    Hi Matt,

    do also photos taken with the phone qualify for the competition? or they have to be taken with "specialised" equipment (such as normal cameras)?

    Because I have a few photos shot with my note4, and they are quite OK.

    Greetings from Germany/Romania,

    Greetings from Sweden!

    Love your channel on YouTube, it's my go to guide for almost everything camera related! I'm not entering your Augusta contests but hope to get some advise.

    Anyhow, got the idea to do a photo shoot last Sunday and wanted to ask if you could give me some hints or just tell me that it's not for me and to stay out of it ;)
    Both me and my friend who modelled did it for the first time ever so don't expect wonders.

    To save time I can point out the obvious minuses I personally see and need to improve.

    1. Need to learn how to use a flash. All photos are shot without flash and then painted in Lightroom afterwards which I find gave a bit of an odd look. Also would have saved the skies from being that blown out.

    2. Quite heavy CA on some photos, read afterwards that the Batis 25 tend to do this fully opened but was a bit annoying to have ruined so many shots because of it.
    3. Focus. For some reason my a7r was struggling to get focus 100% accurate.

    Hope you could take just 2min of your time and then tell me what you think I need to improve.

    Many thanks,

    Hello Matt, its a great theme for this month's competition, really loved it and would also like to participate in it. But I've one question if I shoot anything in black and white on camera would that be accepted for the competition or not?

    Regards,
    Shiladitya Gupta
