Chat thread for weekly comp Back to Work
« on: January 02, 2012, 01:18:16 PM »
CHAT THREAD
Since this is the week that country returns to work (unless like me you went in last week for a few days) this weeks topic is  BACK TO WORK
The idea is to depict somebody doing their job of work whether it's a candid shot or a posed portrait it's up to you. It can be anything from a traffic warden issuing a ticket, to the barmaid pulling a pint at your local pub but try to get them actually doing the job. Hopefully the weather will hold up so you can get out shoot and have fun.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 02nd Jan 2012 to 23:59 Sunday  8th Jan 2012 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 9th January 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 10th January 2012.
Winner to be announced Saturday 14th Jan 2012.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Monday xx to Sunday xx

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Then I don't think it is aceptable. (At least not as a competition entry!)

At my current place of work if I take my camera on site I get shot (no questions asked), is this an acceptable risk for the weekly comp  :hmm:


Actually thinking about it I might just try and find another subject............ ;)

Not worth it, I would think. If you survived though, you'd probably have a really good action shot! But no, they' confiscate the camera and destroy the memorycard.

But there are plenty other people at work 'out there.' I was wondering today, whether I dared to ask the busdriver if I could 'shoot' him, and didn't dare!

Have to think of something/someone else now.

Found my victim in the city centre. I'm in with this one: The Street Cleaner.
