Susan Vermazen, the Globe photo editor who judged the 'Singular' photo contest for us, evaluated the overall field of photos as "a really interesting, thoughtful effort." She has some good, basic advice that in summary, really says, "Slow down!"

Susan writes:

I would advise the shooters to (in this order):

1. Really think about the assignment before shooting.

2. Think about what the editor is asking for.

3. Think about what it means.

4. Think of what or who or where in your life that goes with what you are feeling about the assignment.

5. Think about the best time of day/evening/night to make the image conform to your vision.

6. Then go and shoot.

I'll post Susan's Top 10, including the First, Second, and Third Place winners, on Friday afternoon. Meanwhile, enjoy looking through the Final 50.


PS I'll post the winners of the "Grill It" contest on Monday. We had just 83 entries for that contest, so we're going straight to the Top 10.

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....
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?...
