It is that time again — NikoniansPress/Rocky Nook author Darrell Young is preparing his latest book — Mastering the Nikon D7100
All of Darrell's books in the Mastering the Nikon DSLR series have included images provided by our members and he wants to continue the tradition with the upcoming Mastering the Nikon D7100. The submitted images must be in VERTICAL (portrait) format because they are used to start each chapter in the book.
Basically, to keep from having to list an enormous number of things, the bottom line is we want the image you submit to show what a skilled photographer can do with a Nikon D7100. It needs to have a certain “wow” factor so that it doesn’t appear to be a snapshot.
All members who have a vertical image included in the book will receive a free copy of Mastering the Nikon D7100 and be listed in a special Credits for Chapter Opening Images section of the book, with information on the tech specs (ISO, lens, aperture, shutter speed, shooting conditions, and a paragraph telling about the picture).
Each photographer selected will also have a credit inserted beneath the submitted picture at its location in the book.
It all starts here in this discussion thread. Post your best shots here (no need to be huge as long as they are taken with a D7100). The publication team will review the submitted VERTICAL images before the book goes to print and will contact members whose image has been accepted for publication in Mastering the Nikon D7100. At that time formatting instructions will be given for the final submission.
Horizontal images cannot be accepted because they do not fit the vertical format of the book.
Here are some of subjects that have a high level of interest for possible publication:
--Cute child’s face with an uncluttered background, prefer shallow depth of field. --Wildlife (action or static. We always like to have a tracked subject for the chapter on AF) --Pet animal closeups without distracting elements --Beautiful woman shot (PG rated) --Handsome man shot (PG rated) --Sports (group action) --Sports (action closeup) --Motorsports (cycle, car, airplane, etc.) --Closeups or macro (well executed of an interesting subject) --Still life (interesting arrangements of objects) --Landscapes and nature scenic (beauty in nature)
The Nikonians editorial team thanks you in advance for your submissions. ---Tom
