Week 27 of 52-Week Photography Challenge

IT’S WEEK 27 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge! We are over halfway through the year now! Well done for sticking with us – and “Welcome!” to those who have joined us during the last 6 months. The aim of the Photography Challenge is to challenge yourself and get into the useful habit and routine of taking photographs regularly and with purpose.

WEEK 27 – SYMMETRY AND PATTERNS
Look for symmetry and patterns in both the natural and human-made world.
Symmetry in photography refers to two parts of an image with a similar, if not identical shape, structure or format. Symmetry in a photograph creates a visual sense of harmony, balance and order that appeals to the viewer’s eyes.
The repetition of lines, shapes, tones, or colours can create interesting images. Also, look for those instances where the pattern or symmetry is broken; these asymmetrical elements can add an interesting factor to your photograph.
Your challenge – use symmetry and patterns to create stronger photographs.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.

E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

Open Photography Competition at Preston Show

Hedon Viewfinders photography club has sponsored the photography competition at PRESTON SHOW with trophies and will help promote the event.

A ‘new’ Annual Photography Competition is to take place and judged at the PRESTON SHOW on Saturday 31 July 2021. Hedon Viewfinders photography club has sponsored the competition with trophies and will help promote the event.

The traditional village show in Preston features classes of entry from ‘best vegetables’, ‘cookery’, ‘wine making’ through to various ‘arts’ and ‘crafts’ including ‘photography’. There has been a photography element as part of the traditional annual show in Preston for many years. However, this year, Hedon Viewfinders hopes to encourage more interest in photography, more entries from local people and a bigger exhibition of local talent at the show.

There will be three classes of entry. You can enter only one photograph into the competition in one of the classes.

  • Colour,
  • Black & White, or
  • Altered Reality (this category will suit those who love to artistically manipulate their images).
