Subject Definition:

Open: The subject content is unrestricted and may include creative images, with all forms of manipulation permitted

After Dark: A Night-time Image, i.e. post sunset, with or without Flash. It can be ‘Long Exposure’, Light-Painting, Astro, Star Trails etc.

Black & White: Not sepia, colour tinted or any with any cast. The subject is unrestricted.

Wood: Creativity showing the features of Wood, Grain, Texture, etc.; the image must show wood as the main feature. It can be a tree, but again, showing the feature of the structure (bark) rather than the entire tree. i.e. Not a whole woodland.

Human Portrait: It can be any setting, but the person is the main subject of the image.
Hopefully, we will get some ideas from our planned workshop with Carl Reeve on 5th September.
