This was a nice summer photoshoot with one of my best young models :) It was so hot that we had to go home early... But before leaving, I decided to shoot some photos with an old Helios-40 lens. They turned up to be pretty good, I think!

The Brief

Who doesn't like bright sunny days?

Our sun has a very magic impact on humans.

Even when one feels blue, a bit of sunlight can warm things up.

So, for this month's photo contest, submit any type of photography that you wish: from portraits to travel to pets and more. Just make sure your image has some sunlight in it.

And don't forget that you can always use Luminar's filters to give your photos an even warmer look and feel. Try the Sunrays, Golden Hour, Brilliance/Warmth and other filters.

Click here to submit your photos. GOOD LUCK!


PS Here are some fantastic photos to get you inspired.
