I am Nikonians, Wasil Khan (WK) Interview

Wasil Khan (WK) joined Nikonians early in 2004. Not only he is a good example of the members who live our motto, learn, share, inspire, he also gives us a lesson to find beauty in subjects we would rather run from. Read more...



Shh...Silent Show

Gold Member Sarah Boser (Sara9) has introduced the concept of the 'Silent Show' to Nikonians.

"I recently had a conversation with an accomplished photographer about how he puts together an exhibit with a museum curator. He talked about how his process is based solely on visual impact and the emotional response, minus a linguistic component/ discussion of the images."

Join Sara in the A Picture I Took Forum to learn more and add your images to the Silent Show.
