Januarys contest will be of "Winter Life". There is no specifics to this topic aside from the fact that it must be a winter shot picture depicting life of some sort during the winter months. I know this is a broad topic, so use your imagination. All submissions must be made during the month of January on the January Submissions thread. Any non-technical questions may be addressed directly via PM.

This month's sponsor is from you named it... us... TRJ Photography and the prize is a $30 gift certificate from Photo Lab in Schenectady.

I have talked to a few people since I started the monthly contests this month... I want everyone to know that the contests are more so everyone can get practice and learn to use the equipment they have more then it is about winning. Photography should be self-challenging for everyone...

After the first month I am considering having the winner be a random judge for the next month which will allow everyone to participate in the processes of judging a picture.

We have a lot of great photographers here and more so a lot of people starting out in photography. I hope that everyone takes away a sense of doing a great job every contest over worrying about winning something, and that the newer photog's learn a lot more of the techniques on getting "the shot"...

Ross, I think that's an awesome idea. Win or lose, I know I'll have fun with this..... I have always enjoyed viewing other's photos and submitting my own in the gallery.

Yea Ross......sounds great, that way everyone gets to participate in this....i'm just hoping to get out there and get some pics soon :cheers



Also I would also like to encourage EVERYONE on the site that has a digital camera to get involved in this.......NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA THEY HAVE....like Ross said this is for the fun of taking pics and learning to use the camera you have :rock :rock









***Correct this last statement if I was wrong Ross :dunno

you CAN consult with the judges... we cant tell you how to shoot or what to exactly shoot... but can give suggestions on stuff... remember that winter doesnt necessarily have to do with "snow"

He got the info from opening the photo up in the program from the software that came with the camera. You can choose a photo, right click and hit properties, it outlines it all for ya. :thumb

He did NOT use any manual settings...... that camera IMO is better on auto.

This photo was taken behind my house in the parking lot to the library/muninciple bldg.

This is our neighbor Johnny playing on his quad he's had since he was a wee little boy..... yes he has bigger toys... but it's always fun to pull this little baby out.

I want to say that judging was extremely difficult. Everyones pictures were really good!! It took all three of us the 2 days to work out who we felt would win. So along those same lines, we arent going to openly critique anyones pictures... if you would like to know what you can do to improve your shots please feel free to send any one of us a PM. I am sure that all of us will go out of our way to help get you on track... :thumb
