If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

the photo is of a local model and singer named julie, who's helping me out with a up coming photo shoot of mine . in the photo julie is prepped for a life cast im creating to sculpt over and then apply the gel prosthetic in the photo shoot.
since i dont have a light meter which is really import in studio photography and on location video film work ..lets just say i do a lot of improvising, jerry rigging up quick rigs and hope they dont burn the place up for the right effects ..luckily this one set up was just a 500 watt lowes special yellow work light as the key light angled down from 8 feet above and two $13.00 harbor freight 150 watt specials .which where used as quick filler.
the photos where just reference and for the model ,so i didnt spend any time with the light .no butterfly under the nose or any other classic effect with a key light and three or four accent lights ..not enough time and a bit to much for just a quick pic.
the lighting that im describing would be taught with in the first three months of any decent photography school or local arts/adult learning center. such as many high schools that help bored parents and teen .you pay a few bucks and you get a non accreted three month class tough by a local teacher of the art/program .
(if you buy any light from harbor freight ,always run them on a plug strip with a glowing on off switch and keep the light off till needed..)
this is also a non edit from the camera.
