Since we’re heading to Hershey, PA this month for AWAI’s first-ever pet photography workshop, I thought to name this month’s photo challenge theme “Fins, Fangs, Feathers, and Fur.”
If you’ve got a picture of Fido or Fluffy, I want to see it. Submissions can include:
** farm animals
** exotic birds
** zoo animals
** wild animals on safari
** water creatures
** or anything else you can think of with either a fin, fangs, feathers or fur.
Keep in mind the various tips for composition and lighting you’ve learned so far through these weekly photo tips. I encourage you to go back through our archives at The Photographers Life and read some of the critiques of previous months’ entries. You’ll gain some useful insights about what differentiates a winning photo from one that’s just ok.
Cute snapshots aren’t going to cut it. For this theme, you need a big WOW factor — something a little unusual. Submit your best shot. This is your last chance to get into the grand prize $2,000 challenge in October.
