2017 Feb. 22: Digital Contests – From the Kitchen (Not Food)

Our next competition will be 2/22/2017. We will host our Digital contests. You may enter three.

The theme this month is “From the Kitchen (Not Food)”.

We all have a kitchen. This theme can be basically any photo taken in a kitchen or a photo of anything that can be found in a kitchen. For example people cooking or washing dishes or seated around the kitchen table enjoying a meal. Although the image may include food, it should complement the scene and not be the primary subject of the photograph. Click here for examples.

Competition rules, which include how to prepare your print entries are also posted on our website  http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/

  •   Digital –     
    • Email your digital entries in by Tuesday evening. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to is contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • Send your images as email attachments. Mac users need to put their images in a zip file and attach the zip file to the email.
    • Resize your images to 1024 pixels on the long side (1024 x ??? or ??? x 1024).
    • Files should be named according to the following convention:
      • A class identifier, ‘n’ for novice or ‘u’ for unlimited, should prepend the file name and be followed by an underscore.
      • The image name should appear next. For multi-word titles, it is helpful to either capitalize the first letter of each word or separate each word with an underscore. Although most mechanisms of uploading/transferring/emailing files handle spaces in titles, this is not universal. If you have problems sending files with space-separated titles, try the methods mentioned above instead.
      • An underscore and the owner’s first and last initials should follow the title.
      • Finally, make sure the file extension (.jpg) exists.
      • Examples: Here are file name samples using the above convention:
        • u_BridgeOnTheRiverKwai_cb.jpg
        • u_bridge_on_the_river_kwai_cb.jpg
        • n_thistitleisveryhardtoread_cb.jpg
        • n_some have trouble with this_cb.jpg
      • We will send you an email to confirm we have received your images and that they are named and sized appropriately. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the contest chairman at contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • If all else fails, you may bring your images to the meeting on a USB drive, but we may not be able to put them into the contest.

The Best Locations in Maryland for Photography

Despite being a smaller state Maryland has quite a bit of diversity in its landscape. Much of state is on or near the Chesapeake Bay, and the eastern state also includes beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Maryland also has rugged mountains and flowing waterfalls, as well as fields of sunflowers.

In 2016 Loaded Landscapes put together a list of the best places to photograph in each state (mostly from a landscape/nature perspective). They are looking to continually add to these pages and are hoping out members would have some suggestions for them in Maryland. Why don’t you visit the Loaded Landscapes and leave some suggestions in the comments page.
