    Wayne and I have been looking at the requirements for the photos needed for judging the current, and future Group Builds, and Wayne has designed a very clear, and simple guide, which should illustrate exactly what is needed, and should be posting this within the next couple of days.
    Basically, as will be shown in the 'guide', SIX pics will be required, at the approximate angles shown in Wayne's guide, plus up to another four of your choice.
    Also, the judging criteria is just about finalised, and should ensure fare and impartial judgement across the board. Basic details of this will be posted nearer the end-date of the current GB which, it seems to be agreed, will remain as the end of April for this current build.
    It will be probable that a 'Gallery' of pics will be posted after the 'winners' have been announced, so that selected shots all models entered will be available for viewing in one place.
    To assist with the photography, for those of you who might have a few qualms in this region, I hope to 'publish' my 'Photography Guide' here by the end of next week, or the middle of the following week, at the latest. Although the first section of this may, at first, seem a little 'heavy', it is neccessary, in order to set 'the scene' for the techniques etc described later in the guide. Hopefully, it might help in allowing some to produce the required standard of photo.
    Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. If I can't answer, I'll make sure I find someone who can, and will get back to you.
    Thanks for your cooperation and fantastic enthusiasm to date.
    Terry.

    Ok here is the...hopefully simple Photo Guide PDF for you guys to follow.

    Just a slight tweek to Terry's note...we require SIX compulsory images as shown on the PDF.
    The RED arrows show the 6 angles required, to be clear, each of these SIX should be taken above the model at approximately between 30 and about 45 degrees....Front (1) and Rear (2) and 3/4 views front (3,4)and back (5,6).

    You are then permitted FOUR additional and optional shots from any angle or height to further show off your model.

    Question: What would be the MINIMUM size for these pics? I was going to go with 800 px width - I'm not sure how to do that thing where the pics are loaded small but you can click to enlarge.

    The computer automatically will resize the pics if u link them to the page Chris... If u post em they are the original size....

    My pics were 1000xwhatever, and I think 800x600 will be just fine....

    That's right Alex. The required six shots as shown in Wayne's PDF, then, if you want to, any 4 extra shots, just to show, perhaps, bits you like, or think might be of interest, or perhaps maybe an atmospheric shot, or one which makes the model look real. Whichever you choose, but only the 6 'official' pics will be used for judging purposes.
