    I'm Zach, if you couldn't tell by my username. I'm from Texas and I've been a casual, amateur photographer for a few years now. Unfortunately, I haven't shot with any real purpose in a while. To me, this site represents a level playing field in that everyone here has access to the same tools, and that the photos we show are a measure of the photographer's skill and creativity, and not their wallets. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the stuff that you guys have shot and I hope that I can learn a thing or two in the process.

    Hey Zach. Welcome to Mobitog. Lovely to have you here. Sooooo, another member from Texas. I know it’s a big state and all, but ... Yes, you’re absolutely right - I hadn’t looked at Mobitog representing a level playing field photography-wise. Great observation.:thumbs: We do have very skilled and creative members on Mobitog and I learn something new from them every day. I’m looking forward to seeing your images of Texas and beyond (that sounds a bit like Buzz :D).

    Hi Zach, and welcome to MobiTog... so glad you joined us! :D You have most definitely come to the right place to learn about mobile photography and hone your skills. :thumbs: Take a look around, maybe join a challenge or two, and feel free to ask us any questions - our MobiCommunity are a super friendly and helpful bunch of mobile photography addicts enthusiasts!! :whistle:

    Here's some information that might prove useful as you find your way around:

    At the top right of the website you'll see a big question mark -->?<-- labeled Help - click on that any time and it will bring you to our detailed help section. You can also click this link: https://www.mobitog.com/index.php?help/

    Visit our "How Do I..." forum, where you'll find all sorts of tips and tricks to help you find your way around more easily: How Do I...

    The MobiTog Community is set out in four main areas or sections:

    Community
    Here we welcome everyone, post announcements and take in your suggestions and comments.

    Image Sharing
    Self-explanatory and broken down into sub-sections clearly named to make it easy to find a topic of your choice. It is here that you post your images.

    Mobitography Discussion
    For general conversations and discussions about all things mobile photography related.

    Members Area
    An exclusive MobiMembers-only section. Feel free to discuss things with other members - and find out about Top Secret stuff not for public consumption!

    Important note: Please remember that only images originated on a mobile device (iOS or Android) can be posted to this community. No pictures created on a DSLR or compact camera are allowed.

    Handy Tip: At the top of the site in the orange bar you'll see "New Posts", and clicking/tapping on it will take you to all the unread new posts that occurred since your last visit. Note: If there's just too many there to deal with, and you're really anal like me you can go up to the top and select "Mark Discussions Read" - and choose just a specific area to 'clear out', for example App Discussions, or choose all discussions which will clear everything and allow you to sort of 'start fresh'. That way the next time you go into New Posts, there will just be the most recent posts since you "erased" everything.

    Also when you hover over your username in the very top right, you have an option to choose "Ignore New Posts", and select any forums/discussions that you DON'T want to show up.

    We have lots of great challenges to help hone your skills and have loads of fun doing it, like Jilly's Black & White Challenge, and for the color-minded we have MobiColor, a fun group challenge Elements of Surprise (EOS), and a super interesting and fun challenge Time Stamp run by FundyBrian where everyone around the globe posts up an image on the same day and time. Check them out in our Competitions & Challenges forum!!

    Lastly, if you have any questions on anything at all be sure to give us a shout out!

    Hi Zach. Yes, you’ve come to the right place. I have found MobiTog is full of friendly and creative people all continuing to grow and learn, like yourself, and willing to share what they know and nurture creativity in others. I have to tell you, I never cease to be amazed by the photos people create on their phones! This is a world unto itself. A great place to absorb creative ideas and share your own images. Welcome.
