August Photo Challenge

The August Photo Challenge is officially up and ready for your entry!  This month's theme is:

Please remember to choose only ONE photo.  I will be taking submissions this morning through Wednesday night.  The photo can be a recent picture that you took (maybe with the help of this tutorial) or one of your favorites from your archives.  You can submit your photo a couple different ways:

  • Put your photo in a blog post (please 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.

(Canon 7D with 50mm 1.4 lens - settings: f/2.8, 1/200 sec., ISO 100)

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 receive the following AWESOME prize:

1. your choice of any of these amazing necklaces from 

(initial, ampersand, heart, bow or (my personal favorite) a CAMERA necklace)

2. a gift certificate to create custom photo postcards from

(perfect for sending all those thank yous for birthday gifts, showers, etc.)

Linky is below!  

Good luck!

*Prizes were donated by Make Pie Not War and Snow & Ivy.  I was not compensated in any way.
