Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to KT Shiue of Denton, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! KT last won in November for this experimental photo. He follows last week’s winner, Chris Cast.

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.

Now here’s more from KT:

Title of photo: Untitled

Equipment used: Nikon D80, Nikon Speedlight SB-700

Tell us more about your photo: This is a study and experiment of an early photographic technique called “chronophotography.” Inspired by the antique photography technique, I tried to capture the pattern of the motion of an ordinary object. However, instead of moving the object, I spin the camera to create the effect. The umbrella in this photo is actually in the same position all the time. While I spin the camera, the umbrella opens up as the camera is spinning.
