May Club Night will be held on the 8th May 2018, starting at 7:30pm.
We meet at the Methodist Church Hall, 6 Bader Street, Melville, Hamilton (opposite the Bader Street shops).
Our Set Subject being presented is ‘Silhouette’ and also our ‘Open Category’.
This is also the last night for entering the Set Subject ‘Landscape’ and ‘Open Category’ for judging
A Landscape is when Natural Scenery dominates the image. It is about ‘place’ and ‘space’. It is a picture that should make a connection with the viewer, and tell a story. The subject is the ‘land’ – the earth, sea, and sky… the natural surface of planet Earth. The landscape photo may include only the land, or only the sea, or both. It may include or exclude the sky. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. Typically, people and animals are not shown in a landscape, unless they are relatively small in the image or have been included in the composition to show scale.
From a purist perspective, some photographers argue that the sea coast, the city and man-made structures in general should not be included in a landscape, and images that do contain them are more accurately called seascapes or cityscapes.
However, if natural scenery dominates an image, it can probably be accurately termed a landscape, even though there may be a farmhouse in the distance, a city skyline on the horizon or a road or path in the foreground.
