on Andreas Chr's blog post Which lens should I get?
"What could the damage be other than an external one and how could I detect it? Could it be a bad copy and how would I know? Although it is possible that the price tag is so low because nobody here in Greece would buy it otherwise. The market is…"

Larry Beidleman commented on Andreas Chr's blog post Which lens should I get?
"Before I buy a used lens I would have to be comfortable with the reason(s) the previous owner sold it. Is there hidden damage, poor quality, scratched glass, replaced with a better lens at a cheap price, etc. There are several…"

"I found a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 used for 1000 euros. It is a bit too pricey, but if it worths it... I don't know, we shall see."

Andreas Chr commented on Andreas Chr's blog post Which lens should I get?
"One thing though that would probably make the Nikon much more favourable would be the build quality. As I said, I don't have that much money and can't afford buying new lenses all the time, so it has to serve me for a lot of years."

Andreas Chr commented on Andreas Chr's blog post Which lens should I get?
"Al, I think Nikon will replace it with a much lighter alternative utilising Phase Fresnel elements, something like Diffractive Optics from Canon, and will also add VR. It is probably going to be expensive as hell though. I can't afford it new…"
