February 2019 – Movie Title – Manipulation IS Allowed

It is time to get creative. The photograph must clearly depict the movie title so that it can be recognisable by the audience even if they don’t know the title. It is advisable not to use foreign movies that might not be familiar to a large part of the audience.

March 2019 – MONO PRINT – Manipulation IS Allowed

Monochrome is a black and white image. A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey.

A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able

to stand in the black and white category. A black and white work modified by a partial toning

or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category. This image must be submitted in print form.

May 2019 – MULTIPLICITY – Manipulation IS Allowed

Multiplicity is a photography technique in which the same person is photographed from different angles and directions and then the bunch of photographs are digitally re-mastered in Photoshop showing clones of the person/animal doing different things all in one photo. The post processing might be a bit challenging but this is a lot of fun to do.

July 2019 – TECHNOLOGY IN MONOCHROME – Manipulation IS Allowed

Monochrome is a black and white image. A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey.

A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able

August 2019 – BLACK AND WHITE IN COLOUR - Manipulation NOT Allowed

Images must be shot in colour, but subjects will be in black and white. Examples would be a colour image of a zebra or the painted pedestrian crossing on a tar road. Shoot your image in colour but do not convert it to monochrome. The purpose is to make you develop the skills required to capture a range of tones from black through to white without blocking the shadows or blowing out the highlights.
