The contest asks for pictures of “Truckstop scenes,” such as this night shot from a Georgia Pilot. The prize, in addition to publication in Truckers News, will be something of a “field guide” to the basics of shooting, by Bryan Peterson, founder of the Perfect Picture School of Photography, www.ppsop.com. It’s “Understanding Photography Field Guide: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera,” an excellent reinforcement of the trained photographic eye, I’ve found.
To join the Flickr group and participate in this month’s contest, visit <a href=”http://www.flickr.com/groups/truckersnews” >flickr.com/groups/truckersnews</a>. Here are the contest rules:
1. Post your appropriately themed, high-resolution (around 1,500 by 900 pixels, at the very least, will be needed to be included in the magazine) photo to the pool by midnight of Sept. 30.
2. Send an email with your full name, location/mailing address and your trucking business’ profile in brief (who you drive for or whether you run on your own authority as an owner-operator, etc.) to me, Todd Dills at firstname.lastname@example.org — include “photo contest” in the subject line and a link to the original Flickr location of your entered picture as well.
