Every once in a while I enter photography contests on the net. They are not free-for-all competitions (though they are free to enter), but are restricted by date and subject matter. For instance, this week I entered a contest where my photo had to fit the subject “Communication.”
I decided to go to the station’s roof and take some shots of our satellite dishes. I’m not sure if either of these is anything special, but I spent well over an hour last night obsessing over both of them. I have gone back and forth over which one to actually submit (and might change again).
It is definitely a challenge to shoot to order – good discipline. Some weeks I just have to pass, unable to figure out how to creatively fill the bill.
