Speaker: Darron Mathews - 'A Close Encounter with Nature'

25th JANUARY

Club Competition No.3

Subject: People (dpi) and Open Mono (prints)

People we might expect to see some street photography where people are either central to the story, or are 'elements' that punctuate the urban landscape.  There may be performers, or workers, or more conventional portraits.

Mono is often overlooked - yet by portraying your subject in varying monochromatic tones, we can emphasise contrasting features to create prints with impact: landscapes, portraits, wildlife and much more.

Judge:  A welcome return to Peter Gennard
