30 Amazing iPhone Photos With Excellent Exposure

Thank you for participating in our weekly iPhone photography contest. The contest theme this week was exposure, and any photos that demonstrated good exposure could be submitted. We had a wide range of excellent examples this week, from balanced exposures, to silhouettes, to high contrast black and white images. Here are my personal favorites this week.

How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we featured a tutorial covering 10 tips for taking beautiful iPhone photos of leaves. The article featured tips to help you capture color, texture and detail, as well as ideas for getting more creative such as photographing silhouettes, shadows and reflections. Many of these tips can also be applied to taking photos of plants in general.

Plants iPhone Photos 1

So the new contest theme is plants, and any photos of plants, trees, leaves or flowers can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSPlants tag on EyeEm. You can tag photos in the description field when you upload them, or when you edit the description of a photo that has already been uploaded (tap the three dots icon to edit a photo).

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please upload photos to EyeEm in full resolution and without any watermarks to make sure I can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, September 7.

    Gorgeous collection! Thank you Emil and Kate!

    • Thank you for entering your photos this week 🙂

  • Peggy

    Thank you so much! I’m honored to be included in this stunning group of photos.

    • Thank you for participating Peggy! It’s a great set of images this week isn’t it 🙂

  • Emre Orhan

    thanks!

  • Dave Rothschild

    So many great exposures(although it can be hard to tell how good an exposure is when you consider how much you can edit in the digital realm). My favorite is Atsash’s beach photo. The mood is soooooo beautiful yet atmospheric. And I love the curves the water makes along the shore

    • You can almost feel the weather in that photo can’t you – perfect exposure for that scene 🙂

    • atsash

      Thank you so much! That’s so nice to hear.

    • atsash

      Thanks so much Dave! I took an extended break from anything photo related (including reading articles on this site) so I didn’t realize you left this comment. I really appreciate your kind words. It’s especially humbling considering what a great photographer you are and how much I admire your work.

    Wow, some really great photos! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Out of curiosity, how come we use EyeEm as opposed to Instagram?

    • We used to use Instagram, but we find EyeEm easier for creating and organising the contest. Plus the photos don’t have to be square 😉

    • Another reason relates to upload quality. On Instagram all photos are saved at a tiny resolution, which makes it impossible to properly showcase the winners.

  • Jan Marco Tabamo

    how can i join the contest? 🙂

    • Hi Jan. The contest is held on EyeEm, so if you don’t already have an EyeEm account you’ll need to download the EyeEm app from the App Store and create a user account. You can then upload your photos to your EyeEm profile and tag them with the relevant contest tag as shown at the bottom of the contest results on here. Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any problems 🙂
