Chuck, the file is too small and the background is a bit distracting

Hey Folks,
Yes, it's that time of the year again.

This gives you about a month to get a good, high resolution photo of your best work of 2008.

Anything turned this year (2008) is eligible. Deadline to get your photo(s) in is Midnight Sunday, October 5, 2008 (Pacific Time).

Each member can enter a maximum of 3 photos.

Make a copy of your file and reduce the copy to a maximum of 100k. Place your image(s) in the Gallery using the 2009 WR Calendar Album.

Photos that are too small, out of focus, have distracting backgrounds or do not fit into a woodturning calendar will be deleted. If time permits, I'll email you to give you a chance to produce a better image.

As the images come in, and when they are approved for voting, I will ask you to email me the full sized version of your photo. Please rename the files to match the name you used in the gallery. example "maple_burl_box.jpg".  Make it easy on me.

Voting will start the following weekend and close Midnight Saturday, October 18, 2008 (Pacific Time). A link will be provided later for voting.  Remember, to have your photos part of the voting process, I will need the full size version beforehand.

The calendars should be ready mid November for Christmas shopping.

----

A couple of tips on photographing turnings:

Make sure your image is in focus.

Set your camera on it's highest resolution setting, which means you'll get the biggest file your camera can provide. Remember these images will be full sized pictures, enlarging them will not make them look their best.

Send in the raw files. Do not crop, edit or manipulate the image in anyway.

Use a light tent to diffuse light and soften shadows.

Use a neutral backgrounds like gray, white or black. White works best in this project as the pieces look more natural and framed better if the lighting is right. Grey would be the second choice.

Avoid the "turning on the kitchen table" pose
, the multiple textures and background colors can obscure the subject & cause color reflections that aren't true to life.

If possible, try to photograph the profile & upper portion in the same shot. Using an angle that just barely shows the rim opening helps the viewer see the full form as well as the thickness/finish quality of the inside.

Try to frame the photo so that the subject has a couple of inches of space on all sides. The reason for hi-res photos is so we can rotate and crop as needed but if the subject is right against an edge we won't have any room to work.


Good Luck.

PLEASE

Use the same name as you used in the gallery as the file name. If everybody calls it Calendar.jpg it will be a mess on my end.

send ONLY full resolution files.

LOW RESOLUTION files WILL NOT BE USED.
