Congratulations to Rachel French, winner of the #MostColorfulCostume Photo Giveaway!

Rachel is a Lifestyle photographer and author of the blog, Appreciating the Everyday. The image of her son in his Halloween costume is aptly titled "Mr. Robot-o".

Our judges couldn't resist the happy "uh-oh" expression on this little guy's face hinting at a personality as colorful as his costume.


Rachel's goal in photography is to "capture the beautifully mundane moments of life with my family." You can see more of her work at

Darwyn Dave's "Hometown Homage": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

Looking for a new challenge? A little creative jump start? Try creating some double exposure images. These wonderful, often surreal photos offer a unique way to express a mood, feeling or idea that might be difficult to illustrate with a single image.

Love post-production? Can't get enough Photoshop? Check out this video on How to Make a Double Exposure in Photoshop.

If digital special effects are not really your thing, try this tutorial on How To Shoot an In-Camera Double Exposure Photo.

Kudos to Darwyn M. Dave, last week's SideKick360 Winner, for his creative use of double exposure:

"This image was inspired by the phrase "It ain't where you're from, it's where you're at..." from the rap song, "I Know You Got Soul" by Eric B and Rakim. I'm originally from St. Louis, MO, but now reside in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. I wanted to do a sort of play on words, but at the same time, pay homage to my hometown. The image is a double exposure of the Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse superimposed inside of an image of myself." - Darwyn

Amanda Stevens' "Autumn Celebration": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by MeFOTO Blog       Category Macro Photography, Wedding Photography       Tags wedding rings, MeFOTO Giveaway, sidekick360, instagram giveaway, Amanda Stevens Photography, wedding ring photography, photography tips

Ring shots are an important part of wedding photography. Rings symbolize the couples union and tell a piece of the the wedding day story that's unmatched by any other detail shots.

Amanda Stevens, our SideKick360 winner for 10/17, brings us a prime example of a creative, personalized ring photo:

"This shot was taken at a wedding last weekend in New Jersey. The venue was very well decorated in celebration for both autumn and their wedding day. I always look for something during the reception to tie the rings together for the photos and who doesn't love pumpkins this time of year?

This was shot with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 100mm IS L Macro lens with my assistant holding an LED video light off to my/viewer's right hand side." - Amanda
