June book give-away!

Our June book giveaway is the new Photographing Waterdrops: Exploring Macro Worlds with Harold Davis.

This book has a $29.95 retail value.

Here's how to enter the give-away:

There are three things you need to do to be eligible for a chance to win the book:

1) RSVP "Yes" to this meetup

2) Send your email address (using email) to [masked] so we can put your email address in our hat for the drawing.

3) Post an image that has anything to do with water to the Water photos from Meetup Members photo album for this group. You can access the photo album by clicking this link or by clicking the Photos tab at the top of this Meetup webpage.

Additional instructions:

  1. Please caption your image as Harold does, with the image name, copyright symbol, followed by your name. For example: Wheels within Wheels © Harold Davis. On Windoze you get the copyright symbol by holding down Alt + Numlock and entering 0169 on the numeric keypad. On the Mac, the copyright symbol is Alt + G on the keyboard. It's good form to put a copyright notice on any image of yours that is published, inclusion in a photo album on Meetup is a form of publication, and we want to be sure to teach proper professional practice as part of our mission in this group. The caption field appears above the image after it has been uploaded.
  2. Please add a comment explaining a little about the background of your image, and what you'd most like to get out of the critique.
  3. Thanks! Enjoy the process.

Please note that when you send us your email address, it will be added to our Harold Davis Photography email list. We will not sell or disclose your email address to anyone, and you can unsubscribe at any time.


On June 30, we will put all the email addresses in a green party hat and let one of our kids pick out an address...the lucky person gets a free book signed by Harold!

If you are the lucky winner, we will email you and tell you! To receive a book you must have a United States mailing address.
