Flickr Photo of the Week

Categorized Under: Visual Arts

Congratulations to Jesse Scroggins of Lewisville, the winner of this week’s Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is Jesse’s first win. He follows last week’s winner, Sam Wilson.

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.

And now, here’s more from Jesse:

Title of photo: Apretado y Guapachoso
Equipment used: Canon 550D, Canon 28mm f1.8, 4 strobes fired wirelessly
Tell us more about your photo: This photograph was taken in Margo Jones Performance Hall at Texas Woman’s University for marketing purposes. The dance represented in this photograph is titled Apretado y Guapachoso and was choreographed by Jose Zamora. I have to thank my wife, Amanda Jackson, for introducing me to do photography for the dance department there. She is graduating from TWU with an MFA in Dance this weekend.
