HOW DO I SUBMIT? Submissions’ can be sent to ktracy32@hotmail.com there is no limitation on submissions. Although an issue might follow a particular theme. Please include ALL CREDITS when submitting. Model, MUA, SFX, etc..Low resolution images are ok for review, there's no maximum amount of images but we need 5 to 10 minimum. If your images are selected for publication we will email you requesting high resolution images (at least 300 dpi sized to 8.5”x 11”) you want to submit large images, especially for print. A larger size image will look better in a print publication. You will be asked if you have obtained a Model Release, but will not be required to include it with your submission. If an image does not have a model release to back up an image then future work with the artist will concluded.

Issue two is the "art" issue. The concept is simple. So often a photographers first foray into shooting is to capture the model, face to camera and eyes connected. It's a personal shot between you and the model. You captured her essence. Now,......pan back, take in the whole room, have her turn her head and look off to her right. Capture her in the whole room. This is making the model, the whole shot something more. The whole image becomes the focal point and not just a model. Widen your view. Make the subject matter all that is around the model and not just her. Edit it with alternative methods. Distort it, change it. This is an example.

This is the art issue. Be it, photographic art, fine art, digital art, or basic art. This is where we take an image and make it art. The April issue, which is number two. Is based around the whole image, the essence of art to an image. No model looking at the camera, no glamour, no headshots, or fashion. This is your taking a model and making her into part of the scene. It's you taking a selfie and contorting it until it's a version of you. It's your using a model as a canvas, using body paint, to create something more. Use your imagination.

 

We're looking for any type of process. General edits, composites, HDR, SmartPhone Creations, Digital Manipulations, Body Painting, etc. The list could go on and on. The main thing to remember is that this is not about you or the model, it's about the whole image. It's about what you do with your subject, the surrounding they are in, the room, the props, the setting, the body, the canvas. It's the whole image!!! I cannot say this enough. Go outside your comfort zone. Convert your model to more then just a face and body, mold her and her environment into something more. This concept can be any configuration. Example: Shoot an impersonal nude in a landscape or maybe a nude body laying in a pile of flowers. The image isn't so much about the nude model as it is the environment surrounding the body.

Please have fun with this. If the challenge is not something you have fun with and enjoy, then it's not worth pursuing.
