Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing people looking at the camera in the Gazing At The Camera Photo Contest with chances to win a Portable Printer and more!

"The photographers did not simply aim the camera, shoot and happen to get lucky. They directed the models and took the time to make them feel comfortable and then captured a powerful expression. Only someone who invests time to engage with the subjects can achieve results like this. The images have clearly been edited yet you can see the beautiful detail of the skin. This too is not achieved with a simple preset. Time was spent retouching and must be acknowledged. Additionally their sense of lighting is on point for each of these portraits drawing you into the face and eyes of the subjects. I don't know these models but with images like these I feel like I know their entire story and life. The gaze is so powerful and the photographers did an excellent job reaching the goal of "Capture People Staring At The Camera"  - Dani Diamond

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Dani Diamond for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Dani is a world renowned fashion and portrait photographer and retoucher. Between his very unique method of shooting with natural light and his toning and retouching, Dani stands apart from the crowd and has a tremendous following. His love for sharing information with other photographers makes him a teacher and a mentor to other photographers.
