The open forums area, which includes Open House, Showcase and more, are free and accessible by anyone who registers as a member of ILP. Because it is accessible to all, we do not allow business/client related discussions or supplier-related discussions to take place. Members are advised to read carefully the ILP Guidelines soon after registering. Welcome![/size][/size]


[font=Arial][size=1][font=Verdana][size=3][b]ILP Enthusiast: [/b][/size][/font][/size][/font][size=3]Enthusiast membership was designed to allow those photographers who are serious about improving their photography to share and learn with others of like mind. Forums included on the Enthusiast side include: "Basics and Beyond" (image sharing and discussion), Constructive Critique (honest image critique), Enthusiast Tutorials, Portfolio Building (discuss conducting PB sessions/methods), Lessons & Assignments, ILP Local Meet-ups, Pixels & Chips (any tech related discussion), Photo Equipment Discussion, ILP Advanced Readiness, etc. Note that in depth critique is not available on the free side, so Enthusiast membership allows members to receive constructive critique from others with more experience and more skills.
