Set Subject: Abstract
Abstract photography is the expression of ideas and emotions by using elements such as colours, lines, shapes and textures without attempting to create a realistic picture – any subject, no matter how ordinary, can become abstract depending on the way it is photographed.
More often than not what you leave out is just as important as what you leave in.
There are no rules about composition or framing – it all comes down to you, your view and what you find interesting or beautiful – you are only limited by your vision and ideas.
Ways to get started:
- Choose strong shapes
- Get up close
- Use colour to grab attention
- Seek out texture
- Look for repeating patterns
- Use lines and curves
- Photograph reflections
- Shoot through another object
- Capture shadow
- Blur your images

The image must be taken so as to show a scene which lies below the photographer. The height from which the image is taken is immaterial.

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: Song or Film Title
The image must bring to mind the title of a song or film which is in the public domain, either recent or historical. This can be achieved either by word association or scene association with elements of the image providing clear clues as to the title of a valid song or film.
