2015 Beretta.Net Calendar Submissions!

Postby Styluss » Mon Sep 22, 2014 11:39 am

That's right folks it's time to start getting the 2015 Beretta.net calendar rolling so we can have it ready for Christmas!
For any newcomers to the community every year we take submissions and then vote as a community on which photos will be included in that year's calendar. So shine up that old girl and grab the camera before the weather sets in and get some great shots to submit for voting!

There are always some minor exceptions, but these are some general guidelines:

Please include your member name, your real name and location (city state) when submitting your photo. Also, please include what you would like your car listed as; model, year, engine, transmission, etc. The minimum to be included is the year, model and engine. Send all submissions to: Stylusskid@msn.com

Submission will be accepted starting now and through October 12th at midnight MST. I think this should be more than enough time for everyone to get ready. I must have a minimum of 12 (duh!) good pictures to make this work, so everybody get out there and shoot! You're welcome to change your submission at any time... just e-mail me a different picture and notify me of the change. There will be NO deadline extensions. So everybody get out there and shoot! And remember, Corsicas are more than welcome!

Voting will commence on Monday, October 20th and will end on November 2nd at Midnight MST. This will give me and Woody enough time to get it all sorted out, edited and complete for ordering in time for Christmas!

REMEMBER, we're a mighty picky group these days... This photo should be top notch!
Here are a few pointers from numerous members over the last few years:

- Location. Pick somewhere unique and exciting... your driveway doesn't cut it.
- Lighting. Early or late in the day is best for natural light. Midday sun is flat and doesn't provide much shadow or detail. Colors get washed out.
- Get rid of the junk. Crop out or use Photoshop to remove distractions. There are several members that can help with this. I can assist a bit and if you would like something specific done just mention it when you submit your photo.
- Clouds are your friend. Clear skies may be great for going to the beach, but your pictures will be more interesting with clouds.
- Mergers. Watch out for for two or more objects overlapping... such as a light pole coming out the hood of a car.
- Angles. Get high up or low to the ground. If you take a picture of a car from standing height, it's probably going to look like any other snapshot.
- Get closer! You're taking a picture of the car, not all the crap around it. Unless you're trying to show the scale of the scenery, get close and show us the car!
- Color. This goes along with light; washed out pictures are lame-o. Vivid colors = excitement!
- Photo Quality. Dude, that old bar phone from 1996 isn't going to cut it. We have image size and resolution requirements that are posted below.
- Pictures must be of high quality. Cropped to 8.5x11 at 300 dpi, or 1280x800 resolution minimum. Better yet, just set your camera to the highest quality it can take and submit that. Any pictures with insufficient resolution will not be accepted, and the member will be notified. It is 2014 and everybody should have a decent camera nowadays of at least 5 Megapixels.

As always, I'm more than happy to completely rip apart... I mean critique your submission if you would like some thoughts from a 5 time calendar winner!
Let's do it! I expect to have A LOT MORE submissions to choose from this year with the reasonable growth the community has seen.

I'm hoping it won't be like last year with all of the submissions at the last minute.

Remember people, if you'd like a good shot that can really get some attention, take your time with the photo taking and plan ahead! Two weeks left!

Styluss, how many submissions do you have in so far, BTW?
