Running from the Law: July Photo Challenge

July Photo Challenge

I hope you all have been having fun with your camera this summer!  It's now time to submit your best/favorite WATER photo.  It can be one you took last weekend or last summer, anything goes as long as there's WATER in the photo. 

Please remember to choose only ONE photo.  I will be taking submissions this morning through Wednesday night.  You can submit your photo a couple different ways:

  • Put your photo in a blog post (make sure you reference/link to this blog post) and add your permalink (URL) to my linky below.  If your post has more than one photo in it, please make sure you clearly designate which photo you are submitting.

  • If you don't have a blog, email me your photo (my email address is to the right) or submit it on my Facebook page  (make sure you're a "fan") and make sure I have your name and email address.

(f/1.4, 1/2500, ISO 320, edited in PSE with Florabella Subtle Color action)

I'd also love it if you explained why you chose that photo, how you got the shot, what settings you used, if you did any post-processing to the photo, or any other fun info that could help others achieve a similar shot, but that's not required.  The more info, the better so we can all learn together.  

Winner will be chosen (and announced on the blog) later this week!  The winner will get a gift certificate to Pinhole Press to use your own photos to create personalized coasters or a custom Memory game for your kids.  

Good luck!  
I can't wait to see your photos!

  1. Thank you for posting your tips the other day! I used to blog, but haven't in years. I'm thinking of starting again, perhaps if we really end up moving to Charlotte... Anyway, I never moved past aperture with my Pentax K-x, and your post inspired me to adjust my shutter speed. It's amazing what a difference that made! Seriously, it got me excited about my camera again, and capturing Audrey moments. Thank you!!!

  2. Eek! I'll have to get my camera out ;)

  3. I failed at doing this this weekend. :( I am halfway done reading your tutorial. I can't wait to see what everyone has done!

  4. This is such a great picture Sara! I thought I would get some great photos at the water park yesterday, but it was just too hard to take any pictures with such an active 1 year old to look after. ;-) I hope to try and get some good water pictures tonight during bath time maybe. :-)

  5. Sara, I loved your photography post! You have really inspired me to tap into my creative side and try to pick up my camera more!

  6. I just found your blog through Amy at Story of Us! I would love to join the competitions as I'm a tried and true mammarazzi just like you!

    I should be able to get a picture to you tonight before the night is up. (Currently at work - boo)! Hopefully it's not too late.

    Note: I also read your confession post and laughed out loud and your inability to speak toddler-speak. Hahaha - nobody can understand my daughter except for my husband and me so I totally get it!

    Consider me a new follower! :)

  7. Hey there! Found your blog via Ashley at A Walk in the Park. So bummed I missed out on this photo challenge but am excited for the next one! We just got a new camera a couple of months ago & I'm sure my son wishes that thing never ended up in our house. :) Anyways, I'd love some more details on the photo challenges when you have a second! Excited to be following along! :)
