Photography at Nationals.

Recommended Posts

I just go a new camera and was thinking of volunteering for the photographing crew in San Marcos.  Before I went to all that trouble I thought I would ask what format the contest prefers and how they want to download them.  I have a new Sony Alpha 7II and wanted to practice before hand if they accept me as a volunteer.

I headed this last year.  The preferred format is JPG.  Size is not as important as they will be resized before uploading to the website.  Size only becomes an issue in how long it takes to transfer the files from you to me.  Most cameras now use SanDisk cards but I have a multi-card reader if you have something offbeat.  We usually determine a time and place to meet to transfer what you have to date and one to two meetings usually covers it.

Thanks Rick.  My camera uses an SDXC card and I think I will get a separate one for the event.  Other than that, nothing here I didn't expect.  I assume that you have a tally sheet to match photo numbers to model numbers?  

Oh and by the way, how does one go about volunteering for this.  My preference would be to assigned to category V(automotive) but if I volunteer will go where needed.  Thanks for the reply.

Until I or someone is 'officially' in charge, you just need to keep your offer out there.  Last time we did have people focusing on particular categories but I also took whatever they shot and were willing to share.  This is especially important if a category is not picked up by someone.  Everyone's contribution goes into those.

No tally sheet is used since we have no need to match up photos like they do for the awards program.

Ok Rick,  I will keep the offer open and am still trying to get setup to go.  I have a couple of health issues that should be resolved soon that have nothing to do with the current pandemic, but we will see.  Hope to see you there.
