Streets Ahead – Women’s Mobile Street Photography – New Challenge – ‘Panning’

Share

We are proud to announce a new Challenge to our Women’s Mobile Street Photography Collective – Streets Ahead.  The details are below and the selected images will be portrayed in a showcase later in the month, for an example of that, please see here.

CHALLENGE 13: Panning

Deadline 20 July 2016

Time for a new challenge. Panning on the street with your mobile phone. Panning is not about movement, it is movement, and that’s what makes it challenging: it’s the following of a moving subject along its plane of motion. Most often it’s a horizontal plane with the subject a runner, a rider and so on. Essentially, you should be striving to keep something within the picture sharp. Try to decide which element of the image you want to keep sharp.

To help you with this challenge we suggest you download Slow Shutter Cam. If you set the shutter speed within the app to 0.5 seconds, for faster moving subjects, you’ll get some great effects. Freeze Control is available in Motion Blur and Light trail modes. As the developers of Slow Shutter Cam explain “the Freeze control allows you to put more or less emphasis on the first or last frame of a capture session. Moving the slider to the left will put more emphasis on the first frame, while moving the slider to the right will put more emphasis on the last frame”.

A recap of the rules and procedure for entry:

1. Maximum of three entries per person – please do not upload any other images to this group as it has been created specifically for the challenge only. The admins will delete images that are not relevant.

2. Upload your images to the group on flickr that has been created specifically for the challenge entries.

3. Please label your image ‘Challenge 13: Panning’

4. Photos from a mobile device only please.

5. As this group is to highlight women photographers, we will only accept work shot by women.

CHALLENGE 12: Arjan

Deadline 13 March 2016

We felt it was time for a new challenge and as many of you will be aware, we very sadly lost an incredible mobile street photographer just a few weeks ago. Arjan van der Horst was an incredible person and used the app Hipstamatic a great deal, so much so, that following his death, the developers created a unique Arjan film in his honour. Our Challenge this month, is for you to use the Arjan film to capture images, in ways that we knew he would.

The Arjan film is free, just head over to your shopping basket, within the HIpstamatic app and you will see it there.

A recap of the rules and procedure for entry:

1. Maximum of three entries per person – please do not upload any other images to this group as it has been created specifically for the challenge only. The admins will delete images that are not relevant.

2. Upload your images to the group on flickr that has been created specifically for the challenge entries.

Streets Ahead Interview – Cindy Buske – Mobile Street Photography

Share

This week, the Women’s Street Photography Collective (Streets Ahead) is pleased and honoured to feature Cindy Buske in our interview segment. 

“As a mobile photographer, I love capturing the world around me – literally anything that draws my attention can become a subject. I also have a more figurative side that cherishes the work of creating unique portraiture. My images often enter a dreamy, ethereal world, yet maintain an accessible simplicity.”

Cindy is is a Seattle-based nurse who is passionate about photography. For her, photography is an important creative outlet and counterbalance to the structured world of medicine. Her images have been featured in Snap and Mobiography Magazines, as well as on Hipstography, and in various group exhibitions. I highly recommend a visit to her galleries.
