Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Thanks guys.

JW,
I'm experimenting with getting the front of kite, lines and pilot. Take a look at the Jon Trennepohl shots with the prototype.

He actually threw the straps away to get the kite to overrotate past the pancake. It doesn't show up too well with a black kite but you can see the effect here:

Yes that's a great idea.

If you're going to be this hard core into photography, you've got to get that camera Reed has.  You deserve it. You are way past prosumer level gear. Go all in and get the best equipment.

There's an old saying in photojournalism, attributed to the great documenter of nightlife, Weegee:

"F8 and Be There"

This is generally interpreted as "forget the tech stuff and be where you need to be to get the shot"

John has been pestering people on kite fields for nearly a decade. It's the fact that he's there, talking, thinking, schmoozing (and flying) that makes the pictures.

John's made great kite photos with every camera back to that classic N900. The picture of Dan Whitney with the Vapor in the upper right corner of this screen is as good as it gets and it was made 8 years ago.

The image quality out of his new SLR is certainly ahead of the last camera, but it's to the point that for on-screen display, there's not much you can do with more pixels or dynamic range. 20 grand worth of gear would not have made most of these shots any better.
