This month we will have the following competition categories: Assigned Theme - Technology, Open and Black and White.
Competition entry is limited to the PAID members. The meeting is open to all members, paid and online for viewing and discussion.
Assigned Theme: Technology
Even though technology may generally refer to something that is “high-tech”, it can be defined as “tools one has to do a job”.
This month Jim Caldwell will join us as a guest and lead the critique and judge the prints. Jim started shooting editorially in college and immediately following graduation he went to work for Rice University. A few years later, Jim went out on his own as a freelancer, picking up editorial clients like Time, Newsweek, and Texas Monthly. He has been asked why he likes editorial work so much to which he responds: “For me it’s like going on the world’s greatest field trip, I get to see what makes business tick; photography in advertising is a collaborative creative process that I find very stimulating". Versatility and vision are the keys to Jim’s photography. Creating images that tell the stories of businesses to the world is a unique gift that he brings to life. www.jimcaldwellpro.com.
Maximum number of prints that can be entered is 5, with a maximum number in any one category of 2.
The entries can be split between any of the three categories as long as there are no more than 2 entries in any one category.
We must have 5 or more Black and White images entered in order to have a complete category. Otherwise, the images, at the discretion of the photographer can be moved to the Open category or reserved for future competitions.
We hope to see all members, those interested in learning about the club and those wishing to share their vision of photography and image making, come join us.
