Last month the buzz seemed to be about Facebook celebrating their first 10 years of existence so Flickr’s 10th birthday a few days later seem to pass by without too much of fuss. To celebrate, Flickr has put a little video together of different images (including twelve of my images). I watched it three times before I realised that the images were actually counting up to 10, it’s quite subtle, or maybe I was having a dumb moment!
This is an unabridged version of an article of phone photography tips I wrote for an in store magazine distributed by O2 in the UK. It came off the back of the video I made with O2 in 2012. I thought I would post it now before it goes out of date. I don’t really take photos on my phone anymore, even though I am an avid Instagram user (i’m @lomokev) I’ve been shooting with the Samsung NX 300 (review) and Olympus OM-D E-M1 (review) that I can wirelessly transfer photos to smart phone for easy posting, wireless transfer is becoming a more common on newer cameras. I have also been taking it one step further with the Android powered Samsung Galaxy NX which you can post directly to the internet (review coming soon).
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any montage portraits to my site although I have been trickling them onto my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr. I’ve been posting two a week (new & some from the archive). I will have to up my posting rate as I have 295 montage portraits that are not on my tumblr yet!
I’ve been shooting montage portraits regularly for over three and half years. Over that time I have shot just under 400 portraits, definitely enough for a book which I plan to start working on soon.
All the montage portraits are shot on a Lomo LCA film camera and then are put together from five individual photographs. I recently shot a few of these up in London while being filmed for documentary on film photography by Anton. I will post the London pictures once the film is released.
Brighton swimming pictures used to promote Nouvelles Vagues exhibition at the Palais Da Tokyo in Paris
Three of my photographs of Brighton Swimming club have been used to promote Nouvelles Vagues (New Waves) at Palais De Tokyo. The images are not used in the exhibition itself, the usage was arranged months ago and by coincidence Samsung brought me out to Paris just at the right time to see the images in situ.
Whenever I post montage portraits, I always start by saying I have been a little slack in posting them. This time round that is really true. I have six months’ worth to post so it’s a real best of the best. I shoot portraits of hip people around Brighton for Brighton Source Magazine’s street style section and then every so often I post them here. If you want to read about the featured peoples’ outfits you can read the words that go along with the pictures in the fashion section on the Source’s website.
I also have not posted any of the images to my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr for four months, but that’s about to change as I have lined up a post every three days till the end of January and this time round I will keep it going! If you’re into Tumblr, you can follow along here.
I was originally commissioned to write this article by UK Best Buy for its magazine last summer. If you did not know Best Buy is huge electrical retailer in the US that was briefly in the UK. Soon after I was commissioned to write this piece they closed all the UK stores. I thought that I would let this article see the light of day again on my blog.
Brighton is about to get whole lot more fashion conscious in the upcoming days and it not just people wanting to look respectable for Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee. It’s also Brighton fashion week, so it’s seems like a good time to post the backlog of my montage portraits (published and unpublished) from the last four months of shooting for Brighton Source Magazine. If you would like more regular montage portrait updates check out my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr.
Source Magazine takes a little break in January this means I have a little break from trend spotting. It’s a good thing to as trend spotting in the winter is a little difficult because everyone tends to wear long coats which covers up their styles.
Source have just relaunched there website, not only does it look nice it’s also really easy to find older content. I have been putting my montage portraits on my blog, Flickr, and Tumblr but I only upload the images. Now you read the interviews that source have conducted with featured people all in one place on my author page on their site here.
This month features a male which is pretty unusual so I was really happy they picked the rather dapper Harry Watts fellow photographer and friend. Check him out and the other candidates below.
