June Photo Contest: Urban and Rural Decay
The brand new contest location for the Focal Press Monthly Photography Contest is now open!
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.
