Congratulations to Guy Reynolds of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Guy’s a regular contributor to our contest, which he last won in October. He follows last week’s winner, Jen Wang.

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 Guy:

Title of photo: Dallas Skyline
Equipment used: I used a dSLR with a modified body cap to make pinhole images.
Tell us more about your photo: This was shot while driving on I-45 headed north towards US 75 just after merging from I-30.  It’s a three-second exposure right about dusk.

Digital pinhole sounds rather like an oxymoron, but it blends the oldest way of making images with the latest technology. And it’s easy and I enjoy the results. Most of what I shoot with it is landscapes while driving. Since I don’t look through the viewfinder (you can’t see anything anyway) I just point the camera in the general direction of something and fire off several frames and see what I come up with.
Here’s a link to a blog post I did that explains in a little more detail about how you can be a pinholer too.
