Set Subject: Action

This can include animate or inanimate objects involved in any form of action. It is not limited to human activity. The possibilities are infinite but as long as the main thrust of the image implies action then it will be acceptable under the definition.

Set Subject: Self Portrait

A Self-portrait is a representation of an artist photographed by the artist.  The self-portrait is more than a selfie or snapshot because it is about capturing the essence of the artist’s identity and attitude and personality.

The self-portrait can be considered as an act of introspection, self-exploration or a visual diary.

Consideration needs to be given to background, dress and position, angle and can include several approaches – environmental, constructionist, candid and creative.

Set Subject: Antique

An antique has value because of its aesthetic or historical significance, and its age, beauty, and rarity. Something may be very old, but uninteresting or very common, and the key is to find something that you can photograph well.

How old is antique, there is the saying, “Grandmothers are antique little girls.” But we who are in that age of life may not like being called elderly, let alone antique. However, what about some genuinely elderly people approaching the age of antique (100 years) with their beautiful wrinkles?
