I have a quick blog post to let you know that we are in the final stretch of accepting submissions for NEBRASKAland Magazine’s Photo Contest. Have you entered yet? You should!

NElandphotocontest

This contest is open to all NEBRASKAland Magazine subscribers regardless of age or skill level in photography! However, those of you who want to submit photos, but don’t get the magazine can subscribe and then enter. There are a variety of adult categories and a couple youth categories as well.

Your photo entry qualifies you for a chance to be published in the NEBRASKAland Magazine, plus win fantastic prizes from us at the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission and our friends at Rockbrook Camera.

Photos must be received on or before Sunday, June 15.  Complete details and information on how to submit are here.

Just remember, outdoor photography is fun, even with your camera phone! For me, it’s a great excuse to get outside and enjoy wildlife, fish, parks, landscapes, flora, sunrises, sunsets, and everything else that makes up our natural world, and yes, people, too!

Someone asked me the other day what my secret was to taking good photographs. My answer: I am not an expert photographer whatsoever, but my secret is to shoot a lot of images from a bunch of different perspectives! I often find that I like only one in about three or four dozen shots I have taken of a particular subject such as this male wood duck.

So, grab your digital camera, get out there, have fun shooting pics, subscribe to the magazine and bring on your best ones! We’d love to see them!
