Announcing 2017’s Worldwide Flickr Photowalk

9 August, by Zee Jenkins[ —]

The time has come again, #FlickrFam, to band together with photographers around the world for a global photowalk. This year’s Worldwide Flickr Photowalk theme is “Monuments and Historic Places” and we’re working with our friends in the Wikimedia community in support of the Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 (WLM) photography competition.

WLM is the largest annual photography competition in the world, but with a cool twist. All the images are freely licensed and can be used on Wikipedia or other free-knowledge projects. Given that Flickr is already home to the largest collection of Creative Commons works in the world (with 400+ million images), this seemed like a perfect fit for us!

No matter where you are in the world, there are likely thousands of monuments to photograph near you. WLM organizers are setting up lists of monument IDs by country so you can find the officially recognized monuments in your area. If you don’t see a list for your country, you can still organize or participate in a Flickr photowalk; we’ll be sure the WLM organizers know there is interest in your country for 2018.

Check the list of Flickr Photowalks in the group discussion thread here. If you don’t see one for your city or region, you can organize your own. Just start a Flickr Group, Facebook Event, Meetup, and/or Eventbrite, and post a link in the discussion comments. We’ll add it to the list and help publicize on the official Flickr social media accounts.

To automatically add your photos to the Flickr Worldwide Photowalks Group and have them invited to the official WLM country competitions, use the tag #FlickrPhotowalk and #WLM2017 on your images. Be sure to also tag the monument ID and the dataset (if applicable) for the photo. It would be useful to also geolocate the image on the Flickr map if your camera doesn’t automatically do this.

Important! For your photos to be considered for WLM, you will also need to set their copyright to CC BY, CC BY-SA, or CC0. You can do this on the Flickr photopage of the images you want to submit to the contest. Or, if you have experience uploading to Wikimedia Commons, you can do so directly there (for example, the cultural heritage sites in Balochistan, Pakistan here).

  • The When: The Wiki Loves Monuments competitions are open for submissions throughout September 2017. The exact start and end dates can vary from country to country. We’ll provide more details as the contest approaches.
  • The Why: The main idea behind Wiki Loves Monuments is to take pictures of monuments located in participating countries and to upload them during the competition to Wikimedia Commons under a free license for use on Wikipedia and its sister projects. Wiki Loves Monuments is a focused social formula for encouraging people to preserve cultural heritage.
  • The Where: Over 35 countries have already organized competitions for Wiki Loves Monuments 2017. View the full list here and join a photowalk near you. If there isn’t one, make one! :)
  • The How: During the month of September, take photos of monuments in your area and add them to the Flickr Worldwide Photowalk group using the tags #FlickrPhotowalk and #WLM2017. Set copyright on the images to CC BY, CC BY-SA, or CC0 to allow them to be invited to national competitions and for use on Wikipedia. Add the monument ID number as a tag for reference and cataloging. If you are interested in coordinating a photowalk in your country, create a Facebook event or Meetup page for it and comment in the Group Discussion with a link. We’ll add it to the master list of photowalk locations.

Happy Moon Day!

20 July, by Leticia Roncero[ —]

July 20th is Moon Day, an occasion to remember and celebrate the day man first landed on the moon. On this day in 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set the first human feet on a surface other than Earth, and Armstrong spoke the famous phrase, “that’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The primary objective of the Apollo 11 mission was to complete a goal set by American President John F. Kennedy on May 25, 1961: perform a crewed landing on the moon and return safely to Earth. Additional objectives included photographing the lunar surface, deploy scientific equipment, improve designs for spacecraft and rocketry, and document the experience with still and motion picture cameras.

In October 2015, Flickr became home to a collection of more than 8,400 un-processed, high-resolution images from the NASA moon missions uploaded by The Project Apollo Archive. The collection, available for viewing and for download, includes original scans from the Hasselblad cameras the astronauts used to document their missions, including some of the most iconic space photos in History. We invite you to enjoy Moon Day and relive this historic day by visiting the many Public Domain images from the landing available on Flickr! We’ve also created a commemorative Flickr gallery here. Tell us in a comment which photo is your favorite from the Apollo Mission!

A Light Ninja With Two-Dollar Tubes

19 July, by Zee Jenkins[ —]

“When I saw it in the camera I knew this was the thing. These $2 tubes were more impactful than the 360 rig, which cost thousands of dollars.”

Eric’s commercial work combines techniques, leveraging 32 cameras fixed to a 360-degree rig to create an immersive photographic experience in the dark.

He and his team create a 3D image by combining individual shots from each camera on the rig (bullet time photography). Doing that for multiple images over a 1 to 6-second time frame allows them to create a short, 360 video (stop-motion). While dressed in all black, Eric wields a light source by hand to add a new element to contrast the model during the shots (light painting).

Eric has done commercial 360-degree collaborations and tours with technology brands like Adobe, Intel, Microsoft, and HP at events like South by Southwest, Coachella, and TEDxMontreal.

In his studio, Eric mostly worked with dancers. He described them as professional and effective. They can do amazing or intricate moves and hold poses with an athletic precision most individuals cannot.

“Most of the dancers I worked with were friends. The first time I worked with Kim in the studio she was so precise it brought a clarity to the project.”

A year later the two worked together again, spending five nights in the studio experimenting with lights, poses, lighting props, and the last shot (a long exposure using a light tube) yielded a circle of light, a tube halo. They knew they had something.

Since then everything outside of his commercial 360 work has been about the tubes. Eric and Kim have traveled thousands of miles, taken thousands of photos in remote locations around the world, and have built a global community of photographers connected through various social media platforms.

“Everything’s about the tubes. They’re easy, accessible, and tactile.”

It took a few months of constant tinkering to perfect the process, but Eric’s got it down. He dresses in all black, like a ninja, and holds a camera remote in one hand and a light tube in the other. While Kim strikes and holds a pose he triggers a 1-second shutter release and moves the light to create shapes behind her. In a long exposure, anything in black will disappear if it is moving. The remaining elements in the photograph remain … Kim, the landscape, and the light. The images are transfixing.

For Eric, the best part about using light tubes is that they’re so accessible for all levels of photographers. The plastic tubes he uses were purchased at Home Depot and use a handheld flash light to turn it into a wand, almost like a light saber.

He has written blog posts on many different sites and has tube DIY videos on his Youtube page that teach how to create tubes for different types of photos. In teaching, he has also learned more. The Eric Paré Learn Group on Facebook has over 13,000 active members actively practicing and building upon the initial tube tutorials Eric created.

Adding sparklers, strobe lights, foil or color variations to the tubes are all suggestions or practices from the group that have allowed these light wands to grow in both popularity and refinement. Here are a few of the results:

“Right now I’m having fun with simple techniques applied to bigger technologies,” Eric said. After a 2-year-anniversary show with HP this weekend in NYC, Eric and Kim will be road tripping across the US in search of some gorgeous, vast landscapes to photograph in.
