Clairemont Girls Fastpitch accepts photos for web site
publication in our photo galleries from all interested parties. There are
several criteria followed when selecting photos for publication.
Are the photos pertinent and of interest? Photos of
players, parents, or various league events are normally fine. There needs to be
some sort of tie-in to the league.
Photos must be in
good taste and appropriate. The webmaster reserves the right to exclude
photos that may be unduly embarrassing or otherwise inappropriate for our site.
Also, once a photo is posted the subject may object. At that point the
webmaster may remove that photo without notice to or consideration of the
Technical Considerations: We
understand that we have photographers of varying skill levels, and we welcome
everyone's photos, regardless of experience.
We do try to maintain a
minimum level of photographic quality for the CGFP web site, so please consider
the following factors when submitting photos:
Sharpness Is the subject of the photo in focus? Photos
that are not clear will be discarded.
Redundancy We have a finite amount of storage space on
our web server. If you took a series of shots that are very similar, please
submit only the best photo. We understand that it's pretty cool to see a
pitching sequence, especially if you have the rapid frame rate of a professional
camera. If you think it's a really great sequence, consider burning them to a
CD and providing it to the subject, rather than to this web site. If you are
really set on showing it to the world, consider one of the many photography web
sites, such as Flickr, PicasaWeb, Pbase, etc.
So how should I
submit my photo? This depends on your experience level.
Amateurs Please submit your photograph straight from the
camera. Don't attempt to resize, crop, color-shift, scale, compress, save-for-web, or otherwise process your photo. If you have many photos, it may take a
number of e-mail packages to send all of your photos. Take that as an
opportunity to select only your very best shots.
Professionals/Semi-Pros/Advanced Amateurs - We have at
least one photographer within our league whose work easily falls in the
professional class. He knows how to best crop for effect, and process/resize
the photo for web display. For this class of photographer, please submit your
web-ready photograph with a file size under 200 kilobytes, and a maximum pixel
height/width of 1920 pixels. Larger files will be acceptable for special event
photos, such as the Opening Day league group shot, etc. Though this is subject
to change, the default web page view is currently 550 px. Clicking on a photo
allows the viewer a full- size version, so 1920 px sizes are useful for those
who'd like to print the photo or investigate in greater detail. (If possible,
also retain the original file's Exif data.)
For any questions or
clarification on these guidelines, please contact the webmaster.
