      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

how to make fish look bigger

Recommended Posts

Sometimes after taking pictures of people holding fish, one picture will stand out as really making the fish look bigger then it actually was. The attached picture is my father in-law holding a 13-15 pound northern, but in the photo it looks like a 20. Does anyone have advise on different angles stances etc. to hold fish (beyond the old stand-by of extending your arms out), or do I just need to learn how to catch bigger fish? web page

How to make a fish look bigger??

- Hide your hands. Big ole fingers wrapping around a fish are a clue to the size of the fish.

- Hold the fish out away from your body.

- Sometimes camera angle helps. Shooting from a lower camera angle. I think photos should be taken on an even level with the subject, maybe lower.

- Another general photo tip is sunlight. The photo of that pike is all in shadow. It would have been nice to turn the boat around, or have the angler & photographer switch places.

Got a double of 27"ers this year on Mille Lacs, The one my buddy, a guide on mille lacs who takes a lot of pictures with fish, is holding looks way bigger than the one I am holding. we both are holding the fish away from our bodies, but he is holidng his more vertical and has the dorsal tilted slightly towards camera. I know I will do the same next time I am getting my pict taken

-use the wide angle view from a camera (i.e. if your camera has zoom it should be zoomed all the way out) and then walk forward until the person frame almost completely in the photo.

-do not face them into sun. they will squint and it will be a poor photo. rather, face them away from the sun and turn on your flash to fill the shadows.

-hold the fish away from the body

-minimize exposed fingers etc

-hold the fish so that it from the camera's perspective it covers up your arms for the most part.

-actually have a big fish :-)
