If you’re at all interested in photography, GuruShots.com is well worth investigating.
It’s described as an online photography ‘game’ where each month a series of challenges based on themes, for example ‘Phenomenal Seascapes’, are set. As a game, there are obviously tactics in play and I’ll need to try a few challenges to see how votes can be maximised to boost rankings and #GuruShots points.
It’s free to join and you do need to be a member to enter challenges and other members vote on images. Although the number of votes required per rank change per challenge, the ranking order is as follows (high to low):
- All Star
- Not Ranked (yes, I guess this is a rank really but …. )
For most challenges you can enter 4 photographs and you can earn or buy ‘swaps’ to increase votes – testing different images in challenges may be beneficial for other challenges where the same image can be entered.
Anyways, some of the images uploaded are absolutely incredible – very impressive.
In due course, I’ll enter some of the challenges (as a newbie!) and it’ll be a great way to push myself to work harder at photography.
