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.

Here's the gallery where you can see others' photos and enter your own.


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.

Here are some good tutorials:

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

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?...
