Alright, everybody it's time for the third photography contest here on UG! In this thread we'll be voting for the theme for the third contest, when that theme is settled we'll start taking pictures and submit them to this thread. Poll will be up for 3 days, then everyone have 1 week to take pictures. So the voting begins 10 days from when this thread is created. Then we'll vote for the entries for 48 hours

Here are the descriptions for the themes in the poll (if description is neccessary):


- Black & White (was used for latest contest)
- Candid (defined as photography of subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed.)
- Food
- Nature
- Night (check if your camera can take nightshots before voting for this one)
- Portraits
- Gloomy (meaning dark and dim, basically)
- Conceptual (strongest/most powerful concept being conveyed by the photo wins)
- Sky
- Sunsets/Sunrises

Following text is copied from 4_symbol's last contest thread and slightly modified by me:

Photography Contest #3

Due to sucess of the first and second photography contest on Ultimate-Guitar, It is my pleasure to open up our third contest.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in the last contests...your support made it a sucess!


Please read the following completely to avoid being disqualified:


So here's how its going to work: For one week UGers will be able to submit their entries to this thread after the poll closes. Only one submission is allowed per user. Anyone who submits more than 1 submission will be disqualified. If you wish you can change your submission--but only keep the new one. Post your submissions in this thread. When it has been exactly one week I will formally announce the closing of the contest. Any submissions after that post will not be valid.

However, at this time voting will be open. Anyone on UG can vote for one UG user who submitted an entry. If you participate in this contest, you cannot vote for yourself. Your vote will be thrown out if this happens. Voting will be closed after 48 hours, and the winner will be tallied and featured in this first post.

Please also note that plagiarism is not acceptable!

Please note that you must take a new picture for this contest. You cannot submit some picture you took months ago. This is to level the playing field for everyone.

* * *

Edit: Forgot to mention that there will be no real prizes, just the privilege to put "winner of UG's photography contest #3" in your sig and a beer if I ever see you

This should be cool. I really enjoy looking through the photography thread. Some UG'ers have great artistic talent. I voted for conceptual.

It's in the poll because it's a popular theme. Black and white isn't about lack of colours, it's about taking what simple shades you have and make it into something intense.

ok. So ive always gotten my cameras from my uncle because he's a photographer, and a pretty successful one at that. Allowing him to give me one every few years; top of the line. But now that he's dead, and i've lost the camera at an airport that he gave me last october, I'm in a bit of a problem. So, i need to get a camera, because i love taking pictures, and I have a fiance .

Requirements: Not many. If its not a dslr, I would like it to be a digital with more than 7mgs.
And, being a student im kindof tight right now on cash, so try not to hurt my wallet too too badly.


So, I put this here for this being the photography thread being used most currently. Would you all please please please please give me some recommendations ? thanks

EDIT: I've never noticed how much i like to start sentences with so. lol

Haha, well the pictures I posted in the photo thread aren't from my film camera but yeah I just started using it. It's from like '85 but I've got some nice lenses for it, like a 135 mm and a wide angle lens. The pictures probably come out better than my digital too considering my digi cam is 10 years old and like 1.2 megapixel.

Sorry to hear about your D70, I just got mine back. But hey, atleast you get the firmware updated to 1.3

Oh and sorry, no, you cannot submit old photos. This is to ensure everyone has an equally fair chance. But if you can get to borrow a friend's camera that's great, we don't mind more contestants

Ah, we don't use judges, after the pictures have been taken and submitted everyone can vote for their favourite one. But see if you can borrow a camera from a friend or so, it's always nice to have more contestants

I guess we should have the debate whether Black and white should be included since it was the last competition. I wasnt around for that comp, so im sorry to say i voted B/W this time without knowing. Maybe ill be lucky and "Conceptual" will win..

well, it's a popular subject. Once the poll is over I'll put up some galleries to inspire everyone.

Can't say I like it myself right now but I promise you: Next time I'll veto against B&W so we can get some new stuff in

Tell me something that hasn't been done then, and should be basic enough for everyone to do without years of experience.

Can't say I'm sorry that you're not competing when you've got that attitude.

Agh damn!! I hate thinking in black and white!! I have an slr in black and white but no scanner, and a digital camera for which i can set the monitor to black and white, but thats cheating in my eyes, not the same as having to think of how something will look stripped of colour. But I'm still in. Oh and Liberation, if you dont like it don't take part. Don't insult it.
