Here’s a list of features and comps you can apply too…

Features:

“Photography Influenced by Art”

Art has influenced photography since its birth,
and although some people regard them as two
completely different mediums, we don’t. That’s why we
want to see your work that is influenced by art, or that
uses the techniques of a specific art movement.

“Toy Camera”

It is our belief that it doesn’t matter how much money
you have or how much your equipment cost you,
a talented photographer can produce interesting and
thought provoking images with even the cheapest of
cameras. So this is our challenge to you, using your toy
camera produce an image/aseries of images which prove
money can’t buy talent.

For anyone who isn’t sure toy cameras are simple
inexpensive film cameras, such as Holga or Lomo.

Competition:

“Story”

We love a good narrative at #PHOTOGRAPHY, for the
issue 3 competition we want you to take a line from your
favourite book and interpret it in an image/short series of
images. Submit your finished image to us along with the
quote it was based on and we’ll choose a winner 20th
October 🙂

Introducing #photography

#photography is a free online magazine. It is due to be launched this summer. The basic idea is to break the conventions of standard photography magazines, and take all the great work we find online and post on our blogs and put it into one place.

Samuel Schimek is and Artist and Designer who sets up a Social Media Booths at events, which allow users to take and upload pictures to facebook and tag them, his website ’15 min’ explains why…

SOCIAL MEDIA IS AT THE TOP OF CURRENT TRENDS FOR CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS TO GROW THEIR FOLLOWING AND PROMOTE THEIR WORK, AND EVENTS ARE USING IT AS A MEANS TO BRING IN MORE PEOPLE. FOR THE SOCIAL MEDIA PHOTO BOOTH PROJECT I USE THE LATEST TECH AND CONTEMPORARY BOOTH CONSTRUCTION. THE GOAL IS TO CATALOG VIEWER PARTICIPATION AND PROVIDE A NOVEL PLATFORM FOR INTEGRATION OF NEW MARKETING TECHNIQUES IN LIVE EVENTS.

My favourite collection is the Harajuku Japanese Street Fashion Party, mostly because i’m partial to a bit of Japanese Culture. But also because most other cosplay images i have seen lack the energy of the characters and presumably the eccentric people wearing them, but maybe because the subject is in an enclosed space and taking the images themselves which then by being uploaded to facebook makes them feel like they have ownership and control, they start to relax.
