This weekends focus:
Art in Unusual Places
The other day I was reading a piece by Chase Jarvis, about a photographer Jonas Lara who was arrested for documenting two graffiti artists at work illegally. First off I find this insulting to photographers everywhere, and think that photogs should have the right to photograph what ever they want if it falls in line with documenting history. So on that note, this weekend I encourage you as photographers to go out and find those creative pieces of art off of the beaten path, you never know what treasure you may find.
Each Friday we will post a Weekend Photo Focus (also hash tagged on Twitter as #weekendphotofocus) on a certain subject, something to spark your creativity. An empty weekend for a photographer, is like an empty canvas, we could always use something to do when we have nothing planned right? So with this in mind we created this series, one that will get you out doing what you love. The premise is simple: snap some photos over the weekend dealing with the weekends focus, and if you send them to us, or Tweet them to us, we will post them for others to see. Having a focus will help us as artists & photographers see things that we might not always see, make us take a shot at something we might otherwise have not. In seeing other photogs chase after the same focus, it can only breed even more creativity in our own work.
At the weekends close, we will follow up our weekend focus, with what we found on the Web (including some of the photos sent from you) that falls in line with our focus. We hope you join in the fun and help us spread the creativity.
