Update to Competition Topic: Faces & Figures

Hi Everyone,

Just a short note to let you know that we have updated the April 2021 Faces & Figures competition sub-topic. It is “Drama”. (The July 22 blog post on this year’s competition topics reflects this update.)

If you are looking for some inspiration or tips, you may wish to attend Adrien Duey’s RAPC presentation on September 29. He will be talking about Keeping the Drama in Your Photography. We often witness dramatically lit scenes that we would love to photograph. These wonderful opportunities can be very challenging to shoot, and to print. The problem: very high contrast. Adrien will show how we can conserve the beauty in dramatically lit situations (portrait and still life), using a simple and effective lighting technique – on location and in the studio.

Hope to see you all on the 29th and we look forward to seeing your dramatically lit entries in Faces & Figures in April 2021!

The Competitions Committee
