It’s time to announce the winners of our fall photo contest! We had over 90 submissions, and choosing winners was very difficult. Needless to say, we’ve narrowed down our selection to 18 winners–these images will be printed and put on display at Englewood Camera! Congratulations to our winners! Swing by the store the week of November 21st to see the displayed prints.
Want to help us decorate our walls for fall? Enter our 2016 Fall Photo Contest. Submit up to 2 black & white images to win a spot on our walls! Winners will receive a complimentary 13×19″, dry-mounted print after it is displayed on our wall. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions, and for submissions. You may submit low resolution files, but must have high resolution files available to print from. Contest submission deadline is Saturday, November 5th.
The rules are simple; photos must be in black & white, with no more than 2 entries per person, and must be owned/taken by the entrant. By entering the contest, you certify that you are the original owner/photographer of the images. And that’s it!
The end of July 2016, Englewood Camera ran a photography contest for its customers. Entrants were able to check out a Lensbaby Velvet 56 for a 48-hour period, and submit 3 images to be considered as part of the contest. We had a large number of submissions, and a variety of creative shots that made this contest exceptionally difficult to judge! We are pleased to announce our winner–Hannah Morvay–who captured these images on a Canon. Congratulations, Hannah, and thank you to everyone who participated. We found all of the images very inspiring, and hope you keep at the creative process!
It’s summer time in Colorado, which means a wonderful opportunity to get your creative juices flowing at any number of events, local parks, or on a cool escape to the mountains! To celebrate summer photography, Englewood Camera is offering a unique photo contest, where participants can check out the very awesome Lensbaby Velvet 56 to push the creative boundaries of photography.
What is the Lensbaby Velvet 56? A take on the classic portrait lens–such as a 50mm f/1.2–the Velvet 56 has 3 primary uses. When used with its fastest apertures (f/1.6, f/2, f/2.8), the lens functions as a soft focus, creative effects tool. When used with mid-range apertures (f/4-f/16), the Velvet 56 offers a classic portrait-lens look, with sharp focus and creamy bokeh that rivals the Sigma Art lenses. Lastly, the Velvet 56 functions as a pseudo-macro lens, with a minimum focus distance of one-half an inch, or a 1:2 macro. So, whether you specialize in fine art photography, or portrait photography, this lens is a wonderful tool to add more creative kick to your images!
It’s that time of year! Break out the face paint, masks, capes, or whatever tickles your fancy….Halloween is coming! To celebrate one of our favorite holidays–probably because it’s the one day our employees can break dress code–Englewood Camera is having a fun, social-media inspired contest. On Saturday, October 31st, share your best costume pictures with us via Instagram (you must tag @englewoodcamera), Twitter (tweet @englewoodcamera), and on our Facebook page (facebook.com/englewoodcamera). You may submit photos of yourself, your wife, your kid, your dog, your turtle, your grandpa…you get the picture (see what we did there?!).
To get you all pumped for a fun-filled Halloween, here is a picture of Erin’s unipig!
It finally feels like springtime in the Rockies; the air is fresh, the sun is shining, and our allergies are going nuts with all of the budding trees! Englewood Camera is pleased to announce our newest photography contest for our customers! The theme for our spring photography contest is night photography. Photographing in the dark opens your eyes up to new creative possibilities, offering new perspectives on subjects you may typically ignore.
Submit traditional landscape, cityscape, urban landscape, or lifestyle photos—they just have to be taken at night! Share your favorite moments of how you see the world at night with us and our customers by entering! Photographs can be taken in any location, so this contest is not limited to Colorado. We will be selecting 12 final images to hang in the store from late May until early August, 2015. You may submit portrait or landscape format images.
Englewood Camera had an overwhelming response to our Fall Photo Contest to decorate the walls in our store. Thank you to everyone who submitted Colorado images–it was difficult picking 15 winners!
Here are our winning entries; they will be put on display at the store next month.
Fall: a time of year that doesn’t really exist in Colorado. We launch straight from the heat of summer time to the cool winter temperatures fairly quickly, with the color of the leaves changing depending on when the first snow hits or how cold it is. We try to predict the peak of color, but every year is a challenge for getting out and beating crowds at the best locations. For this fall photography contest, we’ve decided to push beyond the typical fall photos in Colorado, and broaden the possibilities for all entrants.
Our theme for our fall photography contest is simply Colorado. Because it’s hard to pinpoint the seasons in our great state, choose your favorite images taken around Colorado to submit. You can submit traditional landscape, cityscape, urban landscape, or lifestyle photos—they just have to be taken in Colorado! Share your Colorado moments with us and our customers by entering! We will be selecting 15 final images to hang in the store between November 2014 and January 2015. You may submit portrait or landscape format images.
