As I announced last month, the contest theme for July is Grill It!
It's a challenge to get creative with an everyday event, so let's see what you can do. I am talking about grilling food -- not photos of sewer grills or the braces on somebody's teeth.
For you apartment dwellers, if you can't get yourself invited to an outdoor cookout, then indoor George Foreman grills or stovetop grills are fine.
I'm looking for creative shots of food on the grill, closeups of the grill itself, grilling accessories, the grillers doing their magic ... just remember these aren't quick snapshots for the family album. Good framing, lighting, perspective, and creativity are necessary.
Just a few rules:
Your photo MUST be taken this month.
The deadline is midnight July 31.
One photo per photographer.
We'll try our hand at demonstrating the Rule of Thirds for the August contest. Those photos can be taken any time, so you can start work on that now, or find something exceptional in your portfolio.
