    Default Weekly Photo Contest: Shadows!

    It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- Shadows! For many photos, shadows are a curse and photographers do everything in their power to avoid harsh shadows. But for other photos, it's the shadows that really *make* the photographs and add drama and mood to the pictures. This is what we want to see this week -- get creative with shadows!

    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 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 20 at 5p Pacific.

    Ok just one more....big thanks to my friend Justin who had moved this patio chair the night before into this exact spot to create this very happy accident. One of my favorite photos that I've ever taken with my iPhone because, coincidentally, it happened to be Memorial Day!

    Shot on an iPhone 4 with Camera+, and then brought into Filterstorm to mask some stray light that was on the right side of the frame.

    "Driving"

    Taken with an iPhone 4S
    Edited with iPhoto on the iPad
    Merged together with diptic on the iPad

    Perhaps more silhouette than shadow, but I like it.

    Edit: it doesn't seem to link for some reason. Try this:

    Okay, so I am having a hard time getting this to work from my iPad, but them's the breaks when you try to go post-PC:

    This one is "Indiana Jones"



    This one is "Farmer Kate"
