I know that we are very behind on posting winners to our March Photo Challenge. I promise it hasn’t been forgotten! As Rick mentioned the most recent newsletter, I’ve been on a bit of an adventure the last few weeks. Specifically, I’ve been busy moving my family from our beloved, foggy San Francisco Bay all the way to New York City. (I’m just hoping that my sanity got packed away in one of the many unmarked boxes waiting for me.) But we will have the March winners posted soon, with April winners quickly following. Thank you all for being patient.
Now on to May! The theme for this month’s Photo Challenge is Architecture. Take a closer look at the buildings, homes, and other structures around you this month. Try to see them in a new way. In particular, keep an eye out for interesting angles, repeating patterns, and unusual perspectives.
In the newsletter, Rick offered some wonderful links to tips for shooting interesting architectural shots, and I think they’re worth repeating here in case you missed them:
- How to Photograph Architecture (Exterior) (Photo.net)
- 10 Tips for Shooting Architecture (ShotAddict)
- A Guide to Architectural Photography (Photography Mad)
- 9 Architectural Photography Tips (Digital Photography School)
- How to Photograph Interiors (New york Institute of Photography)
- 8 Tips for Taking Interior Shots Like a Pro (Photo Tuts+)
To participate in the May Photo Challenge, simply upload your image to either the PET Subscriber Gallery or the Elements Village Gallery between May 1st and June 1st. Please be sure to place the phrase“Photo-Challenge” exactly as shown (without the quotes) in the Keywords field if uploading to the Elements Village Gallery, or in the Caption field if uploading to the PET Gallery. If you’re having trouble figuring out the process (and trust me, you wouldn’t be alone), check out our new Contests page, which offers more detailed instructions, as well as screenshots.
