About LA-MAF: New Kind of Daguerreotype
This group is now open for submissions as one of several specific challenges being posed to the community. The best entries will be selected for exhibition in the LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012.
For more on the festival take a look at our LA-MAF website at http://www.iPhoneArt.com/LA-MAF/
To enter your work here, please read the following artistic challenge:
One interesting aspect of iPhoneography is that even though it uses the latest technology, the results often have a low-tech feel. Images created with these state-of-the-art devices can look like something from a lomo, a holga, a diana â¦ or maybe even a homemade pin-hole camera. These older devices often produced light leaks, inadvertent blurs, and other anomalies that were intriguing.
Today, we use high-tech apps such as slow-shutter or certain hipstamatic filters to recreate the feel of these old processes. And so we come full circle, back to the future, where everything old is new again.
CHALLENGE: Create images with a vintage feel that evoke the old daguerreotype images. The subject matter is wide open, but try to give it an old world or historical feel. Once we make our selection of images from this group, we will print them with a method that is both surprising and new. (And no we're not talking about prints on metal, this will be something quite different.)
All works submitted to this open group will be considered, but only a few will be chosen for printing and exhibition at LA-MAF, so give it some thought and try to come up with something truly unique.
Will you be releasing the technique to us all or is it a private or proprietary business?
We are looking here for work made on your mobile device, not on your DSLR.
We will accept submissions up through July 15.
Can the photo be taken on a dslr and then edited on iPhone?
Yes no problem submitting an image to multiple groups if it is relevant to both.
Can we submit a photo in this group that is the same as one we submitted for the poster?
