They say a picture tells a thousand words.
Does your say “hopeless”?
Chopped off heads, blurry images, finger over the lens… would you make it onto the shortlist for the Northern Ireland’s worst photographer competition?
One local photography training company is searching for just that, in Northern Ireland’s first “Worst Photographer” competition.
Budding snappers can upload their entries to the PhototrainingNI Facebook page, where finalists will compete for the dubious honour of being crowned our worst photographer. The winner will be chosen by public vote and the prize is a top of the range camera and a day of photography training to brush up on their ‘skills’.
Local Going Digital franchisee, Paul Crawford, said;
“This isn’t about poking fun at people. I practice and teach photography for a living, but camera phones and social media have meant that photographs are now the way in which most of us document our daily lives from what we had for dinner to big family occasions and our children growing up.
I’m confident in our workshops that we can turn even the worst photographers into skilled snappers. It’s all about learning good technique and practice. Hopefully once our winner has been crowned and taught a few tricks of the trade, he or she will be able to snap those important occasions perfectly.”
