At the beginning of the year, we talked about a photo contest promoted by Apple. Unlike what happened in 2019, however, this one now had an important detail: the company wanted to promote photos taken with the Night Mode (Night Mode) of the latest iPhones.
Interested parties sent their photos to the company until January 29; they were then evaluated by a panel of judges and would be released on March 4. Well, Apple decided to advance everything and released the photos today. ?
IPhone photographers around the world responded to the call to participate in the Night Mode photo challenge, sharing their captivating Night Mode images taken with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. A panel of judges selected six winning photos among thousands of submissions worldwide. The winning images will be displayed in a gallery on Apple.com and on Apple’s Instagram (@apple), and will appear globally at billboards.
Those responsible for evaluating the photos were: Malin Fezehai, Tyler Mitchell, Sarah Lee, Alexvi Li, Darren Soh, Phil Schiller, Kaiann Drance, Brooks Kraft, Jon McCormack and Arem Duplessis.
And let’s go to the winning photos!
Phil Schiller: “Konstantin’s photo is a super-dramatic image taken in Night Mode. It could be the opening scene of a great Cold War spy movie. This challenges us with intriguing questions – ‘Where’s the driver? Where are they going? Why stop here? ‘ A cold mist permeates Russia’s blue slope and snow-covered ground, framing the lone vehicle with bright red lights that suggest an unknown danger. ”
Darren Soh: “An incredibly well-balanced composition that throws so many questions back at the viewer – ‘Where is that? Who lives here?’ – and perhaps most importantly – ‘Why do you hang your clothes to dry at night?’ As an architecture photographer, I am attracted by the perspective of a point in the image that takes the viewer to the frame, as well as to the hanging clothes. ”
Tyler Mitchell: “That surprised me. I have no idea where that deep, rich red light in the tree comes from. It almost looks like a UFO sitting above the tree, out of the picture. Absolutely beautiful composition, too. ”
Alexvi Li: “Taking great advantage of Night Mode with the exposure setting, the photographer captured the silhouette of a group of people in the city’s light scene. The photo floor reveals a beautiful texture when shooting against the light. The simple composition quickly attracts viewers to a story, offering good image quality. ”
Kaiann Drance: “A captivating photo of a winter village by the sea, which must feel cold, but it feels warm with the glow against the rocks and lights inside the red cabins, inviting a story about the people inside.”
Jon McCormack: “This image represents the best of the iPhone. Capturing life as it happens, no matter what the light! The feeling of moment, intimacy and place in this image is very good. It really transports the viewer to be there. ”
