There are as many different ways to photograph a person as there are people to photograph. You should always select a setting, pose and lighting that complement the individual's natural characteristics and personality – take your lead from them!
Both the expert's winner (decided by expert judge Sigita Playdon) and the crowd's favourite will win full Anthropics PortraitPro, LandscapePro, PortraitPro Body and Smart Photo Editor bundles worth £199.95 (GBP).
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.
