Congratulations to Chris Cast, the winner of our Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Chris has a pretty sweet Web site where you can see a piece that he displayed as part of his one-man art show earlier this year. Chris follows last week’s winner, Jacob Rasmussen.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to 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 another 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 Chris
Title: Fire Tree
Equipment: Canon XSI with a Canon 18-55mm lens, no flash. Instead, I relied on the ambient lighting from a camp fire near the tree and held the camera very steady.
Tell us more about your photo: I used Photoshop to create the “fire effect” on the tree so, it’s interesting to compare the original with the final:
I have a fine art background and work for a local agency as an Associate Creative Director. For the last few years, I’ve been running around taking pictures and turning them into “art”. I have about 140 of these experiments on my Flickr site.
