Ukuleleography = Ukulele + iPhonePhotography

I am on the road and have been shooting the ukulele photos with my iPhone. The previous posts of Oliva are all iPhone shots — and a little larger than usual because I haven’t resized them for the blog.

This morning’s newspaper reading of USA Today, led me to discover Pixels at an Exhibition: The Art of the iPhone where there are some links to even more sites of iPhone photographs.

I love photography. I love my iPhone. I love the ukulele. So as of 3:03 p.m. on May 29, 2010, I’ll invent the term Ukuleleography. And that’s what you’ll see from time to time on this blog – Ukuleleography. Photos of the ukulele taken with the iPhone.

In an effort to promote ukuleleography — photos taken with your iPhone of your ukulele on your travels — I will give away a custom-built soprano cigarbox ukulele to the best ukuleleography taken and submitted to “Ukulele Perspective” this summer.

I will post the criteria for the Ukuleleography contest shortly.

    Does it have to be taken with an iPhone only? Or will you include other cellphone-camera users?

      I think likely iPhone only. That way the format, resolution, and size is consistent across entries and will be easier to post while on the road.

    I feel the same way about my iPhone. I just got the over two-thousand pictures off my phone. A lot of the pictures are of ukuleles. Most are of my family. Every once in a while I’ll take a shot thats a gem.

    All the best,
