Weekly Photo Contest: Silhouettes

Some of the most striking photos come about when your subject is a silhouette. There's just something about this classic genre of photography that can set a mood or tell a story be it moody, dramatic, romantic, or what have you. So this week we want to see your best silhouettes, keeping in mind the subject doesn't have to be a person, it can be anything with the proper lighting.

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday August 26h at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! We had quite a few fantastic submissions, and chose two winners. Those winners are...

Weekly Photo Contest: Blur

Blurry shots are definitely not always a bad thing. Blur can be used in photography in so many ways. Whether to show motion or time lapse, bring attention to a detail, add an air of mystery, or just for a cool looking abstract shot, there are so many instances where a bit of blur is just what you need. This week we're focusing on just that.

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday August 19th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

Weekly Photo Contest: Up close and personal

Photo submission by buxna

It's been awhile since the Weekly Photo Contest focused on macro shots. There were so many up close and personal shots in last week's Birds and Bees contest, and they are just so fun to look at, so I figured it's a great time to revisit that format. So get in nice and close, take your best shot, and maybe you'll be the winner next week!

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday August 12th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

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!

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!

Make it artistic or make it a portrait, the choice is up to you, but be sure you submit your best work!

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!
