Hello to all photography lovers!

As you know, I love photography and contests ^^ Almost every day I propose a speed-game with the application @steepshot and you are every time more to join us =). After the success of the MACRO-PHOTO CONTEST, the SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST and HE BEST B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY, I decided to make a new one:



A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

This is the Wikipedia definition. But for this contest I accept only photographs. Maybe another time I'll do a contest with drawing, painting or sculpture.
No need for specific material for this contest, it is accessible to all because even with a smartphone it is possible to have a beautiful photo portrait.

📷 You need to have is the agreement of the person photographed to publish his image.
📷 The photograph can be in black and white or in color.
📷 There are no age, gender or ethnic origin.
📷 No nude photography.

In my last contest again, there were dishonest participants who used pictures of other people. I do not tolerate this kind of behavior! The philosophy of this platform is based on quality and authenticity, not copy. That's why I have to put in place strict rules to avoid cheating. I let you discover the rules of this contest my Steemians friends.

It starts TODAY at 0:01! 50 SBD TO WIN!


1st place: 30 SBD

2nd place: 10 SBD

3rd place: 5 SBD

4th place: 5 SBD

The 8 RULES are simple:

To be considered for the contest,

➊ Your photography must be YOUR OWN WORK and must be accompanied by a PROOF. It can be:

  • A 2nd photography with a paper with "My entry for the PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl" IN FRONT OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY. Not only a paper because it does not prove anything. Thank you ^^.

Example by @oscardjld:

  • The original version of your unedited photo

Example by @pradeepdee6:

  • The photo of your camera with the image on the screen

Example by @carlgrand:

  • You with your model in the same photography

Exemple by Pixabay


This second photo does not count for the contest but it is the proof that the first one is an original photo. This avoids any attempt at plagiarism that is not tolerated on this platform. =)

➋ Your photography must be accompanied by an explanation of at least 50 words (in English, French or Spanish)

➌ Your entry must be published on your personal Steemit account with the title "My entry for the 7 DAYS 🖼 PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST! 🖼 by @flamingirl"

My entry for the 7 DAYS PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST! by @flamingirl - Day 1 - Looking into the soul

Posted yesterday initially in black and white. Now time for color version which has own charm

Crazy wide open F0.95 of this magic vintage manual focus lens just turning the ordinary world to pure fairytale. Here is natural light portrait of stunning (actually redhead) model. Very shallow DOF just provides amazing feeling for this portrait.

Enjoy the beauty!

@flamingirl, For sure, these kind of contests increase the Engagement Levels in the Steem Economy and this engagement is needed when Steem is facing the crisis to some extent.

And Photography is our daily activity but in my opinion just photography is not important instead we have to put our vision before capturing so that we can capture an truly story telling picture.

And yes, when we are entering into an Authentic contest then we have to showcase our original work, and most importantly we should not compare our work with any one else because when we compare then we will evaluate our work and then we depress because we are comparing our work with others and then people try to cheat by adding some others work to addon their work, so to be original is important to gain the respect.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

I completely agree with you!
The important thing is what the image conveys as emotion and obviously the authentic work is necessary!
Anyway, people who cheat will not stay long in the game so I do not worry ...
I believe in karma =D
Good night my dear friend and thank you very much for this beautiful message!

My entry for the 7 DAYS PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST! by @flamingirl - Day 3 - Fidel

Not an often case in my portfolio - man's portrait. But still happens.
Here is just fresh outdoors photoshoot of a friend of mine (by the way also good local photographer) with his new bike.

Just love how the complete style came into very nice result.

Quick questions. So a photo taken from awhile ago doesn’t count? And if I wasn’t the person taking the photo but it’s a photo of ME it doesn’t count?
