We teamed up with online photo game GuruShots to showcase the very best images from the ‘Perfect Portraits’ competition
Billed as the world’s greatest photo game, GuruShots is an online platform that provides a fun, structured way to showcase your images while gaining global exposure for your work. 
By competing in epic challenges against millions of photographers, you can get instant feedback from over three billion monthly votes and increase your ranking from Newbie to achieve the ultimate status (and bragging rights) of Guru. 
GuruShots’ challenges are voted on by the platform’s Gurus and the wider community, and there’s a fresh challenge every day. Winners can receive prizes from GuruShots’ sponsors such as Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro and Lensbaby. 
For the ‘Perfect Portraits’ competition, the aim was to capture the true character of the subject with your photography talents – and capture them you did!
The winning images didn’t disappoint, with the shortlisted entries including the stunning use of golden light (19), as well as low key lighting (13) and soft focus effects (09). We highly recommend scrolling through all the images – they show a diverse range of subjects and creative camera techniques!
The 20 highest ranked images were published in Photography Week magazine, and we’re pleased to showcase these images below, along with the rest of the top featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
