Monday, April 6, 6:30pm : Members-Only Competition – “Minimalism” (Judging begins at 7pm) Here we are creating images whose composition involves extreme simplicity. They emphasize “spareness and focus solely on the smallest number of objects in the composition process.” These images often have a good deal of “negative space.” In short, keep ‘em simple!

Monday, September 14, 6:30pm : Members-Only Competition – “Portrait” (Judging begins at 7pm) For this competition we are focusing on portraits of people (i.e. human beings ;-). A portrait is a photo of a person or group of people that captures the personality of the subject by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses. These are posed pictures, not candid. Regarding lighting, how you use it and craft it are key in the learning process. For these pictures we ask that you make the decisions about lighting; natural light, reflectors, flash, etc. You may use someone else’s equipment as long as you set it the way you want, you adjust it to achieve the picture you want.

Look for things that are not what you expect, not ordinary or usual. We are looking for images with a subject that may be strange, peculiar, funny or even bizarre.
