Weekly photo contest: Perspective!

How we take a photo can dramatically alter the resulting image. Sometimes simply snapping something from a different angle can make an okay photo an amazing one. When looking at building, landscapes, and other subjects, it really is all about perspective. This week we want you to go out and look at things a little differently. Try experimenting with different angles and styles. You may be surprised what you come up with!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 15th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Professional sports are one of the most photographed activities on the planet. With the World Cup currently going on, we figured what a better time to get you guys out taking some action shots than now?

Any sport is fair game too so get out there and snap something amazing!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 8th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Coffee!

Coffee is a cultural staple in almost every country. Almost everywhere you turn there are coffee shops lining every block. Great conversation and great ideas often come from coffee time with friends, or even when we are alone with our thoughts. So that's the topic of this week's photo contest, coffee. Make it artistic or make it a portrait, the choice is up to you, but be sure you submit your best work!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 1st at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Transit!

Odds are you've been on a train, plane, bus, or some other kind of transit before. For many of us, it's a daily part of how we get from point A to point B. Transit systems and the people that use them can make for amazing photographs as well. So your task this week is to grab an amazing shot with the subject being some kind of public transit. Perhaps it's an interesting person you met on the subway, or a dark tunnel with a train emerging. The choice is yours, just be sure you submit your best work!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 24th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Clouds!

When shooting a photo outside, we quickly realize how important of a role the sky plays in how our picture turns out. Clouds are a huge part of that landscape and sometimes their presence can make or break a great photo opportunity. That's your task this week! Find a photo that you've taken — or snap a new one — that just wouldn't be the same without clouds in the sky.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 17th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Reflections!

Reflections make for a very unique subject in photos. Whether the reflection is in a mirror, water, glass window, or something else, it can add an element to a photo that makes it stand out. Your task this week is to use reflections to your advantage. The win this week will go to the person who can capture an image that just wouldn't be the same unless that reflection was exactly as it was.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 27th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Storms!

Whether you love them or hate them, one thing all areas of the world face occasionally are storms. While they can ruin your afternoon park outing rather quickly, they make for amazingly beautiful photos. From a thunder head rolling in over a lake to dark skies over endless fields, storms create powerful images. This week your task is to capture a storm photo — while staying safe of course. Feel free to use one you've captured in the past if you'd like as well!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 20th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Filters!

Filters are not only fun to use, they add something unique that distinguishes your photo of something from everyone else's. They also make it easier to be creative and really think outside the box when editing a photo. Sometimes applying filters on top of filters can turn something dull into something amazing. While filters aren't appropriate for every photo we take, they have their place. That's your task this week. Snap a photo and experiment with filters. Be sure to submit the ones you just don't think would be the same without filter effects!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 13th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly Photo Contest: Bokeh!

This week's photo contest is bokeh, which is just the common term for shallow depth of field. Everyone's seen it whether they know it or not. Popular examples are blurred lights in the background while the subject is in the foreground. It's typically a desired affect in portrait photography but has its place in other areas as well. Your challenge is to create bokeh in your photography in a tasteful and appropriate manner. And remember, post editing apps are okay as long as they are for iOS.

Weekly Photo Contest: Weather!

No matter what part of the world you're in, the weather changes all around us. For some of us that means massive amounts of rain or snow right now while for others it means awesome fall colors. Your goal for this week is to get out there and capture striking images of the weather around you. Just taking a photo out your window won't do. The prize will go to the person that combines all they've learned in our iPhoneography series in order to blow us away.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 21st at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
