Our next photo “competition” will be Tuesday Jan 27th (to be rescheduled due to winter storm) – the challenge category is “Abstraction“. We also have an “Open” category where there are no constraints on subject matter. In order to try something a little different, this event will NOT be scored by judges, but will be presented to the audience for open critique and feedback. The idea is to provide an evening that isn’t focused on the winning scores, but is instead an opportunity for all club members to engage in discussing photographic technique and composition strategies. For the “Abstraction” category, we encouraging members to explore images that focus on shapes, color, and textures – there is a good definition of the style on this website and some excellent examples of abstract photographs here.  We will still have the usual competition rules of one image per category to be emailed by Saturday Jan 24 11PM – see calendar entry for details.

Our thanks to Deb Cram from the Seacoast Media Group who presented an engaging showcase of her photographs and videos at our last meeting. We had a lively discussion on photojournalism techniques and challenges.
