It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- Silhouettes! Last week, we focused on shadows and many of our (very awesome) entries were technically silhouettes, so it was only natural for us to move specifically to silhouettes for this week! silhouettes are often times very moody, dramatic, and/or romantic and are classic genre of photography. Although classic, in continues to be a favorite style -- and we want to see your style!
Congrats to LaPs for winning last week's photo contest!
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 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.
