Over the years I’ve received a lot of submissions for Pics of the Day. In a move I should have thought of a long time ago, I’ve created a public Flickr group that people can submit their photos to.
I won’t guarantee that every shot submitted to it will be used, but I can guarantee that I will review everything in the group and will consider it. Here’s a few hints for the type of features I tend to like in the photos I select (usually one pic will not have all of this, but they represent the sort of thing I’ve noticed I tend to choose):
- Clearly focused
- Bright or strong colors
- Well staged (i.e., a scene of some sort)
- Dynamic posing and angles
- Catalog-style shots
Oh, and please remember to make your shots free to share, so that I can grab the HTML code for posting them on the site.
