Clicking award winning Stock Photos
Whenever you are sending your images for a contest the judges who are going to judge the photographs are going to judge the photographs according to their life experience and notions and knowledge that they have gained throughout their life. While sending photographs for a contest many photographers will try to get inside information about the judges. Although this can be called smart work but your chances will be better if you exercise your smartness in clicking the photographs instead of getting information about the jury and the kind of bent of mind they have. The best move is to forget about the jury that’s going to judge the photographs and concentrate on the quality of images that will be sent to the contest.
Set high and lofty standards for yourself and compete with yourself. You are not in a position to control the judges but yes you are the one who is going to control the quality and the theme of the stock photos. You need to compete with yourself. Beat your own standards and expectations. This is the only way to score with the judges who are looking at your images and are going to give you points. Make it a point to stick to the theme. Don’t be overconfident at any point. Being a Wild Life Photographer does not mean that you are going to win the contest where the theme is “Beautiful Animals of the Tropical Rainforests”. You need to do a bit of homework before sending ion your entries. Study the award winning photos of other photographers. This will give you a fair idea of what it takes to win a photography contest.
Breaking rules is not always bad. Take the path that has either been ignored by photographers in the past or that has not really been given enough coverage in the past. Experiment with your lens and the lighting. One thing you need to control is the level of variation. Its you who needs to decide how far you can transgress from the regular routine. Break technical rules but break them in a way so that the judges are impressed with your works and reward you amply for your adventures.
Make sure that the images you are sending in for the contest have a story to tell. The story and message need to be so strong that it slaps the judges on the face and they are unable to ignore the message and story that you are telling through your stock photos. The message needs to be delivered instantly as the judges may just sift through photographs at a fast pace depending upon the number of entries they have received.
Although it looks difficult in the first place but if you have the conviction and really need to make your mark felt on in league with big photographers you need to go through the pain of research, hard work and a bit of smart thinking along with the risk of experimenting with your stock images.
