    Welcome to April shutterbugs!

    The world is living a special situation and that's why this month is gonna be also a bit special too. Instead of having one single theme for all month, we have four themes, one for each week, all under the same #StayAtHome "roof". This way things will be more entertaining during the quarantine and hopefully will help your creativity.

    Happening now:
    Fourth Week (22nd - 30th)


    First week (1st - 7th)
    Through the window

    Windows (and balconies) are right now our link with the outside world, our light and fresh air suppliers, the frames of usual views that now, somehow, look different.
    - Play with lines, geometries, vanishing points, composition...
    - Find something appealing/new in that view that you are probably bored to see.
    - Use different windows for different views (if you are able to).
    - Look straight down, and up. It might be surprising!
    - Open the window, move the curtains, place a silhouette, wait for the best light...

    Second week (8th - 14th)
    Red Color

    This week is more playful. Look around and find red. The photo main theme must be red, a red object, multiple red objects, a predominantly red tone... Have I say red already? Fill the thread with red!

    - Don't forget composition while shooting "organized" objects.
    - Maybe you are lucky and have red flowers?
    - Experiment with textures and framings, try something new.
    - Get closer until the object itself disappears.
    - If you have something that's translucent with a red tone you can have a red light for your scenery!

    Third week (15th - 21st)

    We are surrounded by transparent objects. We can look through them and they can also create other mysterious worlds through reflections. A glass of water, a piece of plastic, a crystal lamp... Find your scene or build it!

    - Be careful with intrusive lights. Or make them play in your favor.
    - Move around to make reflections move.
    - Check again the tips from the second week they can be applied here too.
    - Extra reading for a deeper insight into reflections.

    Fourth week (22nd - 30th)

    Cooking is a great activity for these days. Even if you don't cook, we all have to eat, right? Make everyone hungry with your creations and/or your daily deliciousness.

    - Try different angles.
    - Use natural light.
    - Raw food can be a good model.
    - Disobey your mother for once, play with food!​


    To complement this information and find some more examples, you can also check this thread, and as usual, here are the additional resources:

    Without further ado, enjoy shooting and have fun! Hopefully, photography will be a good companion during these awkward times.

    Take care and stay safe, everyone!

    Here. Please read both opening posts carefully.

    Please all, this is a contest. Read the contest specifications carefully and post only pictures that follow the contest rules.

    In the first week it's about the views outside your windows at home.

    Do not post indoor scenes. Stay indoor, and post, what you can see outside. Through the window.

    Contest Rules
    • 3 pictures max. per post, 4 posts max. in the whole month
    • All pictures must follow the weekly changing conditions!!!
    • All pictures have to be your own work and have to be taken with a OnePlus device
    • All pictures have to be taken within the current month, maximum is the last week of march!!!!
    • State the specific device/ editing software/ hardware (extra lenses)
    • Photos should not be published previously anywhere. OnePlus reserves the right to request original photo files before fulfilling prizes if plagiarism is suspected. The photos that can not be verified are disqualified.
    • Copyright infringement is strictly prohibited. Users who post pictures that were copied from the internet, or were not taken with an OnePlus device, get a code of conduct warning, plus a reply-ban for the contest for the actual plus the following two months.

    Additional info
    • SOOP is a monthly contest with a new theme every month
    • 1 winner per week, 4 winners per month who will all receive an OnePlus Hoodie
    • Final winner will be selected through public voting on Twitter. The final winning picture will be sticked on top of the OnePlus Twitter account.
    • Winners will also get the opportunity to be featured in an official OnePlus calendar, or a postcard, or even in an Addition magazine.

    The pre-selection team consists of: @Bouncer71 , @cdnfarmer , @hennes , @otto2 , @script , @TibiTibi , and @woSch . We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite the final weekly winning picture gets selected. Its really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore its needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, its never settle.

    This is my money plant,placed at the edge of my drawing room window. I like this cozy and corner place in my flat when I water the plant daily. I feel great and it has grown a bit now since when I planted this and placed in my room.
