Get out your cameras, grab that cute cloth diaper baby of yours and get into nature! It's time for the Fluff in Nature photo contest!
Fluff Fest is here and we here at Happily Domestic are so excited! To make this cloth diaper event a little more special I thought it would be fun to have a photo contest. My friend Vilate, from Nifty Nappy cloth diapers has kindly offered to sponsor this contest. There will even be 2 winners!!! Here are the official rules....
- Only one picture can be submitted per household
- All entries must be received no later than 8pm (MST) on August 20th 2011
- Photos should be photo shoot quality, but not professionally taken (we want pictures taken by you!)
- Must show Fluff, not just cute babies! (ANY CLOTH DIAPER BRAND/STYLE IS OKAY)
- Please include your child's first name, age and your email address along with photo
- Email all entries to FluffInNature@yahoo.com
- Winners will be chosen by Vilate of Nifty Nappy Cloth Diapers and announced on this blog on August 31st.
- All contest photos will be made into a fun cloth diaper slideshow and be posted on Happily Domestic as well as You Tube
Tips for great photos:
- Take pictures in morning or afternoon light
- Have an idea of what type of picture you want beforehand
- Make sure baby is well rested
- Edit your photos! Picnik and Google's Picasa are great free resources for picture editing and effects.
- Avoid cluttered backgrounds- your focus should be on the baby not background images.
- Be creative! Two of the 4 pictures I took of my son (above collage) have won cloth diaper photo contests. Sometimes thinking outside the box really pays off!
