The Photographic Angle Free Photography Competition – POCKET PHOTOGRAPHY

When Instagram first came onto the photography scene back in 2010 it was quickly hailed as the new Polaroid. Certainly, the dominant square format of Instagram, the filters that the app uses and the act of sharing are all reminiscent of what Polaroid was best known for.

Polaroid was used to document ephemeral moments in everyday life; casual snapshots of family time, social gatherings, holidays, and any other moments that are worthy of documentation. But as Polaroid cameras used film, which was quite expensive, each image taken was carefully considered to make sure it counted.

But the technology afforded by smart phones means that these casual snapshots have taken on a new direction. In the social media age, apps like Instagram, whilst replicating the Polaroid aesthetic, are even more focused on sharing. What used to be casual snapshots have become increasingly curated and styled images designed to look like everyday life but actually representing a more beautiful, more perfect existence created to gain approval from a social following.

With this competition, we are looking for your best examples of pocket photography inspired by Polaroid and Instagram. Using the square format, we would like you to use modern technology (any device is fine, doesn’t have to be a smart phone) to take carefully thought out creative shots. Instead of taking 15 shots and choosing the best, make that first shot count.

Contest Prize & TERMS

PRIZE DETAILS: Capture the moment with the Hama Timer Remote Release DCC (Digital Camera Connecting) System Base. With this Remote you can capture a beautiful flower coming into bloom over the course of an entire day. The timer itself allows automatic as well as manual shots (single and continuous) with use of the 2-stage shutter release button (autofocus, shutter release) for manual individual shots only. Use of the user defined triggering function allows the observation of a person, animal or event over time without the need of having to be standing behind the camera as you can set time-shifted infinite shooting with intervals.
