    www.popphoto.com is having a contest. Thought I'd share it with OT. Here are the details:

    I'll not be partaking as my camera took a shit on me the last day of the NAIAS press days and I havn't had the time/money to get it fixed yet. But it would own if someone here won.

    Sounds like my recent trip to Savannah. I took pictures starting at sunset, slept in my car at the pier waiting for the sunrise, took pictures. Slept 2 more hours, then drove into town and took pictures all day. In all, shot over 400 pictures, with about 300 of them being usable. As my skills improve, so do my keepers so it seems.

    once they found a winner based on the 5 pictures submitted, they will probably look at your other 220 pics to verify that you followed the rules :hsughno:

    I wonder how my co-workers and customers would like it if I took pics of them every 5 minuts for the entire day. Might make for some intresting shots.

    I guess they never could check you shot all day, as you only email them 5 pics, but that isn't the overall point of this. The idea is to get you to take as many pics as possible, and force you to take pics when there isn't a simple shot available. Drive more than 5 minutes in a row, and you need to take a picture while driving. It inspires creativity, and helps you improve your craft under the assumption that the more you shoot, the better you will become as you learn to improve your shots.

    What If I took 225 pictures without letting off the shutter button?

    That would only take what 45 seconds. :noes:
