Experienced photographer with over 15 years of shootings.
Shallow depth of field is a great way to isolate your subject from its environment, and draw it into focus against an obscured background. This technique is used a lot in portrait, sports and macro photography, or any situation where you want to zero in on the action of your subject, or increase the amount of light going into your lens. This is a fun and creative technique, and a great skill to have in your armoury.
This competition is with a limited number of entries. This means that whenever the number of participants hits the limit, which for this contest is 1500 entries, the competition will be closed. The given time periods are an approximate estimate.
The crowd's winner will receive $50 store credit at Rocky Nook - one of the world's leading book publishers specialising in photography.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
Entries close at 1500 entries.
