Round 29

Round 29 had a special challenge – every photo needed to be SOOC – Straight Out of Camera. This means no editing, no IG filters, not even cropping. Why oh why did Lauri add this twist? One simple reason, to remind people to slow down, shoot intentionally, and think more carefully about their composition.

And Scavengers rocked it! There may have been some shock at the beginning, but once the surprise wore off, they got to work and created amazing interpretations of the Words.

The Scavenger Hunt has always been about bringing people together to up their photography game. This round was no different. Well done everyone.

Round 29 Overall Winner

Sam Breach

Sam took the challenge to heart and strove to create images that looked like they needed Photoshop, but didn’t. She used techniques such as forced perspective, multiple exposures, custom white balance, and more. Congratulations Sam.
