Do you know something about photography that might help thousands others?
One of the aspects that I’ve been loving about Digital Photography School over the last few months is that among the DPS community are a growing number of digital photographers who have some amazing gifts and abilities when it comes to their photography. What’s more, many of them are willing to share what they know with the rest of us – helping us all to learn more as a community.
If you’re one of these people with some great experience to share I’d love to invite you to do it more formally in the weeks ahead.
I will be taking a two week trip at the beginning of June and rather than just recycling old tips for those weeks I want to invite you, the readership of DPS, to keep this blog going by inviting readers to submit a tip, tutorial, review or article on some aspect of photography.
What could you write about?
Here are a few ideas that come to mind:
- a compositional tip
- a review of a digital photography book, camera, camera accessory, piece of software etc
- an exploration of a type of photography (eg. 10 tips for beginner wildlife photographers… how to photograph slugs…. museum photography for beginners)
- a ‘how I took it’ tutorial (show us one of your images and talk us through how you took it)
- a photoshop technique tutorial
- a review of your favorite photoblog
- an exploration of a camera technique (eg lighting techniques)
Really there are hundreds of directions this could be taken – I’m open to hearing your ideas. Your contributions can be long or short, aimed at the beginner or expert or really be written in any style – it’s up to you!
What’s in it For You?
If you participate in this way I’d love to highlight you and your photography in any way I can (with a link to your flickr account, photoblog, blog). While I can’t guarantee you heaps of exposure through this DPS does have 10,000 or so daily readers who you’ll be helping (and who might come visit your site or photography).
If you’d like to help out in this way I’d love to hear from you as follows:
- Email me via our Contact Form
- Please include your name, email address and a link to your flickr account, photoblog, blog etc (if you have one)
- Please include an idea of what you’d like to contribute – topic and perhaps a title
Looking forward to finding out what the community can come up with!
Please note – last time I did this type of thing I was inundated with submissions. Please not I can’t use everyone’s on the main blog. Before you start writing pitch me the idea and I’ll let you know if I can use it (rather than writing full articles and sending them in).
