Welcoming submissions for Festival of the Photograph slideshow

As part of the June 2007 Festival of the Photograph

in Charlottesville, Virginia, festival organizers have generously offered to host a slideshow of images that would include members of the Lightstalkers community. We are tentatively calling the show The Human Condition.

Andy Levin

has graciously offered to help with the selection process. Photographers are invited to submit up to five images directly to Andy via email, andyimages10001@yahoo.com. (We are toying with the idea of doing a POD exhibit catalog down the road, when we might ask you to resubmit higher res versions of your images.) Andy has promised to make the selections as inclusive of all interested LSers as possible. (A big thanks to Jon Golden, the technical producer of the festival. Jon also happens to be an LSer who has been an advocate for including as many LSers as possible in the event.)

Image Requirements

- Submit up to five images, preferably in a zip file. Jon. G. says the images need to fit in a 1920×1080 frame (35mm = 1625×1080) saved as JPEG (max) or TIFF. Min. res of 72 DPI. (Maximum height of 1080; maximum width of 1920.) Note that since this is a public presentation, the organizers ask that you remember that the host city might consider certain images unsuitable for outdoor display. Include your full name (both given and family names) as part of the filename, and number your submissions sequentially (e.g. johnsmith_1, johnsmith_2, etc.) For those worried about color calibration, the projector will be using the Adobe RGB 1998 color space. Please include IPTC information on all image submissions with at least the proper copyright/byline data.

Theme

- To give the slideshow a rough thematic structure, we are looking to the great Family of Man exhibit curated by Edward Steichen for inspiration. (The original exhibit was “grouped thematically around subjects pertinent to all cultures, such as love, children, and death. […] The photographs included in the exhibition focused on the commonalties that bind people and cultures around the world.”) Photographers are encouraged but not required to submit images that might fit under this loose theme.

If you have any questions about the submissions process or the slideshow, please post them here.

Great Wayne. The tech specs is 1080 pixels on the long side, right? Jpegs set to what compression 8? Any other tech specs we need to be aware of?

the images need to fit in a 1920×1080 frame (35mm = 1625×1080) saved as JPEG (max) or TIFF. Min. res of 72 DPI

1920 is long side/ 1080 is short side / an un-cropped horizontal 35mm is approx 1620×1080 - if you want to crop then 1920×1080 is your max -—- a full frame Canon 5D/1ds Mx image is 1620×1080 / 72 dpi minimum
maximum jpg with photoshop is a 12 or save as a Tiff

Just to clarify: It’s 1080 on the vertical side, right, not just on the “short” side? I have a couple of verticals; I don’t want to make them too big. If I made them 1080 on the short side (which would be the horizontal side) I’m guessing they would be too tall.

So … 1080 is maximum height?

by Michelle Posey | 10 Mar 2007 18:03 | Little Rock, Arkansas, United States | | Report spam→
Just to reiterate a couple of points, everyone who submits will be represented with at least one shot……secondly, regardless of my personal preferences, all styles are going to be represented here, so don’t feel that the shots need to fit any particular look or feel. But shots that describe the human condition are going to fit our concept better than say, landscapes.

Nothing is going to be shown that hasn’t been submitted or permission gotten, so I will be emailing for permission on some images that I have already marked, and I am definitely going to actively solicit images from some of you.

What about image titles and captions?

by BignoseTW | 11 Mar 2007 07:03 | Taipei, Taiwan | | Report spam→
The only IPTC captioning you need is copyright/byline, since the only information that might be projected is credits. (Looking into whether there is a simple way to extract it for projection so that it doesn’t need to be done manually.) Fuller captions are, of course, welcomed. W

Try to get the pictures in earlier rather than later. Wayne isn’t going to set a deadline, but at some point getting work into the projection will be problematic. If you put pictures into your gallery and email me or Wayne link to them we can go from there….that is very efficient.

Anyway, this is an unofficial Lightstalkers projection, and there is no money being charged to view
this projection— its free to the public. And any uses other than the projection in June will be cleared with participating photographing.

Having said that so far we have a tremendous range of images, and this is a great opportunity to all get our work together to show as a whole. The people on this board do represent a certain concept of photography and its clear to me in looking at the work that its an important COMMUNITY of photographers that pass through here and that we define a certain genre of photographer, even more than any of the traditional groups or the kind of loose structure of Flickr, although there is a lot of stylistic variation, a philosophy in what we are, all arguments about tehnique are put aside for this.

If you haven’t sent work in please do.

