TPS Competition Night

Set Subject: Conceptual

Conceptual photography illustrates an idea.  The subject of conceptual photography is often staged to represent an idea.  The ‘concept’ is both ‘preconceived’ and, if successful, understandable in the completed image.  It is most often seen in advertising where the picture may reiterate a headline or catchphrase that accompanies it.

Judge: TBA

TPS Competition Night

Set Subject: At Night

Ideally this set subject encompasses any image taken at night – the aim is to illustrate some aspect of that time when we are in darkness – after the sun as set and there are no effects of twilight on the night sky.  There are many interesting subjects that can be shot at night using long exposure – use your imagination to capture the activity of the night.

TPS Competition Night

Set Subject: Dominant Colour

The key colour is the main colour in an image. Often, the key colour in an image is that which is the most dominant. Allowing one colour to dominate can lead to a powerful image. This is stronger when a primary colour (redblue or yellow) is the dominant colour.

The colour can be but does not have to be 100% of the image.  Images can be created in natural light, filtered studio light, a filter on the lens or manipulated in Photoshop.  These can also be called monochromatic.
