100 Cameras — How to Improve Kids’ Lives Through Photography
Photo by Brooke Schwab

Photography is a solo sport. It’s just you and your camera out there!

You’ve asked yourself a million times how you can make a difference with your photo skills, and 100 cameras figured it out.

This non-profit gives cameras to kids in developing communities around the world. Which is so great!

The kids are then able to sell their own photos giving them educational resources, healthcare, and lifeline supplies. Even greater!

These new photogs also learn about empowerment — they first-hand experience their own talent and skill positively affecting their communities.

Remember the first time you felt you could make a difference? Suddenly you felt like you could do so much! One empowering experience is all it takes.

BTW! 100 Cameras is actually raising funds to launch 100 Cameras 2.0, which will let anyone start their own photo community. Helping kids with photography? Sounds like a no-brainer!

You are My Wild — Great Kid Photography That’ll Inspire Your Own At-Home Photos
Photo by Brooke Schwab

When you were a kid, having a camera in front of you was just a little less scary. You probably didn’t even notice it was there most of the time.

It’s that enviable carefree ‘tude kids have that makes taking portraits of them so much fun.

That’s just what You are My Wild is all about. 14 photographers document how they see their kids by submitting one remarkable portrait each week.

Meaghan Curry explains how it started:

Right after the new year, and in sort of a creative lull, we were brainstorming about starting a project to force ourselves to put down our phone cameras down and pick up our other cameras more regularly…

Ironically, Instagram is the common thread between us. It is where we found other people documenting their children in really loving, beautiful and respectful ways.

We hoped that some of these other IG photographers would be interested in using their higher quality cameras to “see” the same way that we were using our phone cameras.

And it seems to have worked! Check out their portraits, and may they inspire you to photograph your loved ones in a new light.

Get Glitchy with Your Phone’s Panorama Function

Glitching is the digital equivalent of throwing a roll of film into water and seeing what happens.

While you might not want to dip your phone in H2O, you can get experimental with your phone photos other ways.

And by other ways, we mean panorama glitching.

All you need is a sweep of the arm to get your panorama to stitch a scene in really strange and awesome ways.

(We used iOS 6′s built-in panorama, but you can try this with pretty much any auto-stitching pano app.)

1) Stitch totally different parts of a scene

  • Sweep your phone to capture one part
  • Stop, then quickly move your phone to another part of the scene
  • And sweep again

The result ends up looking like a diptic with sweet transitions that vary from wavy edges to smooth stitching or black edges.

2) Make a jagged composition of a single subject by jerking your hand as you shoot the pano. This makes for a choppy, mosaic-like image.

Try other experiments like twisting your phone as you shoot. More examples at the link below!

BONUS: Another trick to try is getting your model to show up multiple times.

Make Panorama Phoneography Experiments

p.s. Show us your panoramas! Post it to our Facebook wall, and tomorrow (4/9) we’ll pick 4 favorites to feature on our Facebook page.
