Online Meeting – Set Subject Challenge
Nov 1 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

BACC Online
The October Special Subject is:
“Autumn Colours”
The Zoom Meeting is on Monday 1st November 2021

The September Special Subject Challenge is…..

“Autumn Colours”
if you find some nice looking fungi you can include them too!

Note that the Zoom project evening will be on
Monday 1st November at 7.00pm
A Zoom Code will be sent before the meeting date.

The maximum number of images per member is SIX but less than six is OK
All images must have been taken in the current month!

Upload your images on the club website where the drop-down menu now has an item for “Special Set Subjects”
Here is a shortcut:
https://www.bonaccordcameraclub.co.uk/special-set-subject/
Please load up your images before 15:00 on the day so I there is time to sort them out for displaying….
Some members would like to show their own images by screen-sharing on the meeting night rather than upload them to the website.
That’s OK. Just have your images loaded and ready for display so you don’t keep others waiting!

This is not a competition, it’s an informal “show and tell” project, but it may help you improve and  build up some competition material.
Be prepared to give a brief description of your interpretation of the subject and a give a bit of information about how you image was captured, adjusted, etc.
Get constructive comments from other members.
The idea is to go out (or stay in!) and take new pictures.
So photos should have to be taken within one month of the project evening.

Those who took part before will know the rules but here they are:
A random subject is chosen.
You take some photos based on your interpretation of the subject.
Upload at least one (max 6) images to the current Special Subject web gallery page.
Then join in on the Zoom project evening and show what you have done, how you did it give comments and get feedback.
Digital images should be JPEG format (Max 1600px wide, 1200px high, sRGB) as for club competition projection.

For upload you will need your user name and password.
If you haven’t already got one then you need to register.
To do that you will need a six-figure PIN Code – 270420
Your user name should be firstname(dot)surname in small letters.

If you have any suggestions to help improve the online experience please let us know.
Join in and  meet up online!
Enjoy!
