CODP PHOTO CHALLENGE – July 2018
This month’s theme is all about light. Winter affords us late sunrises and early sunsets, ideal for sleeping in and still getting that perfect morning shot. Show us your best sunrise or sunset shot in this month’s photo challenge.
Each month the College of Digital photography will post a theme that will not only challenge your photographic technique, but also push your creative boundaries.
Post your 3 of your best edited images either to Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #codpza & the relevant hashtag for the monthly theme. You can also tag us in the posts @codpza for feedback on your images.
All submissions need to be up on the 15th of each month. Submissions will be showcased on our social media channels, with regular entrants standing the chance to win course & workshop vouchers! Search the hashtags to see what some of our lecturers are getting up to as well.
Interpreting a photographic theme
Understanding the theme is critical in training your photographic eye. Words act as creative prompts which help the photographer become observant to photographic opportunities that would often be lost.
A photographic theme is merely a word prompt or phrase that inspires a photograph. It does not have to be taken literally and you may interpret the theme in any way you choose. The main purpose of the theme is to evoke ideas that will assist your photographic process.
July 2018 THEME
Rise/Set – #codpzariseset
- A favourite past time of many photographers is to take the time to watch the sun rise or set, a beautiful reminder to appreciate each and every single day
- If you’re an early bird, try to capture what morning means to you or, if you fancy yourself as a night owl, post a shot of the day coming to an end and perhaps include the cityscape that you live in
- Vibrant colours and silhouettes, or long exposures and HDR are all welcome
- Submission deadline – 15 August 2018
