Photo Techniques: Entering competitions by Colin Doeg

With the competition season in full swing, we are delighted to benefit from the wisdom and advice on offer from Colin, our Chairman. Colin will discuss competitions as both judge and competitor. It is not possible to pay full tribute to the vast wealth of knowledge and experience held by Colin in this brief forum. As one of the founding members of BSoUP back in 1967, along with Peter Scoones, he was the original Chairman. Since then, he has continued to pursue the art with passion and commitment with long involvement in countless competitions, articles, magazines, books, conferences and meetings. Last year, while Master of Ceremonies at the annual London conference, he was awarded the first ever Visions in the Sea Award for outstanding contributions to Underwater Photography and is
currently contributing editor to Dive magazine, also writing the monthly 'Big Shot' feature.

Focus On Competition: Wide-angle

Photographs taken with lenses with focal lengths of 35mm or wider. 35mm slides only at present.
