A Suggestion....

Unread post by conrailmike »

Suggestion:

Photo Contests, and Assignments with themes.

Themes for contests could be stuff like MOW, Unusual Loads, etc.

Themes for Assignments could be stuff like heat waves, Locals, etc.

Contests should be 1 month and you may pull from your collection. Assignments should be 2 months to give ample time to get out and shoot.

Advanced Photo Assignments with themes like Panning, Creative Wide Angle, Long Exposures, Artistic/Creative, etc. (for those who are a little more advanced in their photographic skills, anyone can enter though) The time length would be the same.

The winner(s) will be voted on by the membership.

The winner of each contest or assignment will be put in the overall vote for the year.

I suggested this to Zack awhile back, he may have forgotten about it.

A great photographer can make a great photo out of any kind of light from any angle at any time, life is not a studio! There is no such thing as bad light.

I like Zack's simple photo contest but will try it if he decides to change...

It doesn't have to be the same as that one, but something like that would be cool.

Not forgotten..was just changing how the weekly votes were going on for the regular photos added to the gallery were taking place. I certainly wouldn't get rid of the current voting style, but would just add that as another voting process. We are getting more interest in the weekly votes with the number of votes coming in, but lack the number of photos that are submitted... does sound a lot like railroadforums.com, and even they have a lack of photos sent in each month it appears for their contests. I'll keep it in mind though.
