Winters have a way of transforming the space around us... like the presence of fog, or people huddled together over a roadside fire, or an evening spent over a warm cup of tea. We want you to show us this transformation through your photographs.
A flash can be used when it's dark, to brighten up the subject, or during the day as a fill light. It can be used for freezing the subject, or creative enchanting motion blurs. When used with some colour gels, your photographs may even look eerie or mysterious. For this week's theme, we would like you to show us your best photographs captured using a flash.
Making a portrait of someone is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experience. As Philippe Halsman had once said, "A true portrait should, today and a hundred years from today, the testimony of how this person looked and what kind of human being he was." Keeping this thought in mind, capture a compelling portrait of a person.

Clouds are ethereal, dreamy, and sometimes somber too. It doesn't matter if you're looking at them from the top of a mountain; your kitchen window; while sitting in your car, on your way to work; or while laying on the grass, staring up at the sky. They are simply magnificent. We want you to experiment and capture the unique qualities of your cloudscape photographs.
