Monthly Image Themes for 2018-2019
September 2018 – Portland Skyline
- Try for a unique view of the Portland skyline, either down town, stump town, or the east side.
October 2018 – Action
- A depiction of dramatic movement. The subject could be animate or inanimate, and the movement could be imminent or ongoing, but it should be dramatic: something involving rapid motion, change in direction, or an emotional component.
November 2018 – Past Its Prime
- Any subject that it starting to look a little shabby such as old cars, barns, old buildings, drooping flowers, people that look like they are on the downhill slide.
December 2018 – Rain Reflections
- Night shots of lights, buildings etc reflected in the rain on streets and sidewalks
January 2019 – Curves
- Curves invite a viewer’s eye to follow paths through an image. Look for curves that invite the viewer into your scene, and/or use curves to add grace, rhythm and energy to your images. For examples see: https://digital-
February 2019 – Multiple Exposures
- Two or more unique exposures superimposed on each other either done in-camera or in post processing. Does not include HDR, focus stacking etc.
March 2019 – Deliberately breaking the rules of composition
- For example, putting the primary subject somewhere other than the rule of thirds would suggest, or placing the horizon dead center vertically
April 2019 – Through Window
- Could be night shots taken through windows from outside or daylight from inside to inside
May 2019 – At Night
- Anything shot after dusk and before dawn. That includes but not limited to a Milky Way shoot, star trails, city skyline at night to that grungy back alley after dark (if you are brave enough).
