Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Welcome and Fifth Challenge – ‘Accessories in the Street’


Hello Everyone!

We are in the process of curating our August StreetWise showcase and wanted to thank you all for submitting such great images – we look forward to sharing it with you soon!

The theme of our next challenge is ‘Accessories in the Street’.

CHALLENGE 5: ‘Accessories in the Street’

Deadline:  August 31st, 2016

“Know, first, who you are, and then adorn yourself accordingly.” Epictetus, First Century, AD

While walking the streets it is evident that the height of the summer season is upon us, given the attire and accessories that people are adorning themselves in.

Our challenge this month is  ‘Accessories’ – hats, sunglasses, shoes, purses, jewellery, watches, etc.

As photographers in the streets we are always scanning our environment for light, shadows, people, animals, situations etc, that capture our attention – the ‘decisive moment’. When taking photos of people, we often will notice interesting characters and often what makes them stand out in a crowd is the clothes or accessories they are wearing – and, it can be that their accessories can make the difference between capturing a good photo versus a great photo.

We are are thrilled to view your submissions each month and look forward to seeing and curating your photos for this next ‘Accessories’ showcase.

A reminder we have two Flickr groups – please post your challenge photos to the following link labeled in the title or description with ‘StreetWise Accessories Challenge.’

A recap of the rules and procedure for entry:

For challenges please post up to four photos to our Flickr Challenge Showcase Site and in your title or description include ‘StreetWise – Accessories’.

We look forward to seeing your photos.
