Monochrome

The RAPC is adopting the CAPA definition for Monochrome: A black and white work ranging 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. A sepia image is considered a monochrome image. A ‘duo-toned’ image is not considered a monochrome image for the purposes of this competition. Hand-of-man and infrared is permitted.

Close to Home: Prince Edward Island with Stephen Desroches

Meeting link: https://meet2.raphotoclub.ca/b/adm-spv-woy-iac

Stephen is an outdoor and editorial photographer based in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Quote: "I love to travel as much as anyone else, but there is a significant value in staying focused on "close to home”. Our everyday surroundings offers the big advantage of time, waiting for preferred conditions, revisiting locations, and taking the time to fully explore a location. With my Island borders currently closed, my circle of adventure is limited to no more than a 2-hour drive. That can be a serious motivation killer at times but it also provides an excellent opportunity to tell and document better stories. What is travel for one person, is home to someone else, and knowing an area well can be a significant advantage over anyone flying in for a two-week stay. We do not need to wait for the next travel destination to do great work."
