CompetitionsCategory X for the next competition?Are you smarter than your camera?From Matthew Brady to Ansel Adams the journey from seeing the scene to having a photograph in hand has involved the use of a sometimes-complex piece of machinery, the camera. Cameras have been simple, large and small, and increasingly produce better and better images. It’s now time to let smart devices such as cell phones and tablets prove their mettle.Category X for the December 2 competition will be “Smart Devices,” so get to work with your iPhone,Galaxy Note, or similar device and produce some amazing photographs. The only unique requirement is that the original image must be taken on a smart device. Images may be edited and will still have to meet the usual competition size and format requirements. Submission on the website will be from November 4-18. More information will follow in the next few months. Getting the image from your phone to the computer to the website may present some challenges. There are so many platforms available that it would be difficult to cover them here, so we recommend you bring your questions to a club meeting and consult one of the other members who has similar equipment. We all love to talk photography in any form.
