Seeing my work in print.
I learned of Shots Magazine earlier this year, and after doing a little research about how it’s published, decided to subscribe. 4 issues annually for $29.
The good folks at shotsmag.com describe the magazine as “a beautifully printed black & white quarterly in world gone digital, not an on-line publication.”
Each quarterly issue revolves around a theme and subscribers can submit 8 images per issue for free.
Well, not exactly free – I figured it averages out to $7.25 an issue and a decent chance at seeing one of my pictures in a magazine.
I whiffed on my first issue’s theme, which was “Offerings,” then spazzed out on the Spring 2018 theme “Self-portraits.” It wasn’t until until the issue arrived in my mailbox that it dawned on me to submit a picture I made for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2017 titled “My shadow over rocks.”
The newest issue’s theme is “Forces of Nature” and I entered 3 black and white pieces I’d taken over the last year or so. One of them made it in the Summer issue. I titled the picture “Thistles” for submission. It was taken while wandering around Georgetown, Tx for Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk back on October 7, 2017.
The theme for the Fall issue is “Home.”
