stay warm photos

Winter is upon us, and this week, we want to see how you combat the cold!

Though there may be icicles all around, the ground may be white with snow, and the wind may be howling outside, winter is all about staying warm. That’s why, for this Weekly Photo Project, we want to see how you keep cozy during the winter months. 

Do you curl up by the fireplace with a hot mug of cocoa? Pile on the wool sweaters and slip on a handmade hat? Or do you crawl into bed under a mountain of blankets and a good book? Whatever you do to make your winters warm, this week, we want to see it!

As you shoot, try getting up close to your subject to create a sense of warmth and intimacy in your shots. Whether it’s the pattern on a chunky knitted scarf, a pair of hands wrapped around a mug of tea, or a close-up of your toes in a pair of snuggly socks, sometimes, it’s all in the cozy details.

Share your shots with the hashtag #wppStayingWarm to enter the Contest.

About the Weekly Photo Project

This Contest focuses on pure photography instead of edits. The subject of the photograph needs to take center stage. Submissions with minor edits (such as tuning contrast, brightness, etc, filters, and HDR) will be accepted. Submissions with clipart, intensive edits (such as mirroring, warping, drawing, shape masks, text, and stickers), or that do not include the requested subject, will be rejected.
