Winter is upon us and so is our new photo challenge theme. We would love to see what you come up with so be sure to enter. The world is truly your oyster with this month’s theme!
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.
May 2018 THEME
Food – #codpzafoodie
- We are all guilty of ordering a meal based on what it looks like in the photograph, this is your opportunity to show us what’s on your plate
- This theme can be interpreted in many ways, demonstrate fast shutter speeds by showing us what an egg looks like as it hits a hill of flour, or a macro shot of the raspberries on your chocolate brownie, or an abstract of an eating utensil
