Street Photography


Street photography can be a really fun type of photography, but there is usually some confusion on what street photography consists of. It isn't just about going out on the street and taking pictures without any sort of goal. There is an art to it and you want to be able to tell a story with your images.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Street photography that can help you if you are a bit confused on what this theme is:

Street photography, also sometimes called candid photography, is photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places. Although there is a difference between street and candid photography, it is usually subtle with most street photography being candid in nature and some candid photography being classifiable as street photography. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. Though people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be of an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.

The street photographer can be seen as an extension of the flâneur, an observer of the streets (who was often a writer or artist).

Framing and timing can be key aspects of the craft with the aim of some street photography being to create images at a decisive or poignant moment.source

Street photography can be a really great way to tell unscripted stories. It isn't about capturing beautiful landscapes or city scapes, it is about story telling. I am looking forward to seeing the stories that you all are able to tell with you cameras.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. If you do make a separate post, be sure to use the #photography and #creativecoin tags.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.

Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!
