This is an exciting new opportunity that we hope will get more of our users and fans showing us what they shoot.

Images from Last Week:

Last week we had some great entries of people showing us their favorite “Golden Hour” shots. Fans followed the BorrowLenses Instagram page and tagged photos with #BLGoldenHour. The WINNER of last week’s Instagram contest is Zach Rogers! Congratulations to Zach for winning a $50.00 rental credit to BorrowLenses. Here are a few of our other favorite images collected. Feel free to comment and let us know what image is your favorite in the bunch! Check out all of the #BLGoldenHour entries here.

This week we are asking the BorrowLenses community to share their impressions of the color blue. Snap a photo, tag it, and reveal to us what the color blue means to you! The contest is open to your own creativity so show us your best!
