Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens
Backyard Shots is pleased to present our first photo contest for 2012!
 
 Submit your best still life image for a chance to win a TAMRON 18-270mm Di II VC PZD LENS!!
 
 
THEME: Still Life
 
Still life images can be created from just about anything that doesn't move. In the strictest sense, the definition of "still life subjects" refers to an inanimate object. Taking a more lenient stance, we believe there are other life forms that don't move such as flowers, food, etc. and consider them still life as well. So that's it in a nutshell. Be creative, think outside the box and most of all have fun!
 
This contest was inspired by our recent Still Life member challenge. View the winners of that challenge here.
