    Default November 16- 30th - Motion

    Last contest of the year!!!!
    This 2st half of November's contest is "motion".
    Again open to your imagination. This is the last chance to qualify for the end of year contest.
    The contest will run from the 16th through the 30th and the thread will close on December 1st.

    You can upload your entry to this gallery:
    http://www.43photo.smugmug.com/gallery/3840217
    Username: tony@fourthirdsphoto.com
    Password: gone

    Please link them back here, and make sure that you include your username so we know who it belongs to. OR you can place the photos in this thread (either by attachment or from your own online album) and they will be posted in the gallery.
    Here are some tips on uploading an attachment:
    http://fourthirdsphoto.com/vbb/faq.p...q_new_faq_item
    To upload a thumbnail with a link to the larger version, HERE is a link from page 2 of October's thread.

    If you don't know how to embed the exif in your photo, here are some instructions I posted in the "keepers" forum that might help. If that doesn't help and your program doesn't do the job, send me a PM and you can email me the photo along with the original and I will do it for you.

    In order to qualify, please follow these site rules:
    1 - Shot must be taken with a 4/3 system camera.
    2 - Only 1 entry per person (but you can replace it with a new one).
    3 - Photo entry must be dated (photo taken) between November 1st & 30th and EXIF info embedded so the date and camera used are visible.
    4 - Optional; A title is nice to include with your photo. Otherwise, it will be given one.

    Here are a few guidelines to follow:
    1. The photo should fit the theme of this month's contest.
    2. The photo should be technically unique. It shows creativity in the shot, and wasn't just another snap shot.
    3. The photo should have some sort of emotional appeal to the viewer.
    ---------------
    This event is sponsered by media chance and the 1st prize winner will get first pick from one of the following prizes (below). Should that prize winner choose the smugmug account, the 2nd prize winner can choose any one software package offered:

    Choose one of these programs:
    PhotoBrush|
    Dynamic Photo HDR
    DCE AutoEnhance | PureImage
    Multimedia Builder RealDraw
    (Click the titles to read about each program)

    Or choose:
    A free year (pro) at
    smugmug
    (A $150 dollar value)

    The top 4 contributers will be entered into the 4/3photo photographer of the year contest.
    ----------------
    Common Questions:
    • What is a 4/3 system camera? These include Olympus E-1, E-300, E-330, E-400, E-410, E-500, E-510, Also Panasonic DMC-L1 and Leica Digilux 3.
    • How can I make sure that my photo has exif? #1 - IF you use Olympus studio do not export the raw file as a 16Bit tiff, these seem to eat up the exif info. #2 - Do not use "Save for web" feature in Photoshop. Just save it as you would any standard jpeg.
    • Why don't you let us use old photos? These photo contests are to support creativity, as well as a fair playing field. We want everyone to have a chance to participate, as well as be actively involved in shooting on a regular basis. That way we make the contest only open for a short period.
    • What if my Attachment box is full? 2 options; A - delete out some attachements by going here. B - upload to the gallery that we have provided. C - upload a shot to another gallery on the web, such as hosted by Smugmug, or flickr, and link that into the thread.
    • What does the site do with the photos from the contest? We do not allow printing of these photos in the thread, and they are there to show off how good the users and the systems are. We will not use your photos in any manner, unless you are asked for written permission.
    • How do I win? 1. A photo should fit the theme of this month's contest. 2. The photo should be technically unique. It shows creativity in the shot, and wasn't just another snap shot. 3. The shot should have some sort of emotional appeal to the viewer.
    Have fun!

    The contest looks a little bare so I though I would share something. Not sure if I did everything right, but I have uploaded an image to the smugmug gallery.

    http://43photo.smugmug.com/photos/223241032-O.jpg

    This was one a series, I entered another in the oly dpreview forum contest.

    - I have been asked how this was done. The basic setup evolved over a few days and was a few meters of black cloth in the background, a cheap "home disco" strobe light, a cymbol stand to hold the strobe. I also spray painted a pair of sticks white to make them show up more. The final element was a drummer who had reached the stage of doing snare drum technique practise. We tried various combinations and lighting setups, it worked best when the strobe was almost directly in front at about head hieght.

    Best regards

    Colin

    Hi guys. I was gone for 2 weeks on the road in our Peterbilt truck (w/52' refer trailer), hauling fresh and frozen foods from N.Y. - TX and back to FL. Couldn't get net access the whole time (but that will change).

    Got back this afternoon, and will try and keep things updated.

    Ann
    p.s. I fixed the url in Tony's original post above.
    Appreciate what we have, instead of worrying about what we haven't. Enjoy what is, before it isn't.
