Kicking off the month of February, I am making good on a promise to feature more of the photos that are being shared so generously by the reading and listening audience in the Learning Digital Photography group pool. There are so many good shots in there, and some really exciting dialogs are starting in sub-threads too! Keep up the great work folks -we all learn from one another and inspiration can come from anywhere!
Thanks to everyone for contributing all the wonderful photos. For everyone that has been following the January contest thread – that should also look familiar, because it was submitted by sdbaird in that thread. Congrats to her for the submission as this is also the winner of the monthly giveaway! She’s got some great photos in her online photostream too, so be sure to follow the link to her winning image. To see the full complement of entries, be sure to visit the January thread and let everyone know how great their shots were – I loved all the ideas of circles! For sdbaird, please send me an email to coordinate getting your copy of Photomatix Pro from the folks over at HDR Soft. Also, finally, thanks go out to them for their support of the LDP monthly giveaway series…support from vendors like HDR Soft are what makes the series so much fun and so valuable!
This means we are now into February, and a new contest. The month of February is going to be a fun one, because the giveaway prize is one of your own photos! The generous donation from Rich Charpentier of his well-known and respected online printing service is donating the cost of a 16×24 gallery wrap canvas of a print of the winners choice! This is an incredible donation, and the quality of Rich’s printing services is rapidly becoming known as one of the better services out there, especially for HDR (high dynamic range) work. Given the style, it seems only fitting that the theme of this month should tie into that a little bit:
So, get your cameras ready, and get shooting as this is an awesome prize and a great way to get your work really output in an amazing format and ready for hanging on any wall! Thanks go out to Rich Charpentier for offering his services for the February giveaway. The typical rules for the giveaway also apply:
- One image per person
- Only 30 days back in your own archives
- Posted to the Flickr thread for the contest month
- The longest side of your image should be between 600-800 pixels.
Rich is also going to join me in the judging this month, so it’s a chance to really shine and give a printing expert with a keen eye for talent a taste of your potential. For more information on Rich and his services, be sure to visit his website for more information at http://www.richcharpentier.com or stay tuned for the next podcast as we had another chance to sit down and chat again recently with the recorder going. It should be out either tomorrow or Wednesday!
That’s it for today folks, have a great one, happy shooting, and we’ll see you back here again tomorrow for more photo goodness. Don’t forget about the feedback post I made on Friday where you get to share your thoughts about the future content that you’d like to see here on the blog, over in the contest, and on the podcast!
