If You’ve Ever Asked Me To Review Your Photos, Here’s A Chance — Photo Contest + Camera Bag Giveaway

Photo by Erik Hecht.

[UPDATE: Just returned from a job in Belize and damn…you guys have been busy! 2,000 comments/entries in a week! I’ve been checking out the work -there is some great stuff. TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY (April 24). Any entries after today (at midnight) will miss the deadline and not be considered. Standby for the judging – it’s going to take me a while to get through all these! Thanks for paying attention!]

Hey photo friends, a few weeks ago my staff video guru Erik and I shared a glimpse into an ideal everyday walk-around camera kit. It’s a kit that Erik uses everyday and one that I beg/borrow/steal when not on assignment. Well the good folks over at ThinkTank took note of the love we showed for their Retrospective line of camera bags and sent the studio three of them to do with them whatever we choose. Just so happens we have plenty of camera bags already (2 of the exact models they sent us…), so we want to give these badass bags away to you. So here’s what we’re gonna do:

We wanna see your street photography. Your best everyday photos from being out in the world, covering the earth and actively pursuing the unexpected. Post links to your photos in the comments section of this blog post and we’ll pick 3 favorites and send the winners one of these slick camera bags. A few basic ground rules:

  • You must own the rights to the photos you’re sharing (this should be obvious).
  • You must be cool with us posting your photo (should you win) on a follow-up post announcing the 3 winning photographs.
  • Submit as many images as you want, but please only post direct links to single images, NOT galleries. Don’t make us sort through your portfolio to figure out what photo you’re submitting.
  • This should force you to use a little of your editing / curatorial skills too. Send us links to what you want us to review.

    We’ll leave the contest open for submissions for a week from today and then announce the winners in a follow-up blog post within 10 days of end of contest. Photos will be selected by composition, style, and overall merit as determined by us.

    Happy shooting. If you want to learn more about the bags you’re competing for, check out Erik’s blog post for his detailed thoughts on them, or take a look at ThinkTank’s website for the full specs. Here’s a peak at what we’re giving away. Rugged, stylish, downright awesome (valued at $157.60 each):

    Since I’m not sure how that’s working with timezones you’re currently in and stuff, I’ll give it a try anyway. Sorry if I’m too late, but it’s worth a try ;-)

    You’re doing some great stuff and I hope you enjoy.

    I’ve always found streets to be the most challenging of genre’s so here goes nothing…

    Drat it all, I keep trying to leave comments here and my browser keeps malfunctioning. I entered this photo (http://csdailyphoto.blogspot.com/2013/03/untitled_14.html) because I understood the contest to be about street photography, but looking at the other entries I am seeing a lot of camera aware portraits, digital manipulation, traditional landscape photography, etc. Just wondering if I need to enter something less street photography-ish? Thanks! Hope this post works!!! :^)

    http://www.andrehorton.net/cuba/e5b0714be Was invited to play dominoes. I snuck around the scene and grabbed this. They didn’t know I was American until I opened my mouth and took out a prime lens. :(

    http://www.andrehorton.net/manapalooza/e16f17a49 In Alaska “street photography” is also “forest or camping” photography. I think this picture illustrates a distilled moment in the life of Alaska Men left to their own devices in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness.

    Same here… mine has been awaiting moderation since the 22nd of April. I wonder if it is related with the “at” symbol that figures on Flickr links.

    Last year, I had a chance to meet my “name doppelgänger” who is a musician from Seattle (you should go check out his music! – http://www.krisorlowski.com) who forced me to go by my middle name for my work because he already scatched up my .com

    When he finally cama to NYC for a show at the Rockwood Music Hall on the LES, I was sure to be there. He was kind enough to roll up and down Allen Street with me for a few shots.

    Not sure if this is still considered Street Photography as this was taken on the beach. It wasn’t planned, I was just exploring the city of Ventura, CA for the first time and loved these beach dogs playing together. http://www.flickr.com/photos/auroramagic/5077264934/in/photostream

    On vacation in Firenze, I walked over this bridge and (just like the passersby in the photo) didn’t see this couple; it was only when I reached the end of the bridge that I noticed them. Although the photo isn’t as sharp as I’d like it to be, the mood and emotion made me choose to submit it over some of my other photos …

    [January 2005. A graphic reminder of the tsunami. This train was hit by the rushing waters of the tsunami and killed 1,700 people to become the greatest loss of life in railroad history. I went inside and saw actual hand prints on the windows. One of the hardest things I’ve ever done was soak up that moment without walking away]

    Same problem, Brian. My entry says “awaiting moderation” for a week now. I guess chase and his staff didn’t expect the amount of submissions.

    I’ve been wanting to do some photography before sunrise to try to capture first light for quite some time but to date have kept making excuses …

    I finally got off my backside and out of bed really early to drive into town and capture this one.. Oh i was so stoked at the result and really enjoyed the experience i must say.. it was so peacefull at that time of the morning. it was also amazing at how quickly the light changes prior to sunrise which gave me a myriad of opportunities to capture many great shots. I will definitely do this more often from now on…

    After I purchased my new 50mm lens I went for a walk in Melbourne’s CBD which is full of creative heads and tonnes of graffiti. I came a cross three acrobats which were just about to graduate from circus school and did a little photo shoot in one of the best laneways of Melbourne, Hosier Lane. The photographer invited me to take a couple of shots and this is one of my favorites from that run in.

    These images are pretty old but I wanted to share them.
    The first was taken near the boarder of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, we were actually driving when I saw two small children next to these ponds across from a lake with no parents in sight. http://www.joeydiazphotography.com/haiti/h4a9aad42#h4a9aad42

    The second was taken next to the Seine in Paris, France. We talked to this Saxophone player who was very friendly and let us take some photographs of him. The friend he was with was not as friendly and we left before I could get his contact info so I could send him a print. http://www.joeydiazphotography.com/paris#h50bbdefe

    I took this last December when I was exploring the streets of Venice!

    More of a ‘trail’ photo than street! But a spontaneous photo while on a walk with my family.

    This is a cool idea. Lot of great images already that make me want to go out and shoot more.

    Incidentally, images 2, 3, 4 were actually taken with the same camera+lens combo mentioned in Erik’s blog post (OMD EM-5 and 14-150). That article lead me directly to buying the lens. I’ve been very happy with it but I never would’ve considered it if not for that article, so thanks.
