Blackburn and District Camera Club Annual Photo Challenge 5 June 2023
Each year we run a special event, The Photo Challenge. This is a team competition pairing members with different abilities to work together to achieve 10 photographic challenges in the space of one evening. Its not like a normal photo competition because whilst we expect good photography, the teams must fulfil all the briefs.
This year we returned to the village of Whalley for our challenge, a small village in which there are many photo opportunities.
Whalley has a rich selection of subjects, not all of which are directly referred to in the challenges.
There was plenty of scope to make an interesting and rewarding Challenge collection.
This year's challenges were:
Whalley Village 1
The Village of Whalley one of the most picturesque in the Ribble Valley. Your challenge here is to capture an aspect of the village that shows this. Wander round and find the perfect view of the village. Consider the way you would want to capture this. Consider the architecture, floral displays and the setting ie Whalley Nab. What I want to see is Whalley at its idyllic best. I know Whalley well so will have high expectations!
This challenge is to use details in an image- it’s not just about using a macro-Lense to get a close up! I want to see some photo thinking at work. Consider use of depth of files to isolate/include, framing, layers, reflections, facial detailing and any other creative ideas you may have. Your task is to give me a Detail image that has real punch!
