Digital Camera Photography Competition: Win a Lowepro rucksack
We’re running a photography competition to win a Lowepro rucksack worth £150. All you have to do to enter is capture a striking architectural photo.
Whether you shoot the entire building or just part of it, we’re looking for images that reveal the character of a building, rather than simply document its form. There’s more to architectural photography than shooting facades face-on – you could shoot across buildings, from above or below, or through other object in the nearby environment, such as parts of other buildings, trees or sculptures.
We’re looking for something original and inspired that truly stands out from the crowd.
The prize: Lowepro Flipside 400 AW
Each month we’re giving away an excellent Lowepro camera backpack worth up to £150 to the lucky winner of our Your Mission photo competition.
The Flipside 400 AW is a high-performance backpack with a unique rear-access compartment and padded waist belt, specifically designed for the wearer to be able to access gear while still wearing the bag. It also includes the patented All WeatherTM cover, adjustable dividers, and Hideaway Tripod MountTM system.
For your chance to win, simply upload your photo to our gallery in ‘This Month’s Issue – Issue 122′ category, and upload your images by 7 March 2012. The best three shots will be printed in Issue 124, which will go on sale 30 March 2012.
Here are some tips to give you a head start:
- Your vantage point is everything. Most buildings are shot from ground level in front of the building. Get up high if you can or go in close and shoot upwards. Explore the other sides of the building, as well as within if it’s a complex structure.
- Reflections on rivers and lakes can be effective, especially in night shots.
- Look for repeating patterns in details, or strong contrasts both in light and shade, or in form.
- Keep an eye on the sky behind the building, and ensure it doesn’t over-expose.
