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!

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

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!
