Film Title Winners


While we are all in “Lockdown” our scope for outdoor photography is limited but some people are managing to get some good images during their exercise, Tom has posted some great Treecreeper images from his walks up to the moor. The insects in my garden are getting more photographic attention than they normally would! Others are indulging in indoor photography with some macro and still life work appearing on various Facebook groups I belong to. Now is also a good time to go back through your archive and rework images with a new perspective or with new techniques.

The Altered Images Group are meeting every week on a Thursday morning via Zoom and the critique group are well into the swing of their April images. Paul and John W did a Zoom tutorial on Lightroom yesterday which was well received. Our next tutorial will be “Monochrome” if we can get some people to present – I can do a bit but there are people within the club that can contribute far more than I can!

April 15th is the submission date for our “Street Photography” competition (now a digital competition not print). I feel that for many people Monochrome is very much a “print thing” so the competition is open to colour images (although I would ask that you use mono if possible). I Googled “Street Photography” and got the following:

Wikipedia defines street photography as “photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents.”

Typically, street photography is about candidly capturing life in public areas. And contrary to its name, street photography does not have to be done on the streets. You can do street photography anywhere.

And given the circumstances I have added “even through your window”.
