September 2018 Monthly Theme Contest – Layers
Hello Streethunters.net Readers!
A few words about the Monthly Theme Contests
It is time for the Monthly Theme Contest for September 2018! The Monthly Theme Contests are a fun challenge for all! Every month we choose a Theme and we ask you to participate by each sending us one Street Photograph each time at firstname.lastname@example.org. That photos must be based on the Monthly Theme. So for example if the theme is Silhouettes, then we would like you to each send a photo with a Silhouette moment. Your photo can be taken any time in history, we don’t mind, as long as it has been taken by you and nobody else.
What Is This Month’s Theme?
This month we would like to ask you to participate with Street Photos of “Layers”. We would like you to send in street photos featuring a good use of layers. Dig up your best shots or go and hunt for some news ones! Please send in clever photos shot using the layers technique. We look forward to seeing what you will send in!
Please follow the example of the photo we are sharing with you here.

Layers? translating I don’t understand what are “layers”, pls can give me a clou?
Layering is a common street photography “trick” to make photos look more interesting. It means that you have 3 or more subjects on different levels of depth or from a different distance from you, the photographer, but at the same time they are not overlapping. I hope this helps.
