September 2021

Doors -  They can add a pop of color on a drab day, frame your subject beautifully or be used as a storytelling element to draw the viewer in. They can be symbolic, iconic or just pretty. Colorful doors can add dimension, line and scale to your frame. Or, they can stand alone as fun subjects to photograph on your travels or in your own neighborhood.

Curves & Lines - (CAPA) - Curved lines in a photograph create an effect completely different to that of straight lines. Curved lines have the effect of slowing the photograph down and suggesting time passing. Because a curved line takes longer to get from point A to point B, it suggests a tranquil, restful mood and having time to get there. 
November 2021
Monochrome - (CAPA) A black and white work fitting from the very dark grey (black) to the very clear grey (white) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey. A black and white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work able to stand in the black and white category. On the other hand a black and white work modified by a partial toning or by the addition of one colour becomes a colour work (polychrome) to stand in the colour category. 
December 2021
Fog - Photographing in the fog is very different from the more familiar photography in clear weather. Scenes are no longer necessarily clear and defined, and they are often deprived of contrast and color saturation. 
January 2022
Negative Space - The area between and around objects.
February 2022
Symmetry - In photography symmetry appears when parts of your composition mirror other parts. It is created when two halves of your scene look the same and balance each other out.
March 2022
Forgotten or Abandoned - Find the haunting beauty in abandoned places. 
April 2022
Fences - Fences offer a convenient element to use to compose an image. From using them to lead the eye along leading lines through to making them an obvious aid to composing with the rule of thirds, using a well placed fence line can make life a lot easier for the photographer.
May 2022
Vintage - Anything vintage - cars, clothes, wine, etc.

June 2022 Night Photography - Images from the night. After twilight and blue hour.  Could be astro-photography.


Note: The word CAPA means that 6 images will be selected from the club images to compete in a Club competition with other Club members from the Canadian Association for Photographic Art.  The two competitions APAC will compete in this year are Curves and Lines and Monochrome.  You don’t have to be a member of CAPA to participate in these Inter-Club competitions.
