Summer Project 2021-22

Details of Falkirk Camera Club summer project.

This project assumes that, for at least some of the summer, we can travel outwith our home area. Outlined below are various subjects to be photographed throughout the summer and some techniques to try.

Notes

  1. It is not a competition and competition standard is not required.
  2. Open to all members.
  3. You can select any subjects and submit up to 20 images.
  4. All images will be compiled into a slideshow to be shown on a club night (or via the website if meetings are not possible). Members are asked to concentrate on the basic skills, Focus, Exposure and Composition. Some metadata will be shown to help understand how the picture was taken (Shutter speed, Aperture, ISO, Focal Length as we have done in previous years).
  5. You are not expected to talk about your image.
  6. Standard PDI size applies (1600 x 1200px max).
  7. All images should be taken after the project start date (16/04/21).
  8. Please try to vary the subjects.
  9. Images should be submitted as individuals.
  10. The project is for fun and to encourage members to take pictures of subjects you may not normally consider and try some techniques that may be new to you.
