ACC October 2022 Competition Losing Images Still Life

October 14, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

The theme for October at the Arundel Camera Club was "Still Life".  

Still Life was defined as "A photograph of an inanimate object or group of objects arranged as the subject for a picture. It can serve as an exercise in skill and creativity, to show an artist's understanding of composition, his ability to depict color harmony, form, texture, and the effects of light upon the objects. Click here for examples of Still Life."

Judge Feedback: "I really wanted to include this, but this is such a simple collection if you will. I like the objects that are in this image. I like the fact you got this tape across the bottom for the crime scene but the way the images are placed just doesn't do anything. It's like how would you arrange these to make possibly a better story. This could very easily be turned into a who done it and what was you know, what was the tool, you know, what did our client in? What did out victim in? Was it the rope? Was it the pipe? You know, was it the knife? It's a who done it sort of image. In fact, it's called Clue, okay? Duh, But I just would have liked to have seen a little bit better arrangement of the actual items. So, for that reason, I'll take it out."

Judge Feedback: "I always love seeing antique cameras. Again, don't we all. A very nice composition with the book talking about the history of photography. A very wide perspective. A very wide composition. But I like this. Nice lighting. A good background. A grouping of three. I can see each camera perfectly. I can read the numbers off of each camera, no problem."

Made it through to the first round. It was the last image thrown out before awarding winners. Judges Feedback when he threw it out "One more. You guys are making this tough but keeping with the theme, I hate to do this but let's remove the cameras."

Judge Feedback: "Very simple but you can never beat the color red. Red just stands out on just about any photograph that you are doing. You got an antique knife. Probably from some foreign country that the photographer visited cutting a couple, a couple peppers, and it's a nice arrangement, good background, nice lighting."

Made it through first round. No more feedback when thrown out.
