June 19th-26th slid by in a blur! It was week 23 in the mygirlfund photo contest on Tumblr and our queue stayed smoldering with submissions. The theme for week 23 seems to be contrast. The dynamic range between dark and light that gives a photo that certain sense of drama. Our contestants bumped it up this week to great effect.

KittyKatonic also rocks the contrast in this shot below. She scores runner up for not being afraid to go dark! The blacks are rich, and the highlights on her skin make it all just pop don’t it? Contrast wins again today. Great job kitty. ❤
LindseyHunt rocking a clipped back black setting and muted highlights make for a soft contrast that lands somewhere between the last two submissions. She scores first place for finding that perfect balance. Congrats Lindsey!
blackVelvet uses a different kind of contrast entirely in the shot below. It’s easily the best shot of the week. She is on fire! Color contrast is a fine art that you really need to get on top of if you want to step your color game up. BlackVelvet is an expert in color. You can check out her stream of submissions here. Note her penchant for muted saturation? This is so crucial when trying to find the right palette to present skin against. You can click her shot to tell her congratulations. 🙂
