Greetings, volks. Welcome to Hohenfels Volks, THE place for our place! I hope everyone is warm and well, and with all this snow, is staying dry! We were hit by a virus, which limited updating of our site for a few days. All is now well, and photography never rest in Hohenfels!

Today’s post is going to just be a quick one. First, we’re not doing a theme this week. Only 2 votes were cast, and people are quite busy.

The second thing is a quick tip, making this a very short post. Always bring a notebook when you’re shooting. Even when you’re shooting digital, many of the details aren’t recorded. What was the lighting like, how did you choose you’re settings, why did you choose your position? There are any number of details that may be lost if you don write it down!

You’re camera settings are written in the EXIF information, but not why you chose them. Even notes about what you were thinking about can help bring certain things to mind. This can be a real Godsend when you encounter something similar. It also helps share the wealth of knowledge you may have about a place or time, and make your photos even more meaningful to you or someone else! It's also a great way to track your inspirations and visualization, too!

We’ll bring back the weekly theme poll next week; hopefully more volks will get involved! Hohenfels has so much to offer, and your input can make this thing of ours great! Keep shooting, and remember, write it down!

Don’t forget to post any of your images you’d like to see here at the Hohenfels Volks Facebook page. Of course, commenting on both Facebook and here is always appreciated, too! Don't forget, we're on Google+, too!
