We try to do at least one “Photoshop” contest per year in the themed photography contests called Contest Corner Challenges - we call them “Digital Darkroom” challenges. Unlike our regular Contest Corner Challenges, where you’re asked to take a photograph with a certain theme, the Digital Darkroom challenges have you take at least 3 of the provided photographs, and use your post-processing skills (with programs like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro) to combine them into one completely new image. It’s been over a year since our last Digital Darkroom Contest Corner Challenge, so it’s been a long time coming: Contest Corner Challenge #76: Digital Darkroom #4. You can see the photographs you’ll have to work with here in the contest thread, (also thumbnails on the right —->) or you can download all the full-size photos here (a ~16mb file).
The contest sponsor is none other than Amazon.com - find and discover anything you might want to buy online at the lowest possible prices. Amazon.com and other sellers offer millions of unique new, refurbished and used items in categories such as beauty, health and personal care, jewelry and gourmet food, sports and outdoors, apparel and accessories, books, music, DVDs, electronics (cameras & photography equipment!), office, toys and baby, and home and garden. In addition, a portion of the cost of every product purchased through this link goes to support PhotographyCorner.com (what are you waiting for, go buy some stuff!!)! If the winner is a Premiere Member, they will receive a Slik Monopod 350. If the winner is not a Premiere Member, they will receive a Lifetime, Level I Premiere Membership.
You’ve got a couple of weeks to put your “photograph” together, so head on over to the contest thread and download the photos, then open up your favorite post-processing program and start being creative in the digital darkroom! Entries are due in by August 3rd, and voting will begin on the 4th.
