We’ve put out quite a lot of photography guide posts over the last while, covering everything from the basics right up to how to shoot a feature car. We still have a lot more to come in the future but we thought it was time to stop, take a moment, and hand the reigns over to you guys for a bit.
We believe that sharing knowledge is a key part of helping to drive our community forward. There’s no point in having Speedhunters as one-way traffic – this site is as much about what you say and do, than what we post everyday.
Simply put, we want to see what you’ve learned from all of our photo guides so far. By stringing together the first guides, we know that you are already capable of blowing our minds. Now it’s time to share the results of your hard work.
If you want to take part in this theme, you’ll need to do the following:
- E-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the exact subject line of ‘The Photo Guide Theme’.
- Tell us your name, location and a little bit about the photograph.
- Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 1000px on the longest side.
- Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
- Closing date for submissions is October 18th 2013.
Be sure to include a note with each submission telling us just how you went about capturing each shot and how you overcame any difficulties that arose.
We created #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER to allow you the opportunity to share your skills and car culture experiences from around the globe with the rest of the Speedhunters audience.
