Strike A Pose - Photography Contest [73 entries]

Winning entry, with a score of:
By wind
Contest goal:

What we do with the human subjects in a photo can make, or break it. A few weeks ago, we had a contest idea called 'Caught off guard.' Catching things spontaneously resulted in some marvelous shots. As we all know, posing subjects can result in a different type, but equally marvelous shot.

In this contest, you want to do the exact opposite of the 'Caught off guard' contest. Consciously 'pose' your subject. Show someone who loves the camera and will strike a pose for the shot. These kind of people like to be in the spotlight and know the camera loves them. They can be people you know or strangers on the street, just show us that pose! You must have at least one person showing their face. People only, no animals.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

friiskiwi: Thanks for obmitting animals ( 5 years and 2731 days ago )
jawshoewhah: It wouldn't make much sence to allow them. I mean some animals are smart enough to be aware of a camera but Strike a pose and model about like they are on a runway ortrying to get it's attntion by making faces? Nah, I'm afraid animals don't quite meet that unique trait as well as us homosapians. ( 5 years and 2731 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Remember this contest is exactly opposite of the Caught Off Guard, but they know they are being photographed, only this time they are well aware of the camera and desire to be shot, striking a pose, basically make it somehow obvious that the camera on them is very welcome and encouraged. Here's an example found: ( 5 years and 2731 days ago )
