Macro Shoot Out Contest
May 15,16,17, 2015
The Macro Shoot Out will be held at Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia,PA.
Longwood Gardens has an amazing four and a half acres of indoor gardens with thousands of plant varieties and many outdoor gardens.
The contest will be limited to twenty participants who will compete for prizes.
I will be presenting a lecture on Friday night from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Hilton Garden Inn (a few miles from Longwood) on how to get the best results when shooting at the gardens. Saturday the participants will begin shooting at the gardens at 9am and will end at 3pm. Everyone will go view their images and choose their best shot of the day, and submit it by 7pm to me back at the Hilton Garden Inn. I will have myself and two other judges online that will view the images entered and pick the winners. On Sunday morning the group will meet at 9am at the Hilton Garden Inn to view and announce the winners.
The grand prize winner will get a Tamron lens. Other finishes will win a Acratech Ballhead, Vanguard Tripods, Think Tank Photo Bag, Lensbaby, Hunt’s Photo gift cards, Helicon Focus Software, Topaz Software, and more. Every participant will win something.
It will be up to each individual to find good subjects and produce the best composition they can without any help, other then the instructions they learned from the Friday night lecture.
The only processing allowed will be basic sharpening, saturation, and contrast enhancements. No specials software effects. This is to level the playing field for those who may not have all the different software programs, or skill to use them. The contest will be based on the subject matter and composition.
For those coming in from out of town, the Hilton Garden Inn has set a special room price for Friday and Saturday nights at $139 each night.
Cost to participate will be $149 plus entrance fee into the gardens on Saturday.
