    Hello all,

    To be honest I am a bit pensive about posting here. I am not a Knifemaker. I am not a metalsmith of any sort. I have never struck a hammer on a hot piece of steel. I do however feel the romance of creating something from the earth. I believe all of you are artists. Some of the pictures of your works are absolutely mind-numbing.

    I am a creative photographer. Its a hobby. I don't have any aspirations of making it into a profession. Its my art and it makes me a better human being. I understand that there may not be much I have to offer to this community, but I would like to try. More than anything else I registered to tell you guys that your creations are beautiful. I really can't imagine the level of satisfaction it must come with. To be able to create something from a lump of earth is poetically beautiful and I wanted felt I needed to deliver a cheesy and hearty good wish.

    If I am being an intruder, I do apologize. It took a bit of inspired googleing to get the answer to the random question right. Although right after reading it I did have a 'ohhhhh yeahhhh of course' moment. Thanks a bunch.

    Rano

    Welcome the forums, Rano.
    You aren't intruding. Anyone who has an appreciation for the art and craft of knife making is more than welcome. It's always good to get some different perspectives. And who knows? You just may catch the bug yourself.

    As a photographer, perhaps you'll have things to add in our Photoghraphy for Knifemakers section.

    Thank You Mythtaken. I definitely do have an appreciation for the craft. Its amazing how one would think because of the various factors involved it would be a very frantic process to forge something. But, you guys make it into a peaceful and enriching process. Having an understanding of how various elements around us react with each other and us is a wonderful skill.

    I have always had a project in mind involving artists and craftspeople. I would love to get involved and visit your guys at your workshops if anyone is interested. Fire, sparks, glistening steel, steam, it all can paint a fantastic picture. Photography is a passion of mine and I love capturing people and their passions. To explore the beauty in things around us that we don't understand is noble to me. I can give you guys pointers about how better to use your cameras as well. If I get to maybe visit anyone's workshop, we can explore various techniques that can help highlight specific features of pieces.

    Hi Rano. Welcome from Alberta.
    I would love to have input from a photogapher. I've goofed around with photography but it isn't my calling. I think you need a special eye to make a photograph special........and I aint got it.

    Welcome to the forum, it would be great to have a photographer to share some advice with us. What would also be great is if you could post up some shots you have taken. We all love pictures.
