Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Part of the fun of good weather is getting outdoors to capture all the action. For some it's baseball, for others it's a day at the skate park or on the soccer pitch. Sports photography allows us to work with long lenses and fast shutter speeds, and to hone our shooting instincts to capture the peak of action. So comb your files for those outdoor action sport shots and show us how you recorded the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. This shot was made with a Canon Rebel with a 200mm lens across the arena at the annual Taos, New Mexico Rodeo. Exposure was f/8 at 1/500 sec at ISO 400.
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

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.
