Mobile Photography – StreetWise – New! Eleventh Challenge – ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Share

 

We do not take pictures, we are taken by pictures”  Ernst Haas

Forget ‘shooting from the hip’, the theme of our next challenge is ‘shooting from the knees’.

Sometimes, as street photographers, we may find ourselves feeling a little stagnant and we may desire to travel away from our usual environment (a new town or city) to find fresh inspiration. However, when that is not possible, changing our perspective can offer a refreshing change.

For this next challenge, we invite you to get low – squat, kneel, lye of the earth, put your mobile phone on the ground – but, have your camera lower than your knees (or thereabouts) and shoot from that level, or, turn your camera upwards and shoot ‘up.’

We hope you enjoy this theme and look forward to seeing your results!

A recap of our rules and procedure for entry:

For the challenge please only post FOUR photographs to our Flickr challenge site on the link below, and in your title or description include ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Tenth Challenge – ‘Lines in the Street’

Share

Line is a rich metaphor for the artists…” Lance Epslund

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our Tenth StreetWise Challenge Showcase  ‘Lines in the Street.’ We are thrilled to share it with you!

Thank you so much for participating and sharing your wonderful photographs. Lee and I were delighted by all the beautiful submissions to this fun challenge. Lines denote so many things in photography, boundary, edge, or contour — it is the agent for energy and movement and it was wonderful to see the many ways in which people incorporated lines in their photographs

As always, Lee and I hope you enjoy the showcase as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying too much on apping. or images that are more art-oriented or painterly.

If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.

To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!
