"Print Competition" by Mark McCall
The new and improved print competition program is designed to take the scary out of print competition, giving you the tools you need to merit right away, and merit often.
Did you know the 12 Elements are not listed in the order Jurors use to put a score on your image? Mark arranges the 12 Elements in the ACTUAL order a human brain will subconsciously use to react to an image. We will concentrate on just 3 of the 12 Elements to send your scores into the stratosphere.
*Storytelling is #12 on the 12 Elements list, but learn why it leaps to #2 on Mark's list.
*The single item that will kill your score faster than anything else and how to stop doing it!*One type of image almost always merits. Find out what it is and how to create it. AND learn how to get others to pay for it.
*Two subjects are usually better than one, find out why.
*Learn how to squeeze an extra point or two by paying more close attention to an often overlooked area...the mat!!!
*Find out what type of paper to use with what type of image.
*Learn how a scrapbook of ideas will help you create stunning images and Mark's own personal scrapbook of inspiration that has helped him nail down 8 Photographer of the Year Awards from PPA.
*See Mark's ideas for the Master Artist category that includes taking things OUT of an image instead of putting things in.
