Hillcrest Camera Club - Photo Sharing - Tuesday 17 June 2014

Posted by Hillcrest Camera Club on Monday, June 16, 2014 Under: Photo Sharing

Hi everyone

We are sending this notice out early, so that you have ample time shoot for the set subject, Composition. See below for info on what to shoot. Happy shooting this weekend! 

1. Set Subject - Composition - making use of the Golden Rule, Rule of Thirds, Converging Lines and Lead In Lines.

Create an image that makes strong use of the composition rules. Combine more than one together, or shoot using just one rule. The effect should be that the image is strong, have appeal to the viewer and make the viewer want to keep looking. Shoot anything from landscapes to macro, the subject is up to you. However, you must demonstrate good composition, and use of the rules.
