Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best candid shots showing human beings in the Humankind Photo Contest with chances to win a Camera Strap, Shutter Release and More!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Laura Tillinghast for her collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Laura Tillinghast is a native of Northern California and has been an artist most of her life. She discovered photography as her true passion in college and from that point on she has never put her camera down. Shooting primarily advertising and editorial content, she has found herself photographing everything from gourmet cheese to gorgeous models (though not at the same time). Whenever she shoots she keeps the same goal in mind no matter the subject matter: make it beautiful.

Grand Jury Winner

"This lovely portrait is a perfect combination of interesting subjects, a beautiful setting, and gorgeous lighting. The shallow depth-of-field also really focuses the viewer's eye to the subject and her compelling expression." - Laura Tillinghast

Runner Up

"The energy in this shot is palpable and really draws the viewer in. The composition really tells a story by leading the viewer's eye from the subjects to down the country road to the dramatic, stormy sky. Excellent image!" - Laura Tillinghast

Runner Up

"This is a gorgeous image that I can't stop looking at. The movement in the hair and the the subject's expression create a wonderfully mysterious and moody feel." - Laura Tillinghast
