Weekly Photo Contest: Sexy Beach!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- and the winner of last week's gadget photography contest. Before I do, I want to congratulate everyone on their awesome entries. We've got some talented iPhoneographer readers here at iMore and it wasn't an easy decision!

And the winning entry is...

...this awesome photo of SimpleAsItSeems's Nikon FE with a 50mm 1.8 Series E lens! The high contrast between the camera and everything else made for a perfect black and white conversion. Great work SimpleAsItSeems!

SimpleAsItSeems took this photo with an iPhone 4S and edited it with Camera+ and VSCO CAM.

This week's contest: Sexy Beach!

We're in the middle of summer which means trips to beaches, lakes, rivers, and just about any body of water we can find. And what do you get when you combine the hot summer sun with water? Half-naked hot bodies! Need we say more? Let's see those sexy beach photos! Now, by "beach", we don't actually mean only the beach -- we're really just looking for an excuse to see sexy bodies -- both male and female! As always, be creative with your photos and find some sexy angles!

Seriously, though, be tasteful. Keep it PG-13, please.

The prize: Glif tripod mount and stand!

In addition to a thumbs up from the iMore crew and all of us yelling about how great of a photo star you are, the winner of this week's photography contest will receive a Glif tripod mount and stand!

The rules

The rules of entry are very simple. The photo must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (we'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify) and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop CS6! If you have external lens accessories you are more than welcome to use them. You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!


Now, before you run off to take your photo, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win.

However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out these articles from our iPhone photography series for some tips.

How to submit

Submitting your photos is easy. just head over to the iMore Photography Forum and post your photos to the official contest thread. Don't forget to state which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!

The girl in the photos is my sister, so any and all disgusting comments will be removed. You can complement, but don't be vulgar.

Expects internet to be nice


KoreyAusTex says:

She is stunning but I am stunned that you would put a picture of your sister up?

gthugball1n says:

you seemed to have missed my point... but ill let you be

now that i read again.. not sure if you're posting to OP or me... hrmm

FlopTech says:

Wow. Your family has good genes!

demontooth says:

Your sister is a hottie. Seriously, I thought that was a swimsuit model.

Leanna Lofte says:

Which I why I went right to her for pics :)

leathernuts#WP says:

WOW- Ill keep it at that. ;)

KCMike says:

Keep the contents coming. Although, I'm a bit bummed for this one as I'm nowhere near the beach (maybe a lake beach? hmm ...). The Midwest can be so boring.

edit - Nevermind. I just noticed it doesn't have to be on the beach,

PS - Your sister is a doll.

Leanna Lofte says:

Yep! You can be at a beach, lake, river, pool, whatever :)

Leanna Lofte says:

In fact, the pictures of my sis were at a lake :)

KCMike says:

That's a good point. I'll have to see if I have time on this one (as well as upcoming contents). I enjoyed the Car Contest but have yet to submit anything since then.

And, um, I'll go ahead & ask. Any other photos of your sis? :P

WrathPaine says:

Might as well have a disclaimer: This week's contest not available for the Seattle area. (Have you seen our forecast these days? Half-naked hot bodies around here means we're just lucky to see anyone wearing shorts. With a hoodie.)

Wow, Leanna, anyone in your family not photogenic? That's just crazy.

KCMike says:

It's 108 here in the midwest. I think I'd rather it be cloudy. :(

iphone22 says:

To bad weather out here hasn't been that great to hit the lake, beach, river, pool...But your sister does look beautiful.

tlo07 says:

I wish I looked like that in a bikini!

nickpthemft says:

Your sister looks like Georgia. Kinda. Which is a good thing!

Duvi says:

At first glance, I too thought that was Georgia. She is gorgeous Leanna.

kayno says:

thought it was georgia as well..

MightyMac says:

Hope you had a waterproof case. I'm nervous just thinking about it..

Freiteez says:

So you must be or know someone sexy to be in this contest? No guarantees haha

SimpleAsItSeems says:

How do I claim my prize for winning last week's contest?

Ommadawn says:

It's winter here....

dfb8085 says:

You and your sister both are gorgeous. Certainly would be proud to have either of you on my arm
