    Hi there,

    As the EU-only photography contest ends, we return to our original formula of having some of the most creative shutterbugs in the community sharing their tutorials on how to get stunning photos. This week, we've invited @Bouncer71, one of the founding members of our Community Sample Shot Program.

    The logic behind this week's challenge is simple: it's all about contrasting colors. By doing so, you can accomplish really stunning shots like the ones Bouncer71 is about to show. It is, of course, easier said than done, so I will just let him give you a list of helpful tips to help all of you getting that perfect shot!

    Good luck!

    To make the challenge, well, more challenging, try to share pictures taken this week, rather than directly from the gallery. The idea behind this series is to invite you to go out and take new, amazing shots. And remember, it’s all about mobile photos.

    The best 10 photos will be awarded 100 raffle points that can be used to enter raffles. You can read more about it here.

    Challenge Rules:
    - All photos should be taken with a smartphone, regardless of brand. Some weekly challenges may be specific to some OnePlus models, but the thread will be clear about it.
    - The photo should match the challenge's topic. Non-related pictured are not eligible to win.
    - Any photo shared by you should be your own. Any kind of cheating will result in disqualification in the present and any future challenges.
    - Each user can post up to 5 different photos each week.
    - While the photos are still yours, you allow OnePlus to use your photos for promotion purposes.

    Hi fellow Photomaniacs... :)

    This time I have the pleasure to bring you a short tutorial for this week's challenge..

    It's more or less minimalist, artistic approach to find or set up scenes with clearly defined contrasting colors. It's also an exercise for the eye to find interesting details in the world around us, for composition and to pay a bit more attention to the background.

    How it works:

    Look for uniform backgrounds, e.g. against a blue sky,
    Limit the number of basecolors.
    Maybe boost contrast and colors in postprocess, but don't overdo it if you don't want to loose too many details or get surreal looks… ;)

    Pictures say more than a thousand words, so here some Examples...




    I think you get the point… ;)

    Here you find a tutorial about high contrast portrait photography…

    Have fun exploring and now go out there and shoot some photos…
    Probably better ones than mine... :D

    Good luck y'all…!

    Why is there text over it? It destroys the image... And it's not the right topic... It's contrast and not colorfull
