Update 2 November
We’re so impressed by the quality of the shots that are coming through for the ProCamera Night Photography Contest that we’ve decided to extend the deadline through to Wednesday 7 November.
For the contest, we want to see your best shots taken after dark. It could be the lights of the big city, a landscape bathed in moonlight or a great party photo!
We’re running the contest to celebrate the launch of the new ISO Boost mode which gives the iPhone 5 great night-time shooting capabilities, as shown in the example below.
While the ISO Boost mode is only available on the iPhone 5 we encourage all iPhone users to participate in the contest and submit their night shots. The contest is worldwide.
A selection of our favourite pictures will be showcased throughout the week on our official blog and Instagram account (@ProCamera_app). The winning photos will be announced on Friday 9th November.
There are five awesome prizes on offer:
1. The winning photographer will receive a Manfrotto KLYP LED Case, Light and mini-tripod (iPhone 4/4s). The KLYP gives you complete control over how you light your night shots, great for portraiture, parties and events.
2. The runner-up will receive an awesome kit including a Quad-Lock iPhone Case, Universal Mount and Tripod Adapter to help you take better night shots, such as panoramas and group shots (with the ProCamera self-timer).
3. NEW! The third place photographer will receive an iRig MIC Cast from IK Multimedia. The iRig MIC Cast is the ultra-compact, portable voice recording microphone designed specifically for recording podcasts, interviews, voice memos and more.
4. NEW! The fourth place photographer will receive an iKlip Studio iPad stand, perfect for detailed photo adjustment and editing. The stand can be used in both portrait and landscape mode.
5. The fifth place photographer will receive a copy of Digital Photography School’s iPhone Photography: How to Shoot, Edit and Share Great Photographs. The book includes a whole section on taking great shots at night.
Photos must be taken with the ProCamera App. All iPhone versions are accepted.
Maximum one photo per entry. For example, only your first photo tagged with #procamera_night will be considered.
The winning photos will be selected by the ProCamera team.
