Thank you to all of you who took part in our weekly iPhone photography contest. This week’s contest theme was Water and we had over 500 beautiful iPhone photos submitted. The photo feed was a stunning array of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, ocean, water droplets, puddles, reflections and more. It was very difficult to select just a few winners from all these great entries, but here are my personal favorites this week.
Which one of these photos is your favorite? Please let everyone know in the comments!
How to Enter the Next Photo Contest
Last week we published a tutorial on challenging your creativity by changing your point of view when taking iPhone photos.
The article pointed out that our natural instinct is to take photos from a standing position and at eye level because this is how we see the world. But by positioning yourself in a different place you can capture your subject in a more interesting and unique way.
Try shooting from a low angle looking up at your subject, or get high up and shoot down for a bird’s eye view. Look inside or underneath your subject. Walk around your subject to find the angle with the most unique perspective. It may be the side or rear view that’s the most intriguing.
So the new contest theme is Angle, and any iPhone photos taken from a more interesting angle than shooting straight forward at eye level can be submitted. So get creative with those angles and perspective – try to photograph your subject from a unique or interesting viewpoint.
To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSAngle 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 we can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.
The submission deadline is Sunday, January 18.
