09/02/23Competition: Record PDI and print
The aim of this competition is to demonstrate photographical technical skills, rather than artistic appeal, to create images of buildings and structures, or sections of them, images of art work, statuary, glassware, ceramics etc and other inanimate objects. When taking the image, one should imagine, it being used to illustrate a text book about the subject or in a museum guide. Thus requiring complete and sharp detail, with true horizontals and no converging nor diverging lines. The title is extremely important. It can be quite detailed in order to give all the necessary information about the subject matter.
