“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” Bruce Gilden

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for submitting your images to StreetWise Flickr group for our ‘Winter Showcase.’

We were touched by the soulfulness and warmth of your photos – beautiful winter scenes (whether in tropical or snowy settings) of people (and animals) looking out windows, windows as frames, windows reflecting cityscapes, people in public transportation, carrying umbrellas, lone figures in urban landscapes and photos of people connecting hand in hand, or embracing one another. Even in the often darker, bleaker times of the winter months, when taking street photos can present a challenge, so many of your images captured what it means to be human – our fragility and our connection to one another.

We are inspired by this international group and it is our honor for Ilana and I to curate so many wonderful artists from around the world, and to ultimately, share the showcases with you.

Ilana and I find it very difficult to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know that we appreciate each and every post!

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

If you are a street photographer, please consider joining our growing community. To those new to our community, welcome – it’s great to have you join us!

Please continue to post your images to StreetWise Flickr group for showcase submissions:

Please note that StreetWise Facebook page is NOT for posting photographs but for sharing information/discussions, thank you!

A special thank you to Joanne.

We hope you feel inspired by this showcase and our wonderful group. Until next time, happy shooting everyone!

Many congratulations to the following artists for being featured in our showcase including:

Basak Aytek, Daniel Vondav, Donna Donato, Dina Alfasi, Paula Betlem, Carlein, Kathy Clay, Vanessa Vox, Mark Fearnley, Allyson, Susan Rennie, Armineh Hovanesian, Julia Nathanson, Isabelle Wolter, Marc Zetterblom, Ger van den Elzen,  Michel Dev1, Karen Axelrad, Michael Beresin, Laurence Bouchard, Paul Yan, Ocean Morisset, Christine Mignon, Myrna, Giulia Baita, Nick Kenrick, Luison, JH McB, Dixon Hamby, Valeria Cammareri, and Rene Valencia

The magic of the street is the mingling of the errand and the epiphany” Rebecca Solnit

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our Eighth StreetWise Challenge  ‘People Working 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.

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

A reminder — we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group intention and guidelines  “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying on too much apping.

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Seventh Challenge – ‘Shapes and Geometry in the Street’

Share

Hello Everyone!

The theme of our next challenge is ‘Shapes and Geometry in The Street’

Deadline: October 31, 2016

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place” Elliot Erwitt

Shapes and Geometry are popular themes in any genre of photography, and street photography is no different. There are so many wonderful ways to incorporate both elements into your street shots. From the passing of a square or rectangular window, a circular cutout on a construction site wall, large triangular marble slabs on the side of a building  there are numerous architectural details of multitude shapes, the repeated pattern of a floor or walkway, and even to lights and shadows that form dramatic shapes and geometry. Shapes and geometry are all around us in our environment and create balance and structure as well as add interesting graphic detail to the composition of a photograph. Sometimes, even how we frame a photo creates a geometric pattern or shape. The options are literally endless!  

We are excited to view your submissions each month and look forward to curating your photographs for this next ‘Shapes and Geometry’ showcase.

A recap of our rules and procedure for entry:

For the challenge please post only FOUR photos to our Flickr challenge site and in your title description include ‘StreetWise Shapes and Geometry’.

Hello Everyone!

We are in the process of curating our September Showcase and wanted to thank you for submitting such wonderful images  we look forward to sharing it with you soon!

The theme of our next challenge is “Reflection in the Street’

Deadline: September 31, 2016

“A photograph can be an instant of life captured for all eternity that will never cease looking back at you.” — Bridget Bardot.

While walking in the streets there are reflections everywhere, in windows, mirrors, on rainy days, in puddles, on metallic and shiny surfaces, that capture our attention — sometimes we even see our own reflection when capturing a photo. This challenge is to find those reflections and figure out how to capture them that makes for a great photo.

We are excited to view your submissions each month and look forward to curating your photographs for this next ‘Reflection” showcase.

A recap for the rules and procedure for entry:

For the challenges please post up to FOUR photos to our Flickr Challenge Site and in your title or description include ‘StreetWise  Reflection’.

https://www.flickr.com/groups/2811204@N24/pool/

Please post photos for our monthly showcase here:

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’.

https://www.flickr.com/groups/2811204@N24/pool/

Please post photos for our monthly showcase here:

https://www.flickr.com/groups/2750883@N25

We look forward to seeing your photos.

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” Robert Frank

We were thrilled and particularly moved by your photos submitted to our StreetWise Flickr group and chose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines  “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying on too much aping. We therefore feel that aping should be kept to a minimum  cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a grain or texture is ok but we would like to see you steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art-oriented or painterly.”

Thank you so much for participating and inspiring us with your images  once again, it was difficult to choose only a relatively few images from all those that were submitted.
