Just to inform our members due to double bookings, that our additional workshops for February and March will be postponed to a later date. We shall inform you as soon as the new dates are finalised.
Reminder: First Club Competition is MACRO in Print (with a copy on USB for Corinne)
Refresh your memory on file sizing and rules here.
Close-up photography is to move in closer than you normally would, to take a photograph of part of the whole, rather than the whole.
eg – if taking a picture of a facial portrait then a close-up would be the photo of the eye or ear etc.
Anything can be photographed close-up keeping in mind that photographic interest and composition still apply. Use of a wide angle can distort the image to provide a unique aspect or a telephoto lens can be used to zoom in much closer than normal.
Always ensure that the image is in focus by taking note of the minimum focusing distance of the lens/camera that you are using and note that depth of filed can be an issue. You should preferably be using a tripod and manual focus to ensure sharp imagery.
NEW: You may now substitute one OPEN image in your division.
That means, if you normally entered 3 images in your division, it will be now be 2 in the monthly subject + 1 open.
Just ensure you label your image with Div1 or 2__OPEN_ Member Number_ Title
