2018 Dec. 19: Contests – Digital – Street

Our next competition will be Wednesday, 19 December 2018. We will have our digital contests. You may enter three digital images.

The theme this month is Street. Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places.Framing and timing can be key aspects of the craft with the aim of some street photography being to create images at a decisive or poignant moment. Street photography can focus on emotions displayed, thereby also recording people’s history from an emotional point of view. Click here for examples of Street Photography.

Competition rules, which include how to prepare your entries are posted on our website http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/

  • Digital –
    • Email your digital entries in by Tuesday, at noon. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to is contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • Send your images as email attachments. Mac users need to put their images in a zip file and attach the zip file to the email.
    • Resize your images to 1024 pixels on the long side (1024 x ??? or ??? x 1024) and 72 DPI.
    • Files should be named according to the following convention:
      • A class identifier, ‘n’ for novice or ‘u’ for unlimited, should prepend the file name and be followed by an underscore.
      • The image name should appear next. For multi-word titles, it is helpful to either capitalize the first letter of each word or separate each word with an underscore. Although most mechanisms of uploading/transferring/emailing files handle spaces in titles, this is not universal. If you have problems sending files with space-separated titles, try the methods mentioned above instead.
      • An underscore and the owner’s first and last initials should follow the title.
      • Finally, make sure the file extension (.jpg) exists.
      • Examples: Here are file name samples using the above convention:
        • u_BridgeOnTheRiverKwai_cb.jpg
        • u_bridge_on_the_river_kwai_cb.jpg
        • n_thistitleisveryhardtoread_cb.jpg
        • n_some have trouble with this_cb.jpg
    • We will send you an email to confirm we have received your images and that they are named and sized appropriately. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the contest chairman at contests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • If all else fails, you may bring your images to the meeting on a USB drive, but we may not be able to put them into the contest.

2018 Oct. 13: Classic Street Photography by Leo Howard Lubow

“What the Masters Can Teach Us”

by Leo Howard Lubow

A One-Day Seminar  //  Saturday, October 13, 2018  //  9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Comfort Inn, & Suites BWI

What makes a great street photograph? What techniques, equipment, compositional elements and psychology help elevate street shooting to a fine art? In this projector-driven seminar we’ll explore these questions and others as we view and deconstruct the work and general approach of a variety of street masters, including Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Elliot Erwitt, Diane Arbus, Sebastião Salgado, Garry Winogrand, Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier, and a host of others whose work we promise you’ve never seen.  Along the way, we’ll also consider whether all great street photographers have at least one element in common:  an underlying vision or personal philosophy of the world.
