This year I am bound and determined to take as many photographs as possible. So that being said, if you are interested in getting a free session with Mark Laurin Photography, here are some rules – It’s a contest… There must be SOME rules 😉
1. “LIKE” MarkLaurinPhotography on Facebook. Here is the link ~ https://www.facebook.com/MarkLaurinPhotography
2. “Share” the Facebook post about this “BLOG Contest”.
3. When that is done. Comment “entered” on the Facebook post
First contest drawing date is April 5th, 2013.
I’ve just recently started this page and think we should kick it off with a good start.
Recently Photographers Connection had their weekly themed photo challenge. The theme was “Clocks”.
So, looking through my photos I stumbled onto this picture.
This was taken during some holiday weekend at a counter with a glass cased clock. I used a Canon T1i and a 50mm lens with the reverse macro technique! (It turned out AWESOME!)
With some quick colour enhancements I was really happy with the final result.
I found the photo and quickly uploaded it to the submissions for the contest. (which had some REALLY good photos entered as well).

The next day I got a message from my wife saying I won. “Won what?” I asked. “The cover photo!” she says! Here look!
I was absolutely speechless. What a way to start the week.
With a fan base of 20,000+ on Facebook and I have a cover photo. I’d say we are off to a good start!
Cheers ~ Mark
