Portraits using flash

In association with Rocky Nook

Open Rating Results

This contest is open to subscribers (members on the Challenger, Pro and Master subscription tiers). However if you're not a paying subscriber you can still purchase entries for £2 (GBP) per image.

When it comes to portrait photography, lighting is everything - just ask selfie queen Kim Kardashian who said that, well, "Lighting is everything". A camera's flash can sometimes be quite harsh, or be seen as a quick fix to fill in natural shadows, but it can achieve some great effects when used thoughtfully and in the right contexts. Focus on getting a strong, balanced exposure with your flash and the awesome portraits will follow.

We have $100 USD of Rocky Nook store credit to giveaway to our two winners!

Prize details

The expert judge's winner and the crowd's winner will both receive $50 store credit at Rocky Nook - one of the world's leading book publishers specialising in photography.

How it works

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.
