Lunch time, 2005 © Jesse Marlow

Happy New Year Everyone, our first competition entries are due at the first meeting of the year, members should have received an email from Tania, our Competition Steward. If you didn't receive an email can you please confirm we have your email address correct; shoot me an email

The first competition's set subject is "Street Photography" and we also have an open competition. 

Gayle provided a great list of street photographers for you to check out as inspiration: 

Helen Levitt:

Vivien Maier:

Garry Winogrand:

Jesse Marlo:

Saul Leiter:

Robert Doisneau:

Henri Cartier-Bresson:

Remember a street photographer shouldn't be setting up their image, it's about capturing people as they go about their business most often unaware they have been caught on camera. Of course that doesn't mean you can't find a scene you'd like to use and wait for the perfect subject to cross its path, you just aren't supposed to be directing the scene and subjects. 

And don't be afraid of gloomy days... umbrellas and puddle jumping make for some great images. 

Get amongst the people and capture a "decisive moment"

Can't wait to see what you make of the first competition. 

Entries due February 9th. Digital entries only this time around send them to
