The Viewfinder — CALL FOR ENTRIES for Volume II — ReSteem for 1SBD!

2 months ago
71 in photography

The Viewfinder Steemzine is a spontaneously published ezine available exclusively on Steemit.com. In these volumes we will highlight the work of some of the best photographers and writers currently using the platform. Volume I was released on September 21st, 2016. Due to low submissions, there was never a Volume II until (hopefully!) now. There are now more users here on Steemit, especially interacting within the photography tag.

CALL FOR ENTRIES

Volume II — Black & White

I am looking for high quality photographs and writing for a one time publishing in this ezine. The photos can be of anything, in any style. The writing should be either a Behind-The-Scenes of a photo or a shoot that you were involved in, or tutorials, DIY, gear reviews, etc. You can submit by sending an email to jamtaylor@protonmail.com, please include your username in the email. Alternatively, you can message me on steemit.chat.

Have a look at Volume I

The images must not have been published on Steemit before, and of course they must be yours. By submitting these images you confirm that you own all copyrights associated with the images and consent for me to post them from my account for the agreed upon compensation below.

Payments (based on SD rewards) for this volume will be:

Photographs: 10% x4
Writing: 15% x3
Behind The Photo: 15%
Editor: 0% (SP Only)

The content of Volume II will be reflected by the amount of submissions received. I reserve the right to postpone the volume if the submissions are not adequate.


ReSteem this post to get the word out, far and wide.

I'll send you 1 SBD as thanks :) *

I RESTEEMed this post as I think this is a very good idea. I can see there are many discussion about how to put Crypto Currency in real life application, and having a magazine backed by Steem dollar seems to be an excellent idea (hope that I didn't get the idea wrong).
I am no expert in all technical knowledges of Crypto but supporting ideas like this one, I can still apply my little resources.

Question: from volume I, all the articles are related to photography. So I am expecting articles needed for volume II are also the same, is this correct? Or can I submit something totally not related to photography?

Yes, as of right now The Viewfinder is a photography zine, but a general crypto related zine might work out if somebody wants to action it!

I believe since Steemit is now more popular so too will this ezine grow. I'm neither a writer or photographer by any sense of the imagination but I like your idea!

I've only posted two items that I might deem worthy of being published as a short story...if it helps you with some content by all means feel free to use them... Resteemed

Thanks for reaching out. At this time I'm looking for writing on photography, but these could include experiences while on photoshoots, working with 'celebrity' photographers, and that sort of thing.

Resteemed :) I have an excellent black and white photo that I am going to send to you. Do you have any requirements regarding the size of the image?

·
71
  ·  2 months ago

I post my images at 900px wide because the current layout is less than 900px and it makes for fast loading / low bandwidth especially if there's a lot of images in the post. So I think around 1000px @ 72dpi would be good.

Excuse me, I don't understand what you mean by "behind the photo", could you please explain or clarify how its different from the "writing" portion?

·
71
  ·  2 months ago

So what I mean is a little background on how a shot was composed, or about the photoshoot itself. What went in to creating the photograph. It's not really different to the other writing but I want it to specifically be showing how the photograph was made. The author of that gets the same % as the other writers :) but those other things could be listicles, gear reviews and that sort of thing.

I have tons of photographs, but my writing is that of a 5 year old. Sounds like this requires both skills? Upvoted and resteemed. Sample of my work below

That's pretty cool. I'd like to try some infrared stuff some time.

The writing needs to be a bit better than a 5 year old, but I suggest you give it a shot, submit it, and see what happens :) Tell us about some experiences on a photo shoot, or interviewing an old photographer. That stuff is also applicable!

·

Thanks, infrared is alot of fun and so much easier then the old days of film. I may submit something and step it up to a ten year old!
