This the last weekend for submissions to the latest Readers Photo Challenge assignment : Close-ups. The have been a submissions that have been a little unclear on the concept of a close-up. The definition of a close-up or macro photo is one that is shot as close as your camera will allow, basically the minimum distance that it will focus at. In other words the photo should be of something small (or a small portion of something) made big. A few have sent in photos that are telephoto shots: something faraway brought in close. So with the few days left until the deadline think small and get in close.
1. Entries can be emailed to email@example.com. Type in “Close Up” in the subject line.
2. Include your name (first and last), hometown, and the kind of camera/lens you used.
3. The subject is up to you but it must be shot as close as your camera/lens will allow.
4. If your photo is of a person please include the name (first and last) of your subject, their relationship to you (relative, friend or stranger off the street), their ages (if they are juveniles) and where the photo was taken.
5. Sometimes it can be hard to determine what the subject can be when shot in extreme close up. Please describe what it is.
6. Please feel free to include any interesting anecdotes or stories on how you took the picture.
7. The deadline for submission is Sunday, Sept. 8. The top examples will be published on Monday, Sept. 16 with an online gallery of all the photos on the same day (Photos have to be shot between Aug. 26 and Sept. 8).
We’ll see you then. Have fun and good shooting!
