Flickr Photo of the Week

by Stephen Becker 4 Nov 2009 8:15 AM

Congratulations to Wade Griffith of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


Congratulations to Wade Griffith of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Wade was the third ever winner of our contest and has contributed more photos to our Flickr pool that anyone. His winning photo is part of a series he shot recently. We liked the collection so much that we decided to run some of the other photos below. Wade follows last week’s winner, Hector Arencibia.

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, 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 more from Wade:

Title of photo: Finishing Touches

Equipment Used: This was all photographed with my Nikon D90, mostly using a wide-angle Sigma 10-20mm lens for that documentary, photojournalistic look.

Tell us more about your photo: The photo Finishing Touches was one picture in a series of B&W images that I shot of my older brother getting a half sleeve tattoo on his arm for the first time. He sat for a couple of 7 hour sessions on two different Sunday afternoons, and I was there about half the time to document it. A good friend of mine, Chris Clements, is an award winning tattoo artist at the new shop on Lower Greenville in Dallas called Stainless Studios. I was also shooting the photos to promote the business as well.
