I've all of a sudden become much more interested in entering photo contests and similar vehicals as a way to spread my name around in the local community.
The latest is a celebration of the local business area. In particular it is a contest that has photographers shooting images of business owners in front of their establishments.
I've submitted my proposal for the image I intend to submit, and now we play the waiting game until the end of this month. Then, if the accept my proposal I have to get my chosen biz owner to play along and allow me to make a cool image of them in front of their shop.
I guess now we just wait and cross our fingers.
I used to have all sorts of crazy ideas for photographs that would require me to set things up and organize people. I even pulled off a couple of them. One successfully and the other not-so-much.
I've learned my lesson. This next one will be awesome.
