"More and more, mobile devices are eliminating point and shoot cameras and are a great solution for on-the-go photographers. Smartphones, along with apps, and a few simple attachments are opening up a whole new level of photography. From macro lens attachments and circular polarizers to apps for slow shutter speed and creative snaps, Smart-phoneography is quickly becoming a favorite source for photography."

December 2017 Rotating Subject: Scapes. A Scape is defined as an expanse of scenery. Scapes may be, but are not limited to, landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, or cityscapes. Human elements are allowed. The image may be in color or monochrome
December 2017 Special Techniques: Close Up. This is an image of small subjects or parts of larger subjects. Achieving sufficient depth of field is the challenge with this technique. In some cases, just using a very small lens opening might be sufficient but in other cases some form of focus stacking may be needed. The image may be color or monochrome
