Meet the Guest Judge of the #Urban Contest and discover his Tips for making it to the finals!

David Tamurejo @dtamu is a mobile photographer from Madrid. He is last year’s #Black&White Hero, a style that predominates his work and where he feels in his element. We are so glad to have him as the Guest Judge for the #Urban contest, which is actually his field of expertise.

David has revealed to us the techniques he uses when shooting this genre of photography hoping they will serve as inspiration and help you achieve better results in this Contest:

“Basically, what I usually look for are places with suggestive entries of light, to exaggerate the contrast between light and dark areas and obtain pure blacks and whites. Outdoor photography facilitates this natural effect, more-so than indoor photography. I find shooting in black and white is easier and I love to minimize the surrounding atmosphere and enhance the silhouettes – just like everyday life which has its moments of light and shadow.
