Photo Challenge - The Scavenger Hunt

This week we held our annual challenge night, where members select 5 topics from a list of 10 options and present images that reflect those topics.  The emphasis is on creative interpretation and members are encouraged to make new images for the challenges.  This year our own in house expert on creativity, Jim Crew acted as moderator and the night was a lot of fun.  There were a lot of fun and creative work on show and everyone enjoyed the night.  

Here are a few images from the night.

Challenge 1 for 2018 - On the Spot

This year we issued a challenge to our members to create 4 different images from the one location.  The photographer was allowed to turn around and take no more than one step in any direction away from their starting position.  As is usual for LCCP, our members rose to the challenge and presented a wide variety of images.  From a 360 degree panorama, a series of images made in the misty reflections of a bathroom mirror, to views of the same location taken at different times, there were many interesting interpretations presented.  Here are a few:

Challenge 2 - Self Portraiture

This week we had our second challenge for the year - Self Portraiture.  This followed on from the presentation earlier in the year by Almitra Hill where she demonstrated some ideas and techniques.  One again we had a wide variety of creative and intriguing images from the members.  From a scary multiple reflection series to some revealing images that spoke to the photographer's interests and backgrounds, plus some personal insights, we had a wide mix of creative image making on display.  We also had the pleasure of welcoming some new visitors and old friends who came along on the night.

The Photo Challenge - 10 topics

For our first challenge this year the members had a choice of 5 out of 10 suggested topics to cover in a series of images.  Some chose to cover multiple topics in the one image while others chose some unique and different approaches.  

The topics available were: Moving water, A long exposure, A lone tree, A splash or red, A silhouette, People from above, A worm's eye view, Blurred crowds, Car park abstracts or an historic building. 

Once again we had a fun night with lots of discussion, some friendly banter and a lot of laughs.  Below are a selection of images from the night.

In the Rain

This years challenge was 'In the Rain' and given the amount of rain we have had on almost every one of our club outings we were sure to have some great photos. We were not disappointed.

On an very wet and windy evening our diehard members came out and the selection of images was fantastic. Select an image below to view in full, this is just a sample of the digital images provided on the night. Great work everyone!
