Selecting and Shooting Your Best Pictures for Competition Entries

Yesterday I posted about a number of photographic competitions that you might consider entering, not just because you might win but because of the learning process that you go through when working to a specific brief. I do believe that working to a purpose or particular subject matter improves your visual sense and eye so entering competitons is a good way to achieve that.

This article is written by D. Travis North who has his own blog. He writes that he recently acted as a judge for a photographic competition and this has led him to compile a list of tips and guides as to how you should approach entering a competition, all good information I think so have a look at his article here
