Club Competition Dec 8

The December 2015 Bi-Monthly Competition is Portrait Photography. Submissions to this competition shall include straightforward Portraits that are captured of an individual or a group of two or more people of any age in a studio or in an outdoor setting where the photographer has control over lighting, posing, situation, wardrobe, and/or setting. Portrait lighting is essential in this category, be it natural or artificial. Any natural or studio background is acceptable. The primary focus should be the person or persons. Props and/or animals should not be a distraction from the primary focus. NO added props or elements are acceptable after the initial image is captured.
Example Subjects:

  1. Children/Family.
  2. High School/Senior/Individual.
  3. Glamour/Fine Art Portraits
  4. Sports/Team Portraits.

Natural lighting is included. Editing should be limited to varying contrast, dodging and burning, i.e. standard darkroom techniques. Added elements such as texturing and the use of techniques considered as creative development are not allowed.
