About Your Answers

Your answers do NOT need to include the camera equipment we used, just the materials we used and an idea of how we used them for the effect. Despite each image looking rather different, I can assure you, the same materials and techniques were used for all the images shown here. Once you think you know how we did it, tell us on the entry form below and click on the Enter Competition button and then, we will reveal the way it was done when we publish the winner of this competition on April 30th. Watch this space. Thank you.