OK, Neal take your time. For the next two weeks I can work closely with anyone who email’s pictures, take the time to look at your website, etc. Although it may not seem that way, my job is more organizational on this than anything else, and I can’t reach out to everyone….so please don’t wait for me— send the pictures. This takes an incredible amount of time and I really should be thinking about how to pay the rent in two months, but hopefully that will take care of itself. I can’t go through everyone stuff though surfing the LS “contacts” can be fun. :)

I have got great work from Christian Als, Manca Juvan, Ami Vitale, James Delano, Alex Reshaun, Philipp Engelhorn, Ahakim Seri, Gina von Hoof, Imants, and a lot more people, and lots more promised, even Bruno but he is off in Iran being productive. Good for him.

Hi, Michael,
We are toying with the idea of doing an exhibit catalog, maybe done as a POD book, unless we can convince someone to help us publish it. Andy has uncovered a lot of wonderful images, so, who knows…? Maybe someone will like the idea of a project pulling together work from so many different photographers from around the world? Maybe a web site? Makes sense to pull the slideshow together first, though, before we turn our attention to something like a book. W

My though is that since most of us contributers will not see what thу final result looks like, as most of us will not be going, it could be slapped into a little flash slideshow and stuck on youtube or something. I think we already have a website — this one, no?

Andy: I was actually going to offer that first but didn’t because I thought we wanted strict reportage, whaddlya have?

I’ve seen some pretty good shots taken with modern camera phones…I guess the decision should be based on whether the photographs are good, not whether the sensor was in a camera body or a cell phone.

Hi, Graham,
We have some time before we hit Jon Golden’s hard and fast deadline for us. Andy has been willing to keep our own deadline fluid, but he has also noted that you still want to get your images in sooner rather than later—past a certain point, it will become very difficult to include additional submissions in the slideshow. Thanks, W

So far we have a very impressive collection, one that speaks to what I think is a shared vision in the LS community. We all have our differences about techniques and this is something we can discuss and debate, but in the end our approach, whether it be photojournalistic, fine art, whatever, is remarkably consistent. As far as culling the work I am trying to be fair, obviously someone who has a large body of work on many unusual themes is going to get a bit more play than someone just starting out, and thats only fair I think, but having said that some real gems are coming from surprising places. :)

Just an update on the “project.” :)

Considering the number of war photographers on LS I have gotten few images….I know a bunch of you have promised but so far I do not have. Still looking for Gaza too, and something on any Arabs, not dead maimed, etc everyday life would be welcome addition! The areas that are strong now are Africa, Eastern Europe/Russia (great stuff—not surprisingly the former Soviet Union and that bloc seems to be abundantly populated with very skilled photographers), India is well-represented, China (OK, but more needed)……still looking for Brazil, anything that deals with the reality of middle class life anywhere, and not surprisingly anything that shows the rich. We are doing a great job on the poor, but somehow its one-dimensional across the board geographically, as far as that goes. Also although some of the best stuff is color, we have a lot of b.w. Anyway…..please keep the pictures coming in, this is going to be a wonderful show. This is all about your hard work, needless to say the effort in photographing what I have already in represents decades of man/woman hours.

Andy, do you need any further info on the images I sent you?

by Tony Reddrop | 25 Mar 2007 01:03 | Melbourne, Australia | | Report spam→
Not really, Tony. its a projection so to a certain extent the photos have to be self-explanatory, or at least interesting as images without necessarily having a text. If you want to send along more images from that set that I haven’t seen, send them along ZIPPED, but keep in mind that at least for the projection, there isn’t going to be a lot of room of explantion, other than what is in the pictures—so for pictures in a series they need to be interesting as single images too.

Florence, Bill. Certainly not, but I am not going to promise everyone a picture at this point— I can only try. The level of the work is very high and is representative of the commitment and talent of the photographers.

If you feel that you have work that contribute to the theme of “The Human Condition.” then by all means please send images 1080 on the short side, jpegs level 10, stuffed or zipped into a folder with your name in the file.

Pictures that define a place as well as tell a story tend to stand out, as well as images or stories with a point of view.

Marina is sending you an image today and I’ll be sending you my image by Wednesday (sorry for
the delay, it was a “computer problem” we’d beein dealing with the last 2 weeks…….

We have a question concerning the “IPTC Information Line”…later referred to by Wayne as “the only IPTC captioning you need is copyright/byline, since the only information that might be projected is credits. (Looking into whether there is a simple way to extract it for projection so that it doesn’t need to be done manually.)…”

What exactly are you referring to? What would you like us to do? Should we provide a copyright/byline under each image, or is this something that will be provided at the end of the show….we just want to make sure we follow your criteria….What should we do with the individual images?….

This is how I am doing the credits….. and its what will be projected. If this was a story, the credits will drop out after the opening image.

