April 11, 2019 Saguaro CC Competition Opening & Closing Date/Time
The April 11, 2019 Monthly Competition Opens January 28, 2019 at 8:00AM and Closes on March 31, 2019 at midnight. PLEASE GET YOUR IMAGES IN ON TIME PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY! This month's theme is High Key, see definition below. This theme will be the ACCC Fall 2019 Rotating theme. High Key photography uses unnaturally bright lighting to blow out most or all harsh shadows in an image. High key methods were originally developed as a solution to screens that couldn't properly display high contrast ratios, but has developed into more of a stylistic choice. High Key images usually convey a positive or upbeat tone. This method is perfect for a subject that is funny, lighthearted or beautiful. High key images are regularly used for model photography, flowers and other subjects that are relatively feminine in nature. Another area perfect for high key is product photography. Practically speaking, the bright nature of the photo really highlights the product and can make for some great attention-grabbing contrast. Psychologically speaking, a product shown on white tends to suggest that it is high quality or upscale in nature. High key can be in Mono or Color. NOTE: Your images must be .jpg files. Image size remains unchanged--Maximum dimensions are 1400 pixels on horizontal side and 1050 pixels on the vertical side and maximum file size is 1MB. You will receive an error message if your images are not sized properly. In addition, special characters such as , ; : # & \ ? ‘ are not allowed in your image titles that should be 35 characters or less. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPELLING. MY 3RD GRADE TEACHER MRS. PEARSON WOULD ROLL OVER IN HER GRAVE IF SHE WERE TO SEE SOME OF YOUR TITLES.
March 14, 2019 Saguaro CC Competition Opening & Closing Date/Time
The March 14, 2019 Monthly Competition Opens February 15, 2018 at 8:00AM and Closes on March 10, 2019 at midnight. PLEASE GET YOUR IMAGES IN ON TIME PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY! This month's assigned theme is PSA PID Monochrome (i.e., black & white). The theme is PSA PID Open and there are no processing restrictions other than those described below. An image is Monochrome only if it gives the impression of having no color (i.e. contains only shades of gray (or any one color) which can include pure black and pure white); OR it gives the impression of being a grey scale image that has been toned in one color across the entire image. (For example, via Sepia, red, gold, etc.). A monochrome image may be "High Key"; one that is almost entirely very bright with very little or no dark shadows present. This is usually a creative decision made by the photographer, in order to create a certain airy and/or light mood in the image. A monochrome image may be "Low Key"; one that contains predominantly dark tones. Like high-key images, they convey atmosphere and mood. But where a high-key image feels airy and light, a low-key is usually moody, dramatic and full of mystery. NOT ALLOWED: A grey scale or multi-colored image modified or giving the impression of having been modified by partial toning, multi-toning or by the inclusion of spot coloring does not meet the definition of monochrome and shall be disqualified. NOTE: Your images must be .jpg files. Image size remains unchanged--Maximum dimensions are 1400 pixels on horizontal side and 1050 pixels on the vertical side and maximum file size is 1MB. You will receive an error message if your images are not sized properly.  In addition, special characters such as , ; : # & \ ? ‘ are not allowed in your image titles that should be 35 characters or less. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPELLING. MY 3RD GRADE TEACHER, MRS. PEARSON, WOULD ROLL OVER IN HER GRAVE IF SHE WERE TO SEE SOME OF YOUR TITLES.
55th Annual Lost Dutchman Days Rodeo
This is the 55th Annual Lost Dutchman Days Rodeo aka "AJ Rodeo". This rodeo overlaps the Casa Grande Ranch Rodeo on February 23-24, 2019. I try to make both by juggling the days which makes for a weekend of rodeo and some great shot opportunities. Last year, I went to the AJ rodeo on Sunday and missed an unscheduled stage coach accident at the Ranch Rodeo. You never know what will happen. The AJ Rodeo is a favorite of a lot of our club members. I like to shoot from the top row of the grandstand just in front of the bucking chutes. I use my TAMRON 18-400mm and do a lot of burst shooting.
Casa Grande Ranch Rodeo
The Casa Grande Ranch Rodeo was described under the O'odham Tash Rodeo on February 16-17, 2019 Calendar. The image shown here is from the O'odham Tash Rodeo Wild Horse Race. The events in the Ranch Rodeo are primarily working ranch type events. The bronc riding is with a traditional working saddle rather than the cut down saddles normally seen. And, there is no bull riding. There are a lot of events during the week between these two rodeos and a small carnival provides for great night shooting of ride lights.
