By Matt J. Weiss, June 22, 2012 @ 03:59 PM (EST)

The May 2012 Monthly Contest winners have been announced! The theme for May was “bokeh” and the winner of a brand-new i-Torch 600 from i-Divesite ($200 value) is Henry Jager with a pipefish portrait demonstrating extreme bokeh by isolating only the eyes.

For the second month in a row Brandi Mueller won second place, this time with longnose hawkfish bokeh image.  Third place went to Todd Bretl, who captured a close up shot of clownfish eggs.

We would like to extend a gigantic thank you to our sponsor for the last three monthly competitions -


1st place - Henry Jager

2nd Place - Brandi Mueller

3rd  Place -Todd Bretl

More about the i-Torch 600 focus light



The i-Torch 600 is driven by 3XAA battaries providing 600 lumens and 1-2 hours burn time. A great price point with YS-adaptor mount included and using the super bright XM-L T6 LED. The reflector is a special design that has been CNC cut so the light beam is evenly diffused. The 600 is a great choice for digital camera HD movie illumination or DSLR focus light, as well as a macro video light.
