Seeing the Light, a photo contest that celebrates the art of light,
is now open for entries through 3/31 at www.seeingthelightcontest.com.

Whether created using natural light, one light, two lights, or three+ lights, Rangefinder wants to see your best images that show the versatility of light, along with a description of the lighting setup used to achieve the shot. Last year’s winner, Bill Gekas, placed a softbox to the left of the camera and in front of his subject, then fired a speed light through a window cucoloris, also to the left, to create his stunning image, “Laundrette.” Beautiful lighting is a big component of Gekas’ images, but isn’t the only thread that ties his photos together: Gekas’ work is largely influenced by old master painters, and primarily portrays his young daughter as a protagonist in a storytelling scene—a “universal child.” Because of his unique stylistic approach, Gekas’ work has been published in a variety of major media outlets, including ABC News, BBC, NBC Today and The Daily Mail, to name a few.

How do YOU showcase and utilize light in your images? Show us by entering now at www.seeingthelightcontest.com.

CATEGORIES:
Natural Light » One Light » Two Lights » Three+ Lights

PRIZES:
ONE GRAND-PRIZE WINNER WILL RECEIVE:
» $1,500 CASH
» A $500 gift card from Adorama

ONE FIRST-PLACE WINNER IN EACH CATEGORY WILL RECEIVE:
» $100 gift card from Adorama
» A one-year PHOTO+ Basic Membership which includes a WPPI Conference & Expo 2016 Full Platform Pass and access to WPPI University

ALL WINNING IMAGES WILL RECEIVE
» The official winners' seal

About the Exhibition
Open to all media, “Impact” explores the motivations of the artist to create. We ask the artist to answer through their artwork, “What inspires you? Who or what is the driving force behind your need to create? What has left an impression on you that lead you to become the artist you are today?” Whether it is a mentor, an event, a concept, or a personal revelation, this exhibition will examine the many avenues that impact the contemporary artist.
