Ian Ruhter’s astonishing wet plates have taken the photographic community by storm. Now, Ian has teamed up with Profoto to host a contest and give something back to his supporters.

Ian will give away the wet plate below plus three signed prints of the winners’ choice. Here is what you need to do to get a chance to win one of them:

  • Shoot an image on the theme “light”. It does not matter if you use natural light or Profoto strobes. The important part is that you do something creative and inspiring.
  • Go to the dedicated Ian Ruhter contest site.
  • Upload your image, choose a category and let us know where we can reach you.
  • The contest closes on September 1. Ian and Profoto will then present the finalists so that you can vote on your favorite.

But that is further down the road. Now, get out there and start shooting!

Ps. Leave a comment below if you have any questions.

    Hi Ian,
    I have been following this series, and your work since I first saw it here on the Profoto blog… Thanks, thank you for sharing your images, and thanks for the honesty in your images… And in the technique you are using… Great images.

    Just a quick question regarding the categories… Natural light (available light ?) and artificial light…. How do you want us to categorize images taken say in a music venue…. We probably have not contributed to the lighting but are using the light that is available… I am thinking about the light that we as photographers have now control over regarding direction, quantity and quality…. Don’t want to be pedantic but are we to consider natural light as light without any influence from man-made sources ?

    Thanks again Ian, looking forward to seeing some great images in this contest….

    All the best
    Mike

      Hi Mike,

      Fredrik here, who outlined the contest together with Ian. Good question (and not the slightest pedantic.)

      To clarify: what we mean with “natural light” is “available light”. In other words, shooting in venue with for instance ceiling lamps qualifies as this.

      Hope that helps and good luck shooting!

    I find your work so inspiring. You’re the Ansel Adams of our generation. Now my only problem is what photo I should use to try and win this contest. Keep up the great work. Hopefully I can meet you one day.

    Does the photo need to be shot between now and the deadline, or can we use a photo that was shot in the past?

    Thanks!

      Hi Paul,

      You can submit an older photo if it fits the theme of “light”.

    Is this open to anybody or just residents of the USA?
