Blue Fig (Freeform shot taken in our garden)
I think that if we don’t adopt the concept of transformation into our daily lives, we will not got out the front door.
It is not very different for photography.
I went from being scared of our SLR camera( my husband took all the pictures several years back),then using it for a now defunct personal blog and finally, becoming a full-fledged hobby photographer. With all my errors and ongoing apprenticeship, I will admit.
I know that I am no longer content with my old style of “point and shoot” that I had before the SLR.
Last week while googling “Photography”, I stumbled upon photography contests.
I know very well that this is not the road from rags to riches, but it could be an excellent experience. You could win modest monetary prizes or photographic equipment. It is a chance to not only test the level of your best pictures but also to expose them.
Here is a non-exhaustive list to consider. Keep in mind that you need to pay to enter some contests, while others are free of charge.
No, I am not paid to plug these websites but do yourself a favor and look at some of the gorgeous work featured. I have no immediate plans of doing a contest now but, I am not excluding it in the future!
