signal photography



Created in collaboration with Dronestagram, the world leading drone photography website, and Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, a highly renowned photography editor, Dronescapes is the first book to bring together 250 of the very best photographs taken by quadcopters around the globe. Readers will see the planet from entirely new vantage points, whether it’s a bird’s-eye view of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, a photograph taken inches away from an eagle in midflight, or a vertiginous shot taken above Mexico’s Tamul Waterfalls. There are extended commentaries on how individual images were created and a separate, concise guide containing technical advice on how to use a drone and select the right model. An introduction also discusses how the arrival of drone photography signals a major shift in the history of aerial photography. 

attention ppl who like art!

i’m a young POC writer and artist, and i’m currently working on a weekly (or every 2 weeks) subscription newsletter email thing that will include poetry, music, book recs, podcasts, photography and more!

i’ve currently just been working on the first email and the design and all that jazz…but eventually you’ll be able to send in your own pictures or poetry and things for others to see!

if you’re interested in niche club news (a working title…) then you could like..drop your email in my ask box or in reply to this post and over the next week or two you’ll receive the tester email, and you could tell me if you like it or if you think i should change it up!

if not…simply reblogging this could be very helpful to get it out into the world…this is geared towards younger artists and poc (though anyone from the ages of 13-25 can join in!) and i’m very excited about it. please help out your young poc artists dudes!

Could y'all do me a favor? 🙏🏻

So as some of y'all know, I might get to intern at a book publisher this summer. I interviewed with them on Friday and they said they were interested in me maybe running their social media accounts and being their photographer in addition to me helping them out with editing.

They asked for my social media handles, and they’re particularly interested in my photography Instagram that I just recently started, @shannonbosticphotography.

But here’s the thing: I only have 19 followers on that account ☹️ it would look really good if I had somewhat of a following on that account, especially if they’re looking at me as a photographer.

I really really really want this internship and IT WOULD HELP ME OUT SO MUCH IF YALL FOLLOWED THAT INSTA ACCOUNT 😭💕

Thank you guys!! I LOVE YALL.

if you are 18+ and a uk citizen, PLEASE go out and vote today if you have not already. it’s not too late - polling stations close at ten pm so you still have three hours. you DO NOT need your polling card or any form of ID, so challenge anyone who rejects you on this basis. youth turnout in the 2015 election was slated as being just 43%; in the eu referendum, it was less than 40%. theresa may is banking on youth voters not turning up because they literally have the power to swing this election the other way. your vote DOES count and could make all the difference. do not stand for her complacent and arrogant behaviour throughout this election campaign and do not allow your future to be decided by older generations.

at, you can find out who to vote in your constituency for the best shot at voting the tories out.

Our co-founder will be co-curating and participating in upcoming art show in Los Angeles and is looking for other artists/ creatives to be apart of DEFINE FEMME showcase.

DEFINE FEMME aims to open up a conversation between the artist and the viewer, exposing the tension of gender roles and displaying the nontraditional and underrepresented faces of femininity. By providing an unfiltered glance of all forms that identify as feminine, the artists represent subjects as their most raw and true self.

LOOKING FOR LGBTQ & P.O.C CREATIVES who will create thought provoking work that expresses their own thoughts, experiences, on femininity!!!! How do you identify/challenge the idea of feminity?

Contact @cocamag and email DEFINEFEMME@GMAIL.COM your submissions

#CameraDay: Signal Corps Cameramen 1917-1918

“American and French Photographic Staff” ca. 1917
Series: Photographs of American Military Activities, ca. 1918 - ca. 1981Record Group 111: Records of the Office of the Chief Signal Officer, 1860 - 1985

It’s #CameraDay!  This photo, from the Signal Corps series, shows a combined unit of American and French cameramen during World War I. The man on the left is a motion picture cameraman for the U.S. Marine Corps, and the man in front is a still photographer and U.S. Marine. 

For the past two years, the National Archives Motion Picture Preservation Lab has been digitizing a series of Army Signal Corps films as part of a larger project to commemorate the centennial of World War I. Meanwhile, technicians from the Still Pictures Branch and the Digitization Division have scanned tens of thousands of Signal Corps photographs from World War I. Along the way, they forwarded photos of the cameramen to Motion Picture Lab staff, knowing that we love to see records of the people who shot the motion picture films we work with every day.

These photos, along with the rest of the series American Unofficial Collection of World War I Photographs, 1917-1918, are available in the National Archives online catalog.
