Our latest contest, and it's a big one!...


If you would like a chance to win the 2 DVD "OneLight Workshop" from Zack Arias (read our complete review here) here's all you have to do:

1. Join the Weekly Photo Tips Flickr Group (details on how to join can be found here)

2. Upload one (or more) portraits of a person, a pet, or any Christmas themed image to our Flickr Group

3. Leave one (or more) comments on any blog post on Weekly Photo Tips

The contest starts today (December 8th), it ends December 31st, and the winner will be randomly drawn from all contest entries and will be announced here on the blog on January 1st 2011.

I will mail the OneLight Workshop DVD's that we received for review to the lucky winner.

The rules are pretty simple, you can enter as many times as you like (one comment + one image upload = one contest entry), all ownership rights of all images remain with you the photographer.

The only thing we will use them (the images) for is to show as occasional "samples" of images we receive as contest entries and to announce the winner.

Lastly, the contest is open to everyone world wide, if the winner should be outside the contagious 48 United States, they (the winner) will be responsible (only) for the cost of shipping.

Good luck everyone.

How fun!
I'm already a member on flickr and I'm already sending photos to that group all the time!
I really wanna win this since I have no experience with lighting, I only shoot available light :)

I have been following this blog for a while now. Quite enjoying it and keep up the good work.

Zack is THE MAN. I think he truly makes good lighting very understandable while inspiring you as well.

Jeremy said...

I love Zack's blog... I can only imagine his DVD set is as good! Time to find those Christmas pictures for uploading...

Tommy B. said...

Ohhhh, I hope I get this!

Until this post, I didn't realize you had a flickr group associated with your blog.

From one extreme end of the country (Alaska) to the other (Maine), thanks for the tips here.

I'll be posting some one light shots to the group in honor of the One Light DVD. ;-)

Ribbon Candy always brings me back to my mothers; the candy was always left in the box on the table in front of the couch so all could have a piece while watching TV. AHH the moments of childhood remembered.

I have uploaded a single light self portrait image onto Weekly Photo Tips group on Flickr that I took a week ago as an example of what not to do with a single light.

I hope that at some stage I will master the quality of light and learn to judge the quantity of light needed to make a decent exposure...

I always seem to find that the range of my exposures is wider than the latitude of the medium to capture them.

It used to be fine with black and white negative film that had latitude of error to compensate for poor choices.

But now with digital assessing and judging lighting is a fine line and it is deadly..

Alight meter helps with natural lit portraits but I still have problems with strobes, even with a flash meter...

Perhaps theis DVD from Zack Arias will reveal some of what I need to do to improve my photography...

I hope so..

Hi,
I like Zack Arias`s work very much. He is an inspiration to me. I will upload this one light portrait to the group as a tribute to Zack Arias`s teaching http://www.flickr.com/photos/ogrizek/5281376804/
Best, Tibor

I recently had the opportunity to watch part of an acquaintance's copy of the DVD. What I saw was brilliant, so I would LOVE to have my own copy so I can watch the whole thing.
