  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Hi everyone, just thought i would share this photo of one of the Tigers at Dartmoor Zoo taken on 24th December 2010. This was back when i had a 400 5.6 and a Canon 50d. Its probably the only shot i have taken which i liked! lol

    Its a great place to visit by the way especially for us photographers :)

    Fantastic shot.

    The only thing I will mention, for me it would be perfect if you could see the pupils in the eyes but still a great shot.

    If you're ever down this way, you'll have to let me drag you there!

    It really is a great place for photography - the cats are in the main kept in by deep moats rather than fences so no shooting through.

    There was a meet there a couple of years ago - we arrived a bit late but still go in on the TP group price but didn't find the TP group. Well, we may have but there were 2 groups of photographers there that day - one lot in full came (I kid you not!) and another group in more normal clothing!

    Oh yeah! A great place for Tigers to be kept. They've got a whole 60yd. x 40yd. compound to themselves. Beats having the entire jungle to roam around in any time.
