Questions from Workshop

We had a great workshop tonight. Thank you to all who attended. It looks like we are going to have a lot of participants in the photography project this year. ;-)

I wanted to address a couple of the questions that were asked tonight.

1. Panoramic photos - I was told "if it is a panoramic camera, then the photo is NOT considered "special effects." If it is a regular camera, and you use the panoramic setting, then it IS being manipulated, therefore it would be put in the "special effects" category.

2. If you have two categories represented in your photo, such as a child and animal in the same photo. the category will be determined by the main subject of your photo. For example, if the child takes up most of the space in the picture, then the child is the subject of the photo, and it would be placed in the "people" category. If the animal takes up most of the space, then it would be placed in the "animal" category. If it looks to you like it is 50/50, then it can go in either one.

I hope this answers your questions. If you need further assistance, please e-mail me. :-)
