Photo Contest: Show us your best Camera Remote shots with Apple Watch!

We love taking pictures with our iPhone here at iMore, and adding an Apple Watch into the fray has been an awesome new tool for iPhone photography. As such, we'd love to see any images you've taken with your iPhone and the Apple Watch's Camera Remote feature. Post them to Instagram and include the #shotonapplewatch hashtag, and we'll feature the very best on next Monday.

The prize

The winner this week is going to take home a Glif Tripod Mount and Stand (opens in new tab) and a $25 iTunes gift card! This is the perfect combo for setting up the perfect shot and snagging some awesome photo editing apps to fine tune your pictures.

The rules

Submitted photos must have been taken with an iPhone via Apple Watch. If you don't know how to shoot a picture using your Watch, here's a quick video demo!

  • Here's the link to mine. Took this during the first couple of days with the watch. Still one of my favourite features. Just used the standard photos app. Great for editing images on the go without any additional fancy bells and whistles Sent from the iMore App
    Love my apple watch ... Went wine tasting with my dad and his 9 month old Golden Doodle... It works great for pet shots. The first shot makes a noise which got the puppy to look right at the phone and I was able to use the 3s timer perfectly
  • Went to a farm here in England today and used the remote shutter on my 42mm Space Grey  watch sport to nab a picture of a very camera-shy Rhea bird. It seemed really sad that the others had eaten all the seed. We cheered him up with a fresh handful shortly after I got this shot. Just auto enhanced via the photos app on iPhone 6 plus. I've found the remote camera app very useful for candid shots,
  • Here's mine! I propped my iPhone against the TV cabinet and waited for Maxie to notice and check it out. I used the stock camera app and edited with Camera+.
  • I forgot to say that I have the 38mm Space Grey Sport with a black sport band.
  • iPhone 6 Plus propped against a backpack...
  • Shot on a iPhone 6 Plus (gold, 64 gb) using an Apple Watch Sport with white band as the remote shutter. iPhone was on a magnetic Joby tripod hung upside down from a metal light. Photo edited in Retouch and sized in Instasize.
    Hi, I used an Iphone5s with an apple watch sport 42mm blue band and edited with PStouch and the Nike+ app. Love using the Apple watch while on Runs or at the Gym :D insta: @aveagohero
  • Cool! Have you found out exactly what counts as "exercise" in the Activity Ring? I can log an exercise, such as a walk, in the Workout app, but it doesn't record as Exercise. I went on a 1 mile hike yesterday and it only registered as 7 out of 30 min...LOL.
  • Hi, I used iPhone 6 Plus / 42mm black Stainless / filtered with native IOS photo edit / taking in Chicago Maggie Daley Park / @Mints2u
  • Finally have my 42mm Silver Sport with a white band. I used a plastic cup as a tripod for my iPhone 6. Then made a few edits with the photos app and Instagram.
