Juxt Storyteller Contest
Last week we published two articles that have inspired us to reach out to the community. We Are Juxt is built on the stories of Juxters and the artists we interview but now we want to see what you have to say. We want to see what you care about, what makes you angry, or what a day looks like in your shoes. We are challenging you to create a photographic essay with at least 5 photos
Click the link in my profile to get the skinny on the contest and to find out about what our AMAZING partners have offered to donate to the top storytellers. You won’t want to miss what Olloclip, FlyGrip, Hatchcraft, and pic pak have to offer.
Be a Juxt storyteller and share your story with us.
One Screen Schoolhouse: The Photographic Essay
Recently I challenged myself to shoot with a thematic story in mind. I love the crumbling small towns of Kentucky so I developed a theme around that subject. A photographic essay is one of the hardest artistic pursuits I’ve put my hand to. These essays intend to tell a story through photographs. Each should tell its own story and contribute to the whole.
Read the full tutorial where @annacox explores the subject of the photographic essay.
If you would like to challenge yourself also and try a photographic essay tag your first image of the essay with #juxt_photoessay_start and then your own personal essay tag so we can find the rest of the images easily.

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries, rendering death and forever with each breathing

One Screen Schoolhouse: elements of design
Today we will be covering contrast, curves, and pattern in texture photography. Don’t let the title “texture photography” scare you, it’s more about being aware of what your subject has to offer.
Read the full tutorial and see highlights from the last tutorial on wearejuxt.com with @annacox

AMPt Projects: MONDAY IG FEATURE with @journeyofnow
Today I would like to introduce you to @nickjamesadams who is from South West Wales. I’m such a fan of landscapes and Nick is a wonderful case of capturing his part of world through his phone.
When I try to sum up his style, it is fitting to say high fidelity. His work is so beautiful and vivid, I’m always surprised on what the iPhone can put out. When you look at his work, it really feels that you are in the shot. There is so much beautiful detail in his stream and each one of his shots are very well composed.
Trying to capture the beauty of landscape can be tricky when trying to fit the image it into a square format that will be mostly viewed on the phone.. You also don’t have a wide dynamic range, so with those challenges Nick is able past those limitations and illicit an emotion while capturing the essence of his surroundings.
While Nick mostly focuses on landscapes I also particularly like how he captures cows. It’s almost like they are portraits or model shots.
Nick’s feed will now be featured in a couple of places. His photos will have a showcase on AMPt feed, website, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.One more place that you will be added is on my blog journeyofnow.jux.com
