Last month, we put up a copy of our brand new DVD, The Art Behind the Headshot up for grabs to the person who could impress Lee with their Photoshop skills. Entrants had to submit one file with both a before and after photo together to our Facebook Group. We got literally hundreds of entries, many of them really fantastic. We were very impressed with the skills of many of you. It was a tough decision, and Lee's choice may surprise you... Check the full post to see the winner and runners up.

[Contest] FS Forums Westcott Self Portrait Photo Contest Results

[Contest] FS Forums Westcott Self Portrait Photo Contest Results
This past month, we tasked you Fstoppers with entering your best self portrait for a chance to win a brand new Westcott Apollo Orb. Self portraits are understandably hard to judge, but I based my considerations on three aspects: 1) Well lit; 2) Concept well executed; 3) The photo tells me something about the photographer. There were many quality entries and I really enjoyed going through them. Thank you everyone who entered, as it proves what a solid group of photographers we have here. Check the full post to see the winner and the runners up.

[Contest] Win A Lowepro Backpack And Peter Hurley's DVD On Facebook
Fstoppers.com is completely revamping how we do contests. Starting this month, we are going to be doing at least four contests a month. It's a tall order, but we are going to do our best. You already know about our Forum Contest, and to that we are adding two Facebook contests. For the first contest, the folks over at Lowepro offered a generous prize: The Photo Sport AW 200. This bag was honored with the 2011 Popular Photography POP Award for being an Outstanding Photography Product, so of course you want one! Entering is easy: 1) Like us on Facebook. You can find our page at facebook.com/thefstoppers. 2) Find the "Contest" tab under our profile photo. 3) Answer the one question by November 30, 2011. 4) You're one step closer to taking off on your own photographic adventure. With the Photo Sport AW 200, there really is no place you and your camera can't go. The second is a Facebook Group contest. We have a great group that is growing and full of photographers who share their work. Just upload a before and after image of anything you Photoshopped and tag Fstoppers in the image. Make sure your before and after are together in one photo so we don't lose any of the entries. Lee will choose his favorite of the entries and the winner gets a Peter Hurley DVD!

I have been tasked with running FS Interactive which is our contests and social medias. We have been getting a lot of questions asking about the contests and we apologize for the wait. However, with patience often comes great things. In addition to our ongoing 2011 BTS Video Contest, we have three monthly contests now in the rotation. More details on the other two soon to come in the next week, but this week we start things off with the return of our forum contest! You have a chance to win a Westcott Apollo Orb, an innovative revamp of the classic photographic lighting tool, the Apollo.

Just register on the forums, find this thread, and submit your best self portrait. This first contest will be judged by myself, Lee and Patrick, but after that the winner will be the judge of the next month's contest (just like old times).

An Fstoppers Contest Update: Battle On The Racetrack

An Fstoppers Contest Update: Battle On The Racetrack
Within 24 hours of announcing the Fstoppers 2011 Behind The Scenes Video Contest, we were shocked to already have our first submission. Marc Kuyer from Holland had an idea to have small model cars battling each other like they were straight out of Rock and Roll Racing (super cult classic). Marc does a good job outlining his plans and showing you all the photoshopping that went into this final image. Of course we'd love to see everyone on camera but sometimes with language barriers you may have to stick with subtitles and text. So I guess it's safe to say right now Marc has taken the lead in our contest. If no one else steps up to the plate he will be moving on from small speed lights to a full studio worth of equipment!
