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!

It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

Congrats to forum member e1miran on snagging a win in our sports contest. What really draw my attention to this particular photo was the composure and the way the light is captured. Post editing was also done tastefully. Great job! We'll be contacting you shortly to collect your prize!

Now on to the details of this week's photo contest...

The prize: Mobile Nations prize pack!

If you snag a win in this week's photo contest, you'll be rewarded with a prize pack filled with goodies from your favorite Mobile Nations site. You can pick which prize pack you'd like and we'll fill it with all kinds of swag from coffee cups, post it notes, stickers, and more!

The rules

Submitted photos 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, Lightroom, or other external editing programs! If you have external lens accessories such as an Olloclip or other snap-on lens, 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 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 what device you have and which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!
