New Photo Mission: Better Look Twice

By EyeEm Team - 4 min read

Wait a second… What the? Show us the photos which make you look twice in this new Mission with Bento.

Photography can often involve a degree of trickery – whether it’s adding filters or doing little touch-ups on Photoshop afterwards, it’s something we’ve all seen many times before. However, some of the most eye-catching tricks are when you capture something which at first looks like one thing, but upon second look, is something else.

Not sure what we mean? Think of photos which make you look twice – why? What was it about the composition, the content or the light which forced you to look again? These are exactly the kind of shots we want in our new mission with Bento – the shots which mean you Better Look Twice!


By The Diary of Zach

Your Mission: Reflections, funny alignments, matching patterns – all sorts of things can make a photo take more than a single look to understand. What photos can you take, which make the viewer take a second look? Think of interesting compositions, strange angles and anything which makes your photograph need a second look to understand.

Your Reward: A selection of finalists will have their photographs featured, with full credits, in Bento, the new millennial news site of Spiegel Online. The top images will also be featured in an image collection on the EyeEm Blog. Winners will be chosen by the EyeEm and Spiegel Online photo editors.

Deadline: January 11, 2016
