Well, I have to be honest; although we’ve had a few entries, it’s really not enough to make a go of this thing. There’s still time, though, so get your shots in to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to all who have sent their photos, and to those who haven’t, please share – we’d all love to see what you’ve done. I’m re-posting the rules and information, and if you need information or inspiration, see “How to Shoot Your Kids“.
Field Notes From Fatherhood is holding a Photo Competition! Send in your best family shots to for a chance to win! Grand Prize winner gets to take my kids for a month. Actually, the only prizes you’ll get are bragging rights, but hey, brag away!
Send in as many snaps as you like, but please, be merciful.
Only photographs of human subjects will be considered. You might have an amazing photo series of your goldfish Hildebrand, but people only, please.
If you’ve used one of the techniques discussed in “How to Shoot Your Kids,” please label each photo with that particular technique. It may seem painfully obvious to you, but we might not be as bright as you think we are.
- Shallow depth of field
- Unusual angle
- Not posed
- Get closer
- Get farther away
- Pan the camera
- No flash
- Using light
Entries will be accepted until July 27th.
Again, send entries to email@example.com
Good luck to all, and we can’t wait to see your shots!
