Weekly photo contest: Rule of thirds!
If you've followed along with our iPhoneography tutorials and guides in the past, you're probably already familiar with the rule of thirds and how it can help you take more interesting images that can help capture your audience's attention better. That's your task this week, to use the rule of thirds in your photos in order to create an amazing composition that catches our eye. Remember, the foreground is just as important as the background sometimes!
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, November 26th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, we'll be giving not one, but two winners their choice of a Mobile Nations prize pack that contains all kinds of goodies from your favorite sites! These packs include a coffee mug, stickers, pens, a t-shirt, and more! You'll get to choose which prize pack you'd like; iMore, CrackBerry, wpCentral, or Android Central!
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 particular contest, we recommend reading our rule of thirds lesson too.
