The theme for the June contest is “URBAN and RURAL DECAY” sponsored by Urban and Rural Decay Photography: How to Capture the Beauty in the Blight by J. Dennis Thomas.

Urban and Rural Decay Photography: How to Capture the Beauty in the Blight offers expert tips and techniques for capturing breathtaking photographs of decay scenes, whether in urban or rural settings. Author J. Dennis Thomas guides you through the history of decay photography, shows you what equipment you will need, and discusses digital, film and HDR capture and composition. The book addresses which artistic considerations work best for the kinds of shots that capture a moment and convey a story. He also provides you with important safety advice and matters of the law when entering and working with decaying structures.

J. Dennis Thomas, author of Urban and Rural Decay Photography is our guest judge this month.

J. Dennis Thomas is a photographer and author based in Austin, TX. He has been photographing a wide assortment of subjects for over two decades and has published over two dozen books and dozens of articles. His photographs have appeared in many prestigious magazines, including Rolling Stone, SPIN, and Country Weekly, and have been displayed in galleries across the country.
