SunShots photo contest: Get creative, submit your best “At home” photos

SunShots is your monthly chance to flex your photography muscle and learn from fellow enthusiasts. This month’s theme is “At home,” inspired by Terry Lee-Wilk, of Columbia, who has been able to find creative ways to still take sports photos under the state’s stay-at-home order. We want to see you get creative with your photography while of course staying safe. Consider submitting a self-portrait in a space in your home that is special to you. Or create an image of a common object around your home and make it look beautiful. Experiment with composition and shadows. Photos should be taken indoors or in your front yard or backyard.

‘Motion’ winner

Lee-Wilk is the winner of last month’s contest for her photo “Stealing Home,” taken at the Howard County Youth Program’s Kiwanis Wallas Park in Ellicott City.


“The photo captures that moment of anticipation that happens in the seconds between the play and when the ump makes the call. What I like about the photo is that this anticipation is suspended in time, leaving the viewer to forever imagine what happens next," writes Lee-Wilk.

"Stealing Home" by Terry Lee Wilk won the most votes in last month’s SunShots photo contest, “Motion".
