#IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER:<br/>We Want Your Natural Light

As the ‘yang’ to this month’s other ‘yin’ theme, we also want you to show us what you’re capable of when dealing solely with natural light.

To a certain extent, yes, every photo will usually contain some form of natural light. This is more about those times when things just click for you, and you can seemingly bend the light around you to do your will.  You know those moments right? When you glance at the back of the camera and immediately know that today is one of those days where it’s good to own a camera.

What we want to see from you is your absolute best use of natural and ambient light. We really want you to show us how you made it work for you or how you controlled your exposure in seemingly impossible circumstances. We want you to show us those times where you did things that you shouldn’t have been able to do with a camera.

As always, the brief for this theme is important. Take your time to read the below in detail and know what we’re asking for. One of the biggest reasons we reject photos is because they don’t meet the requirements as stated below.

If you want to take part in this theme, you’ll need to do the following:

  • E-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com with the exact subject line of  ‘The Natural Theme’.
  • Tell us your name, location and a little bit about the photograph.
  • Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 2000px on the longest side and a minimum of 1920PX.
  • Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
  • Closing date for submissions is December 18th 2013.

Please note that all submissions are now in high resolution.

Safe shooting.

Can I send interior photos too ?


Okay, I submitted a couple photos. It seems like I always screw something up though. This time I forgot the title the first time so I sent it twice >__<


is there any kind of "requirement" for the car?


@Lubcz Absolutely :)


muhammadilham Nope, once it has four wheels it's all good.


i submit 2 shots ... hope one gets in .....


So before I submit, can i just clarify that you're looking for raw, non manipulated photos?


Do photos need to be unedited or is slight editing allowed?


TroyChipman Images can be lightly edited, as always.


Rick Rosales Editing is absolutely allowed. It's a key part of digital photography.


PaddyMcGrath muhammadilham so no robin reliants? Damn! :)


@EvLSant0s  I think your supposed to lose the watermark mate.
