In the Spotlight

Bi-Monthly Competition
Theme: Abstract
May 8

Abstract photography concentrates on emotional response created by forms, color, line, patterns and texture. Often there is no conventional scene though the abstract might be created from realistic elements. Abstract images can be created in many ways, including extreme close ups, an unusual perspective or creative development.

Have you caught a humorous situation with your camera? Your pets? Your kids? Something unexpected? Find your best fun shots and share them – or look for opportunities in the next few months. Maybe even better, imagine them and stage it. Make us laugh!

New Club Competition Rules

We are trying out a new method of submitting photos to our bi-monthly competitions. We will email you a SmugMug link that will be valid until midnight Friday before the competition. Just click on the link or paste it into your favorite browser and "Click and drag your photos into the SmugMug window."

You can view detailed info on our Upload examples file and our metadata file. Also, questions can be directed to our new SmugMug Librarian Ann Barber.

Briefly, the rules are:

  • Save your photos as .jpg files.
  • Name your file "First Last #.jpg"
    Ex. "Jane Doe 3.jpg"
  • No need to resize your photo.
  • Try to keep each file below 7mb
  • Add an IPTC metadata Title
