Staff Photo Spotlight: Nicole Horne


This month’s Staff Photo Spotlight is on Nicole Horne. Nicole is a Physical Therapy Aide in our Holladay, Utah Clinic. Nicole’s photo was chosen for the month of September in our 2018 Calendar.

Nicole captured this serene scene while she was out for a morning hike with her dog at Moon Lake in the Uinta Mountains. Just moments before taking the shot, a couple of mule deer bucks walked by and hung around for nearly a half hour before moving on. What a cool experience! I think we can say for most everyone, that we wish we were there! Nicole, Thanks for submitting this great shot to the Staff Photo Contest and congratulations on the well-deserved win. Be sure to keep taking photos on your adventures! Who knows, you might just win again!

Here are some tips for making a winning photo:

 

Get people in your photo, but capture them in an activity, not just smiling for the camera. Silhouettes and shots from behind are great because it lets people imagine they are there in the scene.

Only submit wide (landscape) orientation photos. Tall (portrait) orientation photos don’t fit in our calendar template.

Submit the best quality, highest file-size copy you have. Instagram photos look great on phones but they are much too small for printing on a calendar.

Our team is comprised of talented people that maintain active lifestyles, and we want to capture that in this year’s contest. We look forward to seeing all of your amazing images, good luck!
