12MC – March Subjects

Apologies for the delay in putting these onto the website but please find below your 12 Month Challenge subjects for March

  • Portrait – Candid. Take a portrait of someone without them knowing, catch them in the act or enjoying a quiet reflective moment. Either way you’re looking for a natural and relaxed image.
  • Landscape – Urbanscape. While most landscapes are open spaces of natural beauty there are plenty of opportunities within the Urban environment. For this image capture the beauty of the urban/city landscape.
  • Creative – Water. Drips, drops, splashes, lakes, rivers, oceans or rain whatever floats your boat. Show us what you can do with the elixir of life.
  • Technical – Backlit. Shooting against the sun can be tricky. Use this challenge to create a backlit image which avoids throwing your subject into full silhouette. You may find a reflector a handy tool for this…

12 Month Challenge Subjects – February

Subjects for February’s 12 Month Challenge are as follows:

Portrait – Movement. Most portraits are stationary so for this challenge experiment with adding movement into your shot. Dancing, twirling or even a flip of the hair are all good ideas…
Landscape – Panorama. This is a great opportunity to explore panoramic stitching to create a wide and sweeping landscape. Don’t panic if you don’t have the software though. Shoot wide then try a letterbox crop to create the same look.
Creative – Candy. Something sweet left over from Christmas? This is a great excuse to try out your Macro lens.
Technical – Feeling Flash? Create an image that shows the power of flash…

12 Month Challenge Subjects – January

Morning All,

I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year.
The subjects for January have been on the Facebook Page for a couple of days but in case you’ve missed them they are as follows:
  • Portrait – Family. Whether it’s the family you were born with or the family you choose show the world what Family means to you.
  • Landscape – Up Close. Most landscapes are wide open vistas of natural beauty. Try an alternative and zoom in close to isolate sections of the scene instead.
  • Creative – Texture. A photograph is a 2 dimensional image however if you shoot it right an image can display a texture your mind will be able to feel.
  • Technical – Bokeh. A shallow depth of field is often used to isolate a specific part of an image. Bring added focus to your subject by using a shallow depth of field.
Decembers images are due in by 5th January.
