Okay so here is the "deal"...I thought it would be fun to do a photo challenge with whoever would like to participate!
Each month a topic will be posted on the blog and sent in an email to participants. You will have till the last day of the month at midnight (MST) to email your photo. If you are late you entry will not be eligible. To keep things anonymous and fair no names will be posted on photos and an outside sources will pick each topic and judge all photos. When the winners are chosen their name will be posted, ranked 1st 2nd and 3rd. If you wish to have your blog or website linking to the Challenge Blog please let me know and I can add it.
NO PHOTOSHOPPING or other digital manipulation. this contest is about photography, not about one's expertise with a graphical application. This does not apply to photographic techniques contained within a camera's abilities (i.e. a manual shutter release used at night to capture fireworks or moving traffic). Nor does it apply to CROPPING an image. Because of varying darkroom techniques, this usually happens in some form anyway and is therefore allowed here.
This challenge should be fun, force you to look at things differently and more creatively. The more the merrier, so feel free to forward on to your photog friends. If they are interested have them email me to be added to the distribution.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
