15 Photo-Mommas To Follow on Flickr

2017-05-12T22:09:47Z

Mother’s Day is a time to honor the women that have helped make us who we are. In their honor, we’ve put together a gallery of photos taken by fifteen of our favorite mom photographers on Flickr.

The majority of the women featured in this list are completely self-taught photographers who decided they would learn to take high-quality pictures of their children while they were still little. That way they could have artistically beautiful memories to share throughout their children’s’ lives. These women from different countries and cultural backgrounds share a common desire: to preserve their children’s memories and the stories of their days together. Share this post with your mom or significant other to say ‘I Love You’ for Mother’s Day!

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FULL GALLERY

And be sure to follow these artistic mothers and support their beautiful work.

Up until now, many of Flickr’s members around the world have been limited to sharing their photographs and stories on Flickr via desktop, and only desktop. We’re excited to announce that the Flickr App is now available in dozens of new App stores across the globe, for both iOS and Android. Now, even more, photographers worldwide will be able to upload their photos on-the-go and put their 1000 GB of storage to use. Whether they’re using their tablet to document their travels to a new country or snapping photos with their phone in their hometown, sharing photographs with friends, family, and the Flickr community has never been easier. We’re thrilled to invite Flickr members in the regions listed below to enjoy the app experience. The most recent 4.3.0 release gives you the ability to add a photo to multiple groups, making it much faster and easier to get more eyeballs on your photos. All you have to do is select the groups you’d like to add the photo to, and as long as it fits the groups’ posting rules/limits, it will be added to all of them. With this release members also gain the ability to add tags to others’ photos, granted that person’s settings allow it.              Go here to download the Flickr iOS App or Flickr Android App. The next release will introduce a whole new dimension to the mobile experience for Groups! Keep an eye out for the 4.4.0 update! :)   New Countries Where Flickr for iOS Is Available*: Albania Algeria Angola Anguilla Antigua and Barbuda Armenia Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Barbados Belarus Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia Botswana Brunei Darussalam Burkina Faso Cambodia Cape Verde Cayman Islands Chad Congo, Republic of Cyprus Dominica Fiji Cambia Ghana Grenada Guinea-Bissau Guyana Kazakhstan Kenya Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic (aka Laos) Liberia Macau Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Madagascar Malawi Mali Mauritania Micronesia, Federated States of Moldova, Republic of Mongolia Montserrat Mozambique Namibia Nepal Niger Nigeria Oman Pakistan Palau Papua New Guinea Saint Lucia São Tomé and Príncipe Senegal Seychelles Sierra Leone Solomon Islands St. Kitts and Nevis St. Vincent and The Grenadines Suriname Swaziland Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Trinidad and Tobago Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Uganda Uzbekistan Virgin Islands, British Yemen Zimbabwe New Countries Where Flickr for Android Is Available*: Albania Algeria Angola Aruba Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Belarus Belize Benin Bolivia Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Burkina Faso Cambodia Cameroon Cape Verde Côte d’Ivoire Fiji Gabon Ghana Guinea-Bissau Haiti Iceland Kyrgyzstan Lao People’s Democratic Republic (aka Laos) Mali Morocco Mozambique Myanmar (Burma) Namibia Nepal Netherlands Antilles Niger Nigeria Oman Papua New Guinea Rwanda Senegal Tajikistan Tanzania, United Republic of Thailand Togo Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkmenistan Uganda Uzbekistan Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe * Languages Supported: English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese [...]

April 22nd is a day to demonstrate support for environmental protection across the world! On this day, billions of people participate in environmental education activities and march to demand responsible practices from business and governments. The goal for this year is to start a global campaign to achieve climate and environmental literacy by Earth Day 2020.

Flickr is home to many thousands of nature photographers who dedicate their efforts to raise awareness about the value of our wildlife and the global challenges affecting our environment: degradation of ecosystems, mass extinction of species, pollution of air, water and soil, and many, many other issues. In their honor, and in hopes of encouraging others to become aware of the fragility of our planet, we’ve put together a gallery with some of our favorite nature images from the Flickr community. Click here to see the full showcase and to add your photos and comments. Let’s not take this planet for granted!

Making Flickr Fully Responsive

2017-04-18T20:47:10Z

The mobile web has […]After nine years of diligent service, it’s time for us to bid m.flickr.com adieu and say hello to the mobile-ready www.flickr.com! The mobile web has come a long way since we first introduced m.flickr.com, and nowadays there are better ways to build web pages for mobile devices. In fact, the pages we’ve redesigned in the last few years have been mobile-ready from day one. Streamlining the existing mobile pages lets us improve and enhance our mobile web experience at a much quicker pace.   With this update, when you visit Flickr on a mobile device, you will now see all the pages you would have accessed through the pared down m.flickr.com as a fully responsive experience. Instead of small thumbnails and text-heavy pages, you’ll get a much nicer layout scaled to fit your device. All of your old bookmarks should work normally, as should links around the web. Anything anyone shared with you over time will remain intact and function as intended. We hope you’ll like the new mobile experience and we invite you to share your feedback with us in the Help Forum. [...]



Shopping in Surrealism

2017-04-18T19:05:12Z

Sketching and shooting are her way to escape from the constrictions of ordinary life. “I do everything myself. That’s why I struggled for two months when my [camera] remote broke. Manual self-timer shooting is very hard,” said Katrina, who admitted this 365 photo challenge has been an “eye-opening, self-learning process.” By pushing herself to produce quality work, Katrina has learned a lot about the technical side of photography. She uses Photoshop to turn her artistic vision of a particular theme into a surrealist scene that often contains some hand-crafted elements too, like drawings and origami figures. “I like looking at something and imagining what would make it pop out from the ordinary.” Katrina says the most significant image she has created so far is Before you turn to stardust [209/365]. “I dedicated this picture to one of my closest friends, who passed away that day. I shot this right after I received the news, and was in shock the whole day. I think this shot solidifies my love with surrealism. It’s like being able to do the things that you want to do in a parallel universe.” Less than a hundred days away from completing her project, Katrina doesn’t see her image number 365 as the end of her Flickr adventure. She loves the support she’s gotten from the community. “I just want to turn my ideas into something tangible and feel alive in the process.” Explore more of Katrina’s work on her Flickr Photostream and let her know which of her photos is your favorite with a comment.
