Walking Thoughtfully Through Twilight with Tina Sosna

2017-06-21T17:13:44Z

23-year-old photographer Tina Sosna has an extraordinary eye for beauty. She takes soft, atmospheric portraits that celebrate the charm in everyday life. Originally from Thuringia, in central Germany, Tina lives in the university city of Jena with her boyfriend and her red-furred cat, Willow.Tina is also a stationery maker who runs a little online shop where she sells envelopes, letter sets, cards and other writing materials she designs. Completely self-taught, Tina learned photography through trial and error, especially by looking uniquely at her surroundings and their impact on her. She says self-portraits are the best way to understand all parts of the process that go into creating a photograph. “I started taking pictures about eight years ago. At this time I was 15 and completely overwhelmed by all my feelings and the fact that I felt pretty different from all the people around me. I had so much creativity that I needed to use for something,” she explained. “I first started to write a lot of stories and then started taking pictures with a simple, compact camera. In photography, I found the perfect way to express myself, my emotions and feelings in the best way.” Although she initially studied Art History and Movie Science at University, Tina’s real passion has always been photography, specifically analog. “Shooting film will always be the best way to take a picture. It’s where it all began and where the magic lies.” Only film can provide the texture, unique colors, and look she likes. Tina enjoys film photography because it gets her involved in a more thoughtful process that makes every single image count. “I like to have something in this fast living world to rely on that makes me value every moment even more.” Light and natural elements are her biggest sources of inspiration. Tina’s work is full of soft light, intimate moments and very, very few city elements. For her life finds quiet and simple moments that overlap with the leaves, water, or trees that connect her to her sense of self. Her life is all about being casually interlaced with the forests, meadows, lakes, and beaches that surround her town… and of course, people and beautiful details find a place there. “Just simple things like the golden hour, a walk, or special places I explore, but also music, books, and films make me see the world with special eyes and make me sensitive to the beauty of life.” Tina says that golden hour light — right after sunrise or just before sunset — produces the best results with lifestyle film photography, particularly when shooting elements of nature, but she says she can work in any conditions. “I think the right light is everywhere. You just have to remind yourself to walk thoughtful and with open eyes through the world.” She describes her style as “delicate, warm, soft and sometimes magical.” If one had to imagine a perfect world to live in, it would probably be as the world in her photographs: pure, tranquil, and beautiful. “I want to make people aware of the beauty you can find even in a simple life. Sometimes there is a story or message behind my photos, but mostly I want to take the viewers on an emotional journey with me.” As a long time Flickr member, Tina has found many other wonderful talents like her on the site: Marcus, Anna Nycz, Li Hui and Zarianka are a few of her favorites. Be sure to explore Tina’s Flickr photostream for more inspiring work. [...]

Fathers of Flickr – A Touching Gallery of Fatherhood

2017-06-19T22:52:21Z

Today’s a day for all the dads out there. We’ve put together a gallery of our favorite fathers on Flickr and the photography that showcases what they’ve done for their families. Most of the men in this list are self-taught or have other passions for their photography, but have found a special place in their Flickr Photostream for their family and their children.(image)

Today’s a day for all the dads out there. We’ve put together a gallery of our favorite fathers on Flickr and the photography that showcases what they’ve done for their families. Most of the men in this list are self-taught or have other passions for their photography, but have found a special place in their Flickr Photostream for their family and their children.

VIEW THE FULL FATHER’S DAY GALLERY HERE

These men represent all of the strength and tenderness needed to father, and grandfather. They’re from different countries and cultural backgrounds. They represent strength, compassion, and preserve moments in unique ways for their families.

While it’s easy to find photographers that are dads, finding a dad photographer or family photographer is more nuanced. Share this Gallery with your father or hubby to say ‘I Love You’ for Father’s Day!

Add your favorite memory + Father’s Day photo in the comment section below the Gallery using the format [Flickr Link].

Share Your Best Work With The New Flickr About Page

2017-06-06T22:02:33Z

Today, we’re announcing a completely redesigned Flickr Profile page experience on desktop called About. Your About page introduces new design and functionality, and brings you even more ways to customize how you present yourself and your photography to the world. With this update, we’ve simplified navigation and made the About tab much more visible on the Flickr site.Today, we’re announcing a completely redesigned Flickr Profile page experience on desktop called About. Your About page introduces new design and functionality, and brings you even more ways to customize how you present yourself and your photography to the world. With this update, we’ve simplified navigation and made the About tab much more visible on the Flickr site. The new About page experience comes with several new features. Showcase Section One of the most requested features from our Flickr community was a way to more prominently showcase a curated selection of your photography to people viewing your account. With our new Showcase section, you can select up to 25 photos to display in any order you like. You can give the section a title and you can edit it subsequently. This page can be a portfolio of your best work, or it can be a space that you update regularly with a theme or topic that interests you. Most Popular Photos You can now also publicly display your most popular photos, a feature that was previously only visible to you. Sort the selection of images by Most Faved, Most Commented, Most Viewed, and Most Interesting (based on a Flickr engagement algorithm). If you don’t want the world to see this section, you can set it to be visible only to you. New Ways to Edit Your Bio, Add Links, and More We’ve also added a section to update your bio directly on the page, and the ability to link out to other sites where you may feature your work, including Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and more. Finally, the Photos of You and Testimonials sections that were in the previous Profile page experience have been refreshed on your About page. We’re excited about these additional features and we hope you agree that they give you more ways to showcase your best work on Flickr. We’re starting to roll out this update to some Flickr members today, and it will be available for everyone over the coming week. Please share any feedback you might have on the new About page here. You can also read a detailed description of the changes in the Help Forum. Thanks, Team Flickr [...]

1953: Elizabeth II crowned Queen of England

2017-06-02T20:09:04Z

On this day in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in a ceremony watched by millions around the world in the first televised coronation of a monarch. She was just 25 years old.On this day in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in a ceremony watched by millions around the world in the first televised coronation of a monarch. She was just 25 years old when she officially became Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon (now the nation of Sri Lanka). Her coronation took place in Westminster Abbey, London. Today, Elizabeth II is the head of state of sixteen independent countries, known as Commonwealth realms. At 91 years old, she’s also Britain’s longest-serving monarch. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born on April 21, 1926, the daughter of George VI and the then Duchess of York, Elizabeth. During her reign, she’s marked several major milestones. In 2012, she became the second British monarch to reach her Diamond Jubilee, after her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. On February 2017, Queen Elizabeth became the first British monarch to mark her Sapphire Anniversary, and even though her public appearances have lessened with the years, Her Majesty is reportedly the most admired person in the United Kingdom. On April 2009, Queen Elizabeth met Michelle Obama at Buckingham Palace. They were photographed with their arms around one other, a highly unusual gesture, as touching the Queen is frequently discouraged. During her reign, she’s received twelve different British Prime Ministers, had encounters with seven different Popes, and met every US President with the exceptions of Lyndon B. Johnson and newly elected President Donald Trump. We encourage you to browse through The Flickr Commons, and visit the State Library of Queensland, to discover more historic photos of Elizabeth II.
