Featured Photo

How can I be have my photo featured?

  1. It’s easy, anyone can submit! This might be your first favorite photo or you have taken pictures for 30 years, everyone has a story tell… What’s yours!
  2. All you need to do is email me a picture at submissionsatdigitalcamfandotcom
  3. As well as a description of your photo – It can be technical, why you picked this aperture or that shutter speed, it can about composition, creativity, the weather that day, why you stopped to take that picture, where you took the picture at, anything you want to share about your photo.
  4. Include the camera or lens you used.
  5. Add a link to your photography site or Flickr account, if you don’t have a site you’re good to go! (It’s a great way to get some extra exposure)

Pretty simple, right! Looking forward to featuring your photo! Thanks for sharing your story! Check out some past posts on Featured Photo Wednesday!

Let me show you an example with one of my photos:


This summer I experienced my first attempt at photographing the stars! For awhile I was doing long exposures, like 45 minutes trying to capture the star trails. I would set up the tripod , crack open a beer and wait. The waiting part is very relaxing, as you lay there you hope you might see a shooting star. Chances are you won’t be let down if you are staring at a star filled sky for that long you will see more than a few shooting stars!

Then I cut back my exposure time, now I just wanted enough exposure time to capture the stars. Even though this picture is shot at 25.0 seconds if you zoom in you can see the stars starting to trail! If I took the picture with a really fast shutter speed the stars wouldn’t show up in the picture. Lucky for me we live in an age where you can view your final picture on your display and just take another picture if it’s too bright or too dark!

I used a Canon 60D on a tripod. A tripod or something steady is a must for this picture. I wanted a sharp picture so I picked aperture 7.1. Why I have the ISO at 400 I have no idea.  But I don’t think it created any noticeable noise so that’s o.k. The lens I am using is the kit lens that came with the camera 18-55mm lens and the focal length I have set is at 18mm so I could photograph the entire building and the stars.

*Don’t forget to add a link to your blog or Flickr account, if you don’t have one then you’re done!
