mini challenge 321 **SHOW US YOUR GEAR**
Mar 22, 2012

First, thanks Janne for hosting the B&W challenge that was so enjoyable, and for selecting my shot as the winning one!

Lately I sold my Sigma 30 1.4 and I needed to take a few pictures for the local craigslist. I ended up with nothing too fancy (see sample below) but I started wondering how one could take good pictures of photography gear.

So this time please post pictures of photography gear: anything from camera bodies, lenses, grips, filters, tripods. You name it. B&W and color are accepted.

The pictures will be evaluated on CREATIVITY as well as quality. A bonus will be given to pictures taken during the challenge period, so if you took a picture especially for the challenge please mention it in your post.
The challenge will end Thursday March 29 at 8 pm EST.

I'm adding one sample. I apologize for not taking better samples, I planned to but never got to it. Believe me, it is a crazy week.

Standard Rules:

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.
Posting Guidelines:

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles. This way, when someone comments (i.e. replies), it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini- Challenge xxx * …" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but try to put them within a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
