Set Subjects

Monthly competitions at the Bay and Basin Camera Club consist of two sections, an Open section where any photograph may be entered, and a Set Subject competition, where entered photographs must relate closely to, and clearly reflect, the Set Subject which is chosen by the committee and advertised up to a year in advance.

The object of the Set Subject competition is to encourage members to try subjects that they might normally avoid, hopefully stretching their creativity, increasing their photographic knowledge and improving their photography.

Members are encouraged to take photos specifically for the Set Subject, rather than rummaging through shoe boxes or hard drives searching for a photo that fits the subject.

Please email Lois or Brett with your set subject suggestions. A list of possible set subjects can be found here - Set Subjects Suggestions

Guidelines for upcoming Set Subjects

Disclaimer: the images shown below may not fit the set subject - it is always up to the discretion of the judge ...


September 2018 - Scale (print)

Scale can be a set of scales, a figure in the image that shows the scale of the landscape, fish scales or somebody scaling a rock climb - as in the photos below - or it can be something totally different from all of these. Use your imagination!

October 2018 - Frame within a Frame (digital)

Is the border of the image a frame so you only need to include one frame in the image, or does your image need another frame or two? It is up to the judge, but beware!

Nature's textures are everywhere, but how best to illustrate them? That is your problem - and your challenge.

Racing could be car racing, horse racing, people running or swimming, a couple of kids running along a beach, two snails on a wall or even a heart beating rapidly ...

February 2019 - Green (print)

Green - trees, lantern, putting, frog - there are lots of green things out there, but the trick is to take a "good" green photo!

March 2019 - Creative (digital)

Creative can pretty much be anything, with any edits applied, but the original image or images have to be something you have taken with your camera!
