August Challenge – Moonshots and Urban vs Rural
The themes for our August meeting are “Moonshots” and “Urban vs. Rural”. Urban vs. Rural would be a pair of images related to each other in some way. One of the two ways to present your work is by combining an urban-themed image with a rural one in a diptych. The other way is to present the works serially, i.e. an urban image followed by a related rural image, or vice versa. If Urban vs. Rural, to try to keep this part of the meeting from going into overtime, one can present up to five diptychs — the same as the number of individual images in a normal challenge — or, for fairness, six individual images in three sets of two related ones. So make up to five pictures for Moonshots and diptychs (or up to six otherwise) for Urban vs. Rural (1400 pixels long edge) and send them to Tim Watson (Tim@photowatson.com) no later than Monday, August 12th. Please note which one you would like to be discussed further (if any). Also, in your file names, it would be helpful to be descriptive and to insert your name since it might work better with our website.
The Purpose of Our Photography Themes: I believe Corey stated this well, “I think the challenges are most valuable when they challenge us to learn something new, or break out of a rut, or go someplace we wouldn’t ordinarily go, or generally do something to grow as artists and photographers.”
Prints: Try to print and bring to the meeting at least one of your photos you are submitting for the Member Photography Discussion. A number of members did do this at our last few meetings, which provides for some interesting thoughts.
