Thank you to all the photographers that participated in the Playing With Light Photo Contest in collaboration with Zenfolio, sharing their best photos showing a creative use of light - portraits, landscapes, architecture, anything goes! Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and a special round of applause for the Grand Jury Winner who wins a 2 year Zenfolio Advanced subscription and more.

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Lisa Holloway for his collaboration as a guest judge. Lisa Holloway is an internationally published, award winning fine art portrait photographer residing in rural Northwestern Arizona with her husband and 10 children. A Canon girl since day one, Lisa is completely self taught and works exclusively with natural light. She has been in business serving clients in the Las Vegas metro area since 2008. When Lisa is not pursuing her photography interests, she loves the outdoors, road trips, cooking, thunderstorms, and spending time with her family.
