iPhoneography Contest Time

I’ve entered a couple of photos in the recent Hipstamtic contest. This time around it is sponsored by W Magazine and the theme is “transformation”.

The winner will shoot a story for wmagazine.com’s Street Style channel, as the W editors’ favorite entry.

10 runners up will win a limited edition copy of W The Forty Years book signed by W’s editors. Runners up will be determined as 5 entries with the most Facebook votes and 5 entries chosen by W editors.

Winning either of these would be super awesome. This is where I get down on my knees and beg for you to take time out of your busy schedule to vote for me. I’ve entered two photos and, of course, being a cocky artist (I’m not really, I swear), I think both of them have a good chance of winning. A quick glance at the Leaderboard tells you that the “transformation” theme has been loosely interpreted by most entrants. Also, a lot of people have not stuck the requirement of using the limited edition W Mag HipstaPak lens and film that is currently a free download from the Hipstamatic app.

Both of my entries happen to be photos of James who, coincidently, happens to be transforming right before our eyes. He just started seventh grade a few weeks ago and has taken to sagging his pants embarrassingly low and the shaggy hair jetting out from under his ball cap seems to have grown overnight like a weed in the garden.

I think this photo couldn’t fit the “transformation” theme any better. It’s not often you see a twelve year old wearing a chef’s coat and working in a kitchen. What could be more transformative than putting on a uniform? It puts you in a different mindset and makes you feel much more professional. And I’ve got to tell you, James took himself much more seriously wearing the chef’s coat while helping out in the kitchen. I should mention that this photo wasn’t staged at all. This is the scene I walked in on when I entered the kitchen a few days ago. I simply told him to turn around from whatever task he was working on so I could snap a quick photo.


“Bubble Blowing On Sunday Afternoon”
Ranked #187 at time of posting this blog.

To vote click on the photo or go to http://community.hipstamatic.com/submissions/236272. At the bottom of the page click the FB “Like” button. Once it posts to your FB page the vote is counted. Voting for this photo ends in four days (Sept. 22, 2012). Of course, the sooner you vote the better.

I think this photo also fits the theme perfectly. A bubble is in a constant state of transformation. As is the sun in the background.

Thank you for indulging in my dream of winning a photo contest. It is much appreciated.
