Scroll down for details. — Lori Lori Allen Director, Great Escape Publishing ******************* July 29, 2009 The Right Way to Travel, Weekly Photo Tip ******************* WHO’S YOUR BABY? By Shelly Perry in Portland, OR Lori’s expecting her first child… so in honor of this special time, this month’s Photo Challenge Theme is: Who’s Your Baby? How does your baby make you laugh or smile? Capture it with your camera and send it in to the Photo Challenge for a chance to win. The best photos will have: ** One clear subject ** No clutter or distracting objects ** Strong composition — taking into account the Rule of Thirds ** Focus on the main subject ** Proper exposure Who's Your Baby? While we’re really hoping to see some cute photos of infants this month, it’s okay to loosely interpret the word “baby.” Maybe your babies are bigger — or even all grown up — but they’re still your babies: Or maybe your puppy is your baby: Whoever your baby is, get out your camera and snap a shot of him or her for the Photo Challenge. And don’t be afraid to get creative. Try different camera angles and subjects… like this shot of tiny baby feet: To enter, send us your ONE best theme-appropriate photo. Multiple entries from the same photographer will be deleted before judging. Submissions for August’s Photo Challenge are due by 8 a.m. EST on Monday, August 24, 2009.
