SunShots photo contest: Submit your best “Emotions” pictures

SunShots is your monthly chance to flex your photography muscle and learn from fellow enthusiasts. This month’s theme is “Emotions," inspired by Jesse Zukowski of Baltimore.

“Stoop Portraits” winner

Zukowski is the winner of last month’s contest for her photo “Playground Closed,” a beautiful black-and-white portrait, in which she captured the candid facial expression of her son Jayden when his grandmother explained that playgrounds were closed.

Jesse Zukowski won the SunShots photo contest "Stoop Portraits" with her photo of her son sitting on her mom's front porch.

“I love taking pictures of children and families," said Zukowski.
