It is important to realise that every photographer may interpert each subject quite differently to the next person. The definitons below are therefore very brief, and are only to be used as a guideline……

FEBRUARY       Landscape: Feb 11th

MPS Club Landscape Definition:
The club's applicable definition of a Landscape for this purpose is as follows: “While a prominent feature of the image should be a landform, this definition does include where the land meets the sea /ocean or lake. Images can therefore show some representation of both land and water. It does not include Cityscapes.”

MARCH             Songs/Rhymes/Poems: March 10th

Photographs inspired by or depicting a song, rhyme or poem.

APRIL                Eyes: April 14th

Eyes should be the dominant part of the image. They could be the eyes of an animal, human or otherwise

MAY                   Man-made Structures: May 12th

Any structure created by humans, as opposed to a natural structure e.g. a drinking vessel, a bridge or building, a motor vehicle.

JUNE                  Portrait: June 9th

MPS Club Portrait Definition:
“ Photographs of single subject or group portraiture for example babies, children, parents, grand- parents, families, Zoo, farm and domestic animals”

JULY                  Numbers are Everywhere: July 14th

Numbers could be written numerals or numbers of things e.g. car number plates, dozens of buttons, letterboxes.

AUGUST           Odd Couples: Aug 11th

NOVEMBER     Action Shots: Nov 10th

An image that shows someone or something in motion. The world is full of movement. Record a blurred image to convey the impression of motion, or 'freeze' the image to capture a moment in time e.g. racing cars, dogs playing on a beach, a person leaping into a pool.
