PTW (PhotoThemeWalk) $100 best picture

Ahh... finally I'm back! Hello everyone! It's been a long while.. and I'm eager to see as many of you as possible.

There are two theme words for this PTW: "lean" and "run". For example, Lean is not a hard word to be creative with, what makes it difficult is being original and communicating to the viewer that "lean" is the prevalent subject of your image.

$100 for best picture period. No entry fee, no meetup fee. Only obligation is that you be at the meetup when you take the image. You need to choose only one of your best images you want to submit before leaving. I'll make a record of it. From then, you will have 7 days to edit your image before submitting for judging. Of all the images submitted 3 will be chosen as finalist and posted on the website for voting by members only.

It's a promotion to celebrate the completion of website and the beginning of my 2013 National Tour.

Take aim at this meetup, no careless shooting and aimless walking. Can you make it a WOW shot? Simply put his PTW is going to challenge you or should I say, I am.

For those of you who have been out with me, you know I'm there helping you think outside the box. What you see may not be all that's there.

Feel free to begin planning your shoot ahead of time. If it means bring a prop or two then by all means do! Just keep them small or manageable.

Lean - What was your first impression of the word lean? Something tilting against something?? A wall? A fat-less piece of tenderloin, or perhaps an obnoxiously fit body?

Whatever you choose to shoot, invision it with only one word to title your image with: "Lean" or "run"

That's getting back to meetups with a BANG!

After the meetup, for those with the extra time, we'll head to grab a quick bite nearby.

Hope to see lot's of you on Super Bowl Sunday! You will be home plenty of time before the big game.

Cheers, John

    It was FANTASTIC getting back in the saddle with meetups. Not a bad turnout for a Super Bowl Sunday. These 8 photographers will be submitting one image for Meetup photographers to vote on. Images will be displayed for voting on Feb 11. Details will be announced and the merited winner will be $100 richer.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
