Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #8 Winner: OLD

Barrett is the winner of our most recent photo contest: Old! What a breathtaking photo, Barrett! We hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

This photo was shot in Death Valley National Park in California. I shot this using a Canon 5D Mark II with a 16-35L II lens. I set the camera up on a tripod and exposed the image for 30 seconds at 2.8 at ISO 3200. 30 seconds was the most I could get out of it before I started seeing noticeable star blur. The lights in the background are Las Vegas.

Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #7 Winner: Silhouette

Lai Jun Wei is the winner of our most recent photo contest: Silhouette! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

Canon 1D Mk3, 1/125, f/4, ISO1000

I shot this photo during one of the half-marathons held in Singapore. I had to walk a good distance, which included a steep climb up the Benjamin Sheares Bridge before I came to this sweet spot with the Singapore Flyer in the background. As most of the elite competitors had passed me when the sun came out, I decided to focus on the sunrise and make take a silhouette shot of the stragglers instead. All the effort I put in just to get this one shot… Totally worth it.

I don’t really have a site where I post my photos. But I shoot regularly for a local sports news site and my photos can be found here: http://redsports.sg/author/junwei/

Everything about this photograph is beautiful: the colors, the focus, the composition! Great job, Jun Wei!

Brian Davidson takes home the prize for our most recent photo contest: LUSCIOUS LIGHT! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

The photo was taken with the Canon 1d mkIV and the Canon 15mm f/2.8 Lens. The settings were at F/22, a 25second exposure and ISO 200.

The photo was taken during the Independence, Mo Santa-Cali-Gon days. The festival is held each year on the Independence square to celebrate the Santa Fe, The California, and the Oregon Trails. All three of the trails started on the Independence square and If you have ever played the Oregon Trail video game, you would have started the in Independence. This was my first try at doing a time lapse and after a few test shots, I nailed this one.

Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #4 Winner: SIMPLICITY

Martijn Hendriksen is our latest Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest winner! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

On a cold and misty morning I woke up and found the atmosphere outside great for some photography and so went out. As it had been below zero for some days the pools in the riverbed were frozen, that made for a great mirror. These few canes reflected nicely with the serenity of being out in the cold and mist all alone. At home I processed the image to give it a cool feel and that’s it.

Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest #3 Winner: SPEED

Melissa is our latest Wide Open Tees Facebook Photo Contest winner! Congratulations and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!

About the Photography and Photographer:

(Exif: 111mm – f/3,5 – ISO 125 –  1/1000). This photo was taken at a photoshoot for a small horse magazine. The woman whose riding the horse has been national champion a few times. Watching this horse take very sharp turns at such a high speed was amazing to watch. Taking the photo at the right moment was difficult. She only did 3 or 4 runs, and it all goes so fast, so you need fast fingers and fast eyes!

What a wonderful depiction of speed, Melissa! The movement of the dirt is spectacular! Keep up the great work.

Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts: Facebook Contest #1 Winner

The very first Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts and Photography Clothing Facebook Photo Contest has come to an end. The winning photo belongs to Edmund Loo.

About the Photographer and Photograph:

A couple of my high school friends do a private, friendly, monthly photography contest to encourage shooting, and the theme that month just happened to be “Water” which was picked by the previous winner. The same night, I got into the shower and noticed how the water would bounce off my body and I thought it would be a good idea to try to freeze the water in place and see how it looks. A couple of websites I feel like readers must visit are Strobist Blog, POTN, and of course the Wide Open Tees website.

We love the captured moment, Edmund. Great way to start off our the Wide Open Tees Photography Shirts Facebook photo competition! Check out Edmund’s Flickr here! Lots of great photos there. You should be able to contact him through Flickr for any information regarding the photo or any other photos in his portfolio! Great photo, Edmund!
