2013 Competition Assignments

This list will be posted soon on the competition info page with additional details and explanations but for now here is the basic information so that you can get started. For our next competition meeting in January assigned images will be photographed using any single light source other than sunlight. To be clear, this excludes multiple lights and/or sunlight. This is an opportunity for you to experiment with controlling the variables of light: intensity, duration, quality, direction, and color.

  • January – single light source (not the sun)
  • February – construct a still-life with found objects
  • March – self portrait
  • April – bugs (insects, spiders, centipedes, etc)
  • May – food and drink
  • June – emulate the masters
  • July – implied motion (not frozen action)
  • August – sports: the moment of impact
  • September – storyboard
  • October – landscape
  • November – portrait of a stranger (non-studio)
  • December – no competition

Beginning in January we will be implementing our new policy of requiring AA ranked members to act as the third judge during competitions. We feel this is an educational experience for those who judge and will provide a fresh perspective each month. Don’t be shy and don’t hesitate to contradict Robert or Jim – we want to hear your thoughts!

We will work our way down the AA rankings each month to pick the 3rd judge. If it’s someone’s turn and they are absent we will move down the list and the absent party will take their turn the following month if present.

Final rankings for 2012 will be posted after the awards are presented at the holiday party this week.
