Canon Australia is having a photography competition. It sounds fun and quite challenging so I have registered to play. The idea is to photograph five objects - sent in a box to all the participants. It is only open to Australian citizens.
My box arrived yesterday and it contained:
- a red ribbon
- a tea candle
- a lime green crayon
- a bubble maker
- a cocktail umbrella
It is obvious from the start that photographing some of the objects will require the cooperation of a second person, to blow bubbles for instance.
The prizes sound quite good, for instance you can win $5000 worth of Canon products.
The rules stipulate that you have to photograph each object separately, aiming for a creative effect. You can however edit them later in a graphics program which expands the possibilities as I have a lot of special effects filters which no doubt will come in handy.
I shall enjoy thinking up scenarios for the objects. I’ve already had a few ideas on the tea candle and the bubbles, but whether they will work out as I envisage, is yet to be seen.
Anyway when I have something to show and tell I’ll put them up here.
