This month’s theme is all about angles, wide angles to be specific. Experiment with distortion and scale with this month’s 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.

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.
June 2018 THEME
Wide Angle – #codpzawideangle
- Simply by zooming a lens to a longer focal length and by changing the aperture for a shallow depth of field, we can create stunning photographs. But, how often have you explored the wide angle end of the spectrum?
- To create an image that is engaging and has a good focal point with a wide angle lens can be daunting. Practice makes perfect and that’s exactly why this month’s photo challenge is a must.
- This month’s theme is all about wide angle, distortion and scale. It can be in the form of a landscape, architectural image or even a portrait with exaggerated features.
- Submission deadline – 15 July 2018
