71: Separate Triple 72s

Posted on Sep 12, 2019 by in 216, Active, Magnet Limit

The contest for September 2019 is to photograph three builds, each 72 Zen Magnets, in one photo. You’ll need exactly 216 Zen Magnets, and no more.

As much as constructions that are grand and heavy are enjoyable, so too are the numerous possibilities posed by a mere 72 magnets. What makes this contest difficult is not just deciding which three mini builds to focus on, but also how to create visual harmony between the three, and where!

No post processing allowed aside from color balance and levels. That means no artificial blurring, no compilation photos, and no photo-shopped backgrounds.

  • Zen Magnets only
  • Three Sculptures 72 Zen Magnet to be shown
  • 1 submission per person
  • No collages or photo-manipulation beyond basic color levels and contrast.
  • Deadline 9/30/2019

As usual, the judges will be your peers. Pay attention to resolution, focus, lighting, and framing. Unless you’re outside under the sun, avoid your bright reflective flash, and opt for a self timer and a tripod (or stand.) Sharp, high resolution pictures are preferred. $300 in prizes is up for grabs and distribution will depend on participation. There will be at least five winners. Prizes will be announced with judging. Everything you submit goes into the public domain. Submission deadline is the last day of September 2019.

Don’t forget the first and foremost requirement: Have fun!
