Another way for you to showcase some of your best work is to submit an interesting photo and tell all of us how you got that picture.

Did you shimmy up a flagpole with one arm and shoot down on your subject? Did you have your spouse hold your ankles as you dangled over the side of a ferry to shoot some spectacular whale breaches?


OK, just kidding ...

Tell us the circumstances surrounding a photo you've taken. Doesn't have to be anything spectacular or extraordinary; just the story of how you were able to get your great shot -- including any information that might help other amateur photographers.

Make sure to include information about your camera and lens, f-stop and shutter speed if you know it. And also tell us a bit about yourself: How long you've been taking photos, what you like to shoot, what inspires you, if you belong to any camera clubs, age, occupation, town, etc. -- whatever you are comfortable sharing. Make sure to include your phone number for contact purposes only.

Send your photo and all your information to And thanks for helping us.

An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
