Summer is officially here and that means longer, warmer nights, and added opportunity and time to expand on your nighttime photography. Through all the uncertainty, this can be a great opportunity to stretch your creative muscles and challenge yourself to create, learn, and think outside the box. Whether that’s learning new skills online or starting new projects at home, we still find a way to create, which was the main inspiration for Adorama’s #CreateNoMatterWhat campaign. They’ve been hosting creative challenge competitions for artists to submit for a chance to win some big prizes and they are launching their newest one, Summer Nights, today! Regardless of where you live or what gear you have, Adorama wants you to Create No Matter What. They’ve teamed up with amazing partners to bring you a photography challenge!

The fourth Create No Matter What challenge is all about night photography, and the theme is “Summer Nights”. Take this opportunity to go and explore astrophotography, nighttime cityscapes, or even nighttime portraits (safely, of course) to win a Nikon Z6!
