Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin, Shoalhaven, NSW
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

November 2017 - The Colour Orange (digital)
Orange is both a large round juicy citrus fruit with a tough bright reddish-yellow rind, and the reddish-yellow colour. Technically, this is #FFA500 or rgb (255,165,0). It is also a town in NSW and also represents Protestants in Ireland. It is also associated with the Rajneesh movement. Go crazy!
December 2017 - Water in Motion (print)
Water in Motion will probably provide us with milky waterfalls (see below), ocean waves (see below), droplets in water and the usual cliches. Something different would be nice and will probably be rewarded!
February 2018 - Money (digital)
If you don't know what money is, heaven help you!
March 2018 - Repeating Shapes (print)
The repetition of shapes is one of the most used ideas in photography.
April 2018 - Night Lights (digital)
Lights, taken at night. Not necessarily those little lamps that have a nice glow that you put in your kids' bedrooms so they are not afraid of the dark ...
May 2018 - Fun in the Sun (print)
Pretty obvious, really ...
June 2018 - Odd Couples (digital)
Oscar and Felix. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Laurel and Hardy. Jack Spratt and his wife ... the list goes on! It could be a couple who are different from each other, but then maybe it could be a couple that are different from everybody else!
