Photography News

A couple of weeks ago, I entered a photo on line in some photo contests. One of them you get your picture voted on by your peers and one of them the site people vote on them.

However, there was another one I entered. The grand prize is $6500. You upload the picture and the editors review your picture. They pick a couple of hundred pics to publish in a photo anthology and if your picture is one that gets picked for the anthology, you are automatically considered a finalist for the $6500 grand prize.

Well, I’m being published!!!! And I’m a finalist for the grand prize!!!!!

I don’t know when all this will happen, but the contest is only once a year.

I’m so excited.

I love to take pictures.

I got my first digital camera in 2006 and discovered I wasn’t too shabby at taking pics. I also discovered how much you could play with the cameras and the different ways of doing shots. I loved the zoom feature and the quality of the pictures when they were printed off.

I obtained a new camera about 6 months after I got the first one and have been on a photo tear ever since then.

I’ve mentioned this before, but the pictures to the right of the page are pictures that I’ve taken.

I’ve even entered a photo contest here at work but they haven’t even judged the pics yet.

Wal-Mart employees have even accused me of being a professional photographer before and I almost got in a fight with the 16 year old “manager” behind the counter at the photo department because she was refusing to let me purchase my own photos that I printed off. She was finally convinced that they were mine.

Despite that story, I’m not naive enough to believe that I’m anywhere near professional status but I like to dabble a bit.

I want to seriously start developing my “craft” so to speak but money is such a factor. If, by chance, I actually win the prize money, I’m going to invest in a new camera. Maybe that will help!

Anyway, I just wanted to share the good news.
