Shooting for EyeEm Market: The Best Photos From Our “The Color of” Missions

By Lars - 5 min read

Four Missions showing the color of sport, school, technology, and business.

In September we hosted four unusual Missions: Rather than partnering with a brand, we showed you exactly what brands are looking for on EyeEm Market and asked you to shoot it. We called these Mission “The Color of”, with a specific look at Sport, School, Technology, and Business.

From your submissions, our photo editors have selected five favorites for each Mission. We like these picture because they show unusual angles and and portray our topics with lots of contrast and bright colors. It makes the photos look warm and friendly – and also a little abstract. This is perfect for image buyers who can use them in a marketing context!
