June 2022 Photo Contest Winners

After a record-breaking month for voting in May with one of the most impressive entry pools to date, our June 2022 photo contest delivered yet another batch of mesmerizing entries. We’re stoked to see the contest continuing to attract new members and push our existing members to up their game each and every month. Thanks, everyone!

Let’s get right into our June 2022 photo contest results.

Third Place: @cannashotskc

Blue Dreams

In third place, new member @cannashotskc beat out the competition with a really cool shot called “Blue Dreams.” The photo features a live cola lit up from the sides with one of the lights being red or purple and the other blue.

The effect of the contrasting lights, not to mention the gorgeous flower sample as the subject, makes the shot stand out in the gallery and clearly won the voters’ attention.

Well done to @cannashotskc and thank you for participating!

Second Place: @thedavidlynch

Pistils and Calyxes

Our second place winner @thedavidlynch came out swinging with three incredible entries. One of his shots was oriented in portrait, one was square, and the other was landscape. All three were great in our humble opinion and the best of the bunch, according to our voters, was his portrait shot titled “Pistils and Calyxes.”

Dave’s winning shot features a close-up macro view of a ripening cannabis flower. As the photo title implies, the image is so detailed it could easily be used to help explain the anatomy of cannabis flowers.

Thanks to @thedavidlynch for submitting these wonderful entries and congrats on the win!

First Place: @terp-pusher

In first place, another new member and first-time contestant @cannashotskc0 earned the top spot with a beautiful photo titled “Macro shot.”

During our live stream announcement of the winners on Instagram, @cannashotskc0 revealed this image was actually produced using an editing technique called photo stacking. With photo stacking, photographers can take dozens and sometimes hundreds of images of the same subject in order to capture each and every part of the subject in perfect focus.

Then, using photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, the photos are “stacked” or blended together to create a single image that’s 100% in focus. For a plant like cannabis, with its extremely complex and multi-faceted surface, photo stacking has proven to be an essential editing skill for all cannabis photographers.

Thanks to @cannashotskc0 for entering and congrats on the well-deserved win!

Closing Thoughts

Thank you to all of our new members and contestants who made sure our June 2022 photo contest was just as exciting as our record-breaking contest from the previous month.

We continue to be blown away by all the talent this community is attracting and we can’t wait to see where we grow from here (pun intended!).

Our July contest is already up and running in full swing with some incredible entries from both our new and longtime members. Be sure to get your entries in before the 22nd and come back to vote before the end of the month. If you’re reading this after July 2022, check out our Live Contest page to see what’s going on this month.

Thanks again everyone, and we’ll see you in the next one!
