DPC Photo Night is Wednesday, November 10, 2021

November is coming upon us with its shorter days, cold crisp weather, spooky Hallowe’en nights just past and thoughts of Remembrance Day and the bravery of those who served.

Our themes this month mosty reflect this time of year with two extra themes to keep it interesting. The first one builds upon the Black and White presentation by our guest speaker Cole Thompson and provides a chance for you to practice the techniques he shared with the group. We are challenging you to present a photo taken in colour and your vision of it in black and white, so that we may see what you started and ended with. You will present both photos to BeforeBW; your colour image being the before (1) and your black and white vision image (2) being the after.

Th next theme is inspired by Remembrance Day. The challenge is to present a photo which honours bravery, valour, sacrifice or Heroism and what that might mean in its different forms. Is there a hero in your life? We can think of our Covid pandemic and the sacrifices made on that front line or the front line of the environmental movement, indigenous rights, or homelessness, to name a few. There are many sacrifices made by individuals to achieve a goal and to help others.

The colours of the season, such as orange, yellow, and gold inspired our next challenge theme of Warm Colours (WColours). And, our last challenge theme is Derelict. Here is a link to give you some ideas.https://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-58841907

If there is an image that doesn’t fit into the above categories, submit it under Open. Time permitting, we’ll show those as well.

Note: Each member can submit up to 2 images for each of the challenge categories: Heroism, Warm Colours, Derelict and Open. We ask that members only submit 1 image set for the category BeforeBW, showing their vision of BW with a corresponding before colour image.
