Each month club members are encouraged to produce images based upon a specific photo assignment or Theme. The images are shared on flickr® where they can be seen and commented upon by other members. The public can view the Monthly Photo Theme images but non-members cannot post images.
The Monthly Photo Themes purpose is to get club members to take new pictures, not to find images that satisfy the assignment in existing photo files. So get up, get out there, and shoot away.
The Monthly Photo Themes for 2018 are:
- January – Creative Manipulations
- February – Body Parts
- March – Bridges
- April – Wheels
- May – Plants
- June – Macro
- July – Boats
- August – Animals
- September – Road Signs/Billboards
- October – Architecture
- November – Shadows
- December – Black and White
You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper. – William Albert Allard
Creative Manipulations – January’s ThemeThis month we are asking you to show your creative side. Use your favorite image processing software and techniques to “manipulate” an image. You can use filters, compositing, or any other method to transform an image to convey what you want, rather than what the original image may have shown. This is your chance to create a work of art.
Upload up to five of your images to the club’s Monthly Photo Theme flickr® group.
