    Default Weekly Photo Contest: Back to School

    It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- Back to School! Summer vacation is coming to close (and already has for some students), which means it's time to get back in the classroom and hit the books. For this week's contest, we want you to take a photo that's somehow related to school whether it be a picture of your locker, a creative arrangement of all your supplies, a picture of your kid all dressed up for school, or a beautiful landscape of your campus -- we want to see it!

    The prize: 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!

    Resources

    Now, before you run off to take your photos, 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 take great looking portraits with your iPhone
    How to make your iPhone photography more striking with the “rule of thirds”
    How to make your iPhone photographs more powerful with negative space
    How to take amazing macro photos with your iPhone

    The contest begins now and ends next Monday, August 13 at 3p Pacific.

    I hated seeing this message on the chalk board when I was younger. This was taken at the school I work for. Yes, we still have chalk boards. ha!

    Tried taking these with proCamera. Just a few of my sons stationary for his first school year.


    This one was edited with snapseed to add a slight dramatic effect.

    It was tough to find a back to school subject but I found something! This is my trusty unofficial Hide&Seek Clothing mini notebook, AKA I was at the owners house, grabbed his stamp and stamped my notebook! Shot with Camera+, edited in Snapseed.

    Took this using the iPhone 4S, Camera+ and post-processing in Fotor with the Nostalgia Filter. I wanted to showcase what my desk may look like on any given school night.
