Shooting Sports USA - December 2013 - 31

T

hanks to all who
submitted photos
for the inaugural
December cover
contest. Without
knowing the photographer or the
background information, senior
staff members from our Executive,
Photo, Art and Editorial Departments within the NRA Publications
Division nominated their favorites
from a pool of 23 submissions.
Their top choice received 4 points,
their second received 3 points,
and so on. With a tie for third, we
felt the top two nominations were
clear favorites and made the final
selection accordingly.
The nominations from parents,
coaches, shooters and public
relations staff reflect the "heart
and soul" of the shooting sports-
people who devote and share
their time for the overall benefit of
the sport. Thank you from everyone here at the NRA Publications
Division. The five finalists will
receive a cover photo mock-up
for their trophy wall.

SOME LESSONS
LEARNED:
Orientation:
Some submissions were
horizontally oriented (landscape
mode). This means much of the
photo must be cropped (cut off)
to fit the vertical (portrait) cover
format. Please tip your camera
on its side when taking cover
photo candidates.
Composition:
Please note any "clutter"
in the photo and retake photos

as you deem necessary. Here
in Publications, we typically
notice this while previewing
the photo in the camera display-
like a towel in the foreground
or a tree that appears to be
growing out of the top of
someone's head.
Resolution:
For the larger cover photo,
we need a lot of pixels to
avoid a grainy appearance.
Please adjust your camera to
its highest resolution and
answer "no" if your e-mail
program attempts to reduce
the size when sending it to
us. Alternately, send us the
original printed photo for
us to scan.

Winning Photo:

Matches Junior Smallbore
Camp, Petrarca Range, Camp

camp to improve their shooting
skills. (Despite the move of the
Smallbore National Matches to
Bristol, IN, in 2014, the Junior
Smallbore Camp will remain at
Camp Perry and will be conducted during the pistol phase
in July.) Photo by Russ Evans.
