Coming tomorrow: The 50th edition of “The Photograph Explained”

We are very proud to announce that tomorrow we will be publishing our 50th edition of “The Photograph Explained”, a series of posts that has been running since September, 2013.

It seemed worthy to post up a little announcement and to show off all the previous editions so our readers can see the diversity of photographs submitted by an incredibly talented group of photographers.

Thanks must go to David Tatnall who has worked extremely hard over the years to seek out and pester photographers to provide the images and text that you’ve enjoyed reading. And, of course, massive thanks must also go out to the photographers who have provided these beautiful images and explaining the thoughts and processes they’ve gone through to make these photographs.

We’ll continue to run the series, as The Photograph Explained is one of the more popular posts on the site, although perhaps not quite as regularly as we have been doing! Now we’re up to edition 50, David will enjoy the break, I’m sure!

We would love to know what your favourite image is, and why, and what images stood out to you! Leave a comment below, we’ll look forward to reading your thoughts!

In other news, the site is currently being refreshed with a new look and that should come to life in the next couple of weeks.

But in the meantime, leave comments below, share these images on the usual social networks! I think everyone who has provided an image should be very proud of what you’ve created and the more people that see your work, the better!
