    Default Weekly photo contest: Bokeh!

    Weekly photo contest: Bokeh!-photo_contest_bokeh_hero.jpg

    This week's photo contest is bokeh, which is just the common term for shallow depth of field. Everyone's seen it whether they know it or not. Popular examples are blurred lights in the background while the subject is in the foreground. It's typically a desired affect in portrait photography but has its place in other areas as well. Your challenge is to create bokeh in your photography in a tasteful and appropriate manner. And remember, post editing apps are okay as long as they are for iOS, in other words, no Photoshop!

    The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 28th at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

    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!

    The rules

    **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!

    Resources

    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.

    How to submit

    In order to submit your photos, simply attach them to this thread, that's it! If you don't have a computer handy, you can use the free Tapatalk for iPhone and iPad app to submit them.

    Please note that no photos submitted outside of this thread will be considered.

    There is a funny story behind this one. My mom sent me a photo from her iphone of a glass of wine at a winery in Napa Valley where she lives. The smarty pants that I am I sent a pic back of a wine glass with water from Ohio. I used my 4s and some editing from snapseed.

    I know this is kinda gross, but I got a pretty decent shot. I managed to cut myself while getting out of a friends car, and while walking took a quick photo to send to her. Turned out much better than I expected!

    This was taken on an iPhone 5S in the default Camera app. Slight adjustments to color balance and exposure was made in the VSCOcam app.

    No wonder dog's sense of smell is so much better than ours! I never realized it until I took this picture. Taken with the iPhone 5 and then cropped a bit to emphasize the clarity of his nose, and the little water droplet on his mouth.
