Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing a creative use of shadows in this photo contest in collaboration with Photoflex with chances to win amazing prizes. The Extra Small LiteDome® Basic Kit is our quickest shoe mount kit to assemble and breaks down to a small, lightweight package. It is the smallest in the LiteDome® line, yet it makes an enormous improvement in results for the event, portrait or editorial photographer who uses shoe mount flash. The LiteDome® extra small kit can also be mounted onto a camera flash bracket to immediately step up from the amateur look of harsh on-camera snapshots to soft broad-source lit photographs.

LiteDisc® 32 inch Translucent LiteDisc is an amazing, convenient and portable light diffuser. Small enough to control with one hand, the LiteDisc folds down to 12 inches. Perfect for macro and close up: Flowers, jewelry, electronics, medical, scientific, collectibles, law enforcement, etc.

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Laura Tillinghast for his collaboration as a guest judge. 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

"The light and shadows in this image are breathtaking. Using black and white was very effective at focusing the viewer's attention on the light spilling into in the scene. It's also great that the subject is turned away from the camera, hinting at more story behind the image. Very well done." - Laura Tillinghast

Runner Up

"This is a stunning landscape image, made more impactful by the shadows present. The figures in the image add scale and a sense of wonder for such a beautiful place." - Laura Tillinghast

Amateur Winner

"This image tells a great story and has lovely depth of tone. The long shadows cast by each subject artfully lead the viewer's eye on the same path as the subjects. Very effective storytelling." - Laura Tillinghast

People's Choice

"The dramatic shadows in this image make an effective impact for an unexpected portrait. The mood is pensive and thoughtful and the high contrast light really guides the viewer to the subject's face." - Laura Tillinghast
