okay, so i had livejournal died.

i'm sure you noticed.

yeah . . . sorry 'bout that.

Since I'm horrible with keeping up with anything I start as noted, let's reorganize?
I have no idea what the person who wins would get, so if you play to win something materialistic then yeah that sucks for you.

I was thinking probably like two months paid time or along the lines or something?
So, yeah I don't even remember how I organized this before, gah i suck.
I guess too many people participating at the time, drives me crazy uploading everything and shitte.

Sooo, I was thinking we only do 10 people per contest?
And I need people to help me PLEASSEEE.

So here's the deal:

My computer has been so packed and virus ridden that I'm not taking any chances on saving more stuff on it, and I'd probably never finish. So to make life easier nad actually progresive I would like to ask if you all wouldn't mind making a fotolog.net account to store all contest picture entires I ask for?

And you have to wait until the deadline day to post the pictures.

So could you all do that and keep your livejournal name or something similar? And, that way since I know emeraldiris likes to put lyrics or poems or something like with her pictures and it'll be easier like that if maybe you all like that too.



Sorry for asking this but I'm afraid it's the only other way I can think of.

Please, and thank you.


EDIT: I just noted fotolog only allows one picture posted a day. does anyone know something else that could be used? any other photo blog?

Seeing as some people couldn't send me their photos, out of town, etc. I'm extending the deadline, as I was also out, Disney World. I got back yesterday, and I probably won't be putting up voting until later in the week, so put your photos in the challenge post.

For further reference:

If you know you are going to be out of town email me or let me know somehow. If you go out on short notice let me know as soon as you can.

New deadline = July 28, 2006

One week left. Hope you've been taking pictures. Have any of you submitted yet? I'm new to this whole "screening" thing. The maintainer can always see screened one, yeah?

THEME:Emotive Portraits- Take emotive portraits. Capture anger, fear, happiness, anger, etc. The idea is that the portrait reveals something very personal. The look in the eyes, the wrinkles, or the eyelashes, the smile, the soul as it reveals itself in the expression. When it’s done right, the connection is immediate. You feel something - It could be affection, or despise, but you feel it, and that’s effective. The secret to a good Emotive portrait work is not as commonly considered, the model.Of course the model is important, but I believe that a good photographer can tell a touching story about every one of us, if he does it right. Emotive portraits have to do a lot with technique – Light, angles, composition, and focus. But, not technique is the secret either. IMHO the secret is in the answer to the question: “What is it that I want to tell you about this man (or woman)?” After you answered that question, all you have to do is use all you got to show that special emotion. When it’s done right, it’s hard to find something as touching a face with a story.from someone at deviant
