Better Than Ever

Thanks to your help we are making Phlearn better than ever. We are re-thinking our content to give you the best experience possible, and help you believe that you can do anything you put your mind to.


Every Monday we will be announcing the winner of last week’s contest, as well as starting a new contest.

Contest rules are simple. Submit an image in a comment to this episode, the image with the most likes wins! The winner will have their image edited on Phlearn, as well as win a Phlearn PRO!

Because the contests are voted on by you, anyone has a chance to win, even if you are just starting out in photography. It is up to you to get all your friends to vote for you, and get you the prize!

Monday Phunday!

We are throwing around the idea of calling Mondays MondayPhunday. Love it?


Make sure to become part of the Phlearn Family on Facebook, conversate with us on Twitter, and #hashtag your Phlearn inspirations on Instagram. We want to know what the Phlearn community social chatter is about, and who is sharing it. You all keep us motivated to do our best.

Contest Guidelines:

How to Enter
Simply add your image to a comment below. Please only submit one image each week. You're submitting images to be edited, so don't do too much Photoshop beforehand. We want to teach not just how, but why edits are being made.

How to Win
The person who best exemplifies the contest theme will be the winner. If two entries are close, the amount of likes, comments, and a great description will be the deciding factor. Winners are chosen by the Phlearn team.

By submitting images, you give Phlearn LLC the right to digitally alter your image and display on, and use your image and any resulting derivatives to promote We reserve the right to change the rules whenever we want.

Be sure to tell your friends you entered a contest on Phlearn. Use this convenient tweet button!

Random Tips

Want to shoot on a micro level but don’t think you have a lens for it? Take a wide angle lens 18mm or so and hold it to your camera backwards, get close to the subject and control focus with your distance. You will have no aperture control so work exposure with ISO and shutter, but you will be now shooting with a micro scope!
