I want to make photography grow on Steemit, build a community based on capturing and sharing experiences from around the world, inspiring and learning from each other while growing with each other.
To stimulate this growth I will focus on the following:
- Sharing my own photography to increase exposure
- Hosts contests to stimulate interaction
- Reward users for sharing their own photography and engaging in the community
- (Future) provide learning content
I will focus on the contests in this article.
While learning about photography it is easier to go out with a clear goal in mind instead of just wandering around(which is still recommended). By choosing categories, which are simply subdomains of photography as a whole, it becomes easier to learn and express oneself. For this reason I have set up 7 different photography categories which I will be watching very closely.
While each contests lasts 7 days
On the following days I will announce my personal top 10 and reward every winner equally with 1 SBD. With 10 SBD a day, 7 days a week, this is about 300 SBD per month in total prize money.
People can submit any day they want as the contests are automatically renewed.
Simply tag your photography with the correct hashtag found above. You can enter multiple categories with one photo, but you can only win once per photo. You can also enter multiple times per category, but it is better and more manageable for me when you participate in multiple categories.
Anything related to food, try to capture your food in a unique way which bests fits the identity of the food.
We are from all over the world and this world we live in is absolutely gorgeous. Capture the beauty of our world and/or what we have build as humanity.
We humans like to build things, and while most of the things we build are functional we also have a tendency to build creative, unique and beautiful things. Culture plays a huge role in how we build.
There is an entire world hidden in macro photography. Capture objects and portray them bigger than they appear to be in real life.
Go out on streets and capture every day incidents and random moments happening all over the world.
I am a huge believer in sports and exercise. This is not about professional sports, but more about all the beautiful things we can do with our bodies and to capture this beauty.
The classic golden hour is the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset when the light becomes more soft and turns more red in colour. This moment is famous for beautiful photography and one of the easiest way to make some amazing photos
