Stuck at Home Weekly Image

Week 12 – BCC and Mystery Object


Two fun themes for week 12, BCC and a Mystery Object…

1. BCC

We all know BCC is the abbreviation for Bedford Camera Club. The task this week is to submit one or more stunning photos with the title using the initials BCC. For instance:  Big Coloured Cup,  Beautiful Cream Candle,  Backend of Cute Cow. The sillier the better.

2. Mystery Object

We have all seen pictures for “Guess what this is”, often, but not always, a macro shot of an everyday object from an unexpected angle. John D stumped us with many fine examples at the start of Lock Down. Now it’s your turn. You can put the answer in the title or, if you intend to join the club’s Zoom meeting on the 23rd, you may prefer to reveal your mystery object then.


Enter up to three images which can be of the same theme or a mix and match.

Your pictures are to be taken during the week beginning Monday, June 15th and the closing date is Sunday, 21st June 11.59 pm. Submit to the usual PhotoEntry > Stuck At Home event.

Optional extras…

Your Title and Comments

Optionally include additional and interesting information about your image, e.g. how you took or processed it, by adding it to the CAPTION in Lightroom (or DESCRIPTION in Photoshop) metadata field. Or send it to me in a separate email and for which image title. These will be seen with your image in the online album. Also the TITLE metadata field can be used to display your title in bold in the online album.


To request a personal critique, from one of the club’s best photographers, of one or more of your images, please email critiques@bedfordcameraclub.co.uk with the TITLE(S) of your image. The critique may be discussed at the members’ Zoom meeting on Tuesday unless you state in your email PRIVATE.


The images in the online album are now being added in the same order that you have sequenced them in PhotoEntry, i.e. image 1 of 3 will be the first image of your three in the album, image 2 will be second etc. Thus if you have a sequential “panel” of images they will appear consecutively. However, they may get split over two rows; if this is an issue let me know by email, in advance, and, if you are lucky, I will remember to isolate them into one row.

Your Opportunity to Set the Theme

Each week we are looking for a different member to set the theme. If you would like to have a go please email me and I will send you more details.  Basically you need to (a) select a theme that any member can take part in, even if locked at home, with any type of camera, (b) a short text to describe, and possible ideas on how to approach, the theme, and (c) one or more illustrative images. I will do the rest for you.
