PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION proudly sponsored by Lowepro


Our March theme is 'Black and white'

After last months 'colour' theme we decided it would be fitting to make this months theme 'Black and white'. Shooting in colour is very different to black and white where shapes, textures, tones, shadows and highlights playing an important role in a succesfull image.
