Saturday Night Contest - Impossible Snapshot!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, Mar 30, 2019.

  1. Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! It’s been a while since we have done one of these types of contests, so let's just jump into it.

    Your challenge is to take a picture of something that looks impossible. For example, get a snapshot of an object impossibly “balancing” on your hand. Have an object “levitate” under your control. Your job is to make the action in the photo LOOK impossible. The method can be the most impractical thing on the planet; even a still frame from multiple photos will work! The criteria is as follows: creativity, composition, lighting, and one more factor: make it look as convincing as possible that it’s real.

    Post your photo to Instagram using the hashtags #theory11 and #theory11SNC and post the link to your photo in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 11:00pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, March 31st. Once time is up, our panel of judges will decide on a winner based on the criteria listed above.

    Please note that all entries MUST be uploaded to Instagram only. If you do not have an Instagram account, it is completely free to make one. Every single entry requires a NEW photo submission. There are no old photos allowed whatsoever in any contest; past, present, or future. Each participant that is caught cheating and submitted old photos will be permanently banned from any and all theory11 contests in the future.

    What can you win? 1,000 Elite Points and Perfect Cents by Cosmo Solano.

    Good luck!

  7. Is some mild “photo manipulation” allowed?

  8. Probably, just make it look believable and I don’t think they care
  9. Go for it! Just make sure it looks as convincing as possible that it's a real snapshot and not something that looks like obvious editing.

  12. Decided to try something a little different. An impossibly altered reflection. A real mirror was used, and absolutely NO Photoshop or manipulation was used, aside from the basic controls available within Instagram. Enjoy!
