Every day, the AMPtCommunity Photo of the Day Team will highlight an image selected from the website uploads. In order to ensure we don’t miss any of the incredible images being uploaded there, we will be selecting our images from the main gallery, rather than from a specific tag. The main features will be posted on our website daily, and each week we will post a round-up of our selections on IG, EyeEm, Facebook, and Pinterest.
If you would like to be considered for a Photo of the Day feature, please head over to our website, sign up to be a member, and start uploading your images. There’s a link to the site on our profile page. You’ll discover some amazing artists and images there. You’ll also find a range of other interesting features and resources, including blogs, tutorials and forums, as well as real-time interviews and chat.
We look forward to seeing you over there.

Paul Brown @skipology

About the artist: I am Paul but known to most as Skip and live in Lincoln, England. I’ve always enjoyed photography but am not formally schooled in it. I am self taught through books, blogs, social media, communities and lots of practice. I stopped taking photographs for a large portion of my life to date but then a few years ago was gifted an iPhone4 and very quickly it became an iCamera and my enjoyment of photography was reignited. I am honoured to say that my images have won prizes and have been exhibited locally in Lincoln and London and Internationally.

The inspiration for my images is always a combination of my family and my home city. The vast majority of my images are captured in Lincoln. My influences are the great friends I’ve made across social media and specialist mobile photography communities. (you all know who you are)

About the edit: Captured in ProCamera7 with Olloclip wide angle lens / Filterstorm crop square and sharpen / Superimpose to layer and mask versions of the same image to create the foggy background / Mextures to add film texture and light leaks enhancing the previous process / Oggl film and lens combo added / Snapseed selective adjust to clean up some specific areas / CameraBag2 Seventiescope effect to add the circular frame which I thought mirrored the circular drain. Circular frames are not normally my thing.

Please visit Skip’s website http://skipology.com for great tutorials and workflows, & go to amptcommunity.com for the entirety of this feature.

@serjios

About the artist: I got started in photography after someone had registered me three years ago in a photography class without my prior knowledge. I had just downloaded Instagram and was convinced that I would never be able to create anything artistic!

I was taking photos with my mobile and posting pictures on Instagram and I remember my professor telling me that I had to stop using my mobile because it would never help me learn anything about photography. But I persisted doing both until today with one principle: it is not about what you see but how you see it.

Today, after three years of pure photography passion my photos are exhibited in international art fairs and this coming November I am proud to have my pictures exhibited at Paris Photo (at the Grand Palais in Paris). So I guess that @instagram could lead you anywhere!

About the edit: As for the picture I have chosen, and probably all my pictures today, apart from the cropping process I try not to edit them at all because I truly think that simplicity is what makes a successful image.

@singlee007

About the artist: My name is Sing Lee, I’m a software engineer. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, my roots are in Hong Kong. Dutch is my native language, and I also speak Cantonese and English. I love technology, art and design. My left side of my brain is stronger than my right side, it takes ages before I can think up something creative, luckily my analytical skills helps me to execute the idea. I like gloomy and moody things, but in real life I always smile when I talk.

I was always intrigued by how much emotion and mood a still picture can hold, so I wanted to create the same. I started with taking snaps and taught myself all the technical things. Only about two years ago I joined instagram, it really was a big eye opener! I was incredibly impressed by the creativity of the community. It was truly inspirational! From this point I wanted to create something too instead of just capturing things what just happens in front of me.

About the edit: The picture was taken in an abandoned room, I love the way how the light came in through the window and the gloomy atmosphere it has. I have seen the ‘disintegration’ effect here and there on instagram, so I thought this effect would perfectly fit the mood.

I do all the editing in PS Touch on my Samsung Note 2, it’s really nice to have a stylus for editing! Usually I start out making the picture black and white, then make an S in the curves and lift the darks (the left side of the curve) up a bit, so the picture tone will get a bit more flat and less details in the shadows. And then I blend some mextures from a separate layer. For the ‘disintegration’ effect I’ve erased myself a bit using the clone stamp tool, and added the particles using a picture of sand. I’ve erased and added sand until I got this effect.
