Weekly photo contest: Portraits!!
If you look through the Camera Roll of your iPhone or iPad, I'd be willing to be that the most common subjects are people. From taking photos of our children to snapping shots of our loved ones at social events. Hey, even selfies count! This week that's your task. Take a great portrait shot either of yourself or of someone else! That's all there is to it!
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, March 18th at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...
I picked the above photo because I felt it was the most natural display of the bokeh effect. The position of the shoes is well done as is the focus. Great job forum member jnportfolio! We'll be contacting you shortly to claim your prize!
And without any further delay, here are the details on this week's photo contest...
The prize: $25 iTunes gift card!
The winner of this week's photo contest will receive a $25 iTunes gift card to help them load up on all the photo apps they want, or any other kind of apps for that matter!
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. For this contest specifically, you can even check out our guide on creating better portrait shots:
