Submitting your Nature Photos
My Nature Photos is designed to show Nature Photos from around the
world. We are starting to receive pictures from amateur and professional
photographers, and we will do our best to organize and display these
pictures. Here are some guidelines for submitting photos.
|Nature photos should be taken outdoors, in natural settings. We love
ALL nature photos, including animals (fish, birds, insects, and every kind
of critter), plants, landscapes and water. We would prefer photos of
animals in the wild, not in captivity.|
|We will give credit to all photographers. If you are under 14, check
with a parent or guardian first, and please don't give us your name.
You can mention that you are a student, give us your grade and your school
name, and your town.|
|Professionals are welcome to submit photos without watermarks.
Although these photos are high quality, they are much lower resolution than
the original film. We will be happy to provide information on
purchasing high-quality enlargements of any professional photos from the
photographer. Stock photographers are also welcome to submit photos.|
|We are looking for high-quality photographs, but we realize that it isn't
always easy to get great photos of wary prey. We can't promise to
display every photo submitted, but send us your best efforts and we will do
our best to show the world a glimpse of your local nature. Where
appropriate, you should crop your photo... but we can do this for you.
Don't perform color correction unless you know what you are doing, and if
you do, go easy on it.|
|It is helpful if you tell us all that you can about your photo. Let
us know where it was taken, and what we are looking at. Let us know
all that you know about the animal, plant, or scene in the photo. Tell
us what kind of camera you were using, or other equipment. If you hid
for hours in a blind waiting for the elusive dodo bird, let us know how you
finally got the shot of a lifetime. We will be adding a
"how-to" section soon, and we would like to share any tips that
you might have for getting better nature photos.|
