Congratulations to John Johnson of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!  This is the second time John has won of our little contest. His last win came in Sept. 2012. He follows last week’s winner, Briget Murphy.

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.

johnNow, here’s more from John.

Title of photo: Salvage

Equipment: Sinar 4×5 view camera, studio lighting, tungsten and black lights

Tell us more about your photo: During my downtime in the studio I set this up with various pieces of metal fixtures and hardware I’d acquired over the years. I wanted to create a very industrial image using many different light sources. I ended up employing studio lighting for an overall exposure and different tungsten sources and even some black lights to highlight different parts of the image. All said and done, I probably exposed the 4×5 film at least 8 times with the mentioned light sources to get the final image. It was all in-camera with no photoshop (old school ).  ; )
