Week 7 Addendum

The Stuck at Home event this week is for ICM, Out of Focus and/or Silhouettes, see the previous post

I forgot to mention that the ICM subject was also suggested by Jim Boud who included this link for more ideas to explore…


Thanks Jim, sorry I forgot to include this in my post, I have only just noticed it in my rather long list of fiendish subjects for future weeks.


Week 5 Closing and Theme 6

Week 5 – Composition A

The closing date is today, 11.59pm Sunday 3rd May.

Week 6 – Covers

After week 4, Minimalism, which I thought would be a challenging theme (but we had more images submitted than weeks 1 to 3, which was great) I thought week 5, Compositions, thirds and frames, would be a more relaxing theme to go for.  This week we are back to a more challenging theme, something to get your teeth into.

A book publisher has 5 paperback books he needs covers for. For week 6 you have been commissioned to submit images for the covers of 1 to 3 for these books. The books are normally rectangular in portrait format but landscape format could be acceptable to the publisher.

The important aspect is that they need to include enough negative space for the book title and author’s name to be included.


Week 4 and 5 Images

Week 4 Images

The final call for the week 4 images on Minimalism is tonight (Sunday April 26th 11.59 pm)

Lightroom and Photoshop Workshops

Last night, 21st, we had an interesting, online talk from Matt K about Lightroom and Photoshop. He started from the premise that you had them installed but was perhaps not using them very much and only touched on a few aspects of the Develop module.

Matt does sell his video tutorials and currently at a 50% discount. He is an excellent teacher and I can only assume these tutorials are well worth an investment.



“We are all in the midst of it now, but one day this pandemic will be history. The full impact of the COVID-19 crisis will be important to document and evaluate for future generations looking back at this historic event.”

The Higgins Museum, Bedford is reaching out to photographers and others to help document these days for future generations. Can you help?
