Definitions for monthly competitions in 2019

by on Dec.30, 2018, under Competitions

February – My Home Environment

An image which tells the viewer something about the club members home – inside or outside.

March – Perspective

All entries in monochrome.

An image in which linear perspective is a key element. The image may be taken from a different angle or viewpoint that would normally be expected from a photographer. Examples of perspective can be overhead, low to the ground, acute angles or closer than normally seen.

April – Landscape or Seascapes

A landscape is a photograph of natural scenery with land and sky based elements displayed in a pictorial fashion.  It may include evidence of man, people, animals, even part of the sea provided that none of these additional elements dominate the photograph.  A seascape is a photograph of natural coastal scenery, a wave study, or a picture of the open sea, provided always that the sea is the centre of interest of the photograph.  People, boats and man-made structures may be present as incidental to the photograph.

May – Portrait

A photograph of a person or persons that may range from a head study to full body length.  This includes candid photographs and formal portraits.

June – Movement

An image that incorporates or expresses movement. The maker can use subject movement or even implied movement where picture elements suggest directional motion.

July – Animals

A picture of living animals, birds or insects either confined or in their natural environment. Studio style images of animals are acceptable.

August – Travel

A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Images from events or activities arranged specifically for photography, or of subjects directed or hired for photography are not appropriate. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment. Techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable adjustments are removal of dust or digital noise, restoration of the appearance of the original scene, and complete conversion to greyscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.

September – Minimalism

An image that is simple without complicated subjects and backgrounds and has only one or two elements in the scene. The KISS principle applies to images taken for this category.

October – Food

An image of food taken in any environment such as a picnic, BBQ, your kitchen, a restaurant or any other place where food is prepared and/or eaten is acceptable. The image may contain people, animals or man-made objects such as a table and cutlery etc. but, the food must remain the dominant subject in the image for e.g. cutlery on a plate full of food is acceptable whereas an empty plate with cutlery is not.

November – High key/low key

All entries except creative must be monochrome.

An image which is predominantly bright with darker subject elements (high key) or predominantly dark with brighter subject elements (low key).

A Taste of Activities for 2019

by on Dec.20, 2018, under Competitions, General, Workshops

The committee has been busy planning activities for next year and we have been guided in this by the responses from the survey in terms of set subjects and workshops. A number of these are now confirmed and our first few competition nights will be as follows:

Month Judge Set subject
February Rob Sloane My home environment
March Jen Fawkes Perspective (monochrome month)
April Tom Putt Land/Seascapes
May Christopher Ian Portrait (also creative section)

So that you can prepare, other possible set subjects are travel, animals, movement, minimalism, food and low key/hi key. Once judges are organised these will be confirmed. The “creative months” will be May/July/September/November, so there is plenty of time to get creative before they are due in!

Workshops currently being organised are printing, black and white photography, low key/high key lighting (Kayell), travel photography, camera function and maintenance, macro photography, astro-photography and more.

We are also well on the way to securing Mark Galer who will be doing a half day workshop on LightRoom where we are hoping to cover some of the more advanced features. The first weekend in March is the likely date for this event and there will be a small charge which will be subsidised somewhat by the club. An advanced photoshop workshop is also being planned so watch this space.
