December’s Monthly theme is ‘Christmas’

December 4, 2015 in Monthly Theme, Uncategorized

The theme for December 2015 is ‘Christmas’.

Firstly, let me apologise for kicking off this months’ theme a few days late, but it’s been worth the wait. I’ve chosen the seasonal theme of Christmas to get everyone in the festive mood. It’s a simple enough theme that everyone can find all around them so it will be interesting to see how differently we can interpret the atmosphere. Show us what Christmas means to you.

Merry Christmas, Peter

The theme of neighbours is open to your own interpretation . Not just the obvious neighbours in your street or the soap opra you may watch!

Use your imagination to seek out how neighbouring objects interact with each other and show us how you understand their connection.

The theme for August 2015 is ‘Shadows’

August”s monthly theme is a bit more challenging. However, it gives you the opportunity to think of the different ways shadows can be used in your photographs. You can use them to lead in to the main subject or take them on their own or show how they relate to the rest of the image. Can you think of a different kind of shadow other than the obvious one?
