Shoot Off 2013

  • Jan 25, 2014 · 10:00 AM

This year we will be adding a little twist to each month's shoot-off. It may be a special rule, or an extended deadline, or something else. We'll announce the twist along with the topic the morning of the shoot-off.

About the Shoot-off:

At 10 a.m. a subject will be announced to the CPI Supporters who have RSVP'ed to this event via email and the event page. Supporters will have the deadline listed above to shoot, edit and upload up to 3 images from the assignment to a gallery hosted on our site. Any images submitted past the deadline will not be judged. When uploading images, please upload full resolution full sized images (we have had gallery shows with the winners before and having full sized prints makes the printing process easier).

Remember, this is a Shoot Off, not a submit off. All entries must be between 10am the day of the Shoot-off and the deadline.

A judge will be selected then choose the top three entries. Winners will be announced when the next shoot off begins.

This event will not require anyone to be present anywhere and entries can be submitted remotely. The contest topic will not be Charlottesville centric, so feel free to RSVP if you are planning on being out of town.

If you are having any trouble submitting, please contact Nick Silvester ([masked]) or Chris ([masked]) prior to the deadline. There will be no extension on the contest deadline and all rules listed must be adhered to.

This event is open to all CPI Supporters (paid members).

    Good topic. Makes one think outside the box which is what I like--especially with the opportunity to see what others do. The spinning whatever, the flowing water, and the skaters were clever. I consider motion and speed as interrelated and could (would) overlap. In fact, I wanted to do something like the horse but with a turtle, but I had no turtle toy or fetish to use, and was largely house bound yesterday. Speed could have been either fast or very slow. In the summer a snail would have been perfect.

    I'm sorry to say I ended up working all day with never a moment to take any photos. It was an interesting subject.

    I had a difficult time distinguishing between speed and motion. They seemed intertwined. I was in a bit of a rush to photograph and speed edit but maybe that was a good thing. Esp like the image of skaters!

    It was a great challenge. Made me realize I need to sharpen some skills to get the effects I really want.

    I have to admit this was a difficult one for me. I had difficulty coming up with ideas. Am impressed with the other submissions!

    I'd be totally interested in going but might have to come later...unless the time can be adjusted at all?? :)

    I'm new to this, and may be interested, but need to know a little more before RSVP. Do we have to show up somewhere, or it more like a topic assignment and we go out and find it? :-)
