Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
Made In The Shade
While making images in full sun might be thought of as the best light in which to photograph, in fact when photographing in the shade you have less bothersome contrast to contend with and can often get images with rich detail and great color. Shade shooting requires working with white balance and perhaps slower exposure times, but the rewards can be great. We’re looking for nature, portraiture, still life, and more, as long as each shot was “made in the shade.”
Please Read This
It is important that you read and follow these guidelines. We need to follow this procedure because of the large volume of images we receive. If you have any questions, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
1) Images sent to us cannot be returned. You retain complete copyright over the images, but do grant us permission to print your image(s) in the magazine and on our website, www.shutterbug.com.
2) Because images are not returned please send a quality print or duplicate transparency. We will not accept or view images on CD, ZIP, or any other electronic media.
3) Images will be selected on the basis of content and technical quality. Please mark your outer envelope with the topic of the month (for example, “Wide View”).
4) Enclose a short caption with the image stating camera, lens, film and exposure, plus location. If you are submitting an image with a recognizable person we must have a model release or signed permission from that person to reproduce their image in the magazine and on the website.
5) Please submit no more than three photos for consideration (4x6 up to 81/2x11).
