Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin, Shoalhaven, NSW
Monthly competitions at the Bay and Basin Camera Club consist of two sections, an Open section where any photograph may be entered, and a Set Subject competition, where entered photographs must relate closely to, and clearly reflect, the Set Subject which is chosen by the committee and advertised up to a year in advance.
The object of the Set Subject competition is to encourage members to try subjects that they might normally avoid, hopefully stretching their creativity, increasing their photographic knowledge and improving their photography.
Members are encouraged to take photos specifically for the Set Subject, rather than rummaging through shoe boxes or hard drives searching for a photo that fits the subject.

September 2018 - Scale (print)
Scale can be a set of scales, a figure in the image that shows the scale of the landscape, fish scales or somebody scaling a rock climb - as in the photos below - or it can be something totally different from all of these. Use your imagination!
October 2018 - Frame within a Frame (digital)
Is the border of the image a frame so you only need to include one frame in the image, or does your image need another frame or two? It is up to the judge, but beware!
November 2018 - Nature's Textures (print)
Nature's textures are everywhere, but how best to illustrate them? That is your problem - and your challenge.
