As you have no doubt noticed I am pulling together what has been true of OPF: we are passionate about life on the planet, diverse and colorful societies and the challenges we face.

We express these values with our photography. I am just gathering together broad subjects that reflect who we really are. So we appear to be more orientated to our fellow man and nature, than we might have realized.

All I am doing now is making this less-scattered content and more obvious organized and overt! Our photography doesn’t change, but the site becomes more effective.

In addition I will build a new gallery system where each person can, if they wish showcase their work.

The front end will be replaced with a more vibrant landing page.

From now on, please add keywords in the “tag box” to help search engines find us!

I look forward to your continued support as we strengthen and rebuild OPF to host our best pictures!

I am working to make our categories in the forum more rational so we can pull together like subjects and decrease the number of separate rooms.

Any suggestions welcomed.

We have successfully tested migration of our recently acquired modern new XenForo platform to a new server with the new OPF mail linked to the website with same IP/DNS address and a valid SSL certificate. ?

Nothing from us should now end up in your spam/junk mail from now on! ?

So please let me know if you experience any problems.

At the same time, our new IT consultant is preparing a new active landing page, Galleries and other enhancements.

Thanks for your support, ?

I will announce the final migration and we should be down for about 10 minutes in most areas but it could be 24 hours in remote areas.

Asher Kelman: “Light & Steps”


Our new “info.” email will give your mail servers consistent matching IP and DNS origins from https://openphotographyforums.com and hopefully therefore reach your mailboxes easier!

Let me know of any issues!
