For ICC members:

We may pair up beginners with more experienced photographers as required. Your challenge is to shoot the following 3 themes, while maintaining social distancing, and taking several photographs during the afternoon and evening: 

Themes: 

1. Portrait/self portrait in or around the museum
2. Backlit subject
3. Any Old Iron

Bring camera and tripod - if you'd like to borrow one we'll bring a few along (please let us know as a comment).

ICC members can take a break for a drink in the education room just by the toilets at 8:30. 

It’s ok to go back to the SMM if you want to improve on what you got on the day, and for those who'd rather go down separately, feel free to try over the following week up to 05/10. Those who couldn’t get down because of strict isolating, could try to put a few fresh (newly taken) images up on similiar themes.    Over the following week you will process and edit your images and select what you think are the best three photographs to suit the themes – one for each of the themes above. Upload your processed pics before Tuesday 05 Oct - 2021-22 SC2 - https://irvinecc.co.uk/competitions-members
