The third day (and my second try) at Zedd’s True Colors promotional contest just ended with a #TrueRed theme. If you haven’t been keeping up to date, this contest asks Instagram users to post pictures of something that features the “Color of the Day” while using certain hashtags (like #ZeddTrueRed).

At the end of the competition, five winners are highlighted on the website. There are a total of 65 winners each day, and prizes include t-shirts, smart phones, posters, Beats by Dre, and an all-expenses-paid trip to a concert.


These three were my submissions to #TrueRed. After seeing some of the winners for #TrueOrange, I realized that posting multiple photos didn’t hurt your chance of winning. After realizing that, I went on a short photo shoot with my girlfriend, and I found three shots that I really liked.

The first was a picture of a light fixture at my local snack shop (Big Al’s), but I like how the angle and lighting made it look like a planet. The other two are of my girlfriend’s cat, Moxie. I propped my smartphone and my iPod touch so they worked as jerry-rigged lighting, then took pictures of the cat while Lauren played with a red laser pointer.
