Grab your camera or phone, capture creative and dynamic photographs, and share your best one with us (and potentially the community). Portrait photography is a genre of photography that focuses on a person, or group of people, as the main subject. One of the main things we will be looking for among the submissions is a photo that tells a story. Capture the personality, mood, and energy of the subject. Use vivid colors to your advantage, or lean into lighting and contrast with a black-and-white photo. Choose a busy or serene setting, or blur the background out entirely. However you choose to construct your photographic scene, tell us a story through your art.
Enter by July 20 for a chance to have it displayed in our gallery space at the Digital Media Lab in the Main Library.
