October Assignment – Juxtaposition
Oct 4 @ 12:00 am – Oct 29 @ 11:45 pm

 

 

dark vs light                                                            large vs small                                                     rock vs water

 

Here is a topic that some of you may never heard of but it can be fun and will make us think a little.
Topic: Juxtaposition
What is it?  Two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.  Ideas of this can be
Fat vs skinny –eg: a large tree vs a skinny one
Past and present -eg: an old building next to a new one ,
Old vs new –eg: a film camera vs a flash card.
Big vs small –eg: a child’s hand holding their parents
Dark vs light colors– eg: a dark puppy with some light ones
Nature vs manmade – eg” flowers or trees next to a home or apartment
Circle vs rectangle or angle – a carpet with a pattern
Black vs white – self explanatory
Water vs rocks – Qualicum falls

These are just some ideas but let your imagination go and have fun with this.
Remember you can enter one color, one black and white and one digitally enhanced.  Try not to use the same photo for all three categories

October field trip
Oct 15 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

     Our field trips have had a good turnout the on the actual day with others going on their own time.  Prior to COVID a group of us planned for a fall kick off Scavenger hunt in Port Alberni.  We are going to go ahead with it as it is easy to social distance.
Below are the topics to try and find.    They are meant to be fun and as challenging as you would like to make them.  I will be bringing a list of the topics to  the meeting on October 7th for those that would like to have a hard copy

Our meeting place is in front of the Port House (boat shop)  4527 Morton St.  There is free parking at the back

Try and find as many of the topics below as you can

Colors

Movement

Doors and Windows

Shadows

Architecture – anything man made

Skyline

Reflections

Geometric Shapes

Leading Lines

You can enter 5 of your favorites into the field trip category on the website and if you want more then you have room for three more into your favorites.

Have fun, and hope to see you there.

November Assignment – Intentional Movement
Nov 1 @ 12:00 am – Nov 28 @ 9:00 pm

This month our assignment is INTENTIONAL MOVEMENT. I know that some of you may have tried it but for those who haven’t – Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) is a technique used to create a form of abstract art. Instead of using a tripod to keep the camera still, move the camera in a panning motion to create motion blur while the camera’s shutter is open.

You can submit 3 photos on the website-
1 color
1 black and white
1 digitally enhanced however you would like

Photos must be taken within the last three months (Sept 1 – Nov 28)
