InstantDC Open Call – Labor Day Deadline Looms

Canopy by Ryan Maxwell

Canopy by Ryan Maxwell

The deadline for our InstantDC 2014 Open Call is nearly upon us. If you haven’t entered the contest yet, you’d better get cracking!

And in case you’re spinning your wheels on which of your images to submit, here’s one more example of an earlier InstantDC show winner to provide a spark, perhaps. Ryan Maxwell‘s crisp, abstract shot dances with geometric shapes and lines, while the unusual perspective adds intrigue, making you wonder which way is up.

Whatever your particular style or subject matter, whatever type of device or medium you use, as long as you’re based in the D.C. area, we want to see your best photographs! So be sure to submit your work before midnight on the night of September 1. Good luck to all!

Nothing's gonna stop us by Paul Sirajuddin

Nothing’s gonna stop us by Paul Sirajuddin

Thank you Paul Sirajuddin not only for giving us this entertaining image, but also for planting one of the most unspeakably insidious earworms ever in my brain. Nothing’s going to stop it now.

Rapture by Rob Homann

Rapture by Rob Hohmann

We’ve heard reports of the floating people in Maryland, but now we are finally seeing proof. Photographer Robb Hohmann caught that perfect point in the dive where the swimmer looks like they are going to drift off into space.

Remember to browse our selection of free photography classes we’re sponsoring in September through Knowledge Commons DC. Our first class opened for registration this morning — head over to Gravelly Point on Tuesday, September 2, at 6:30pm to take photos of the low-flying airplanes headed in and out of National Airport. Our talented teacher Chris Williams will give you lots of pointers. Classes fill up quickly, so register soon!
