  • Winners have not yet been announced.

Welcome to another Critique the Community! For this contest we want to see your best photos that represent high end e-commerce. Sure, you can submit images shot on pure white but we are looking for those hero shots that you'd see on the front of online stores and digital catalogs. Feel free to submit images of clothing, electronics, services, products, or anything else that might sell online site unseen. 

Each photographer is allowed to submit up to three images. Please remember to write a bit about how you created the image in the description otherwise your images will not qualify for selection. 

One random images will win a free tutorial from the Fstoppers Store, but we will also be giving away a special digital giveaway to a lucky winner as well.  As always, good luck and we look forward to seeing your best photos!

Some really good images so far. Alot of talented people to learn from here!

Seems like a lot of people don't understand the term "e-commerce"...

George Popescu's picture

Yeah, some people posted fully designed pieces with added text and other things instead of just a photo, the theme was not advertising design was it?
Also after seeing 4-5 Alcohol bottle shots you've seen them all.

Sales copy makes it a hero image...

Alcohol bottles and everything else has been done a 1000 times before. But there are still techniques to be learned from other people.

A lot of good ad posted there

I want more CTC videos. 4 weeks is too long. Hook it up guys. I need my fix.

Dan Grayum's picture

I know, this and coronavirus journals were my bread and butter.

Kyle Foreman's picture

Will there ever be another contest?

George Popescu's picture

Not this month!

It's been 2 weeks since this contest closed.
I often find that I don't have an image ready to enter in any given contest and I would like to try to take one and enter it. Often there just isn't time.
What do you think of releasing the next completion as usual, but also releasing the subject of the one after that? Then keep that method going forward so there's always something to be working on.
It would be especially helpful when we have a situation like this where this critique has been closed for weeks, we would still have something to be thinking about and getting ready for.

Has the video for this one been made?

Jo Cole's picture

Wow , such another long old wait for next CTC 🤔☹️

Marc Wells's picture

hope you guys are alright, it's been a long time since the last CTC

Jeff Bennion's picture

The next CTC should be on turn around times

They just launched a Kickstarter last week so maybe they're busy with that side of the business.

If you click on Contests at top, Active Contests including E-Commerce shows up as New submissions closed but with voting open; however, if you then click on E-Commerce, it says new submissions and voting closed.

They don't know?

George Popescu's picture

They know, it's been closed for over 3 weeks now, so there's no way they don't know this is finished.

I guess a corona virus video is, as always more important than photography....Go figure. What else is new.

Matthias Dengler's picture

Fstoppers is a business. They prioritise what brings money.

Stefan Olsson's picture

hahah. I guess photography is not paying their bills...haha

According to the video yesterday, they are renovating and Lee is about to have a baby, so I just imagine they are busy doing things other than making free entertainment for us. Still though, I wish they would hurry.

Patrick Hall's picture

Hey guys, sorry, we left for Christmas and then wound up without a studio in Jan and Lee is about to have a baby. It's kind of hectic around here at the moment. I'm back in Puerto Rico so maybe I can get a guest to visit and wrap up this CTC and make a new one. Let me try to see what's possible.

Dan Jefferies's picture

Fine by me. I'll be your guest and wrap this one up.

Dan Grayum's picture

How about no theme. Just a free-for-all. Enter your favorite image with an explanation why it's your favorite.

Jeff Bennion's picture

How's it going?

Alejandro Espeche's picture

So....

Jeff Bennion's picture

Maybe you guys could just post the theme of the next one and then we could start working on that and you could do two videos in one sitting
