You don't need a room full of professional lighting equipment to capture great portraits - a single strobe of flash can be just as effective. It's more than possible to create a wide variety of lighting scenarios with just one bulb, but it helps to do some research first. There are plenty of online tutorials to get you started, such as this one on DIY Photography. Your perfect flash portrait is well within your reach!

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.
