Sony World Photography Awards and National Geographic Your Shot entries

Getting an early start on New Year’s resolution to enter more photography competitions to test myself further. I entered these three photos from our Machu Picchu trip to the Sony World Photography Awards :

OLLANTAYTAMBO / PERU, August 15, 2018 The condor, puma, and snake on this lamp in downtown Ollantaytambo represent the sky, earth and underworld in Inca tradition.
MACHU PICCHU / PERU, August 16, 2018 A llama rests amid the ruins of Machu Picchu.
MACHU PICCHU / PERU, August 16, 2018 A llama watches the terraces in the ruins of Machu Picchu.

Best wishes to you in YOUR 2019 photography adventures,

Susan

P.S. Update, just submitted the shots to National Geographic’s YourShot , we’ll see if they like it there…

I’m on Instagram now… Now what… ?

So I decided to explore the use of Instagram, with a goal to publicize my more editorial photos and make connections with other like-minded photographers, so I started an Instagram account and posted some of the editorial photos I’m most proud of. Check it out at https://www.instagram.com/susanmontgomeryphotos/.

This made me think some more about what my mission is as a photographer.  My current version is “I am a stock, travel and editorial photographer, with a goal to use my photography for social justice and to spotlight the best of Michigan and places I visit.” Needs work, but making progress.

I’m curious how others use Instagram… Any suggestions?

In the meantime,  best wishes on your photography adventures,

Susan

Update – Now I’m at “I’m a stock, travel and editorial photographer with a passion for social justice, the state of Michigan, and new places.”
