The 2016 Washington Apple Pi Photo Contest is designed to encourage our members to try out and learn new photo capabilities and techniques using technologies and settings provided free with the iPhone and iPad, plus Apple software. Novice and Advanced Level photographers should use the many options that come with the iPhone and iPad, and in Photos (or iPhoto if you have not upgraded), to adjust and modify the photos you submit. Advanced Level photographers may also use options from other third-party companies. Those third-party products should be listed when the photo is submitted.
For a greater insight into photography, members may wish to download the Coursera app and sign up for the free "Seeing Through Photographs" from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
At that meeting, we would appreciate it if contestants would be on hand to discuss your photos and the changes made to them.