Andy, sorry to be so late but just noticed this great invitation. I’ve read all the other posts, and have only one question….just what IPTC fields do you want us to use? If you have a script/procedure that extracts it, thought I would try to make it as easy as possible. I have several photos I think are on topic, including one of a woman I think you will like. Thanks.

Mostly I need your full name in the title, and the files zipped or stuffed into folder, and any kind of caption in the IPTC I can read. That way I download the file into Iview (plug) on my Mac (plug) then open with Stuff-It Deluxe (plug) and then use my Photoshop CS2 actions to resize it and enter your credit and a short description (yes, another plug.) So its four clicks….

Also folks there is a think called a PM….everyone does not need to know that you might be wanting to send something, unless of course its just a plug. :)

Due to increased volume of pictires coming in a couple of changes in what we have been doing.

1. All images have to be in stuffed or zipped folders. These are folders that have been compressed by Stuff-It or whatever does the PC zip files.

2. Your full name must be in the title of each picture.

3. Photos must be sized to 1080 pixels on the vertical side, with whatever the corresponding horizontal side becomes, or larger, as long as they are not so big that they will bounced by Yahoo. I believe the limit is 10 meg but check.

4. A brief caption must be somewhere in the IPTC field.

5. I will look at stories of 5-12 pictures….and if they warrent, get back to you.

6. I will not take any images after May 1.

Thanks…

Hi Andy,

Was looking at your example image above… I assume that you applied a canvas to the image? So if the image sive is 1625×1080: what’s the canvas size? And if you did apply the canvas should it be no larger then 1920×1080? FYI: I’m using Adobe 8.0.

p.s. Please exuse if this sounds like a stupid question. Rather new to this: still have a lot to learn..

Thanks

I got your images Alain, no promises on the use. If you want to send more stuffed or zipped into a folder I can look but at this point its going to take a really strong image to get into the presentation.


Robert, I wouldn’t worry about the canvas— read through the thread and follow the instructions.

Ben, I think anything photograph taken by a human could possibly describe the human condition, landscapes or whatever……but for this series shots with people seem to be what folks are sending, so I am trying to be consistent with that in the edit.

For the most part the images are set, so there is no need to continue sending images unless I have contacted you directly.

I am waiting to get the details about exactly where the work will be displayed.

The good news is that there will be absolutely no fee charged to view the projection….which I am very much in favor of.

Speaking of bars and projections, this reminds me of an old buddy of mine who when he goes to a bar strategically picks a place equidistant between two TVs. Why? So when he starts seeing double the two screens come together as one!

I’m not sure if this was said before but I’m afraid, I lost track in such a long thread.

Will we have a chance to watch the slidshow somewhere on the web?

by Alexandre Vaz | 27 Apr 2007 10:04 | Lisbon, Portugal | | Report spam→
Right now the images are for this specific venue and a lot of the photographers signed on with that understanding…..I am not that keen on the web as a way to showcase this work. I think in the longterm we are going to have to get back to walls, and galleries, and the printed page, so in so much as this work could move in that direction I would be supportive, or to have a projection someplace else, maybe as a benefit of some sort, although I think this has to go through November 11th. Many of the folks included rarely post here, every image comes from a member of Lightstalkers. But I would have to get back with the contributors to see what they want to do, and I will do that.

It will run from dusk to probably sunrise.. if not sunrise then to 2am at least – that unfortunately is when the bars close in Virginia.

and to answer the question – it will be near a bar

I am a little busy with the arrival of heat and Jazz Fest, where I am showing/selling prints, but next week we are going to wrap this up for Jon. Just to clarify, please no comparisons to Family of Man, etc. This is just a modest effort to showcase some of the good work that is going on out there that might be a bit under the radar. Although we could do more in terms of narrative, structure, etc the most important consideration has been getting some of the images and stories into any framework, so please forgive the “geographic” skin that I have wrapped this in, but I think it fits all the elements in one place. Anyway, thanks for all bearing with me on this hope it all looks OK, and for anyone left out, apologies, trying to call it as I see it, and there will be other efforts down the line.

I have heard through grapevine that people are wondering about accommodations – it is true that many of the hotels are filled.. BUT we have a great deal going for student Housing at the University of Virginia – and there will be a free shuttle bus to and from the housing area to the festival.

Single Occupancy room = $39/night (including linen service)
Double Occupancy room = $26/night (including linen service)

https://hmstest.housing.virginia.edu/public/conferences/fotp-res.php

In addition there is a shuttle bus from NYC to Charlottesville
http://www.nycshuttle.com/

Also I would suggest that if you have not been to the website recently – a lot more info about events and shows have been added.
