LoFi’s Flickr Gallery is Returning: Newer, Better, and Now It Counts.
On a Sunday, exactly four years ago tomorrow, August 29, Life In LoFi started a new feature that pretty much changed weekends on numerous iPhoneography, iPhone, and mobile device websites. We posted 11 images in our first Faved On Flickr, one of the very first weekly iPhoneography showcases on the web.
Thanks to iPhoneographer Cindy Patrick, Lofi’s weekly Flickr Gallery returns soon. Cindy and I have made some changes so that it’s newer and better. Images selected for our LoFi’s galleries may also appear in upcoming brick-and-mortar iPhoneography shows. Our new Flickr showcase counts. More info after the jump. >>>
Our Flickr gallery has been on hiatus for the past few months, but will return very soon. Our redesigned gallery for the new showcase enables the viewer to browse each image individually at their own pace, rather than display a stack or barrage of images in a blogpost. Lofi’s new showcase will be limited to 18 selections.
Now, when you submit your works through our Flickr Group, your are also submitting them for consideration in a real-world gallery show. Life In LoFi is partnering with several galleries and mobile photography events. Each quarter, the best images selected to our showcase will be reviewed and judged. The very best image or images will be selected to appear in one of the high-profile brick and mortar exhibitions. We’ll have more details soon.
iPhoneographer Cindy Patrick has joined Life In LoFi to curate the new gallery. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Cindy in person several times. She’s a professional photographer who turned to her iPhone as a creative tool in 2010 and began creating the distinctive style of art she is known for today. Her work has been shown at galleries and museums in four countries and across the United States, as well as having several selections in previous Faved On Flickr galleries here. She’s got a great eye and I’m very excited to add her vision to LoFi’s mix.
How To Enter Your Submissions
Submissions are open to everyone with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. To be considered for selection, simply post your images to Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. Images must be shot and processed using only an iDevice. Sundays, we’ll feature a brand new showcase of more great iPhone photography.
There are many other outstanding works posted in our Flickr group. Be sure to stop by there and have a look.
Along with Cindy, I think this is going to be an exciting new venture. I’m really happy to hve Cindy on board and that LoFi will once again be sharing the great iPhoneography and iPhone Art that you are creating.
